Target Sucks - We Hate Target and We Know We're Not Alone.

Who’s fault

If the holiday season here, Shouldn’t the GSTL be held responsible for ensuring that everyone on the front lanes has taken their breaks and lunches on time before they hit compliance.
yesterday I was 5 minutes away from hitting compliance and I get chewed out because I didn’t tell anyone that I was hitting the 6 hour mark. Personally, I dont think its my fault because the GSTL at my store have a clipboard with times that everyone should take their breaks and meals.

So, what do you think about it?

    The GSTL and LOD should both have PDTs that alert them when someone is close to compliance. If you were swamped with guests and weren't paying attention to the time, the GSTL/LOD should have stepped in or sent backup to your register.

    On the other hand, you could note the time you're supposed to go and (if allowed) set your phone to vibrate shortly before your break/meal is due. I'm not register trained, so I'm not sure if the registers have a clock on them or not.

    They try to make it out like it's solely one person's responsibility, but really it's supposed to be, you know, a team effort.

    call the supervisor and ask for your break

    With the busy season, things can get lost or forgotten, gstl is running all over the place.. You should be well aware of when you are going to hit compliance.
    During this time of year, your light should have gone on 1/2 hour before your compliance time so they could have someone replace you at the register...if you did that, told gstl and they chose to ignore you, then yes it's their fault.. Otherwise no I don't think it's anyone's fault but your own.

    today confirmed my suspicion about some of my GSTLs
    I asked when will I be able to take my first break, the GSTL responded, " Oh, I read the schedule wrong I told ***** to go to break, can you wait another 15 minutes
    ( the person that she told to go to break came in 1 hr after me)

    2nd incident I went to the GSTL and told her, make sure you dont forget about me so I can take my 30, she replied, " oh, yea make sure you keep reminding me because I am gonna forget

    I guarantee you if I report Target o the state of Florida Department of Labor my store will get their act together because in the state of Florida after the 6th hour, every minute the employee stays on the clock, the employer will be fined 10 grand a minute, and the employee cant be terminated because of the fine

  • Hate_Me says:

    Your GSTL is 100% responsible for your breaks being on-time and not in violation of compliance. Also, the LOD's have notifications on their PDA's for all employees whic alert them if someone is about to go non-compliant.

    But the GSTL's get in trouble by the ETL's if a cashier misses their lunch on time, and so therefore, the GSTL's take it out on the cashiers.

    Basically, what I'm trying to say here is "Fuck Target".

    The End.
