Worked my ass off for a 16 cent raise
After 5 months of high Redcard performance, always showing up early, and being their cart bitch when they didn’t have one, I received a whopping 16 cent raise.
I was under the impression that getting a lot of redcards was compensated in the form of raises, but I was sorely mistaken. I was expecting at LEAST a quarter. What an insulting raise. Even the Dairy Queen I used to work at gave better raises than this.
Target’s performance reviews are the most useless thing ever. The GSTL just handed me a piece of paper that had my score, my raise, and then that was pretty much it. When I asked him how l could improve, he basically just said “get more redcards.”
Seriously, 16 cents? Assuming I worked 40 hours a week (which almost never happens) that’s only an extra $6.40 a week. That isn’t even gas money! Fuck you Target. There are people who have been working there 3-4 years who make the same wage as me. That ain’t right.
That being said, time to start a new job search.
