Worst Job I have Ever Had
I don’t even know where to start. I could go on and on but that would be boring to read. First off, I was hired for seasonal cashier. In January I was told I was I was done because there were no positions available. This was a lie and I called them out on it. After a while of talking to them, they decided to keep me. I now realize that I should have just left. It has only gotten worse. There is nothing I like about the job. From the stuck up managers who are way too young to know what they’re doing, to the annoying GSTLs who NEVER answer any of our calls and constantly bug us about the stupid red cards, to the ridiculous scheduling and pay.
For example, I requested a weekend off. I hadn’t had a weekend off in months and just asked for one. One of the days was not approved. So I asked the manager who does the scheduling if this meant the whole time I asked off wasn’t approved or just that one day. He said, “I don’t have any idea.” You do the scheduling! You should know these things! He told me to re-ask off and he’d approve it. So, I did. Do you think he approved it though? Of course not. They also NEVER check the swap shift schedule. I didn’t show up to a shift because I had gotten somebody to switch with me. Since it was never approved even though they had days to do it, I got in trouble!
I realize it is just retail but the pay is not good. There is no way to live alone off of the pay even working full time. Apparently, cashiers get paid the least. I don’t understand this because we constantly deal with customers and money. I was recently moved to the service desk. Does anybody know if service desk is supposed to pay more? But I shouldn’t complain, I did just get a whole 6 cent raise! I am not going to even know what to do with all that extra money! Ugh.
There are so many more things I could complain about but I’ll leave it at that. Target sucks. I always hear how Target is such a great place and treats their employees so much better than other places. Being someone who went from working at another retail store (Walmart) to working at Target, I know this is a LIE! I cannot wait to be done with this awful company.
