You can NEVER be fast enough for these people
I’ve worked for Target in a variety of work centers, and if there is one thing I have learned as of late, is that you can never move fast enough for these pricks. Management stands around laughing it up all day while you are expected to bust your ass every single minute of your shift, God help you if you’re caught talking to a friend for even a minute. I feel like a slave here while the masters sit back and crack their whip at any little mistake you make. When I’m working backroom, I go from one huge task to another thinking I accomplished something, only to be told four or five huge carts need to be backstocked before I leave in 20 minutes. Are you fucking kidding me? Of course the work doesn’t get done and I get to have a chat with my lazy ass boss who didn’t lift a fucking finger to help me all day. When I’m hardlines, I’m constantly assigned a crazy amount of carts to push by myself in addition to back up cashiering, calls, helping gusets, ect. If even one cart is left unpushed I get a boss groaning like I fucking inconvenienced him, despite working to the point of exhaustion all day to try to keep them happy. Now, I have no problem moving fast. I work out and am in good shape, but the amount of work expected of you is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen. These people give you shit hours and are too cheap to hire sufficient staff. They blame you for things not getting done instead of themselves. Never have I worked so hard and so quickly only to be told I’m a lazy ass by management at the end of the day. I’ve received multiple coachings that were completely out of my control. I tried to explain my ridiculous work loads to these assholes, but it was like talking to a brick wall. Fuck off. Makes you wonder why you put so much effort into a job that gives you shit hours and pays you less than $10 an hour.
