A store that prides itself on working people to death. Clock in at Target and you have no idea when you're actually getting off, scheduled hours mean nothing. They have a bizarre alphabet-soup way of describing everyone's position that no one understands, and everyone in management is called some kind of "leader".
Yes, my leader! Yavohl, mein leader! Twenty people clocked in at Target last week and were never seen again, prolly still on shift cause the go-backs aren't finished.

Target is store where if you last the first 90 days, you'll be stuck there for years. They will shaft you for money every chance they get, they will dock your base rate if you transfer, they will fuck up your check and not tell you, and when you want to get the money back, its to late. and don't look to the HR to get it back either. They work for the company and tell you they cannot do anything about it (which is a lie).
I worked at target for 5yrs and now I have a herniated disk. but Im a level one so my crappy insurance wont cover shit. Fuck you Becky at 1194 you two faced droppy dog lookin beoch. You will die miserable and pitiful. YA thats right wig hairs.

A place where they make you stay past 10:00 P.M. on weekdays, LODs like to take 30-minute 15-minute breaks, level ones get shafted out of everything, Target VISAs are ALL pushed on the cashiers, and level ones do more productive work than the higher levels who like to decorate the break rooms with needless decorations to celebrate someone giving birth to a retarded baby.
Target is very corruptive. When will the authorities see this???

A store that prides itself as being "upscale" but it is a horrible company to work for. All of the employees have some stupid abbreviation for their title. There are three types of people who work in Target; the loyalists who have a bulls eye tattooed on their asses, the people who are biding their time in between jobs, and the most tragic, the broken-spirited people who do not have the will to look for another job and take the abuse. The GSTLs are the worst people as they are drunk on their own power. The store manager is usually a figurehead. This company is like something straight out of Dickens. On top of all of this, the stores are so inefficiently run that it is a mystery that it maintains corporate status.
Target should be avoided due to its treatment of employees.

A corrupt, greedy corporation that prides itself on neglecting their employees while focusing all their efforts on guest experience, PR relations and embracing diversity. The job turnover rate is always high, morale is low and you get a nickel and dime raise every year for your dedication and hard work. They even dare say their wages are competitive with other retailers! Competitive with what, minimum wage?  Can you work overtime to compensate? No, No Target cannot afford that expense since they’re a multi-billion dollar corporation, it’s impossible! The corporate execs need that money to buy more cars, yachts and mansions. The workers at the store level are undervalued and underappreciated and their daily huddles belittles your esteem when you hear “WE MADE 120K YESTERDAY AND 5 MILLION THIS YEAR SO FAR AND YOUR GETTING MIN WAGE AND SUB-PAR BENEFITS”. It’s a simple concept most know, how you treat your employees affects how they treat your guests….and the poorest treatment is Target’s forte. Your job title is always inconsistent, the schedule of hours is bias and you’re always being micro-managed by the execs and team leads doing tons of tasks with little time. Their PR front is a shady, deceptive scam trying so hard to please every ethnic group, caring about their communities, and empowering you to make them the best company ever! Just a false front to brainwash you into believing they care when in reality, they want all your money….their laughing all the way to bank when you give into their propaganda. It’s all about making their corporate image look attractive while finding more ways to rip off their employees…and to say that conservative christians run target, huh? God save the U.S.A

Department store, competitor to Wal-Mart. Upscale-ness indicated by alternate pronunciation with a French twist on it.
I went shopping at Target.
