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, like Wal-Mart, which tends to mistreat its employees with their stupid 40 hour rule. Meaning, we work forty hours and then we automatically have to go home. No matter if it's Wednesday and we need to work till Friday or not. Thereby screwing over those who have to work the whole week, pushing our duties onto them as well as their own and expecting them to get everything done within the set task time, which is always rediculously low. No overtime for us. Nope nope. That would be criminal, wouldn't it? I say that Target employees should be able to work over forty hours a week if they want to. They don't have to be paid overtime, just the regular wage. Don't these people realize we got families to feed, rent to pay, all that crap? Or do they give a crap?

Oh, and a place where opportunities for advancement are waved about like a carrot in your face before employment, thereby enticing unsuspecting people into their fold, and then mysteriously vanish upon employment.
Target worker to LOD (that's Leader on Duty, for those not in the know): When I was hired on here, I was told that there were plenty of chances to train for advancement and I have yet to see any of those chances. Now, was that the truth or was it just a bunch of Target...oops, I mean bullshit?

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
person 1: I wanna work at target!person 2: ahhh no, i wanna scream!

1.) Target is a corrupt store, that pushes workers to unreachable limits. The average worker keeps his job for 1 day to 30 days, before being fired or quits. Employee moral is always low, other workers pressure new comers to leave if the college option is open to them. Target employees have to call customers: guests, co-workers: team members, boss: leader, and put on a fake smile every day. There's two divisions of Target's work force. You work 40 hours a week and no more, over time can result in termination or time cut the following week.

Dayside: Working 10AM-12AM Dayside deals with guests, zones isles, get's harassed, and sells products. Day side always needs to be on their toes if a guest hits the infamous red box of doom in the isles. Day side needs to know the store or have their ass chewed out by Team Leaders. Day side gets fucked into 15 minute breaks, and the second highest fire rate in the store. Dayside hates the over night team.

Overnight: Where I work, and single handedly the longest 8 hours (plus) one can work at Target. You're locked in the store, and must stock the entire place in 8 hours. Including backstock. The night begins with the line, putting boxes that come off the line onto pallets then bowling those into aisles. After that you take break, then start pushing the isles. Take break, work, then leave. During this time bosses are everywhere telling you to hustle, and riding your ass. Overnight has the highest quit/fire rate in Target. No point in knowing people who join, they wont be there long enough.

Employees: Low moral, low self-esteen individuals, who are doomed to target. What they did in their life couldn't have been that bad to get this. If you have college options avaliable, take them. Your fellow employees pressure you to quit so you can avoid the agony of Target. Most people there are either people fresh from prison, or are 18-20 and have X* amount of kids.

*Any number between 1 and 8.
Target sucks, I spent my week's 40 hours in 2 days, now I get to suck dick to help pay for my house.

worst place to work at, if your in highschool. Even worse if your over 25 and are a team member not an LOD or teamlead. You get treated like shit an pushed to work long hours while being expected to finish 10 hours of work in 4. Everyone says its "Fast,Fun,and Friendly" when its really "Gay, Boring, and Pointless" cause you can never finish and the store always looks like shit. You get written up/ talked to for calling off because of actually being sick or a emergency. NEVER make friends here cause everyone is an asshole and just want you to work. LOD's make you do their work and you get yelled at for not finishing it. After a year of hard ass rape and sucking dick, you realize that you wanna quit and fuck everyone over just like they did to you. Oh and team members who go back to target when not working just to "shop" and actually just go to see their "friends" and chill are dumb fucking assholes, seriously you got nothing better to do? You complain about being there yet you go back there like a dirty fucking dog when not working.
Target sucks, everyone is an asshole. I know this cause I work there. Fuck target and their "Fast, Fun, Friendly" policy. Also "guests" are dumb asses, look for the item first then ask me, or try reading the big fucking signs above your head.
A store designed by a group of idiots who are apparently infatuated with the color red & live by the motto "Fast, Fun, & Friendly".
Employees don't know each other's names unless they read nametags, yet they are considered to be "Team Members".

Turning 18 means nothing to Target if you're still in high school- except that now you are eligible to get a Goddamn motherfucking Red Card & save an additional fucking 10%. No, you can't work more hours during the week. Minors may NOT exceed 3 hours & 45 minutes Monday-Friday or else one of the LOD's, or HR, will have a talk with you about legalities. (you're supposed to care)

GSTL's make people feel smart since they are by far the dumbest people in the world.
People in food are disgusting
LOD's get to talk at the morning, midday, & evening huddles. This makes them important.
The boys in electronics think they are studly & whoever has the keys to the X-Box games is really cool.
The operator is always a half-wit broad who doodles her boyfriend's name in between phone calls.
Guest Attendants.. (AKA CART BOYS) are stoners who just need some fresh air & free water.
AP/Hardlines 4 is a group of men who are either rent-a-cops, wannabe po-po's, or ex-security guards from some unknown company. Sometimes if you get lucky, you'll get an AP team leader (yup, leader, it's religious) who used to be in the army. Apparently shooting towel heads is comparable to catching people steal Modern Home towels?

Target team members need to understand that breaks are 15 minutes, NOT 16 & lunch breaks are 45 minutes, not 44. Another legality.(pretend to care)
Employees are not allowed to call in sick without being talked about.

Customers are referred to as "Guests" & are the rudest people in the world. They leave their carts everywhere in the store & will whine until Guest Service calls every local Target in search of their Mossimo sweater.


If you work at Target you are brainwashed to believe you are above Wal Mart & if you go within 1 mile of a Wal Mart you eye should start twitching. If it doesn't then you need to spend some more time reviewing the employee handbook.
My back hurts, my head is throbbing, my feet are numb, and I want to know if anyone needs a carryout or help fidning something. I've obviously been working at Target too long.

A more upscale version of Walmart. Thoroughly evil, it is run by people who are absolutely obsessed with getting more and more people to sign up for the Target VISA.

See Red & Khaki Hell
For the last time, I don't want a Target VISA.
