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?

Target is basically like walmart only its slightly upscale. They have stupid names for employees such as team members, lods, tlods, gstls, tps and ap. What the fuck is up with that. At most jobs these people are called employees, managers, assistant managers and security guards. This is just plain stupid. Red and khaki are probably the worst colors to wear. And whats with the tucking in of the shirts. Damn I hate tucking in my shirtT. Thanks ROB. And its only the guys that have to do it. I think its because target is sexist or something. Another thing with names is that we have to call our customers guests. What the fuck they are not staying here like in a hotel. Zoning is probably the most useless thing I have ever done. As soon as i zone an aisle some little kid comes by and fucks it up. Damn. I hate the fucking 90 day return policy it sux. And most of the LODs and TLODs are jackasses. Not all of them, but most. Target does suck.
Team member: "Jeff can I go on my break?"
Jeff: "How many red cards have you gotten today?"
Team member: "None."
Jeff: "Well didn't I give you the Mr. Potatoe Head doll?"
Team member: "Yes. But I blew it up."
Jeff: "How could you it was my love?"
Team member: "Why don't you go get it, you no side burn, unibrow, freak."
Jeff: "Hey thats not nice."
Team member: "Fuck you. COHEED RULES."

A company where the bitchy "guests" are treated like gods and the hard working "leaders" are treated like shit. (Like a religious cult. "Leaders".)
When you work at Target you must understand that breaks are 15 minutes, not 14 minutes.
Honestly, it's common sense.
You must also understand that there is NO overtime.
Target employee: Hurhurhur I'm so cool I work in the games department and get to hold the keys that unlock the Wii games!!!!
Ex Target employee: You've been brainwashed by Satan's... err I mean Target's shittiness.

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.

A simple corner store that evolved into a giant corrupt company. With thousands of stores across the USA and its low pricing and selling techniques it already runs opposing businesses to the ground but Target also manufactures its products in China using its cheap labor to gain profit and forcing other companies to be unable to compete with the low prices due to cheap labor in China. Once companies who manufacture in America cannot compete and go bankrupt becuase of Target the Target builds ontop of it therefor further monopolizing America. Ran by conservative christians who believe they are doing the right thing but when you really look at it they are using cheap labor with its cruel workplaces and terrible conditions and monopolizing America with thousands of stores running other businesses to the ground. If these are "Christian" morals and beliefs America is in deep shit.
Target holds cult-type rallies in giant stadiums full of supporters and executives who chant for Target and its owners in such ways as North Korea celebrates their brave leader Kim Jong Il.
