Description: The article is planned to focus on the topic of target employee login. The author is going to share with us about the stories and the bad experience when working at the large company which is Target and tell us the reasons for quitting the job there.
It’s a DK and I am back today with a story and a review about my experience working at Target, I’ll give you the layout here, basically I’m going to be telling you about my experience like the time frame and the time span of how long I worked there and the things to make me quit.
I think that’s going to be my thing without further ado, because I like that, we go without further ado, let’s get into the video, let’s start, I had turned 16, I need a job, because I need to start saving my money for college and also get a car for my birthday.
It was my responsibility to pay for maintenance on this car gasps, I applied at a Froyo place, I applied at a couple of other department stores that applied at Target and how Target does their hiring process.
First they call, we’re interested in having you on our team, please let us know if we can set up a phone interview, so you have a phone interview which they ask you a series of scenario type questions, such as there was a customer who was swearing, how would you deal with that?
It was fine. I ended up doing it in my car, it was awkward, because I felt like I needed to be like professional even though I could have been in pajamas and it could have been fun, but it was weird.
After the phone interview, I waited for another week and I got another call saying we’d like to do a personal interview, I came to the interview and it was basically the same thing, lots of scenario type questions, so how much can you work and see those stereotypical interview questions.
After that, I did get hired, I got trained, I felt like I wasn’t ready to be on my own, I feel like that’s every new job, this is my first job I’d ever had, I worked with all of the managers who were very nice.
I should explain this to a target, they have different levels, you are team members like store team members are the basic people who are out in the floor. I was not cashier, I was sales floor team member and then above that, it is LOD which is leader on duty, so they are like the managers.
Then on top of that, there’s store team lead which is like the person who runs and owns the store and all that in mind, at the time, we had gotten a new store team lead and I will not use names, but she was nice enough, her job was to keep the store in line.
So I wasn’t expecting her to be my best friend, I was very young for working, there weren’t a lot of people in high school that worked there, so that made it a little bit uncomfortable, there’s a lot of collagen, so I do live in a college town, so that was a little bit more expected.
But I also liked most of those leaders on duty, the yellow DS, they were all nice, my favorite was my HR, my Human Resource woman, she held that store together which is what I found out the hard way.
But let’s get into it about where I decided, things were getting rocky, so I have been working, I don’t know almost at this point and I was planning on going on a 15-day Europe trip and it was fun, I was excited, you have to take off to do that thing.
With our taking off system, if it is more than ten days, you need off, you have to take a leave of absence, so I applied to take my leave of absence, I did these months before I even left, this is perfect, your spot will be here ready for you.
When you come back, we’ll have everything set up, it’ll be great and at the time, my Human Resource woman was pregnant and she did not have a baby before I left, so she was on maternity leave, so I go to Europe at the time of my life, I come back and the people who have taken over her job don’t have me in the system.
I’m not on the schedule for the day, I would be able to work and the woman says it’s fine, it’s fun, you can pick up shifts like we had a Facebook group, you could pick up shifts and she picks some up, it’ll be fun until we get you in the system which she said could take two weeks.
So it can be two weeks, that’s fine, I still need to make money, because I don’t have any, because I spent it all on my vacation, end up picking up a shift and finding out that since I’m not in the system.
My identification number doesn’t let me log into any of the registers or the Y devices which are iPods that they use to find locations of different items and things like that, so I couldn’t do anything at work.
Besides, like great people or like organize things, but if someone were to come up to me and asked me where something would be, I was basically going off what I had remembered in my head which made it difficult.
I ended up telling her I don’t know what you expect me to do, if I’m not in the system, I can’t do anything, you don’t have to wait for two weeks, so two weeks go by and I’m still in the schedule, I’m on schedule, so I have my own separate sheet in the back of the schedule book.
I’m working, fitting room shift switch fitting room shifts aren’t that bad and they’re not eight hours every day, they have split up the fitting room shifts between a morning eight-hour shift in an afternoon eight out shift.
That morning 8-hour shift was not usually me, I usually had the afternoon one like evening one and those people would call in all the time, I don’t know who else did that, there are only about five of us.
I think that were even trained to work in the fitting room, but I do remember a couple of people calling in all the time, what that means is that the fitting room was a disaster by the time I get in there for the evening shift, it was very irritating and being back in the fitting room by yourself can get old and fast.
Especially when you’re working eight hours by yourself, hanging, folding, hanging, folding, picking up the fitting rooms, reporting tags, missing, I had gone to the person who was doing the scheduling and said he couldn’t work all these fitting room shifts.
I need something else, I need a hard line which was the floor, that wasn’t clothing or baby stuff and soft lines was the baby stuff and like children’s clothes, men’s clothes, other parts of the store that were considered clothing, but not the fitting room.
She said she understood I would totally do that for you, I got one hard line stripped, that was four hours and that the second half of my eight-hour shift was working in the fitting room, so I worked the first four hours on hard lines, the second four hours in the fitting room.
Keep in mind I said I didn’t want to work in the fitting room, so it was very irritating and very difficult to deal with that kind of thing and it was very mentally exhausting, trying to deal with that I was working at least over 30 hours a week which I don’t even know.
If that’s legal and I was part-time and under 18, I’m sure I can’t work more than 30 hours, but it’s very irritating and hard to handle, my HR wasn’t there, so I couldn’t go to her to get help on scheduling or things like that.
So what I ended up doing was that I was having a breakdown at work and my boyfriend max the times, tell my boyfriend, but he came and he brought me dinner, because I was working the evening shift in the fitting room all the time.
I was crying to him about how I wanted to get up and walk out. I wanted to leave, I hate it here, I’m going to lose my mind, I can’t work this much like I have so many other things to do, because that was currently in sports at the time as well.
I was so overwhelmed and he’s like Mercedes, this isn’t healthy for you, you need to find a balance and they’re not giving you that night, after my shift was over, I ended up taking my requests two weeks and I filled out that was the last day I could work and I never stepped into that target for months after that.
Because I figured everyone would hate me, but the saddest part I found was that at my new job that I had gotten after that, my HR came in, she was shopping and she goes Mercy’s, why are you working here now.
I told her everything, I said about all the awful experiences I had, she said that she had talked to the store team lead at this target, she said that there was a bunch of people leaving that they were not happy with what was happenin.
My HR was coming back to a disaster, your job will always be there for you if you want to come back, but I never did, but it makes it sad, because I did enjoy working, it was a great work environment, they treat you awesome, I work Black Friday and they bring in food that entire weekend for people they bring in like toppers, pizza and feed you the whole time which is nice.
They bring in treats randomly like that, it’s a very good liquid starter job, I think Target is a great company, I think that maybe my store experience wasn’t the best as some people have, I’m not saying targets a bad company or anything like that, I think Target is great, I think they have the best thing in mind for all of their employees.
I wonder how some of the things were handled at my store when I worked there, hope you enjoyed this video, it’s a little different case, if you like this video, please give it a thumbs up, let me know in the comments about what your jobs have ever been.
If you’ve ever had a bad experience working at a large company, such as Target, I’d love to hear about it, I find these kind of things very interesting, because nobody likes to think about retail work even though lots of people work in a retail, thank you so much for your attention.
