Target Corporation Complaint - Easton Shopping Center in Columbus Ohio
I used to work for Target for over eight years until I was terminated. I had blew the whistle on co-workers smoking in the employee restrooms which are a violation of the Ohio state laws, smoking in a public place.
I had been a target by bullies that constantly talked trash because of the incident.
A co-worker employee and supervisor named Millissa had always passed negative remarks about me to the new arriving co-working supervisors.
These statements were for example,"He's not a team player," and other negative remarks. I ended up becoming one of the most hated employees in the Target 1072 store location.
I was told off by a co-worker and he had lied and had said that I had pushed him, because I had whistle blown the smoking incident.
This individual should have been fired for arguing at me but management did not terminate him. I was given a final write up and was told that I was a lyer by the supervisor who's name was millissa.
A whole year had gone by and I was constantly harasshed by co-workers.
I was also asked to get in the trailer all the time by Millissa who apparently had a problem with me. I had to get a doctors excuse to prevent from getting in the trailer all the time.
When I had complained to the human relations supervisor and the other supervisors about the harasshments, the other co-workers would lie.
I was eventually fired because of a punk who's name was Vincent, he was going around the store spreading rumors that I was gay. I had gotten tired of taking peoples mess at that store and had said to Vincent,"I'm not scared of you."
Vincent had an audience and he had shown off. A co-worker, whose name is improperly spelled named Drea had gone to get help but no one had came. Vincent had made remaks like,"Did you forget to take your medication," "You need to take the blank out of you but" and so fourth.
I was fired two days later becuse of the incompentant supervisors and these supervisors using their own person opinion in these matters. So I was fired for arguing with another co-worker, that management had allowed to act inapporpirate for such a long time.
But Joe did not get fired when he had gotten in my face and had made comments around an audience.
This target 1072 store also shows favortism towards the hours un fairly and had hired family such as husband, wife, and personal friends on the job. Most of the hirings are of people that work at the store knows.
Broken merchandise stays on the shelves all the time un noticed, because workers are too lasy to take the items down.
I had worked at the Lennox Shopping Center Target for six years un harasshed, had made employee of the month, but a troble maker at Easton shopping center Target Store. I was a hard worker but made out to be a trouble maker by people of authority that did not like me.
I had even made a complaint to the Ohio Civil Right Commission that had made matter worser. Team leader Kim is another co-worker that tried to make matters difficult to get rid of me. Kim had very poor management skills and is another source of my termination.
Because of these incidents, I would never shop at Target again.
