Target Informative - The Insider
ALL -- I have been employed by Target for many years. I loved my job in the beginning. Now I've been told I can not get weekends off ever, not even if I had family visiting for my birthday. I am afraid to even call in sick for fear of loosing my job. I have to work every holiday, when my boss can take off a day when ever they want. If I go one second over my hours I am told by my boss that if they look bad I will be punished, because Target refuses to pay for one second of time. My job sometimes needs me to stay later than required. My boss uses scare tactics to allow us to keep our jobs. I once worked with four people that left the company in less than two months due to my boss's behavior.
There are many higher level executives not following the guide lines that are set. Some executives have either been fired or quit because of there thoughts of guide lines set for lower team members due to unfair time tables or health reasons. Finally Target hires many individuals with criminal back grounds. This causes just as high of team member theft as well as shoplifter theft due to friendship of those team members.
Target is not a family store it is a higher priced Wal-Mart. Finally target does not allow many returns due to thats money out of their pocket.
