I was hired a few months back at Target. I was on the Logistics team.
I turned down an interview at another company ( mistake )for Target as well.

The company looks nice,acts nice but they do not care for their workers.
They will go through people without a second thought and Hire you based on a lie.
target has a "90 day" policy that pretty much gives them the power to hire anyone,
use them and get rid of them no questions asked. You will not know until the end of your shift
and boom they get rid of you.

If your lucky you will get maybe 8 hours a week for 3+weeks training period. Pay is every 2 weeks.

But now to my story. I was hired as night shift stock. So I was pretty much there at the store
from 3am-12 or 1pm the next day. I was extremely excited and rather eager to work for Target. I showed up 15 mins early everyday. Always dressed correctly and had no problem staying after work if they needed
more help. I never called out, never missed a shift. I was a College student at the same time and did just fine. I was eager to move up to other positions as well.

If me and my partner had 3 hours to complete a section, we would get it done in half the time. While the other team members were busy talking and goofing I was working. I would rearrange and restock the shelves to get things to fit while others just left them around. if I found an error I would fix it.
I made sells during the morning and helped out greatly ( though I never went around bragging). I was the Guy who did his job no matter who was looking.

Well anyways right near the end of my 90 days after being told plenty of times how great a worker I was and so forth they just fired me. They hired seasonal workers, trained them then let me go at the end of my 90 day period. Target was behind during the back to school season, they hired me and 2 others passed their inspection,trained seasonal and then got rid of us. They never hired us saying that we were Temps.

....Continuation:

They let me go only after 3 weeks of working there....Not even a month :(
That seemed to me that they couldn't wait to get rid of me...which is so sad.

No one cares what you think, to be honest. Who are you the target police.

You shouldn't be surprised, this is a company that actually has produced multiple Anti-Union training videos (check YouTube) for new hires. Considering the past of this country any corporation that can do that with a straight face is in my humble opinion very questionable.

I was interviewed for a seasonal position about two weeks ago. The interview process was pretty standard except for this: They wanted to know every appointment, or any reason I would miss work between now and Thanksgiving weekend. Why?. I did have a few doctor's appointments scheduled, but they were all well before Thanksgiving/Black Friday. I feel this was intrusive to ask even before I was hired. I should've shut my mouth.

I am a former Target associate and was terminated for no reason. This happened a few years ago. I talked to the Hotline and was told to go ahead and apply which I did. Just to put the record straight I had experience in the department that I had applied for which was clothing.
Got a email today it said they that were unable to offer me a position at this time.

I used to work for Target, but not anymore sadly. I was only there for 6 years, started out at 20 yrs old in 2010. I was mainly on the front end, working as a cart attendant. While employed, everyone treated me very fairly, made lots of friends, had zero issues with anyone whatsoever and the LODs were awesome too. For me, Target was like my second home.

As long as they keep up their bathroom policy, I don't plan to. (BTW, that policy sure is costing them a lot and they don't seem to get it.)

You are not helpful, and have wasted everyones time with your worthless opinion. I wish i had read op's story before i made the mistake of working for target, as it is completely true. Target is a trash company that will use and abuse anyone dumb enough to take a job there.
