Management is lazy, including my store manager. Most of them sit in their office for the entire shift. They pick favorites, and if you arent a favorite they will watch over you like a hawk waiting to pick at any little thing they noticed you did wrong. HR turns a blind eye as well, so it was difficult for me to feel any sense of belonging as a team member. Since my issue was with the store manager, I couldn’t really make a complaint fearing she would be even harder on me. Additionally, especially with COVID, they give you an insane amount of workload to complete in a short shift. If you fail to complete it, they get upset with you even after you explain why you weren’t able to complete everything. I have asked my department lead to help, and she has told me no to my face on multiple occasions after I witnessed her on all of them gossiping with the HR team lead in her office. The lack of motivation from my superiors did not make me want to help them, and when I initially started and did great they took advantage of me. Overall, I left target because of the unprofessional attitudes I saw in my superiors.
So I'm actually going to be a new closing TL at Target after almost half a decade at Wal-Mart. I got a phone call 4 days after applying to set up a phone interview, did the phone interview 2 days after that, which lasted for about a minute. I was told on the phone that I would be interviewing with an ETL by beginning of next week. Due to current work conflicts, I actually interviewed with the SD in the time frame and asked general questions about my capabilities in retail and was offered a job on the spot.
These complaints definitely sound like they are coming from the Sherman Tx store. Sounds like managers need to be fired. That store cannot keep people there , because of poor management.
I was hired to work around 25 hours a week. My first 10 weeks the average was 34. Then a sudden drop to 18, slowly building back to 34. I have open availability and bounced back a lot faster than employees that do not. I expect January and February to be dismal. Overall I will probably average the 25 I was hired for.
Reading other answers here is surprising me. I love our store, managers and coworkers. There is a lot to do, but expectations are realistic. It's retail... they need us on those days other people have off. However, at our store they attempt to be fair and spread the holiday burden around. I like going in every day.
