Every day I watch the LOD's stand around in a group, laughing and looking at their phones while my coworkers and I are running around sweating, waving our arms to get their attention because we need help or need change for the register. And they get paid more. But then they yell at us for having a cup of water out in a visible spot. There is a very clear hierarchy that is not at all necessary, so when people use their position of power against you but then mess around when they're making triple what I make, it's really frustrating.

Well their should be respect in all work place , I feel we all are human we gonna make mistake , you learn from your mistake bounce right back up . if you don't know Something not sure go yr Mgr ask questions . if that the right way , also have some shift huddle meeting with yr employer in a daily basic , recognize. Yr employer say hey you did a good job today or thank you for coming for short notice , or thank you for staying late . when their call out value yr employer.

I would suggest stepping in and actually doing work. We will respect you so much more if you actually stepped in for back up calls or reshop calls or we saw you guys help us zone or push. Also treat us like real people who are competent and able. You guys are in a lead position so lead by example and try your hand at some of the tasks you all ask us to do. Also get to know your employees and be genuine about. Acting like we’re more than just target employees will allow for such a better working environment and higher productivity. People leave bc they feel disrespected, unappreciated, unwanted and disposible. It’s bad enough the customers are rude the last thing we need are lod’s who are worse.

Actually genuinely ask us if we are doing okay on our workload. Get to know us on a personal level instead of work related. Appreciate the hard workers and don’t take them for granted.

This company NEEDS a change from the top down, You keep putting down your TM to motivate them to work harder but it has a opposite effect on me! I would never shop at trarget again now knowing how the TM are treated and had experience it myself.

Cut up and down with the vein, don't cut like in the movies or you won't be doing it right. Try not to make a mess either make sure it's confined to the hr department.

Actually train your employees. Most people are just thrown toward the wolves instead of actually being trained. And stop babysitting employees. Often times, management has to know what their employees are doing every second of the day and its a little insulting.

Actually listen to your employees. There are some suggestions that are worth listening to, sure we can be replaceable, but doesn't it say something if you constantly are on the look for new cashiers/sales associates? We're human too.
