    Target being looted live on TV

    I wrote a long thing but deleted it. This thread isn’t good for my mental health so I’m going to wish you all the best. I hope you are healthy and staying safe.

    Guest Services Can I speak to a manager?: A front end thread

    I’m sorry. Do you have any vacation time or sick days you can take just to get away for awhile? It’s easy for me say but try not to be hard on yourself. It’s a very stressful time to be working in retail, especially Target because we never closed. Are you able to delegate some things to other...

    Target being looted live on TV

    Yeah, let’s find another video of a black person being murdered so we don’t have to hear about the pandemic. 🙄

    Target being looted live on TV

    It doesn’t sell news to see people running out of Target with baby clothes and formula. It’s much better to show the black dudes with 60” TVs on their backs. It does play into the stereotypes but that’s what our society has deemed news unfortunately. I’ve heard more about the looting of Target...

    Target being looted live on TV

    Yes, tell people the “correct” way to protest. Is it marching in the street shouting the names of black men and women who were murdered by police? Or is it taking over a government building while armed to the teeth with assault rifles while screaming in cops faces? If you were with the former...

    Guest Services Told to do another job because I voiced a safety concern

    Are you seriously comparing getting the wrong jimmies on your ice cream versus the potential of catching COVID-19?

    Guest Services Told to do another job because I voiced a safety concern

    @Tangled are all 8 of the registers open at your SCO? Are they always all open or only during busy high traffic times in order to get the guests out of the store quicker? I ask because at my store we only have 4 registers open at SCO at any one time so there is enough space for social...

    Guest Services Squaretrade being pushed on furniture, toothbrush heads, and other silly items

    So it covers wear and tear and general malfunction but not anything intentional.

    Guest Services Squaretrade being pushed on furniture, toothbrush heads, and other silly items

    I wish, though, it was clear what it covered. Because when the guest asks and the screen says electrical, I don’t always have the brain power to spin it into something that makes sense. I could look it up. I’m just being cranky and lazy.

    Guest Services Squaretrade being pushed on furniture, toothbrush heads, and other silly items

    This happened to me last weekend. The lady asked what it covered and when I looked I saw that it covered electrical elements or something. I told her that it covered the wiring in her rug. She thought about it for a second and said no. This is how I amuse myself at Target these days.

    Guest Services Can I speak to a manager?: A front end thread

    We printed the barcode on stickers and stuck them to the gs registers. Probably not brand but none of the TLs knew what to do. Edited to add that we got the barcode from the grey ones and printed that out.

    COVID-19 Masks and gloves

    Just to clarify, I’m not talking about nursing homes or residential centers. In my city, we have a senior center, that is currently closed, but the administration is collecting masks for senior citizens and anyone else who is not able to buy one, make one, or just needs one. The center operates...

    I'm Lost! Drive ups

    My ETL told me we need to improve our drive up time because it’s consistently between 2:30 and 3 minutes. I’ve searched the forum and it seems like the process most use is to have a dedicated “runner” and a dedicated “picker” (assuming you have at least 3 people scheduled at gs)*. Team members...

    Cart attendant shout out

    Thank you to all of the cart attendants! You do a job most of us couldn’t or wouldn’t do. Whether it’s cleaning god knows what in the bathrooms or gathering carts in rain, snow, and unbearable heat, or carrying out a 70” tv to find the “guest” brought their Prius, the cart attendants do it all...

    COVID-19 Masks and gloves

    At least in my area, they are not open, same with the library, but they are distributing masks. But real funny joke.

    COVID-19 Masks and gloves

    For masks, please check with your local library, Senior center, and/or your local government. If officials are going to require masks, they need to be provided. They don’t have to be the disposable ones as plenty of people are making masks.

    COVID-19 Tips for handling rude guests? (Esp. in softlines)

    Try to remember that some days you will be able to handle the rude guests better than others and that’s okay. Talk to your TL or team members if you have a difficult interaction so you can take 5 minutes or so to walk away or maybe do something else where you’re not interacting with guests. I...

    Guest Services Can I speak to a manager?: A front end thread

    We don’t have these but I kind of wish we did. 😂 More than once I’ve been tempted to wear a vendor name tag to see if anyone would notice my name is Frito-Lay.

    Cleaner

    I would love to have a dedicated cleaner but that’s not going to happen at my store. I wish it would because the registers and self checkout were so gross. As others have said, the cleaner at my store is usually pulled to back up the register or do fulfillment so cleaning doesn’t get done...
