    Bye

    If you took your 15 in the last hour of your shift then they are absolutely going to find any excuse to write you up. Don't do it. It isn't 15 minutes of "free" time for you to use as you wish, it is a designated resting period meant to help you recuperate in order to work better afterwards...

    What has Target taught you?

    That I look damn good in red.

    I'm sorry to hear that. Some days they really just pull everything out of you and your stuck trying to figure out how to get the energy to finish the last couple of hours. If it makes you feel better, on those days everyone is feeling the pressure. On days like those you will find me flipping...

    Oh God please never make the mistake of getting involved with a female at Targét. So many sexual harassment based firings and lawsuits ongoing at my DC.

    Dress code

    That was a mistake on my part, it is eyes nose and mouth. Nothing about ears. They just want to be able to see who they are looking at one camera. Definetly for the stealing part but i also wouldn't be surprised if they weren't nervous about potentially violent people trying to sneak in due to...

    Dress code

    That particular one won't come into effect until after Covid. Note that once it does, wearing respiratory masks is a no as well. I have begun the formal process of complaining that I need to be allowed to wear something to prevent getting silicosis when sweeping the inch thick dust that...

    Dress code

    Across the network. Also no more face coverings. No gaiters, ski masks, and burkas can't cover face. Eyes nose and mouth must be exposed. AP probably got sick of not being able to identify people. Also, all hair lower than shoulder length must be tied. Doesnt have to be up in a bun, but at the...

    That was a proper safe thing he instructed you to do :p honestly as long as you aren't under 5'5 you shouldn't have any trouble stacking to the top of the trailer while on the stepstool. One of the biggest keys to getting to the next level is learning to scan your lane and see where a pocket of...

    Congrats on getting a day shift. If you dont miss your weekends too much, only working 3 days a week is a dream. I give you the same advice I gave Sunnyshine but I also give you both the advice: don't chase yellows! It doesn't matter how good you are, some days they are unavoidable. The...

    Good luck! As long as you have the right mentality and a little physical strength its pretty easy work. Yeah some days suck but find me a job where that isn't the case. Best tip I can give a new guy: build smaller walls. Too many guys start out building walls that are double if not triple the...

    Welcome to OB! Its the hottest area in the building. Also gets to be the coldest if you live in an area with a proper winter. Your first week will be very easy and pleasant. Its the second week when the real test begins. Which key are you on?

    Waiving attendance policy still a thing? Not sure if i should call in

    You've never worked at the DC! Haha. Im telling you, they are going hard. You call out twice and you automatically receive an email telling you if you do not return you forfeit your job. No I am not joking. Yes from a practical perspective "obviously go to the doctor". But financial issues...

    Waiving attendance policy still a thing? Not sure if i should call in

    My DC is hiring 300 people in the next two months or so. So yes it is very different 😅 they are angle shooting every single thing they can't to prevent people from getting off without repercussion for calling out at this point. We are weeks behind where we should be. The guidance in fact has...

    OB may be difficult work with occasionally impossible demands but it has a giant appeal, freedom. No other department allows you such autonomy in how you operate provided you are keeping your lanes off yellow.

    Thinking about applying for packer

    Unless you are a RDC equipped with Miniload in which case it is MLP instead!

    Waiving attendance policy still a thing? Not sure if i should call in

    Calling in sick IS accountable time now. You must call in THREE days minimum, and you MUST go to a doctor and get checked out (they have paperwork for you to fill out) for it to be waived. You can also just get tested for Covid and skip the doctor part. If you really are feeling sick then...

    Job change senority/mass vacation

    It used to be within company. Just recently they changed it (within this year recent) that transfering, at least from store to DC, you no longer keep any seniority. For that exact reason too. I cant tell you how pissed off some of the guys who had been at the DC for a year or two were when they...

    Dear D.c

    Lots of stuff going on in this thread. All of it I completely sympathize with as a store team member who made the transition to DC to get answers for myself. The very basic answer I can give you is that 80% of those problems would go away if an entire trailer was loaded by a compitent person...

    COVID-19 Anyone else have confirmed Covid-19 cases in the warehouse?

    It's a trick. It basically always takes 5 days to get the test results back. You figure someone gets out of work on a friday, feels ills and gets tested Saturday, takes 3 days to get the test result back, and then they announce the confirmed case the next day. Bam 5 days. It doesnt mean anything...

    Safety school

    I thought it was a good effort on Targets part. It's useful to teach the absolute basics like how to use a pallet jack for people that have never used one at all. On that note the name is misleading. Its really more like a crash course on using the absolute basics.
