    New to Target and what to expect.

    The DC can be brutal. Plenty of OT. Say goodbye to your free time for a while. Hot in the summer, freezing in the winter. But the money and benefits are great. Work hard, show up, be safe, and you'll do just fine. Welcome aboard :)

    New to Target and what to expect.

    Big facts. Lol. Only been in OB 9 months and gave up trying to learn new hire names until after they shed the orange vest.

    8th Tier

    You're pretty high up there. Forgot my tape measure the last time I got an aisle with an 8th tier 😉 But as Frank said, you'll get used to it. As long as you keep an eye out for unsafe pallet placement and report them, always wear your safety harness, and are aware of your foot placement, you'll...

    Masks and overheating

    The masks are a no-go for me. Worked an OT shift with an underarmor mask I bought today and the heavy freight had me pulling it below my nose. Will probably still use it running errands (it's very cute, how could I not? 😉). I think I'll invest in a face shield for work though. Hoping that helps...

    Masks and overheating

    Hi all, Yesterday I was in depal and was throwing pallet after pallet of detergent and water. Yikes. My partner pulled his mask down under his chin. I did the same, and eventually felt so hot I took mine off. We were working very hard and the masks were becoming problematic, but we were...

    Distribution Center Orientation

    As a fellow outbounder who's trained on multiple PIT, you won't get drug tested unless you cause a certain amount of damage. Best way to avoid this is just don't do drugs 😏 Target policy. But, I will say they'd lose most of their employees if they drug tested the way some other companies do...

    Distribution Center Orientation

    Indeed. As long as they have able bodies, they don't care who comes in.

    Distribution Center Orientation

    I've been noticing the same thing. Maybe not merely 4 people, but there are multiple people on weekend shift that I have never seen work a single day of OT on my key. I know one who gives his shift to a girl who wants the hours. The other ones though? No clue.. Everyone just seems to call out...

    Emergency Time Off

    I'm confused about this as well. I have 4 hours emergency time yet I've never taken a Covid leave. Shouldn't I have more? Or is this different?..

    Cross-training

    They threw me in depal for the first time tonight. Really thankful for my decision to chug an energy drink at first break 😂 OB has my heart tbh, bunch of hardworking, sweaty hooligans.

    Bullseye Shop

    I got the northface fleece today. I'm a size 4 and the small fit perfectly. I think anyone who wears a size 6 could very comfortably wear it as well :) I'm just over 5'7 and the sleeves were the perfect size. The length was great too. Very high quality product, which I expected due to the price...

    Cross-training

    Hi, all! I'm Outbound and consistently exceed productivity. Learned 2 of the PIT so far and 3 different roles in OB. I like to think that although I'm replaceable, I do add value to my team. That being said, I was voluntold to cross-train in Warehouse. Learned CF, and just learned another new...

    Bullseye Shop

    Oh no! I ordered a size small for both items. The tee should be fine, but worried about that fleece now..

    Bullseye Shop

    Hi all! I ordered some goodies from the bullseye shop. Simping for some of this gear. Was wondering what you guys have ordered, and if the quality of your purchase was good? Apparel or otherwise, I'd love to hear about it. I ordered the unisex tee and women's north face fleece. I'll share a...

    Distribution Center Orientation

    At my DC, 4 weeks in and OT is mandatory. Currently, 100% means nothing. Orange vests are fair game.

    $500 bonus

    We've been through a lot. Covid diagnoses and scares, endless OT, and price gouging on essential products. Target employees will be receiving a $500 bonus. Thoughts?

    New Year's Eve at Target?

    I'll add that I have always requested New Years off for spiritual purposes (mushrooms, anyone?). So this'll be.. different. Will probably scurry off to meditate in the bathroom at 11:58am, minding my scan gaps of course 😉 The last place I ever want to be meditating is in the crapper, but it'll...

    New Year's Eve at Target?

    I'm outbound. Working 4pm-4am New Years Eve into New Year's day. Then another 12'er. Then weekend OT. Unfortunately for some of us, the new year will be spent in the warehouse. At least we'll be making time and a half on New Year's, so there's that. Try to make the best of it. Xo

    Dear D.c

    Dear D.C., You're doing a great job despite the 60 hour work weeks and high productivity expectations. Sleep well knowing you've thrown plenty of Kleenex for those crying at the stores. xo
