    Archived Target's Response to opening on Thanksgiving

    Retail lesson, open at 9PM, just hope that you can suck it up. If I really needed something then for sure. To be fair, Target can give their reasoning, but there are real reasons behind it. I think if it was all true they would of announced it WAY sooner bcus it shows lack of organization and a...

    Archived The Official 9PM Black Friday Rage Thread

    Agreed. I feel like Target made this decisions due to its competitors (especially Wal-Mart). Since they announced it, the decision was too late that now management has to step up to make all the schedule changes, which forces you TM's to have to work on Black Friday. I mean, what would happen...

    Archived Responding on walkie - what is your store's philosophy?

    I think it has to more with more authority, usually the GSTL starts and then if no1 responds, then the ETL's start to ask as a way of pressure (no big deal) Our store which has a pretty big volume of sales floor, hardlines, and softlines can get backup pretty easily but then the problem is u...

    Archived Why so few hours?

    Same here, i just took a official LoA but during the summer I was getting very close to 40 hours a week, and nvr went below 30 hours. If u really want more hours, either make your availability wide open or start cross-training so u can pick up more shifts, at least most of my shifts were from...

    Archived Getting items from the backroom for guests?

    Hehe. That's what I did sometimes whenever a guest would come up to me and ask "if we were out did we have anymore", my first instinct is to take the shelf label for and go to one of the stores nearest bar code scanners and check if there were any more in the stockroom. If I couldn't get a...

    Archived Question for Cart Attendants.

    Yea, this is why i believe cart attendants should get more respect, your literally busting your butt during the busiest times of days while u gotta calm your nerves down. Watching out for guests entering as well as traffic can be a pain, especially when the GSTL is yelling at you to bring more...

    Archived I have worked every weekend for 6 months straight

    It's a love hate relationship. I think ever1 including yourself should know that the weekends are BUSY as f*ck lol. I definitely feel you, except every shift I literally had to work openings including weekends during my summer period. It really has to do with the availability of yourself and...

    To my fellow TM, you didnt have to, but we were busy today and no1 else was trained to do carts, so I volunteered to skip my lunch and take it an hour and 1/2 past the usual time, and he told my GSTL that I skipped my lunch so we could catch up. Then my GSTL offered to requisition lunch for me...

    Yes, don't feel bad, like my favorite line from dumb and dumber: Lloyd: What do you think the chances are of a guy like you and a girl like me... ending up together? Mary: Well, Lloyd, that's difficult to say. I mean, we don't really... Lloyd: Hit me with it! Just give it to me straight! I came...

    Archived Question for Cart Attendants.

    Just a word of advice, dont go outside if there si lightning or if it is pouring outside. So best thing to do is have as many carts inside when this happens so u dont have to be outside. If its still busy and people are complaining about why all the carts are wet during this weather, then its...

    Yea its funny, my first encounter my guest got pretty nervous and he/she immediately said "I dont have any ID" But if you TM's don't realize why people don't want to give out their personal information, "For...

    Archived Cart Attendant Questions and a Call Off Rant

    The cart pusher is some machine :P Has any1 tried moving a car using 1? I have a funny story, one of the LoD's who is about to come into work asks me he has a car problem, and his car died where you usually come into the parking lot, so he asks me to help push his car w/ a cart pusher and...

    Archived Cart Attendant Questions and a Call Off Rant

    With the old ones, the most I've ever put on was like 70 during a closing shift (nvr in the day), but I always put around 25 now just bcus our cart pushers at our store are getting old, I don't want to risk breaking it and the more you put on, the faster you drain the poor batteries. Between...

    Archived Backroom issues

    Good, at my store it had to be one of the worst weekends, particularly bcus this was the weekend no timeoffs could be requested at my store, so we were shorthanded and all the sales floor had to backup for the most part of the day :P not to say that the backroom issues were more severe

    To that one Team Member I - ARCHIVED

    I'm not sure who makes the schedule, at my store I know its one of my GSTL's, so you should probably talk to them if you have any problems. I know a few people at my store can only and ONLY work during a set time bcus they have another job to go to afterwards, so their availability is pretty...
