    Yeah, if they're asking for money, we have to ask them to move along.

    I guess it depends on the store, but at mine we can't even allow people to play or sing, even if they aren't asking for money. It causes a commotion and possibly negatively alters Target's entrance brand, or the "Way Guests Feel When They Enter The Store™."

    they should work on their exit brand more...like having 2 checkout lanes open on a busy November weekend... guests always be giving me the "hey look there's a guy who could be helping us" glare when I'm walking outside on my meal break

    Enjoy your break!

    I have an intense dislike for waiting in long lines especially if said lines are solely the result of enough fucks not being given by certain people, so in a way, I sympathize with guests who end up waiting longer at the checkout than it took them to shop (still not gonna get cashier trained ever, hahaha)

    "Payroll is tight"... no the company has $45 billion in assets, it's your own stingy ass that's tight
    "We've had a lot of cashiers quit recently"... well then hire them some help & bump them to $15/hr for retention
    "CAN I HAVE ALL AVAILABLE TEAM MEMBERS TO THE FRONT FOR A CART RALLY" ...translator's note: someone didn't schedule a cart attendant due to approaching some arbitrary payroll limit

    I'll be doing a mad dance during morning rush before my mid gets here & 2 out of 3 guests will say 'Ya'll need to hire more people!'
    My response: 'We have plenty of people. What we DON'T have is enough PAYROLL for those people.'

    Wow, my store has a CA on board almost all day. Just the first 2 hours of the day that we are CA-less.
