I just got a text from a co worker who is at work now. She told me other Targets in our area, DC metro area, are closing or closed. But our store isnt closed yet. We are due for aftershocks.

What is target's policy on earthquakes and evacuating buildings in emergencies?

Ours is open. Call your store first and/or call 800-888-0333, then enter your store number for your store status. That number is available 7/24.

Store closed and employees evacuated just for a 5.8 quake? Was there too much stuff on the floor or something?

I am sure everyone has heard the joke about the earthquake was caused by our founding fathers rolling over in their graves.

Here is the the Target version:

The earthquake was caused by the combined effect of all the Virginia Target Team Members dropping their jaws when they were told that their stores were not hiring seasonal TMs this year, and hours were going to be cut even further for this upcoming Holiday season.

I am kind of concerned about this being close to the truth

Wow, don't know what is more shocking. The earthquake or the news of seasonal hires. They have been eluding to it though.

Still hope that everyone and their families are o.k. It's hard to prepare for a disaster but even worse when you can't predict it. Take care of yourselves.

Try not to panic GreatTeam.

The ideal has always been to hire team members who were good enough to be "keepers". That's the problem with getting too little info out of corporate. And that is why we come here. We give each other encouragement. Besides, I have enough on my plate without adding fourth quarter hiring into the mix.
