Not necessarily true. It depends on how the Master Agreement (read: contract) between BUE (employees) and management is written. Also remember that it is up to the membership to approve any agreement. Don't like seniority written into it? Don't ratify it. Not all union rules depend on seniority.A union rep would not help. You can fire someone in a union for failure to perform or insubordination just as easy. Only difference is that because wages are in the contract you no longer get merit raises and you have to promote the person who applies that has been there the longest. (Which, by the way, usually means you are promoting the least qualified.)
I have been called quite a few things in my life. This is a new one! It happened, I stand by it. I quit because of it. It was said in a TL meeting. Later that same week in an impromptu TL huddle on the sales floor, we were also offered a $25 gift card for the first TL to get a hot line call for pushing their team too hard. That situation was addressed by the DTL when she found out.I still stop by here from time to time to see whats going on. Although my 401K is safely invested elsewhere, my pension is still at Target so I still have an interest in what is going on.That is something that doesn't come out of managers mouth even in jest..
And we have a troll in the thread just ignore his ass..
I'm older and valued. I get my fair share of red cards, though...and can lift and do drive up. Flexibility really matters! I hope I don't overstay. I would hate to be a drag on team. I figure my body will let me know! Lol
Yep. There's much to be gained for feeling one did their job well. Once that feeling goes, forget about it.In every job you should make sure you are never a bottom performer. Make sure you are more positive, energetic, and a harder worker than at least 20 percent of your peers.
I think maybe if the older people stopped using Ben-gay. Or maybe used an unscented version. They wouldn’t have all these problems.
My store, we are a threat to the very young and stupid management cause we can talk back and explain why their choices are wrong they don't like that. We don't blindly follow their idiotic choices. Thus we have to go.
I've applied to Walmart and am considering going there and leaving Target. While pay is a dollar less ($11 instead of $12), I would always have at least 24-32 hours per week instead of the consistent 12 that Target has been giving me. Walmart is also offering full time if we are looking for more than 24 hours.They didn't NEED such representation before. Target was never crappy as a Walmart with phony benefits, etc. At least Wally world doesn't snarf people's hours out to newbies and tell their long term people there's no budget for hours.
Agree. IMO it's rather hard to focus on being best one can be for Target when focus is on trying to make ends meet on bills and being able to pay them.It's kind of hard to enjoy benefits when you aren't getting enough hours to be able to afford to use them. Dental is good and all but I literally can't afford to use it.
