I'm two weeks away from freedom, and it feels a little weird


Ex-Backroom Badass
Dec 27, 2014
Finally decided to put in my two weeks. My store's treatment of the backroom just gets worse and worse, and I finally decided enough was enough. Not a shift goes by where I don't feel like shit by the end of it, so it's simply not worth it to keep going through that hell.

Fortunately I have another part time job I'm working, which has the chance of becoming full time, and I actually enjoy it. So hopefully things won't go that badly.

My ETL-HR tried so hard to convince me to stay. I know I do the store good, but they don't do me good, and that's what's important.


That's what I've been trying the last few weeks, but I simply can't handle working at Target anymore. I'd rather take the cut in hours than work at my store any longer
That's how I felt before I left back in November. When you dread going into work, it's time to leave.

Good luck to you!

You made the right choice. I've been away from Target for a few months now and I'm kicking myself for not leaving sooner. My ETL barely said 4 words to me in my final two weeks because she was so bitter I was leaving. One thing is for sure, if you worked backroom and were able to keep up during your shifts while working with lazy co-workers you have a very strong work ethic that will serve you well at your next job.


I am a Guest once again!
