Really depends on your store, unfortunately, as they're allowed to set their own rules.Quick question - have caught the Death Flu and had to call out on Friday. Still can't eat or function as of tonight and will have to call out for tomorrow's shift as well. In prior jobs, a "continued absence" like that counted as one incident - is that how it counts at Target, too, or am I basically getting one strike for every shift I call in? Thanks!
I mean they can’t force someone to come in?I was on self-checkout the other day and the opening human resources team member let the softlines lead know of at least three callouts for that day by walkie. The softlines lead was predictably aggravated and let the human resources team member know that she didn't want any more callouts for the rest of the day. Is Target allowed to deny any callouts like in the above situation?
They don't expect you to throw your lettuce and carrots out onto the steps as distraction and then avoid the stairs by jumping over the railing and getting in the car on the passenger side?In Alaska we have one rather unique reason for calling in late that will actually fly with the boss.
That's true, but I've heard from posters here that team members who call out frequently receive fewer hours in future schedules. I can only speak for the front end at my store, but it seems like there is a call-out at least half the days that I am working and it really puts a strain on the team members who very rarely call-out. There is one specific front end team member at my store who calls out at least once a month and she is often scheduled to close, and it really puts the front end in a tough spot when she calls out because there are only 1 or 2 closing cashiers on a given night. On the other hand, Target doesn't want to schedule team members close to 40 hours for fear that they will hit overtime, so they have to try to evenly distribute the allocated hours, even to team members who call out. It's an unfortunate situation and I know my store isn't the only one dealing with this situation.I mean they can’t force someone to come in?
If your state offers sick time, I'd do it right awayI've never called in sick before but had to under doctor's orders the other day. How do get my sick time to be paid out to me for that day? Is there a certain number of days I have to submit the request? It was yesterday (the last day of the last work week.)
Go on ehr & submit request under my time. There should be a form you need to fill out too, I think.I've never called in sick before but had to under doctor's orders the other day.

Someone is drinking tainted koolaid....It really sucks that the people who call out on a limb or for literally anything ruin it for the ones who do show up, come to work, work hard, and have good reasons to call out. There's this cart attendant at my store and ever since he got hired last seasonal time, he's called out or NCNS'd so many times, but he's still not fired.
Then, there's me, I get a stomach bug monday night into tuesday and I call in and my team leader wants to write me up lol... AND THEN SHE GETS SICK WITH IT TWO DAYS LATER AND STAYS OUT FOR TWO DAYS ON A WEEKEND. I also heard she's writing up another TM in the Meat department for getting his shift covered by a TM that only works 15-20 hours a week. That sounds like bullshit so I don't know if it's true but if it is... that's bullshit lol.
when I called out the two weeks ago it was my first time since December when I tore both calves in my leg and couldn't stand or walk, and then before December I have no idea how long it was but it was at least another two-three months.Someone is drinking tainted koolaid....
I can tell you with the new modernization role out and with $15 by 2020 we have been told to start coaching more often. If you never call out, that's crap to be written up for.
