Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
Home scale purchased two days ago on debt card. Tried to return, with receipt, and they offered me store credit. I demanded cash because after this experience I would never shop there again. Christian Owen, ETL-Guest experience kicked me out of the store for demanding my money back. I have since contacted Target as well as the BBB and awaiting results. BEWARE OF TARGET....

Target Corporation - Minnesota, Minneapolis - Illegal Refund Practices

Target will not credit me in the same form of payment originally used for purchase on a split tender receipt.

For my original purchase of $115, I paid $78 using a gift card, and $37 using my Visa. When I tried to return $35 worth of merchandise, Target would only offer me a refund on my gift card and would not credit my Visa. Because the original receipt shows the amount charged to my Visa was $37, my Visa should be credited up to $37 for any items returned from said purchase. Target does not have the right to dictate the allocation of my refund to their own benefit. As a consumer,...

To: Mr. Gregg Steinhafel
Target Corporate Office | Headquarters
1000 Nicollet Mall
Minneapolis, MN 55403

Greetings Mr. Steinhafel,

My name is Scooter and I frequently shop your Target stores throughout the year as it very convenient to my home and work. I’m employed in a large box retail store and understand how employees and policies exemplify customer service. I also understand how frustrating returns and exchanges are and can be. However, that last few times I’ve shopped your store I was highly disappointed and unsure if I will ever...

Target Corporation - Alabama, Birmingham - Protection Plan-Scam

As a longtime shopper of Walmart, I began shopping at Target only within the last year, not only because the are located directly across the street from my employer, but mainly because they finally started price matching competitor's ads. Last December, I purchased an IPod Touch for my 17 year olds birthday. The salesperson asked if I needed the Proctection Plan "in case anything happens to it". I normally don't purchase the additional warranty because my kids either lose or have forgotten about whatever it is, long before it gets broken. But this time I bought it "just in case." Well,...

Target Corporation - Target makes $$ on the refund

You don't find the refund policy on your Target receipt and do you know why ? This is because Target does not want you to know (and even on their website they don't spell it out in full). If you shop at any reputable store, you can get the store credit for the price you paid. This is not the case when it comes to Target. I paid $55 for several products which I brought back for the exchange 120 days instead of 90. They did not mention a word that I was loosing $$ when they processed the transaction. I got back below $44 on it as the credit. I had the receipt showing the amount of purchase...

Target Corporation - North Carolina, Jacksonville - Debit Card Scam

Complaint Rating:  84 % with 56 votes
I have shopped for years at this Target store as it is one of the limited choices we have in Jacksonville, NC. I have experienced bad service and attitude from a lot of the employees and overcharges at the register but this last experience really takes the cake. I had recently received a letter from Target stating that my Target card qualified me for 5% discount on all purchases made with my card. However when I went to use the card it was now closed due to inactivity. I decided to go ahead and get another card and went with the Target Red Debit card since I usually like to use cash. The cashier...

Target Corporation - Virginia - Job Giveaway

Complaint Rating:  33 % with 3 votes
I have worked for Target for 2 1/2 years. About a year ago, my mom passed away. I had to immediately leave for her funeral. While I was gone Target gave away my job and reasonable accommodation! When I came back I had nothing. They just wanted me to go home and I said no. I will not leave this store until you get me a job and get it now!! However, the job they got me was not in line with my reasonable accommodation. They, Target, claim that it is/was. I know it is not. I am standing 70% of the time and my restriction is much lower than that. Target accepted this restriction when I was hired and...

Target Corporation - Ad fraud

Target.com advertised small computer for $199 online and said only available in stores. Website then directed me to the nearest store that had merchandise in stock. Went to store and was told they had none and did not have any at all that day. They then refused rain check and refused to let me know if and when more stock would arrive and told me that Target.com and Target stores had no connection to each other. The website purposely sends you to a store to buy something that they never had to begin with and then refuses to accept any responsibility. I took this complaint up with every person in...

Target Corporation - California - Bad Management Practices

Posted:    Quiet Employee Suing for Peace
Complaint Rating:  57 % with 7 votes
Target has no official policy in place when it comes to the basics of good human decency and decorum between employees -- or if so, local management does not deem it important enough to be "trained " on -- of course, we are being trained on those things that effect the bottom line.

Surprisingly (or not so) and recently, a visit by upper management is a more cooled down and sophisticated approach to the treatment: a fishing expedition. It is surprising that no one knows what goes on with all the cameras that surely have some auditory functioning to them, that the company could put...

I worked for target, for almost a year, after getting my first raise, a horrid 19 cents from working hard getting over 5 times as many ESP and Red Cards as anyone else in the store, Working in every section of the store minus Human Resources...

Not only were my scheduled hours ofton tampered with to suit our electronic's team specialists prefered hours *the two specialists were dating/messing around with each other*, but ofton times I would see...

Target Corporation - Hostile work environment

Where can I file a complaint I indicated to store managers about various issues, and nothing was done. Due to the hostile work environment I was in, I ended up resigning.

I want to send a detailed letter to Target indicating all the issues that were overlooked.

I can go into details, but will, only when someone requests information.

Any information would be appreciated.

My spouse also is in management at Target. Therefore, I couldn't go to HR or ethics due to the fact it would jeopardize her position.

Please help......

Target Corporation - New Jersey - False Advertising

The two day sale flyer for the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving 2008 advertised a 2 gig thumb drive. It clearly says the price is $8.88 and includes 40 free prints. The website said the same. I went to the store and the package has the same information. It was a special deal between Target and Kodak and has the information printed inside the plastic package. "40 free prints. Who doesn't love free? 40 prints for you, from Target." You can't get much clearer than that! It also said "See coupon inside for offer" but you can't get to that unless you cut open the plastic package....

Target Corporation - Michigan - Wine Cooler Fiasco

My husband & I tried to purchase a 12 bottle wine cooler today from Target. In our Sunday paper, the Target ad had a great price on a 12 bottle wine cooler. We went to the Target in our town and realized when we got home, the cooler was scratched and dented. My husband returned it and than drove to a Target in a nearby town (20 minutes car ride) and brought home wine cooler #2. It turned out this one had a huge dent in it. The box was perfect so my husband did not check the appliance before leaving the store. Our mistake!! He drove back to the second store and talked with the store manager who was...

Target Corporation - Missouri - Lack of Human Resources Training

I grew up in Minnesota where Target Corporation was a big deal. Their stores were clean, employees had a dress and conduct code. Yah their prices were higher than Walmart but you have less hassle of being mobbed and better quality.

My husband works for Target. He is very dedicated and works very hard even when he is pain from some of the work he has done. He has been through 4 managers and several district managers in 4 years. In his region, he has been there the longest. He volunteered to work overnights and even miss my birthday one year.

Okay...here is my problem....

Target Corporation - Minnesota, Minneapolis - Horrible customer service

I bought a Christmas present at target which cost $150. I started shopping early in September and noticed that they have a 90 day return policy. I understand this so I am not requesting a refund just a store credit. I was told that they will do nothing. The item is unopened and they still sell the product. This is a horrible way to treat the consumer especially since they just opened a Target right across from my work....
