Target / laid off

1 6600 Richmond HwyAlexandria, VA, United States Review updated:

I was hired in November 2008, working as a instock team, working so hard, because a lot staff was very heavy. I just had a baby in September and I needed money for my two girls. I was coming every time they call me to come for help. My mom came from other coutry to help me with babysitting my kids so I can work whatever time. And in January they told me that I was hired for seasonal and they letting me go!!! Other people hired in the same time like me stayed. They didn't offer me any other job. Now is and of Fabruary and I'm sitting at home with my mom and my 2 years old and 5 months old making no money. Anyway they payed me only $8.50/hour !!! for such a hard work!!!
I think that's because they discriminating people from other countrys, and because manager is gay, I have nothing against but this one don't like woman, he just want you to lift heavy furnitures and other stuff without help and restock the whole store fast.
They proud of good scores in the district but everything is for show, especially when big bosses from headquarters coming pay a visit, they fixing the store for the 4 days before. You know that when customer press the red button/phone for help, someone have to come within 1 min, if not they loosing points, oterwise no one will come.
If someone looking for a job in Target I'm not recommending, they hiring people all the time because no one want to stay and no one getting enough hours (to many employees). Thay even hired new people when let me go. Total stupidity!!! Maybe because the HR Melisa is to young and unexperience with jobs and life, and how it is to have a family and raise children.

    What do you know 16 years old not an adult person? Can you vote? You didn't understand the whole point of my complaint. You think that I care about grammar? Do you even know other language than yours? You are so wrong about me, so don't judge people you don't even know. Go study instead sitting all day at pc. What about your parents, probablly don't know for what you using it.

    "Target probably fired you because of your poor English skills not because they are discriminating against you." Jason Tillo

    "I never said they fired you stupid lady...No where did I imply she was fired." Jason Tillo


    Dude! Where the hell are your meds!!??

    And why don't YOU learn a second language, like common decency or compassion, for example.

    Also, if you are going to pick apart someone else's use of the English language (especially if it is that person's second language), you should by all rights consider the manner in which you so atrociuosly butcher it yourself. Your constant use of epithets to compensate for your inability to communicate intelligently and effectually is indicative of an ignorant, rebellious, and argumentative teenager, nothing more.

    Leave the poor girl alone. The mouths she is concerned about feeding are vastly more important than the twisted ego you seek to feed. Your attack is completely unwarranted and despicable, and I feel sorry for you if you are the kind of person who feels empowered by such rot. There are, and never have been, people of a more vile or cowardly nature than those.

    I have work at Target for two years now and I have seen and heard the same complaint from people that where hired on around Christmas. When they are let go they ### and complain for not being told they where only temporary. It's should be your job to find out if you are going to be working there temporary.

    What's wrong MAC? Cannot type or spell correctly with those big, fat greasy fingers?

    To the person who was laid off, I agree that you should be let go from Target. I hate when I go shopping and have to deal with lazy people like yourself. "Boo hoo, someone pushed a button and I no want to help them. I has too many chidren and the world owes me"

    How are they supposed to keep someone for guest service when that person can't even communicate? I have worked instocks, it isn't that hard. For the job that you do, 8.50 is plenty. And besides, if you were so good and the pay was so bad, how have you not found any other employment?

    I have read everyone’s comments, and of course the target ex-employee complaint. I feel for those who have no feelings for other human beings, and who get satisfaction from hurting others by any means. I agreed with John 7777, who put it very nicely. Let us not forget how this county was build; read your history and have compassion. The Lord loves everyone and he has patience, but he will punish those who are cruel to others. You may think you are not doing anything bad by speaking such ugly words; how ignorant of you. As for blania, I know you are upset, but using words that reflect negative connotation against any group of people was not a good choice. So be selective of your words; it can be simple but not offensive. As for the job, I know you must be angry and it is hard to find employment with this crazy economy. Keep the hope, take that negative energy and put it to good work. Search the internet for all kinds of jobs. I know people that have taken 2 or 3 part time jobs, just to make ends meet. Pray to the Lord to help you find the job that will be suitable for you. Best of luck a friend.
