It would be one thing if they said, hey, if you don’t have a lot of AP stuff to do, I’d appreciate it if you could help out, but no. A couple managers here are considerate of that, but for the most part, it’s just taking for granted that I’m going to do someone else’s job.

They’re not even my boss. Technically only my direct supervisor and the store manager are the only ones in the store who have charge over me.

Just. Fuck this. I need to promote out of this shitty position.

When the second I get to work, haven’t even made it to the time clock yet, I’m told that I’ll be doing trash and helping work on the sales floor…

This is just getting downright disrespectful and degrading. No wonder we get so much theft, because there is zero consideration for the job the theft prevention team is SUPPOSED to be doing.

Anonymous asked: I was creeping through your stories, sorry, I work at Target too, but mine is so so so obsessed with donating to United Way. Like the head of the whole store (I'm so bad with the manager acronyms like GSTLUYAIM no thank you) pressures us personally to donate. He came up to me at my register as I was checking people out and asked me how much I was going to donate and I just give them money because I'm awkwardly bullied into it.

Weiiiirrrd…  I’ve seen stores promote United Way, but dang, never heard about anyone that crazy about it.  The first store I worked at held a fund-raising contest for one of the team leaders to get a pie in the face, so they made that kind of fun.  And when I joined my last store, the ETL-HR gave me the pitch, told me she personally appreciates what United Way does, but no pressure if I didn’t want to give.  And then my current boss handed me the donation sheet just like, “Yeah whatever.”  Heheh.

But man, yeah, that sucks that they bully you like that, putting you on the spot in front of guests, ‘cause then if you say no, then you just look like a dick in front of everyone Dx  And aren’t donations supposed to be confidential???  Guh.  Target is just.  GUH.

The other day I saw two teenage girls playing with a shopping cart. One of them was sitting in it while the other pushed her and nearly crashed into a clothing rack, and when I told them the basket is for children only, one of them replied with a really snotty “Why?” And I just told them for safety, but it took every fiber of my being not to scream BECAUSE YOU NEARLY CRASHED INTO A CLOTHING RACK YOU STUPID FUCKING CHILD.

I found out later in the evening that after that, they went and stole some condoms.

I’m sorry but if you’re so immature as to play with a cart like that, and so immature that you can’t face a cashier to buy condoms, then maybe you’re not mature enough to do the deed. At least they’re being safe, but christ, it’s an adult act, so maybe try not to be such a fucking child.

And I bet they’re the types of teens who are like, “WAH, I’M NOT A CHILD ANYMOOOORE, WHY DOES EVERYONE STILL TREAT ME LIKE A CHIIIILLLD.” Because look at your life, look at your choices.

Anonymous asked: I work at a Tarbucks and I hate it so much. I was praying to God that I would break my arm or something before my shift. When that didn't happen I called off. I figured that if I was hoping for bodily harm I probably shouldn't even be going in the first place. I don't even care if I get fired anymore. I fucking hate that place.

I felt exactly the same when I worked at a Tarbucks. I concerned my parents when I said sometimes I hope someone runs their car into me on the way to work, because I’d rather lie in the hospital for a few days than go in to work. I would never self harm or do anything intentionally harmful, but it was just the thought that something so horrible would be preferable to going in to work at Tarbucks.

And I also reached a point where I didn’t care if I got fired or not, so I started secretly taking sandwiches home after I closed, but I never got caught.

"It’s job security lololol!"

Ok this is very tl;dr, but it’s important.  At least I think it’s pretty important and I’d really like this information to reach further than the retail griping community, because we all know the truth, but the assholes who actually say this shit need to learn a thing.

When you go in a store and make a mess under the mindset that it’s “job security,” first of all, shame on you.  I know your momma must have taught you better.  SHAME.  ON YOU.  For not only behaving like an embarrassing child, but for attempting to legitimize this horrific behavior through uninformed, ignorant logic.

Let me tell you exactly WHY this is not “job security,” and in fact, might actually COST some people their jobs.

If you genuinely care about job security - which you don’t, you’re just being a trashy piece of shit - you’ll buy things in the store instead of just slopping the place up.  When a company decides how many people they will employ and how many people will be scheduled at a certain time, it all depends on SALES.  No one gives the tiniest little shit about how big of a mess the store is.  They’re going to only look at how much money they’re making.

That being said, when you walk into a store and throw crap wherever the fuck you feel like, you are HURTING SALES.  People are more inclined to buy when the shelves look nice and neat, and when they can easily find what they’re looking for.  So when the store looks a mess and less people buy product, less employees are put on the schedule, so that’s LESS PEOPLE to clean up your HUGE MESSES.  And have you ever gone into a store and had trouble finding an employee to help you?  Yep, you got it - it’s because of sales.

Messy store = less sales = less available employees = even less sales = even less employees.  Get it?

I used to work at the Target in town.  Now I work at one a couple towns over.  My current store is MUCH busier than the local one, yet we have the same staffing.  Seems ridiculous, right?  How can the same number of people deal with a higher volume of customers?  Why would the company do such a thing with all the “job security” coming through the store to mess up our nicely organized shelves?  The exact reason is SALES.  The two stores are similar in sales.  No one gives a shit that more people come into my current store to fuck it up.  They just look at the money people spend, and you know, we probably could make more in sales if we had the number of people to deal with the messes made, or more employees available to help guests.

So really, you guys are just hurting yourselves by trashing up a store.  If you pick something up to look at it, it’s really not that hard to set it back down where you found it, as opposed to just throwing it randomly.

And yes, yes, there’s the other famous line, “It’s someone’s job to do it,” but that’s cool.  Just tell me where you work and I’ll come and make your job 10x harder for you to do, just because “it’s your job to do it.”

You wouldn’t walk into someone’s home and leave a huge mess for them to clean up after you because it’s THEIR home to clean.  Of course not, that would be rude and embarrassing so why should a store be any different?  The employees are human beings too, so please try to remember that.
