Talk with HR or a backroom team leader about that...

I forgot when I first read that, but I remembered that you can change your area location when you clock in...Because you're hired as a cart attendant, that's your automatic area location when you clock in, but if you're scheduled for cashier, you can specifically change your area location to that...I don't know if it's exactly mandated that you do so if you work multiple area locations (Especially since I personally don't know, since I've never done anything but backroom), but that's what you can do...



Anyway, I'm gonna have fun at work today...I feel like throwing sales floor off on a loop, since it annoys the hell out of me everytime sales floor calls backroom for something (I know it's part of my job, but I hate being in the middle of a CAF pull and then have to answer a call, anything between a quest wanting something from the backroom or fuckin' guest service wanting some goddamn boxes)...I'm gonna start using ten-codes and procedure words when responding, just to strangle communication effectiveness and see how long before people catch up with what I'm doing...

If our walkies had signal buttons like children's walkies do, I'd learn morse code and use that instead of vocational communication...

Sorry to hear that, but that's what I (and thesuresh0t, probably) figured.

Most of the time when a company gives you the "we'll call you in x days", you ain't gettin' the job.

Oh, BTW, They send you a cheesy postcard, self addressed, typed generic message..

"Hello, thanks for taking the time to apply with us.
While we're unable to offer you a position at this time,
we do appreciate your interest in Target."

You can wear dress pants and a blazer or sports jacket. Avoid baggy clothing, gaudy chains, bracelets, ear rings, sneakers and boots etc. At last don’t forget to wear well-polished shoes.

Starting pay here was $6.50. It was $6.00 originally, but as I started, they raised the minimum.

After four months of working there, I still hadn't gotten a 90-day raise.. and they just said "it's coming".

Fuck that. I quit working there.

I started stocking overnight at Wal-Mart in grocery. I hated doing that.. and I made a lousy 6.95 (for OVERNIGHT). I later found out that the next lowest paid associate made a nickel more than me and simply pushed carts all night. The lowest paid overnight stocker other than me? Started at $7.50. Difference? I was in school, he graduated.

I washed dishes at a hospital for a while through a temp agency, and was offered a job there on THEIR payroll ($7/hour).. but I didn't want to do that forever.

Anyways, I got out of the bullshit. I work for Truman Arnold Companies (at RoadRunner) as a maintenance person and I make right around $7.78/hour depending on my monthly bonus. Minimum wage is 6.25, so it's not too bad.

yeah, i'm back.

The pay I gave was for Backroom Day, though...

Working for the backroom paid more than sales floor and cashier, since it was more physically demanding...

I'm glad they do that. There are things I said on this forum that state some pretty strong hatred for Target, but if what you say is true, at least I'll say they are right to pay people who work harder more money.

By the way, PC, where the hell have you been - missed you.
