At my Target, the cashiers are treated like crap. Some days, we get yelled at for taking a breath without letting them know. On top of that, when other workers come up and buy things, they take their time. They know we have a timer but they don't care. I see them sitting around or chatting and laughing and I just get miffed. On top of that, most of the cashiers that have been hired lately have either quit or just not bothered to show up. I overheard a conversation with one of the sales floor tms where one was saying that she was happy she didn't know how to ring and crap like that.
Then one day, I had to leave early because someone had scheduled me overtime...seriously, they had gotten so happy with my schedule that they went over. Then I was about to leave and a girl from softlines came in all huffy and looked at me about to punch out.
SG: Whoa, where do you think you're going?
Me: I have to go or I'll get overtime.
SG: It's not fair! Cashiers get to leave by ten but us at softlines can't leave until like 12! They always call us up to ring when they need backup too!
Me: It wasn't my idea. I don't write my own schedule!
SG: Still, it really sucks. It would be nice if we coule leave early but most of softlines is minors and blah, blah, blah.
So, she goes on to gloat about how she has taken a week off for prom.
If she was a minor she was lying about not leaving until twelve. Pretty much everywhere minors have to leave by ten. At my target... they won't schedule minors past 9:45
Oh and salesfloor pretty much always leaves by eleven... except around Christmas.
