    I like how OP put the link for the employee reviews on this article. This company should know that if they slip in this town OP will be on their shit.

      I hope OP keeps that promise! yes, retail employment is ‘hard’ ,but they should not be treated like ‘slaves’

    read the majority of the employee comments, and it doesn’t sound like a good place to work! In fact if I didn’t know better , I’d think it was TARGET! from an ‘ex’ employee of Target! the only thing I didn’t see was the ‘morning’ exercises! Whoever ‘opened’ had to take part but weren’t happy about it! (who wants to do this as soon as you clocked in?) the only advice I would give potential employees of a ‘retail’ store like this, READ the employee comments, THEN decide if the money is good enough to put up with the ‘ slave labor’ you are required to do! at least Target let the employees buy Target stock , oh wait ! that’s right ! ONLY if you were level 3 or up! the other thing is that ’employees inured on the job and working ‘lite’ duty were virtually not considered one of the ‘Target Family’ and i was one of them! They worked people (me) out of Dr.s orders, and if you complain to Human Resource Office, they would raise hell with dept. mgrs.(Insurance doesn’t like paying for ‘re-injury’ but I was forced to ‘fold’ dozens of pairs of men’s jeans with my arm in a sling! the Mgr. on duty wouldn’t let me ‘clock out at 9:00 per Dr.s orders for lite duty! she carried the key like it was the key to Fort Knox, all the while telling me to ‘hit the floor’ and straighten the clothing tables (again folding (repeated action not good for what ended up to be a ‘complete tear of my rotator cuff’)requiring surgery! She was chastised but It was ‘still’ not enough for her, until I got a lawyer (which I had not even considered up til’ that point) so she ended up ‘costing Target’ a LOT of money because she didn’t have good decision making skills! Oh, yes, the law suit (workers comp was not happy)! I got the highest $$$$$ in the History of Target on the job injuries !(can’t say how much, as I could be sued!)

    Glad to see one moving down south. I love shopping there even if the merchandise is from overstock or where ever. I know I can find items there that I can’t find at Walmart. I go there for small appliances, bath supplies, I find odd things there, I even got a large pet carrier for less than 1/2 of what it would of cost elsewhere only because it had a slight flaw (the door wouldn’t close because a piece of plastic was not filed down on the hole) Great bargains, just have to look.
