I too am a former Target employee with a similar situation as I have actually been let go from Target corp after 16yrs. I have never been written up, or had any kind of coaching or corrective action in my life, nor have I ever known a Team Leader who was, that is until recently. 4 team leaders have been fired from just my former store alone, with one more on the way. All of those let go have had 15 plus years in, one actually had 22. And thats just one store I cant seem to get an accurate number of how many have been let go in other area stores but I know there are many. And the reasons are absurd. They seem to have documentation of conversations I never had with execs. They can make up anything they want, its our word against theres. There is even a new District Manager. This is however affecting executives too. Many Store Managers and other upper management execs have been let go as well. From what Ive seen my last few months there, Target is no longer about the guest, they are only about Target. So your comment from their spokesperson is not accurate, maybe if she had ever worked at store level she would see that. People joke and make comments, but this is real and this is how people survive. We need our jobs more than ever, but Target seems to think its ok to throw people away.
