A Target employee took to TikTok to reveal the many reasons she quit her job, including a promotion that didn’t come with a raise.
The worker, Nicole Henderson (@nnicolehederson), posted a photo video slideshow illustrating “times when [she] worked at Target which changed [her] brain chemistry.” In the caption of the video, she says she’s “so glad” she quit.
One of the first photos in the slideshow shows a handwritten note from one of his former colleagues saying they quit and were leaving early because they were sick. Henderson says it happened during his first week on the job.
Another photo shows 46-pound dog food that a guest allegedly told them to “just throw in the bed of the truck.” Other factors that caused her to quit include retrieving shopping carts for eight hours in the ice, unwashed employee jackets, “busy” driving hours, retrieving carts at the other end of the parking lot and an eight-hour shift in the rain. because other employees called in sick. Henderson says managers also started giving employees checklists and she often had to move huge soda orders.
Additionally, she claims that a “Karen” once ordered several exercise weights that Henderson had to move into her car, resulting in a cart weighing 220 pounds. Another time, Henderson says it was “10,000 degrees,” and his managers gave employees a hearty Gatorade.
To top it all off, Henderson claims she received a promotion to change faces, but it didn’t come with a raise.
Viewers said they would not accept a promotion without a raise either.
“A promotion without a raise? Yeah, I’ll be out too,” one viewer commented.
“Promoted but no raise? hell no,” wrote another.
Some users have claimed that Target is a “toxic” place to work.
“Brother, the drive system is so toxic,” one user said.
“Target was toxic when I worked there 14 years ago. So glad I left!” a second user wrote.
The Daily Dot reached out to Henderson via a TikTok comment and Target via email.
