My daughter in law just lost her job at Target along with several other Managers.. She was a dedicated worker for Target.

She got called in on Sunday Nov.20 and was told she was done..You did away with all your manager positions didn't matter they had families or health insurrance to worry about. After 20 some years of dedication poof her job was nothing.

I will never ever shop at target again. They may lose their home and the heartless people you are to do away with her job just before Christmas..I will do my shopping at Meijer and Walmart and get all family and friends to do the same..

Do You Have Something To Say ?

Yeah right DM, she should sue for wrongful termination. I can just imagine that. When asked why she was fired from Target. Her reply.

"Well I ate one Chocolate Bar. It cost only 70 cent and they fired me based on this simple 70 cent Chocolate Bar. However I a a good worker so they should not fire me.

She stole and they don't want to take chances, even though she only stole once.

I think the point being, we don't know WHY she got LAID OFF. Maybe her store did bad, sales-wise.

Or maybe she was too laxed, too unfair, too rude.

And yes, stealing is stealing whether its a candy bar or CD or 10 bucks from the register.

So, its sad that she lost her job but was she the cause of it???

For the person posting that there is no where where the mother said the daughter was stealing here is the proof. How this website works is the newer posts appear first. If you go to the very last page and the very last post you will notice this post.

I mean so she stole one CHOCOLATE BAR because she was hungry. SHe has been doing this for years and they only know about that one chocolate bar. They fired her because of this. What a bunch of morons. It was ONE CHOCOLATE BAR. Now because of that one chocolate bar she could lose her job. Because of ONE CHOCOLATE BAR. Target makes billions a year and she eats one 70 CENT CHOCOLATE BAR and they fire her after 20 years of dedication. She could lose her house and end up on the streets. During the cold weather, during Christmas time. What a bunch of heartless people.

As you can see the author admits that her daughter stole the chocolate bar. I have a feeling that the person claiming that this post never happened is a "blind" ex or disgrunted Target employee. They don't see what everyone else sees.

It sounds like they were looking for a reason and she gave them one. Sorry to hear she lost her job.

i work for target and our managers didnt get laid off... maybe her store had poor sales , in fact we just hired 3 new team leads, but our store makes the sales, one thing target does is take care of the smaller people FIRST for example, instead of giving management raises, they give level 1's raises FIRST , they would rather lay off 1 manager then 2 level ones..

The mother never said anything about no Candy bar you people you accused her of stealing are not reading and just writing what you want.. I am out of here and was a big mistake saying anything in here while apparently most of you don't have hearts.

ALL the MANAGERS were LET GO NOT JUST her ..For the Reason of not having to pay high wages.. I just wanted to say how unfair it is for ALL the MANAGERS to Have lost their jobs before CHRISTMAS..and the finacial burden all these families are now going to face....so for all the haters who have written accusing them of stealing and being theives.. must write wanting to be mean and hateful.

They were all good loyal workers their only fault was being long term employees who were making manager wages.. :p

I am sorry but stealing is stealing! Be it a candy bar or a cash drawer it is the same issue.

It is a decision of doing the right or wrong thing. It is unfortunate that your daughter was unable to make a good decision and it is now affecting the whole family.

The mother even said the daughter was fired for stealing a chocolate bar and the mother does not think that is grounds for firing her.

I am trying to make people understand how bad the economy is and how heartless they were to let all the management positions go and these people have families and health ins. that they no longer have.

Just so they can hire people they can pay mininum wage to. Less hours.

KbarUpit..

They had no reason only to hire cheaper help. She was manager material along with several others who also got the ax for the same reason..

They didn't want to pay them manager wages anymore. Jobs use to mean something for the amount of years you worked for them.. Not anymore your only a number.. She was a dedicated worker and worked what ever hours they asked of her.

She did not steal she wasn't a theif ..There is no other side to the issue and she wasn't the only one who was axed for the same reason.. Management and wanting to hire cheaper workers.

She got axed because they were getting rid of all their high paying employees so they can hire people and pay them minimum wage .. SHE DIDN'T Steal anything and SHE ISN'T A THEIF AS written by RICOLE AND DONUT...

GEEZ only goes to show where people's minds are ..

she did nothing wrong except work there to long and was a dedicated employee who lost her job for no reason.. just so they can pay someone else cheaper wages..

So you're daughter is a thief and you want to know what they fired her for. She does not deserver to work if she's a theif.

Plus she can't be that good of a manager/worker if she dosen't have the common sense to know not to screw up in this economy.

Target isn't making them loose everything, they are. Be a good parent stop blaming others for what your kids have done.

An employee where I worked got fired because he was stealing donuts from the cafeteria. Yet another employee was able to work here for 20+ years and humilate/demean disabled students. Show money rules the world.

Well it does not matter if the chocolate bar was only 70 cents. The fact remains the daughter stole it.

Could be ten cents she stole the choclate bar. Companies don't need to give two weeks notice before firing someone they fire you on the spot, especially for theft. Also Kbarupp I am pretty sure if the daughter did not steal the chocolate bars they would still want and need her.

Why should she support her daughter who is a thief? The letter does not explain the reason she was fired but her reply does.

Sorry your daughter got the ax by Target. You did not indicate the reason given for her being fired but really, Target does not need a reason.

I'll bet they gave her one. Any employee can give a company two weeks notice before resigning to go to another company. Why can't a company do the same thing. Just because Target is a large corporation does not mean they have to hang on to someone they no longer need...or want.

The economy sucks right now and companies are looking for ways to cut expenses.

The largest expense in any company is usually staffing. Support your daughter but understand there may be another side of this issue that your daughter has not disclosed to you.

They fired her because of this. What a bunch of morons. It was ONE CHOCOLATE BAR. Now because of that one chocolate bar she could lose her job.

Because of ONE CHOCOLATE BAR. Target makes billions a year and she eats one 70 CENT CHOCOLATE BAR and they fire her after 20 years of dedication. She could lose her house and end up on the streets.

During the cold weather, during Christmas time. What a bunch of heartless people.
