I work in Target – the customers we hate the most do something so bad it's been branded worse than stealing

A TARGET worker has slammed customers who leave unwanted items in the aisles – with some TikTokers branding the habit worse than stealing.

Kaitlin Sonday vented in a TikTok clip about shoppers that left two pizzas in the aisle next to the bath bombs.

She said: “Guys I literally can’t make this up. People think oh I stage these but I literally don’t.”

Sonday explained in the clip that saw the pizzas as she was walking down the aisle.

TikTokers shared the worker's fury as they flooded the comments section underneath her clip.

One said: “It’s as bad as stealing but you don’t get in trouble for it and nobody gets to eat the food… worse than technically.”

I work at Target – how to get items which AREN’T normally in-store for cheaper

Another TikToker, who claims to work at Target, said they found a potato in the beauty section of the retailer.

A social media user said: “This reminds me when someone tried hiding a watermelon on my check lane as if I wouldn’t see a giant watermelon next to the candy.”

Other workers claimed they have an album dedicated to the habit.

Furious TikTokers said customers should hand unwanted items back to workers rather than just leaving them in the middle of the aisles.

One simply posted: “Welcome to (the) carelessness of these days.”

Some viewers claimed they had seen unwanted items lying in the aisles at other retailers.

The Sun revealed how employees reportedly have just 15 seconds to respond to a customer’s call for help.

Michael, who works in the Los Angeles area, revealed that employees could take a hit on their customer service scores if they fail to meet the request.

He said shoppers can use the small call buttons or telephones found in the store's different departments when they need assistance.

If Target workers don’t meet the deadline, then they will get a second notice from the system.


If they miss it a third time, then they could take a hit on their customer service scores.

We also revealed that Target employees use their own secret language.

Many employees apparently hate when they have to do a "clopen," Mental Floss reported.

It refers to an annoying situation where employees have a closing shift and then open the store the next morning.

Ex-Target employee Adam told the outlet: “I’d (like to) get rid of the clopen shifts.”

And, a so-called "reshop” refers to merchandise that’s out of place and needs to be returned to its home location.

Zoning is the practice of organizing every item on the shelves so the labels are facing forward.

Target workers are known for their red shirts and khaki pants but sometimes customers can be mistaken for employees.
