That's ridiculous. And just add it to the list of the insane hoops that Target makes people go through. I was in Target on Super Bowl Sunday and they seemed to be short handed, so I asked the cashier(the only one open) what was going on. She said they were short 3 people, one called in sick and two were no shows.

So I said "oh the no shows must get fired for not calling in and not showing up", she said "oh only after a few times".

So I guess as long as you don't smoke pot and have good credit, showing up to work doesn't matter...LOL. To bad for us customers who had to wait on a long line, no doubt in my mind the Super Bowl had something to do with the lack of staff.

I think Target has some odd ways of doing things.



They have the cameras to review the tapes. If they suspect an employee is stealing they will get caught. They don't have to see it live if it is an employee. The reason they focus on store floor is they have to get the shoplifter at that moment, an employee who is stealing can be confronted after the fact.
And it may be a long time before they discover missing merchandise. Reviewing all those hours of tapes will be very time consuming.

Your assumption of what I may or may not be assuming is baseless.

However, the assumption made by potential employers is that if someone tests positive for drugs in their system in the past x number of days, it is possible they may have a problem that will interfere with their job performance in one of any number of ways. You can argue about the validity of that assumption all you want. The employer may decide it isn't worth the risk.

I love threads like these. You got to wonder if WestPhillyDude really exists, or this is just one long troll.

The scary thing is that he works as an employment counselor helping other people obtain work.

It's not just some dishes and it is a lot of work that requires you to be on your feet for prolonged periods of time. One of my friends was trying to get in the door at Cheescake Factory and he only had a bit of experience cooking. He started as a dishwasher. He was on his feet from 5pm-1am most days. He had to clean not just dishes but also heavy cooking equipment, grills, griddles, kitchen counters, food stations, ect. And if not warned, these items could be greasy and hot still. You have to clean and disinfect each item thoroughly. So it's not just rinsing off a few dirty dishes.

WPD, sometimes I think you're putting us on.

If someone has knowledge of computers they shouldn't be anywhere near a dish washing room. Dishwashing jobs should only be for those who

have limited work experience
criminal background
