A Target worker has sparked debate about Target’s employee retention after posting a TikTok saying that the company’s breakroom Christmas tree has stuck around longer than some employees.

In the video posted by TikToker @target_violations on Wednesday, a worker shows a clip of the breakroom with the Christmas tree still up in June. The text overlay reads, “The Christmas tree be lasting longer than peoples’ employment.”

The video has amassed over 357,000 views as of Tuesday, with commenters discussing Target’s alleged reputation of cutting hours and poor employee retention.

“Yea really I was fired because of “performance” yet my hours were getting cut. Hm seemed weird that other people got fired for the same thing,” one user said.

“I got hired at target in October and they told me 2 days before Christmas that I was getting let go!” another wrote.

“They fired the person in charge of taking the tree down,” a third joked.

In a comment, @target_violations addressed the debate on Target’s workplace environment, saying “to be fair Target has been pretty good to me, others not so much.”

The Daily Dot reached out to @target_violations via TikTok comment and to Target via email.
