Cafe Server

June 2019 • East Greenbush, NY

What I liked

I love working with customers, especially little kids who come in and ask for popcorn. Making pizzas and pastas is easy, and for the most part my shifts go quickly because there is always something to do.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have been trained in my own store, and that our facilities were cleaner. I try very hard to keep it clean, but it has been mismanaged since before I started and so there is only so much I can change.

Advice

When working in any job, but particularly a minimum wage job, always find something to do. A manager will notice when it is a slow and you are finding odd cleaning and/or organization jobs. This makes your shift feel faster, and it will help the facility as a whole to run smoother.

Cart Attendant

June 2014 • Sterling, VA

What I liked

I really like the fact that I get to have more experience in customer service. I learns how to speak to others in a more professional level like greet customers. Also how to deal with problems at hand on my own without any assistance.

What I wish was different

I would have done an internship with my company if I had known they had one early on.

Advice

My advice to others about this experience is that the job will help you get out of your shell if you are shy and closed off like me. It allows me to change into a whole different person for the better in terms of talking to people, not being shy, or simply asking questions when I have to.

November 2013 • Chanhassen, MN

What I liked

Freedom to operate with little to no supervision while being able to complete all of the tasks asked of me and more within a forty hour work week.

What I wish was different

The pay.

Advice

Target's new goals and processes have made safety in the backroom less in important and can be unnerving. This is also a relatively simple job.

Cashier

May 2017 • Columbus, IN

What I liked

It's easy and the hourly rate is better than most similar positions

What I wish was different

It doesn't have anything to do with what I want to do after oberlin

Advice

It's okay to not do some magical internship that changes your life. Summer is a good time to take a break and work on things you love. I got an easy summer job so that I could devote other time to doing things that are important to me and grow me as a person.

Cashier

June - September 2019 • McKinney, TX

What I liked

I liked how invested the managers were in their employees— they constantly stressed that they would rather work with you to improve your situation than have you leave. They let me take an education leave when I moved to college so I didn’t have to quit, and now I have a stable job every time I come back home.

What I liked

The people who ran the target were really nice people and had an effective way of talking and always dealing with the team.

What I wish was different

Sometimes the scheduling would be a little weird because it was paper schedules, so I think it should of been all electronically done.

Advice

When it comes to work retail, you got to have patience, and you got to have people skills for sure. You talk to a LOT of people.

Style Team Consultant

May 2018 • Sandusky, OH

What I liked

I enjoy working there because I can help individuals with their clothing wants and needs.

What I wish was different

Nothing really, except the long hours but it pays for school.

Advice

Make sure you have the heart for it, It is an awesome job but takes a lot of your mental strength. Of course it is nothing like a job you can have with a degree in something you are interested in but it sure is a start.
