Target

Style

June 2019 • Boulder, CO

What I liked

The hourly flexibility, the staff, and the community

What I wish was different

There was drama if you chose to be a part of it but it wasn’t obvious and in your face. Communication also seemed to be an issue and they would often schedule me less than I had asked for.

Advice

Take the job at face value. It isn’t the worst job in the world but it also isn’t glamorous - it’s a retail job and you’ll deal with rude customers often, but you just got to make the best of it.
