Sales associate

October 2017 - December 2019 • Killingly, CT

What I liked

My co-workers created a positive environment that I enjoyed being in and was able to be myself

What I wish was different

I would’ve liked to see more room for growth in terms of earning greater pay over time by taking on more responsibility. Taking on extra work was not rewarded.

If you’re no longer enjoying something or are looking for something different then try and make that change.

Guest Service Advocate

May 2018 • Swansea, MA

What I liked

I love the training I received at Target and the recent push to make a unique and lasting impact on guest experience. Although tricky to adjust at first, it makes my position feel purposeful and guests really appreciate the service they receive.

What I wish was different

The introduction to the new team leads was definitely an adjustment compared to the previous supervisors.

Working in retail is great experience working with people and learning how to problem solve. It will be beneficial in any career path.

Operations Manager Intern

June - August 2019 • Shafter, CA

What I liked

I enjoyed the opportunity to improve my overall business acumen. I was able to learn many complex systems that Target uses for it's Supply Chain and the metrics that are used to track real time productivity. I also had a great time being able to lead my own team for the final three weeks of the internship. Overall, the internship helped me grow as a leader and improved my interpersonal skills quite a bit.

What I wish was different

I wish the internship was a bit more structured. I felt that there were times in which the mentor assigned to me for the duration of the internship did not know what she wanted me to do. I think have more projects to do and a more organized structure would've been beneficial.

Advice

The main piece of advice that I would share about this experience is that it is for someone with an open mind to their job environment. Working in a warehouse and communicating with a rather diverse workforce in a high demanding situation is not for everyone but you can learn quite a bit with an open mind.

Tech Team Member

January 2018 - August 2019 • Nashville, TN

What I liked

They were good with scheduling and allowing me the time off I needed to take a month off for a mission trip. I also made $13 an hour which was nice.

What I wish was different

They dissolved a bunch of teams and gave their responsibilities to me. It was more work than any one human could handle without help, and they very rarely scheduled me the help I’d need.

Advice

Don’t let someone get mad at you for not meeting unrealistic expectations. If you find yourself in a hostile work environment, start looking for employment elsewhere.
