What I liked
Having worked in this same position at a Target in East Hanover for roughly a year prior, transferring to the store in Bridgewater was largely seamless. Equipment and rules remained consistent, with me only having to adjust to a new store layout. The department leader, store manager and HR team were consistently approachable and respectful of my needs, and often worked alongside me. They were extremely accepting of any schedule changes I needed to make, while keeping me informed in person of any opportunities for extra hours, and via email of potential benefits I was eligible for (e.g. their 401k plan).
As for the work itself, my Flexible Fulfillment position presented a wide range of potential jobs to perform in a single day, with me often alternating between them to meet store deadlines and demands. I might find myself picking items for most of the day to complete online orders, but occasionally completing order pick-ups for guests near the front of the store as they appear, and helping other team members pack the orders I had picked. Even with all of these different jobs at my disposal, understanding and juggling them has been fairly easy since I was first employed at Target in the summer of 2018. The easy-to-use equipment and a very supportive team are big contributors to making the variety of jobs liberating rather than stressful. Altogether, my time working for Target - which I plan to continue - easily surpassed my expectations for an entry-level retail job, with far better pay, hours, team cohesion and work variety than most would probably expect for such a position.
