Target

Target Security Specialist

March 2020 • Cincinnati, OH

What I liked

What I like about this job is that it gives me the opportunity to directly make a positive impact on the shopping experience of our guests by ensuring that the store is safe and minimizing merchandise loss.

What I wish was different

Advice

I was apprehensive about starting this job because it was unlike any other I had before. However, I took my positive mindset and work ethic into the job and eventually hit my stride with it. My advice is to get out of your comfort zone as soon as you can because it could pay off in a big way. Don't let apprehensiveness keep you from taking a job or doing anything you wish to do.
