Team member

June 2020 • Hamilton, OH

What I liked

The team supervisors were very friendly and helpful when you needed help finding something for an order or for a customer.

What I wish was different

I wish I had gotten more hours more consistently, although I always requested to stay longer if I had a short shift that day.

Advice

Always request to stay longer if you have a shorter shift because management will be more willing to work with you to increase your hours and possibly even wage because of your dedication and hard work.

May 2020 • Marlton, NJ

What I liked

A friendly work environment and a great place to learn a. wide variety of skills

What I wish was different

I was only trained in the most basic ways and had to learn how to handle problems on the fly, which was sometimes stressful if it was busy or the guest was frustrated.

Advice

It’s okay to make mistakes! Before you know it, you’ll be an expert and be training the new people.

Assistant Store Manager

July 2020 • Los Angeles, CA

What I liked

I liked the opportunity that I had to learn from all my mentors that taught me how to be an effective executive and strong leader. My HR rep taught me how to be a professional in the workplace and how to lead my team.

What I wish was different

I wish my internship would have been longer. It was supposed to be 10 weeks but was postponed by 4 weeks because of the pandemic. However, they did offer me an extended internship for the holiday break and a full-time offer for after college. I am super thankful for everything that I experienced in this program.

Advice

One piece of advice I would share about this experience is learn to think high scope and understand the extensive purpose of the decisions you make in the workplace. That helped my professional development tremendously.

Guest Service Rep

September 2016 • Sayville, NY

What I liked

My favorite part of working at target is the strong sense of community within the organization. You develop strong relationships with Target's guest and are actively involved within the Sayville community.

What I wish was different

I wish that I had been able to learn about more managerial positions such as a team leader or human resource specialist.

Advice

I advise that you engage with your fellow team members and leaders. Learn about each other on personal and professional level. Networking can be done everywhere and there's no one better to network with than people who are aware of your strong work ethic.

Cashier

July 2016 • Amherst, NY

What I liked

I love interacting with people and when you’re a cashier you have to talk to a lot of people which was cool for me.

What I wish was different

I wish I could’ve worked a little more.

Advice

I would say to treat others how you would want to be treated because I know when I go to the store I would want someone nice to greet me and cash me out, because sometimes something as simple as that can put someone in a good mood.

Style Expert

May 2017 • York, PA

What I liked

I like the overall atmosphere of the retail store and the team.

What I wish was different

I honestly do not have a comment what I wish was different.

Advice

I advice anyone in the Fashion Merchandise & Design track to have retail experience for at least one year. It is very beneficial to your resume, the experience is great and you actually get to use some of the knowledge that you learned in merchandise and design classes.

What I liked

I enjoy working with my coworkers the most. I met new people that I would have never had the opportunity to meet without my job.

What I wish was different

I wish I had been better able to balance my personal time and work schedule.

Advice

I advise people to just put themselves out there. I never thought I would get a job at Target but it made my summer and bettered me as a person.

General Merchandise Expert

April - October 2019 • Marquette, MI

What I liked

I liked how understanding everyone was, and I really appreciated my lead, Lindsey, for being supportive and friendly. Everyone was very helpful.

What I wish was different

I wish the job hadn’t caused as much stress as it did for me. It was really a fun place to work, but I felt very challenged to keep up most days. In the end, it just wasn’t the job for me.

Advice

Go in to the job knowing and understanding your expectations. You will be expected to work at a quick pace and you will have to learn a lot. If you enjoy a fast-paced job that keeps you moving throughout the day, it’ll be a good job for you. And one more thing—if a job doesn’t fulfill you, you aren’t doing yourself or your employer any favors by staying. Go find something that will be fulfilling. It’s okay to try a job and leave if it doesn't fit your needs.

Team Member

June 2016 • Shakopee, MN

What I liked

Honestly I don't really enjoy it anymore. It's just convenient for me. It used to be kind of fun, but now it's frustrating and monotonous.

What I wish was different

I wish they would stop changing procedures every other month. Just choose one way that you want us to stock shelves. Putting things out is so simple in concept and somehow corporate has made it a confusing nightmare and changes their mind on how best to do it all the time.

Advice

Working in retail sucks and working in the lowest paying position offered by a retail company is the worst of all. You get the worst of all experiences - bratty customers, low pay, management that doesn't know what they're doing because the turnaround rate is disgustingly high and an unfeeling corporation that doesn't actually care about any of that nonsense.
