Apparels and Accessories Sales person

May - August 2019 • Boulder, CO

What I liked

I liked a lot of my coworkers here. Most of of became really close friends so that made work go by fast.

What I wish was different

The communication within this Target location was terrible. Since my colleagues and I weren't considered "point people" we were often left out of the loop for lots of tasks. This lack of communication also results in employees getting chewed out or even laid off without notice (like in my case) because team leaders do not communicate about people calling in and such. Communication skills are so important when it comes to large corporations like this and it was disappointing/frustrating to experience everything that I did since I ended up getting the short end of the stick. Despite doing everything I was instructed to do for my situation.

Advice

As someone whose worked in the apparels and Accessories department, you can't have thin skin. I dealt with lots of difficult customers and point people so it's important to not take a lot of anger personally. If someone is soft hearted and easy to stress, I wouldn't reccomend this job to them.

Cashier

July 2018 - August 2019 • Manteca, CA

What I liked

The people that I met while working. They were honestly the only thing that kept me from quitting for so long

What I wish was different

Never applied because target sucks. I worked there an entire year and on my review (after they had me cover multiple shifts, work positions outside of being a cashier, etc.) They gave me a whopping $0.20 raise. 20 cents. The company DOES NOT care about you I can promise you that.

Advice

If you dont like doing the same exact thing over and over and over again definitely dont be a cashier at target. Also I wish I would have asked for more of a raise once they had me doing tasks outside of my position because they basically take advantage of you not asking.

beauty specialist

July - September 2019 • Santa Rosa, CA

What I liked

I liked the community that was built with employers and employees. I also liked that they had a variety of hours that fit your schedule during the Summer. The task were always straightforward.

What I wish was different

I wish I had started working there sooner and the background process didn't take so long. I wish the hiring process was a little more quicker because it took me about three weeks after being hired to start working.

Advice

I encourage people to apply not only to the register position but also to other positions. Some people may not know that there is more than just the register such as beauty and style.
