Beauty Consultant

October 2017 - August 2019 • Boise, ID

What I liked

For Idaho, it’s a great pay. Training is clear, and the fast pace makes long shifts go by quickly. Among lower level employees there’s a strong team culture, and opportunities to build quality friendships with coworkers.

What I wish was different

After several management shifts as well as changes in corporate policy, it began to feel like lower level employees were tools and not people. They avoid paying benefits by drastically cutting hours if team members get close to approaching full time. The pay can be inconsistent because of this unless you’re ready to fight to pick up extra shifts beyond your department.

Advice

It’s a demanding retail experience with a large team of employees. Aside from your immediate superior you shouldn’t expect much support or attention from management. There’s a definite corporate feel, so it’s important to have strong connections with your peers.

Cashier

June 2017 • Seekonk, MA

What I liked

I liked working with the guests and being part of a team. I liked doing things independently and feeling like I had control.

What I wish was different

Sometimes shift changes can be sloppy and sometimes it feels like there’s no room for growth. Other times there is no supervisor around to help you when you need it.

Advice

It’s a good job, just do what you need to do and you’ll be fine. I recommend this employer highly.

What I liked

Such an awesome experience learning deep managerial experience within Target. I loved all of the challenges my mentor gave me and I enjoyed going to work everyday!

What I wish was different

I wish the structure of the internship was more fluid, it was really easy to not follow the intern plan because the store would get so busy.

Advice

Target is an amazing company to work for and they truly care about their staff. With a high retention rate after the internship, it was nice to know I had a full-time job offer after college.
