Cashier

May - August 2019 • Braintree, MA

What I liked

I enjoyed working. Working is a good way to fill time in the summer. What am I going to be doing other than working? Environment was social enough, and I naturally liked the values of keeping everything looking tidy and being nice to the customer.

What I wish was different

Sometimes I got closing shifts into opening shifts. Those were a bit of a pain, as I'd get home and go to sleep only to wake up to go back to work, but they didn't happen often.

Advice

Target is a good job, and I feel they're likely to hire you if you want a job.

Team Member

April 2017 • Dallas, TX

What I liked

I enjoyed working in a team and having an opportunity to grow within the business. I have moved from being a cashier to an electronics specialist in under two years. As an electronics specialist, I have the pleasure of assisting guests in making decisions in relation to identifying which products will benefit them the most.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have begun training within the tech department earlier in the year. I was given the opportunity to learn through experience, but only recently have I learned that training offered by the business can fill in the knowledge gaps.

Advice

Take advantage of your resources provided to you by the business. The business and the employee must have a working relationship where both parties invest in one another.
