Retail Stocker

I enjoy taking personal pride in seeing that my department looks good for the guests and helping people with finding things throughout the store. Interacting with the guests and my coworkers is what makes my job rewarding to me.

What I wish was different

I wish that I was paid more per hour than I currently do seeing that Target is one of the biggest companies in the world.

Advice

Just to take problems on with a smile, there is always going to be someone or something that is going to upset you almost on a daily basis, I would recommend to just take things as they happen and not to let setbacks upset you and just move on to solve the problem or to brush off whatever someone did or said to you that was upsetting.

Style Consultant

May - August 2019 • Baltimore, MD

What I liked

When working at Target, I really enjoyed meeting a lot of new people and learning about retail. Target was my first retail job, it was always very busy and there was always something to do. Mainly just cleaning, organizing and leading customers in the right direction! Lastly, there is nothing better than receiving your own money, that you worked for. That was a big highlight for me.

Beauty Consultant

June - August 2019 • Southington, CT

What I liked

-Working with beauty products and being able to give out free sampling -Receiving monthly gratis to try out new products -Employee discount (10%) -Pay was more than minimum wage ($13/hr)

What I wish was different

-I wish the employee discount was more than 10% off. It also should be used with any type of payment method (ie. you can only use cash, Target Redcard, Checks with the discount. No debit/credit cards) -They give you 18 days to request time off. If you do it later (like a regular two weeks), it won't be eligible -I wish you could access you Target portal at home to request time off, not have to wait to do it in store -The 90 day "trial period" for new employees makes it hard for college students who may want to continue working at another location near their university, or for when they want to return in the future. Instead of transferring, you have to quit your job, then re-apply, then quit again, etc.

Advice

If you want to work at Target for the summer, make sure to apply as early as possible so you can try to get all 90 days in. hat way, you can transfer to another store instead of quitting at the one you have and then having to re-apply.

May 2014 • Kansas City, KS

What I liked

Flexible scheduling so that I could focus on school.

What I wish was different

More training before starting.

Advice

They're more picky with new hires at the beginning of the year. The best time to apply is at the beginning and end of the summer. That way you have the job down by the time holiday season comes around.
