Executive Team Leader Intern

July - August 2020 • Foothill Ranch, CA

What I liked

Great team and mentors, everyone was really invested in my success.

What I wish was different

I wish I had been able to get the full 10 week experience. It was shortened to 6 weeks due to Covid.

Advice

Everyone gave me the same advice: make the experience yours. In other words, if I wanted to have a good experience and learn something, I needed to ask questions and volunteer for things and put myself out there.

Style Consultant

April 2020 • Chandler, AZ

What I liked

I loved everyone on my team! They were all incredibly kind, hardworking, and willing to lend a hand when needed.

What I wish was different

I wish our staffing situation would have been different. The store was almost always understaffed at the check-lanes and in the style department.

Advice

If you feel like you are having a hard time getting your work done for some reason (lack of staffing or other), say something to your team lead! They will almost always help you get it done.

Barista

August - November 2020 • New York City, NY

What I liked

The job itself was great the coworkers were great to work with too

What I wish was different

The location made it hard to commute there and the employee benefits and conditions weren't the best. We had to use the same bathrooms as customers often times and they were almost always dirty and smelled. The 20% discount could only be applied if you paid with cash, a target credit card, or a gift card and I don't think its right that you can't get it with your bank card. It seemed as though Target was more interested in getting people to sign up for their credit cards rather than give the employees a discount.

Advice

Working for big corporations almost always is terrible, they care more about their money rather than the lives and conditions of their employees.

June 2018 • Dardenne, MO

What I liked

I appreciate the fun and friendly atmosphere of my Target! It is a pleasure to work with my team and the management has always been easy to work with. The job pays well and I have made great memories with my friends here!

What I wish was different

I wish that I would have spent more time working over my Summers there. I would often cut my hours short by limiting my time, but it is important to try to accumulate funds over the Summer to help pay for the school year. Try to make the most of your Summers by working and accumulating a savings.

Advice

Positivity is key with any new job. Do not allow a poor attitude to get in the way of an experience.

What I liked

My boss was very kind and understanding. The work was difficult enough to keep me entertained, but not overly so.

What I wish was different

I wish I had more hours over the summer.

Advice

Apply for a seasonal position first as you have a better chance of getting a job. Then if you are a good match you can keep working for them after the season.
