HR

June - August 2021 • Honolulu, HI

What I liked

I enjoyed that my position was very flexible in terms of how everyday was different. Rather than being confined in an office doing paperwork and answering phones, I could also be on the sales floor at a cash register, or doing restock in the back.

What I wish was different

One thing that I did not anticipate when I was offered the position was the amount of janitorial work that was required including cleaning out fridges in the break room, vacuuming, sweeping, and even restocking and tidying bathrooms. While I don't mind cleaning, it was unexpected and sometimes frustrating. I do wish I had known these were part of my responsibilities before accepting the job offer.

Advice

When I applied, I was expecting that it would be very strict, however the work environment is very welcoming and almost like a family. I would encourage those who want to apply to come with an open mind and feel comfortable. There are a lot of different positions that Target offers so be sure to explore your options.

Guest Advocate

May - August 2021 • Apple Valley, MN

What I liked

The pay was certainly a big plus. The building was generally tidy and harbored an accepting environment for the customers.

What I wish was different

The staff wasn't particularly lenient to the idea that everyone has off days sometimes, and just can't find a way to enjoy being at work (or anywhere) that day. Forcing a smile on your face 24/7 is quite exhausting for someone like me who is naturally introverted, and no one seemed to get that. It was seclusive being someone who just couldn't emotionally handle pretending to be overly happy all the time. I realized too late that this was not the job for me.

Advice

Extroversion is key in the enjoyment of this job. If you are not extroverted, I highly recommend you reconsider your choices because depending on your proclivities, it can get tiresome very quickly.
