    I worked at Target full-time

    Pros

    I worked at two locations; each in a different state. My first location in California was awesome; I was recognized for my work (very easy in my opinion and time flies if you try to genuinely enjoy it) and i’m introverted but my coworkers there were super friendly and welcoming; I always felt comfortable. Everyone helped out eachother and a routine was established that made work more easy. Wish i never relocated because the management was amazing. I was called in so many times for work during the holdiays (workers tend to flake or quit around that time due to a vacation request that is typically very late) but I enjoyed showing up to work everyday.

    Cons

    The second location I worked at was in Oregon. The store was twice as small as the one I had previously worked at and I should’ve known the place was a bad idea after the HR (whom contacted me about my resume+application) was suprised to hear i’ve previously worked for Target. Everyone working there was old and acted higher than you (even though Target is a bit tad higher than minimum wage job) and they were always so negative about other customers even though what was “busy” to them would be considered a “slow and peaceful” day in the California store. There was no system in how the department was ran so the work was more complicated for everyone than it should be. Everyone kind of ignores each other’s presence and it seems no one was actually friendly with eachother or willing to get to know eachother. Hours sucked too; what’s the point of hiring for a full time position if you’re only going to give me 5 hours a week? So many things done here were so unnecessary. Only decent person I met here was the store manager who was super enthusiastic about everything— too bad everyone else was so negative and hateful about their “sUPer hard and sTressfUl” minimum wage job though.

    Advice to Management

    Please focus more on reviewing the management such as the HR and work environment. Oh, and the new system kind of sucks? I think it would be best to go back to calling everyone team members instead of style consultants, etcetc.
