EXECUTIVE TEAM LEADER (Current Employee) – Napa, CA – 25 July 2015
Good corporation that gives young and eager professionals a great opportunity to gain management experience. This allows the management to become familiar with customer service, working in a team atmosphere, as well as a a lot of potential to promote within the company if performing well. At times the job can be very demanding and can limit the work life balance, however that is expected for anyone working in retail management. Overall, a fun and supportive team work environment.
Cashier, Backroom, Instocks (Former Employee) – Fayetteville, GA – 20 March 2015
Your average day at this company consists of a very comfortable environment with caring leaders and team. The hardest part of working here is the pay. No matter what you know how to do, you will still be making the same amount of money as your co worker who knows one area.
It is a fun place to work and taught me a lot over the last 15 years
Senior Team Leader (Target) (Former Employee) – Rockford Illinois – 31 December 2014
A typical day for me at Target with this job depending what my shift was for the day. When I was LOD (Leader on duty), I ran the store for the shift which you made the decisions for the day and if I was not LOD I worked in my department and ensured that my daily tasks were completed. I had to think strategically when I was in both areas to ensure that all the tasks were completed and done correctly. The hardest part of this job was keeping and equal balance between running the store and keeping my departments green at all times. The most enjoyable part of my job was the team since I had worked with them for so many years, we were a family. The guest were also enjoyable since you were helping to create memories for them when they came into to locate something specifically.
Typical day is to go into the store. Go up to a teamleader or owner of the building to find out what needs to be done that I am able to work on. I learned that everyday is a new day. everyday has a new challenge that needs to be accomplish in-order for a business and customers relationship stay strong. Co-workers are your best friend they are in the same situation you are in. We must help each other in-order to help our guests meet their needs and wants. By doing so they company makes more money, which later on the employees get better salary or benefits down the road. The hardest part of the job is to make every guest happy. You get those who leaves the store very happy and there is those who walk out unhappy which sometime ends up losing a customer. The most enjoyable part is to help guests find what they need and or want and to work well with other employees. By doing so working at the store you work at becomes more easier to work in.
working with guests, having multiple breaks.
giving a co-worker more tasks than he or she can handle.
HARDLINES ASSOCIATE - TARGET (Current Employee) – stockton, ca – 6 December 2013
job at target is fun and reasonable. the people are nice although the management constantly changes, the store has gone through 4 store managers in the past 3 years. the hardest part of your job is making sure all the guests you interact with is happy and satisfied. which is not hard at all. sometimes the expectations of the number of tasks the store leaders want you to complete on your job are far too demanding considering how much your paid, bottom tier.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Morgan Hill, Ca – 9 February 2013
Terrible hours, lousy employers, would not recommend to anyone. Executives sit in office and play around on facebook, while you are stuck taking care of customers, cleaning messes, all while being told youre inefficient
Night Stocker (Former Employee) – Weslaco, TX – 20 November 2012
Everyday at work, i started by cleaning up my area to begin stocking. i assisted customers as well and returned to original duty. Working as salesfloor, I learned that the busier you are, the better you feel at the end of the day. My co-workers were also very busy and kept busy during their tasks. The hardest part of the job was unloading and pulling pallets from trailers. The most enjoyable part of my work was that me staying busy made a 12 hour shift seem like part time.
