My co-worker are hard working team member who work hard to achieve the daily, monthly and yearly goals. We all use each other as resources and bounce ideas.
The hardest part of my job is there are times when there is not enough time or resources to get the job done in a timely manner.
The most enjoyable aspect of my job is working with great people and being able to help development new talant – less
Great coworkers, terrible pay, very corporate-driven
Food Service Attendant-Target (Former Employee), Rockwall, TX – December 16, 2012
The pay was so little, I'm surprised more of my coworkers who had families weren't on food stamps. It almost disgusts me how Target donates huge amounts of money to charities but has employees who can barely make ends meet because of their low wages. My store manager was wonderful and my immediate supervisor was as well, but that wasn't enough reason – more... for me to stay. They definitely expect you to do the jobs of three people for close to minimum wage pay. I suppose that's what keeps them in business. Employees were expendable to the company and they made that clear on a day to day basis. HR was a joke here as well. Half the time, the HR person was the one you wanted to make a complaint about! I do not recommend anyone working here unless they are really desperate for money between jobs. Don't contribute a lot of time and energy here-you will not be rewarded. – less
Sales Floor (Former Employee), Bolingbrook, IL – April 19, 2012
When working at the front end of the store cashiering, my job is to leave the last impression on our guest to ensure that they will come back. Other duties I have had is to work on the sales floor and at customer service. At my job I do not like a slow pace therefor I took the initiative to teach myself other jobs throughout the store such as, sales – more... floor and customer service – less
Server (Former Employee), Grand Rapids, MI – April 11, 2012
Pros: face to face interactions, social atmosphere
Cons: short shifts and advancement opportunities.
I enjoyed working here however the shifts were for a few hours and the numbers were not hard to meet. I learned how to deal with customers a bit differently with having to deal with them face to face. I worked alone but my manager and supervisors were great and able to help you work out any complications that may have arrived. Hardest part of this position – more... I wouldn't say there were any as the job is very easy to accomplish. I enjoyed working alone it helped you get the sales quota. – less
Pretty good company overall but the demands of mgmt. are a little overboard.
Sous Chef-Catering (Current Employee), Washington, DC – March 31, 2012
Pros: work hours
The most enjoyable part of the job is the fact that I'm cooking. The catering dept. is the money making part of the operation. The turnover is quite high in mgmt. and that makes it harder to get into a rhythm. Five executive chefs,three GM's,three catering chefs. This is a tough enviroment to work. My co-workers have remained the same and we are the – more... consumate team. – less
Guest Services Representative (Former Employee), Vernon, BC – September 25, 2012
Pros: cheap accomodation and a great season of new experieces.
Cons: work was quite sporadic and poorly paid.
I thoroughly enjoyed this, it was the attraction that initially brought me to Canada. I learned lots of things about how a ski resort works and built a lot of strong relationships with co workers. As the workers are mostly seasonal and on temporary visas, job roles didn't have a lot of responsibility or didn't have the opportunity to grow. Overall, – more... a lot of fun. – less
