Pros: commitment to fair wages, breaks, great team involvement and team building, weekly events providing food, prizes
Cons: management disconnect, low morale, low hours
Target was my first job, and I have been with the company for years, at two different locations (albeit with a leave of absence for schooling), and it was a company that for a while, I had been very proud to work at, it was only when morale started slipping and as a manager I was only given 20 hours a week that I had to leave the company. As a guest service attendant, the manager/supervisor of the front lanes, my day consisted of prepping registers for the day's sales, or shutting them down, organizing the cashiers and support team members for things like breaks, locations, etc, and the biggest part of the job, making sure that everything was a good experience -for guests - the customers. The team of GSA's was very close knit, although at times it was felt that upper management didn't always communicate effectively with us, regardless of the fact the the front end was the first and last thing a guest would see. I always enjoyed working with my team and directing them towards profitability, and always liked interacting with guests, be it positive, or solving problems in negative situations.
