For me, there was a job fair. I went through a introduction with my interviewer, clarified my information, then he proceeded to ask me questions about myself, which I answered quite flawlessly. Then he asked me about situational questions which was not work related surprisingly. It was more of what I have I done to influence a situation in my life. I was hired on the spot and he praised me for being the most enthusiastic interviewee he's ever had. I'm a senior in high school, still a minor, but I'm ecstatic to work at Target.

I did not want to leave Target. I was actually terminated because of the lack of training (mostly) and communication. In my honest opinion, I was literally the BEST employee they have ever had. I picked up a lot of shifts and came in whenever they called me. Anyway, the reason I was fired was because I was trying to stop a "guest" from stealing. I had no clue that we were not allowed to do unless we were verified. With no warnings, the LOD brought me into the office and had to give my name tag and discount card back. The hurtful part was that I came in for an eight-hour shift they were asking me to take and got fired within the three hours of that shift. Embarrassing!!!

The leaders should speak with the people above them about finding a process that works for everybody. They constantly change the ways we do our work and it doesn't always work for everyone. Some people will say something about it and the leaders will make it seem as if they're actually taking what's been said into consideration but months later nothing has really changed. I believe if each store had it's own process that worked well for all of its employees, the workers would probably not complain so much.

Hours are flexible. usually they'll work with you. however, don't expect much in the new era of "modernization" at target. it'll vary from store to store. if you're lucky, you'll get what works for you, and you'll keep it. if you're not lucky, you'll be told "40 hours are no problem" and then get cut to part-time, despite perfect attendance, trained in everything, etc. people work every day just to get 30 hours, if that. this happens.
