Target will hire “seasonal” employees with the promise that with hard work and good effort toward customer satisfaction they will hire you on as a full time employee. See the lure to bring in “seasonal” employees is with above minimum wage and this promise all the while they have already filled employees who are at minimum wage in those positions. So at the end of your contract they always find a reason to let you go and bring in another batch of “seasonal” employees thus keeping down their need to provide benefits to employees which would cost Target profits. Not to mention how back breaking the work is to begin with. You have to constantly move boxes from the back room to your aisle of responsibility, unpack items, sort them and make the aisles pretty and return customer items to aisles all day. The store aisles aren’t small and some of the items can weigh a ton. Believe me when I say they expect perfection. Oh, and when you have to take excess items to the back room for storage you have to carry it up a 30 foot ladder, often very heavy objects, to shove them into near nonexistent spots for storage which only slows you down even more. All this while smiling and having to stop and ask every customer if they can find everything they need. The job is he!! and this coming from a woman who was in the Army.
Above minimum wage for a seasonal job
Everything but the pay for a part time seasonal job
