    Archived 10% Employee Discount....Eligible Family Members

    If I had a dollar for every time I've had to have this convo, I could retire from target and do any number of things that don't involve Target yet to involve large sums of money and tropical locales ( Belize notwithstanding, of course ).

    Archived Tell me I'm not the only one! No hours, no explanation.

I told you it was silly. ) That said, are there any folks in any of the many depts. in which you're...

    To that one guest

    Well, it's not so much a right as a reason and/or explanation, and it may even deserve its own thread in certain areas: Guess Who's Shopping Under The Influence Today....? ( Insert ironically peppy music and perhaps a late-nite celebrity type such as Letterman, and you're good to go... )

    As I'm not too well versed in signage procedures that's another story for another time, HOWEVER... The understaffing. Yeah. In a world in which everyone would SEEM to be an informed consumer ( another story for another time ) and 98% of the population seems to have some kind of smartphone or...

    Archived Resume

    Also, even though it may seem counterintuitive, if you have any places in mind that you think you either might like to work at for whatever reason or have the right qualifications for, go ahead and apply with them, online or in person ( in the extremely unlikely event that anyone still does that...

    To that one Team Member I - ARCHIVED

    To the team members and leaders who keep calling by the names of various team members who appear to share my race and/or ethnicity: SERIOUSLY. REALLY? Look, some of you are fairly new, some of you don't see me very often at all, and some of you are honestly just horrible at remembering or...

    Archived Gross Stories

    My first month on the job a little boy pulled down his pants and unceremoniously pooped in the accessories section. Also I have had the chance to bear witness to such atrocities of hygiene and sanitation as guests wiping their noses on dresses on the clearance racks, and testing out the...

    Archived Those special guests

    ha! Reminds of a customer from years ago at the video store-borderline completely blind, a real talkaholic, and as sour and bitter as a bag of lemons rolled in salt... One day when I'd finally just had it with him ( and life in general ), i got really quite testy with him. He went on to ask me...

    As many have stated already, I agree-since you're not likely ( and not at all encouraged or recommended ) to be runnign around putting people into headlocks and all that sort of thing, if you're not exactly a body double for dwayne johnson, it's not the end of the world. it is so much more about...

    Seems that way, doesn't it? well, the kind of psychological gymnastics that take place in that scenario are more than I can explain in my current state of undereducation and excessive inebreation but I will say that it took me MORE THAN TWO YEARS to be so-called "properly cross-trained"...

    Sorry to hear about your experience, SomewhatStarving.... Even when you come from a background of other customer service or retail type environments it can be hard to suss out what is really truly expected of you and how it is in your best interest to work, speak, behave, etc...especially when...

    Archived Someone tried to quick-change scam me today

    Keep your cool, count the change back, never agree to make change for a bunch of different bills that don't factor into the transaction equation, and... All else failing, you can always politely, discreetly, and with the ( ahem ) ultimate of guest service in mind, call for backup. Trainers...
