    New cashier help

    I'm new and a couple problems I keep running into are the gift cards where you buy 3 items receive a $5 gift card. I have customers who say they should have earned one or more but I did not receive prompt to scan one. How do resolve? Do I just tell them they don't qualify for it?

    Ap q

    Yo so today I rung up an employee for about 2 dollars worth of candy. I noticed he was acting strange and nervous, but didn’t think of much at the time. After a long shift today, I came home and realized that was extremely shady, the guy had a backpack. My next shift is in 3 days so I will talk...

    Guest today told me he was a "secret shopper". Is this legit?

    So I have only 5 more working days in target until I quit for good. Well tonight I got called multiple times for backup. So, I was giving a man change for his purchased items and I ran out of cash in the drawer. I called the GSTL and she was getting more money for me. This man in line told me...

    Cashiers/Guest Service: what is your store's policy?

    When it comes to guests clearly using SOMEONE ELSE's driver's license, what does your store have you do? Here are some examples: 1) She's clearly under 18 and wearing her middle school uniform and using an ID where the woman in the picture KIND OF looks like her (perhaps an older relative) but...

    Hey! so I just have a quick question. So a guest had gift cards and also wanted to pay with their cartwheel app since their card was on it. How do I process that?

    New employee, a few questions.

    First of all, DEAR GOD I am so glad to be getting a job. It's been rough. I went in for a cashier position and was offered to interview tomorrow for what I think I'm reading here is GSTL. The way the position was described to me would be managing checkouts, self checkout, guest services, etc...

    Does your store still rate cashiers on the G-R system?

    Some time back our new GE (now S&E) ETL said the G-R and speed ratings were no longer enforced as the company wanted better guest service and better presentation of RCs with guests. We haven't received those weekly speed and G-R reviews with our TLs in a long time. The G-R and speed ratings...

    Does your store expect cashiers to use their own smartphones when Zebras aren't available?

    Our store is seriously lacking in Zebras. Our leaders are encouraging "guest advocates" (cashiers) to use our own personal smartphones to look up things for guests on and on the Target App much like we would using a store-provided Zebra. Is this now expected? Are some TMs being...

    Age-Restricted ID check - alcohol, cold medicine

    When a guest wants to buy age-restricted items, does your store require that you have the guest's ID in your hand, then either scan or hand-key the birthdate? Does your store require that every age-restricted buying guest provide their ID regardless of how old they appear? My impression is...

    First week as a cashier

    So this week was my first working at Target. It was a little rocky to say the least. They knew it was my first job. They had me watch someone the first day of training for about 15 minutes.

    Hey all! So I'm a new Guest Service Team Member (but let's just call it a "cashier" for my own sanity). I had some cashiering questions that I've been wanting to ask... I appreciate the help in advance! 1. Do I need to report to my GSTL when I start my shift? Or can I just jump on any register...
