Ill keep this as short as possible so as to not bore you with unnecessary details. I am currently 26, and a junior in college. I have been working with Target since June of 2008. I was cart attendant for 2 years and guest service since then. They also trained me in cash office during the summer, and I have had intermittent hardlines shifts here and there since the beginning. It is worth noting that I was foolish enough to take on extra responsibilities without extra pay, so now I am essentially a fake GSA who has to cover GSTL lunches and breaks (and even shifts sometimes) , all without the proper title, paygrade, or being able to actually say on a resume that I supervised, not to mention they refuse to give me an override code. You can imagine how very pleased I was when a gstl and two gsas quit within a three week span so then they made the innately intuitive decision to promote two cashiers that were barely past their 90 days and a transfer who was instocks beforehand (this was my fourth pass over). And of course, they have steadfastly refused to remove me from the front end or transfer me to a different target, I have attempted over the years to gain employment at marginally better (paywise) retail/wholesalers such as Aldi, Costco and Trader Joes. I have landed at least one interview at each of these establishments and have had no success. My people skills are okay and I give good intellectual answers, but my brain insists on going into stuttering fool mode whenever an interview commences and my merits have been drowned out and I am forced to live in squalor and poverty. My whole family hates me now and I am unwelcome on holiday visits due to my income. I should graduate by the end of 2015 with my Bachelors. I dont care too much about what happens AFTER that because at least my family wont hate me then, but I am worried that I will fired before then and I need to remain employed to finish up with college. I make about a $1.50 an hour more per hour than a new TM would (due to decent reviews) and I am worried that they will get rid of me because of that. And even in a world where experience is literally everything I cant get other retail work for whatever inexplicable reason. I cant go to work in fast food either. I always interview really well for fast food but It's always implied that they dont hire me because they would have to cut me to minimum wage and they are worried that ill leave soon after I get hired. I feel like I am at a point where I have worked at one place "too long" and that people looking at my resume have assumed I am either a pothead or a sloth with no ambition and I just get binned. Also, I cant join the armed Forces because I cant do pull-ups for some reason (my 95 on the ASVAB apparently counted for nothing) Sorry if it sounds like a melodramatic soliloquy. I assure you Im not a negative person, and I am always humble. I cant figure out how so many people can regularly leave target regularly... It's not so bad, having a job is better than no job by far, and I can take it for another 2 years, I just want to know what my options are If i get canned and how i can explain the long tenure at target to judgmental interviewers. If you made it this far, congratulations. Thank you for listening and I appreciate any insight.
