Feeling discouraged

I was let go from a company in early July after misaligning with management (last day was agreed on in June). I was given too many tasks to do and when I politely asked to delegate tasks to other people, my manager was really rude about it and said she could no longer guarantee a set amount of hours on my contract.

Fast forward, I am now working a seasonal job at Target to pay the bills and I am feeling really defeated. I have been applying to…

The ATS could be stopping you!!

Feeling frustrated because you applied to a TON of jobs and you still aren’t hearing back???

The problem could be that your resume is missing some important information!

If a company uses what’s called a applicant tracking system or ATS, your resume will go through a screening process. If it’s missing certain elements it will be pushed aside and not viewed by that particular company.

So, let’s look at some tips on how to use keywords to update…

I am like a magic elf!

I work hard all through the night at Target while you sleep to put your favorite products on the shelves. Unlike an elf I don't have magical powers so I usually have to climb and descend ladders pretty often and lift heavy things that we stage to be put up on the shelves. My work schedule is consistent but also flexible when I need it to be. I make $12 an hour here. My wife likes that we get a discount too. Good job for the last 5 months for…

Always getting the job I did not want in retail.

While working in retail I always got the bottom of the barrel jobs like moving pallets and stocking in the early morning or working the second or third shift which was the straighten the store shelves. But did not get the change to use my other skills like price unit scanning, price changes. It was always the heavy jobs that no one would do even to the point of unloading the trucks in Big Lots for 3 months and a couple of times at Walmart. and at…

My advice to people interested in working at #Target as a #SalesAssociate ...

Don't. Management does not care about you whatsoever ever. They push you to do more than possible and get upset when you don't get it done. I am a very motivated and dedicated hard worker and I have never been one to slack off at work or work slowly but nothing was ever enough. Management is absoloutly rude and there is no room for you to move up. I know many co-workers who and worked for Target for 5+ years and never had an opportunity to move…

You need to have patience

Working retail can be tough. Customers get angry, frustrated, and can easily take it out on you or each other. When I worked at Target I was lucky because I had great managers and co-workers who would come to your rescue if need be. Teamwork is something that I liked there. One day I had two parents come to my register with some kind of toy that both their kids wanted. One tells me he needs it for his kid's birthday and the other one says that…

What works on the job - works at home - well done
