    I initially was employed by Target as a seasonal team member in softlines and occasionally cashiering. I got the interview and job just by walking in and handing them my application, they were desperate for employees. It was my first job ever so I was a little nervous to begin working in such a hectic atmosphere. My first shift was cashiering on a busy saturday before halloween. They did the whole “training” process with me, which was basically handing me a booklet and telling me to “figure it out”. After sitting at the training cash register for 30 minutes, I was told by my LOD to try it out for real. He assured me he would shadow me and help me out. Sounds good right? Well, after I checked out my first guest I look behind me and he took off! I was stuck there with no training on how to get the damn security cases of the video games. I didn’t know anyone there so I just preyed them open with my bare hands. I had no clue what red cards were, but they forced me to try to sell them. One guest spilled bleach all over the belt and I was yelled at for it, on my first day, with no training on handling chemicals.
