it depends what store you work at
I started off at a low volume store I got along with everyone. They cross trained me in every single department so I did get more hours when people called out because I would know the area. the only thing was one week u would have a good schedule and the next week like 2 days.
after a year I transferred to a store that was high volume…BIG DIFFERENCE. they had more security there way more employees and I felt like you could get lost because a lot of the TL there didn’t know who you were even months later. I still got along with everyone there. They don’t cross train there so they always forgot I knew every single area. They forgot about me a lot LOL I ended up switching over to food ave, I did that at the low volume store. WELL.. around the holidays they literally had nobody closing with me and it was target café/pizza hut and they would say I had to make sure I didn’t hit OT, so I would leave by a certain time and than the next day get in trouble for not finishing everything for closing, yet I explained I was going to hit OT and that its Christmas time and they had me alone for the last 4 hours trying to do all the food, make pizzas, prepare pizza for the next day, do dishes, clean lobby area AND ring up customers all while remembering to do my temp logs and stock things… ahhhhhhhhhhh I ended up quiting right after Christmas with no notice. It was too stressful and they refused to put more closers back there. 2 weeks later I had a miscarriage.
I would rather be at a low volume store where they have their shit together than a high volume where they have too much going on they cant handle it. I am currently trying to be rehired at a different store even though im sure they put me down as NON rehireable. but I had my reasons to leave. But I did love working for target for the 18 months, just wish bigger stores were more organized
