    My First Job

    Okay, so I graduated high school early and thought, “I shop at target all the time, so why not work there?” ┬áThe first job interview I had, they had me wait for an hour and during the time two employees asked me if I was sure I wanted to work there. When they actually conducted my interview, I had to leave because I had other plans. They called me back and did the interview again, this time someone at Starbucks mentioned how horrible management at target is. I was called in AGAIN so they could offer me a position. Instead, they just threw me in soft lines when I had put in my application I wanted starbucks. During orientation the woman spent so much time talking about an app that she skipped the lunch break and half the things in the handbook. Plus, she kept us over two hours late. The next day, I was supposed to train with someone and she already went home. They messed up on two schedules for me and had to give me a new one. People kept forgetting about me so I went from fitting room, to grocery, to carts, and back. They worked me right up until my class (which they knew about) and I have to go in today and do it again. I’ve already been there a few days and I can tell the management sucks.

    Only my second day and i’m already stressed!

    So, I started working at Target in the softlines section yesterday. I am working seasonal. This is my first job EVER. I’ve never had previous cash register experience or retail experience at all. Yesterday, I was only trained on the register for about an hour and a half-2 hours. I think I got the hang of using the register, but i’m definitely not perfect yet! I’m pretty slow. Today was my second day and I was being trained in the softlines section. First of all, I feel like everything has been so unorganized. My originally-designated trainer didn’t even know she was supposed to be training me! So a team leader just chose a random worker from softlines to train me. Then a manager found me while my trainer was away at one point, and asked me to backup on the cash registers but I couldn’t do it because I wasn’t even “in the system” yet.
