Pros

I find it most rewarding to work with my team. I really enjoy working in a team atmosphere and collaborating with my peers to solve problems and run the best store possible. Another part of working in a team I enjoy is mentoring my peers and team members and seeing them grow professionally and even promote.

Cons

I really enjoy Target as a company and the team I work with but I really would love to be able to have more HR duties and to work for a company that has more of a focus on well-being and health.

Job Duties

I have many human resources duties in my position. I assist with the hiring and onboarding process by interviewing and assessing talent of new hires and team members who are promoting. I also continually follow-up on the training of new and existing team members and ensure that I do check-in for our new team members to ensure that they had a great on-boarding experience and to see if they need any additional help. I also must manage the performance of my team by ensuring I am coaching them and giving them recognition and following up on any concerns they my have. I do a lot to drive the engagement at my store by communicating with the team and getting feedback on what we could do better and then communicating that with my peers. I also was able to support the human resources executive position at my store while that manager was away and helped follow up on more specific human resources duties such as rolling out our benefits during our enrollment period and helping find answers to HR questions that our team was having.

Summary

My time with Target was very valuable. I was able to grow my skills as a leader and to learn many valuable skills that will help me be successful in a human resources position. Most of all, my time at Target has taught me to be confident in my skills and how I can utilize my strengths to leverage my opportunities.

Cons

I primarily worked in an area of the store that required independent work. I loved it because it gave me a large amount of personal responsibility for my work and success. The down side is that it was difficult for me to get communication as to the rest of the store. In two years I caught only a handful of part of the daily store meetings. As a result I missed a lot of information that would have been helpful for me to know. I sought out that information as much as I could but in communication regarding the store my position was a bit isolated.

Pros

For me some of the most rewarding moments include helping guests find what they need at a good price. I enjoy not only helping people find shoes for all occasions but if they are able to save some I think that is an excellent perk. I also many days am able to refer them to other locations if we are out of stock or online showing them one location isn't the only option to find the shoes they desire. So for me customer interaction and seeing how happy my help can make some people is what I find most rewarding about working at Target, something that I feel will be a transferable skill if I work at DSW.

Why you left

To pursue a new career that allows me to utilize my sales skills more in depth and experience work in a new atmosphere and company.

How did this career prepare you?

My time at Target has prepared me well. I have managed the shoe department at my location for the last 7 months. I have seen sales growth in all areas including childrens, womens, mens and seasonal footwear since taking over. I am currently trending to have contributed to 1.5 percent of the store sales for the year which equals about $630,000 in sales volume. Aside from making sales goals I have also dealt with many different ways to maintain my department. This includes merchandising, remerchandising and giving good direction to other employees when I am off. I have trained many employees throughout the year. Also relative to the rewards program DSW offers I have helped many people learn to use our apps for Target as well as apply for store credit and debit cards. All of these various roles would help me in a new career at DSW.

Rate your managers

My relationship is excellent with my fellow managers. We are able to team up and accomplish ideas as well as offer great communication when we will not see each other for a few days. I respect my managers view points and try to always see things from that perspective if an idea doesn't necessarily line up with my own thinking. Overall my relationship with my managers at Target has been great.

Suggestions for the CEO

I have challenged management on several occasions and usually try to do it by explaining how I think a certain process could be improved. I am more then willing to continue doing things how the company but have been allowed to have much freedom with making my own decisions while at Target. One example that comes to mind is when we reset aisles in shoes if we don't have much product on hand instead of leaving it empty I am allowed to put something else in its place until we recieve it this allows for the shoes to continue selling based on what I put there instead of leaving an area empty.

Pros

I found working at target really rewarded me with the ability to make others happy in simple ways such as going the extra step to see if we can deliver them on their needs and just being friendly and happy.

Cons

One thing I disliked was having such a huge store with many employees, sometimes I would not have the equipment I needed.

Job Duties

My job duties are to maintain a clean safe work area, provide great guest service, stock shelves and be available for cash back up when needed. I also was cross trained to help in other parts of the store on my own bases.

Suggestions for the CEO

This is little corny but i like my pahrmacy to be clean. When ever it was possible I would vacuum.

How did this career prepare you?

My time at Target has provided me a lot of experiences as to what a pharmacist has to do on a daily basis.

Pros

For me what is most rewarding is helping customers find what they need. There is nothing better for me then having someone come in and tell me they have been looking for an item and me being able to have it in stock for them. I also enjoy being able to save them money using various apps, coupons and sales. Getting a customer what they want while helping them save makes me feel good about the work I am doing.

Why you left

I am interested in leaving Target to start a new career that follows my life passions more so. DSW can offer me that with a wider selection of products being sold that I am interested in along with giving me freedom to express myself through fashion on a daily basis. I am also interested in taking a chance on a company that has a more selective demographic and seeing how I can postively impact a store location.

How did this career prepare you?

Specifically my Shoe department responsibilities have prepared me more than anything else in the store. I understand what goes into maintaining presentation of a shoe department, how to measure and drive sales as well as giving customers a great experience. On a daily basis I work with and manage other employees while completing my tasks. Being in this industry for over 8 years has given me an excellent background in retail and really helped me prepare for a position like this one.

Rate your managers

My relationship with my managers has always been very good. I really do enjoy working with many different people and using teamwork to get a job done. I have met many great managers while working for target and they have helped me advance to this point. I also have always appreciated their trust in me and my ideas to run my own departments within the store.

Suggestions for the CEO

I have had this come up many times with me making suggestions for my department about processes and ways to drive sales. One specific example includes when I am resetting an area if we don't have a lot of product on hand I am able to get another shoe out of the backroom and fill empty sections with that. This keeps my department looking full and impactful and easy to swap out once more of the other product comes in.

Advancement opportunities

I have had advancement opportunities at Target and accepted them. Working at several different locations I have had the ability to promote and taken the opportunity. This has allowed me to have a better understanding of how the store runs on a daily basis and especially how that impacts my own department.
