    Got a call from Target today. I had applied last week and today I got a call about coming in for an interview. Got it set up for tomorrow at 6PM. Wish me luck. Hope I can be a red shirt.

    Good Luck. I worked at Target for 7 years. Some great times but some horrible times as well.

    If its a bigger store things should be great. I worked at a small, low volume store so we didn't have the payroll hours. The workload was just pushed on you until you broke.

    Not sure. Possibly a cashier or floor person... hope it is floor. I enjoy walking around and not getting stuck in one spot for hours on end.

    I'm different. I love cashiering. If I could be a cashier at Target, I'd be happy.

    Remember good interview practice, like not eyeing up any attractive women that might be on the panel.

    For once, i'm not actually joking.

    Congrats on the job... welcome to hating the shallow end of the gene pool.

    I used to work at Home Depot and I can honestly say I will not go back to retail unless I really, really, really have to. Great learning experience in how to deal with people, but just crappy work.

    At least it is Target and not Wal-Mart. I would choose target over wally world any day, I tend to do the same with my shopping. Super Target is like shopping at Super Wal-Mart, without the embarrassment of shopping at Super-Walmart.

    actually Wal-Mart payed better as base pay than Target does.

    $6.25 at Target
    $7.25 at Wal-Mart (plus since it was third I got an additional $1, but I didn't count that)

    I think I work the floor.. so I am happy I won't be stuck behind a register all day.

    interesting about the money difference...i wonder if target does quicker raises? and i bet if you work hard enough, and your manager notices, youll stick around after christmas if you desire....and yeah, target is way less evil...i freakin hate walmart...only thing i like about walmart is that its open 24/7....if target did that, i could be happy with no walmarts ever...hell, i could just do that now i guess....and not go shopping at 2am...

    Cost of living must be great where you live, If you dont make atleast $25/hr+ you better find a few people to live with not to mention a 1 bedroom apt is $1300/mo I envy you guys.
