school is out & new graduates are here

Right now is my favorite time of year!  We are on-boarding new graduates and interns in every part of our business.   As our new grads start their professional journey, they are excited, nervous, anxious and last but not least READY!  One thing I can guarantee if you start your profession with Target, you will be ready.  We have a five week training program that incorporates leadership and technical knowledge that prepares our new team members  to care for our guests’ healthcare needs.

Target also connects our new leaders to a network of other executives to support them along the way.  There are a multitude of resources to set them up for success.  We have a best practice and training for everything, so when you are in doubt you can look it up!

Our training is not only for technical expertise; we also start our leaders with resources for their individual development. My journey as a pharmacist started off a little different with another retailer and I am proud to say I am now part of a team that values training and a successful kickoff to a long career.  The resources we have at Target helped me gain the confidence I needed to be a successful leader and I have felt that way in every step of my Target journey.

    As I follow Target’s OTC medications particularly for children, I see Target more in the role of a “follower” and not so much a leader. Target OTC guidelines (labeling,dosing instructions, and dispensing devices) are established by the major pharmaceutical companies and Target accepts that as their standard. I am concerned with all the new guidelines issued by the FDA for OTC children”s medication that Target may be innocently non-compliant. As a leader in this arena, Target needs to rethink this issue. Something to think about.

    I will have been working for Target for 4 years in August and will graduate from pharmacy school in May 2015. I have been through many ups, downs, changes, and have worked at several locations, but through everything I absolutely love working in the Target Pharmacy team. We have a really great work environment and I have yet to find a store without a positive working environment. Although we are a little antiquated in technogy, our guest and patient relations make up for it as I feel Target pharmacy teams really get to know their clients and learn to love them. We also work well as a team and depend on each other to work efficiently , as this is the case with most pharmacies. However, because we don’t have the best system, I feel like the communication among our teams are superb because we do not depend on technology to determine workflow.
    When I graduate with my PharmD in 2015, I can only pray that Target continues to have me as part of their team and I can work as a Target pharmacist. This really is a great company, and I would not be where I am today without Target pharmacy and their team members.

    Thanks!

I have been applying jobs with Target in the areas that I am interested in Georgia maybe about 20 times but nobody has any interest in my application. One time I could see my status as “no longer considered” as soon as I turned in my application. Could you please explain?

However, all the Pharmacist position list licensing as a requirement. Can I apply for these positions prior to graduation? Or do I have to actually wait until I am licensed? Does Target hire graduating students with the agreement that they have to be licensed within a certain amount of time?…Thanks
