Where can Target Take You?

I wanted to share with you all an awesome story about where Target has taken me in my career. I was recruited as a Pharmacy Technician around 8 years ago and immediately felt at home. In this environment I grew to understand my worth and what having great developmental support can do for a person. I credit this support and encouragement for helping me pursue my dream of becoming a Pharmacist.

After being accepted into Pharmacy School, I transferred to a Target store in Savannah, GA. I worked as an intern while I attended South University. I was able to really focus in on my studies because I knew that I wanted to stay with Target as a Pharmacist. Again, Target’s support and development helped me graduate number 1 in my class! After school I returned home to Pensacola, Fl. and began my pharmacy career with Target as a floater. Although I loved floating and helping multiple stores provide genuine healthcare and services to our guests, I accepted a position as an Executive Pharmacist and shortly after became an ETL-RX Pharmacy Manager. During my time in Pensacola as a Pharmacy Manager I lead my store through many changes and worked to develop a resilient, driven, and happy team.  When first arriving to this team I quickly realized that change management would be an important part of my role. I really worked on bringing out the positives and explaining why we are an ever evolving company and what benefits it brings our team and guests. This really helped my team see the value in challenging themselves and becoming more resilient and adaptable. With this renewed outlook we rose to the top of our group in results and team engagement.

Some other things I’m proud of are assisting my peers and Business Partner as a district resource and working with our entire group of 65 pharmacies as our vaccination captain.  These challenges helped me prepare for my next role with Target, a Healthcare Business Partner in Louisiana. In this role, I will help lead 18 stores to excellence and give that same developmental support that has been given to me.

    After having joined Target as well as an employee in sideline/cashier, I can also see the family environment we have. I think with that environment and management support for its people means a lot to progressing ones self esteem as well as making something of ones self. Target recognizes its employees for the good they do always whether with themselves or with guests

    Wow!!! That’s just what I needed to hear! I need that same opportunity for myself. I have to make the step. I believe that whatever pours unto me will pour out unto my 2 girls. I have some fear of failing myself, my girls, and people who have invested themselves in me to where I do not want to let anyone down. You are an example of what I can do and where I want to go!!!
