Success as a Target Team Member

Success, the accomplishment of an aim or purpose. Something that Target Team Members should keep in the forefront of their mind, and they do. Not only for themselves, their leaders and Team, but for the betterment of Target Corporation as a whole which means every Target Team Member (TM) gets to share every company success. Specifically within the distribution network there is a strong understanding that creating and being a part of a holistic working environment allows success for everyone.

On an individual basis I have had the pleasure to experience many facets of the company over the past five and a half years; starting as a Seasonal Team Member at the T2032 store in Winter Park, Florida I have since been able to expand a job into a career. Invited to become a full time TM at the end of the season I opened the opportunity to cross train in almost every department in the store. From there my leaders saw the passion I have for my work and the respect I have for Target’s purpose. The leadership team continued to harness my potential when they invited me to be a temporary Human Resources Clerical, a position I had never thought of as a career path. Looking to relocate I started to search for other possibilities within the company.

With Target’s various locations and job roles the transfer possibilities seem endless and as fate would have it I found an available Sr. HR Specialist position at the Target Distribution Center located in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. After a phone interview and meet and greet I got the transfer! Ecstatic for the life changing opportunity I have found the role still continues to offer me growth and expansion of knowledge as I further my career.

My story isn’t the only one; in fact it is just one story of thousands. Recently I was facilitating a new hire orientation and as I welcomed the group of new TMs I began to introduce the Sr. HR Specialist Team and the two Sr. Target Security Specialists that were present. As I spoke about each TM I quickly realized there was an ongoing trend. Every one of us had started on the ground floor as Warehouse Workers, Packers and Store TMs and through our commitment to Target and our belief in the company’s cause we were all able to promote into multiple roles to get to where we are today.

It is incredible to think about all the ways Target leadership teams continually seek out potential and work alongside their TMs to ensure they have the best employment experience. Success, a person or thing that achieves desired aims, purposes and attainable prosperity. Providing chances to explore, challenge, create, expand and become a successful and influencing part of a Team is a special thing and is something we all get to share as Target Team Members.

Target is more than a great place to work; it is a home away from home and a step towards the next adventure in your life.

I currently work doing specialed construction and im gone for 2 weeks every month or so and I was looking for work during the time that I am not away working. Its a lot to ask but im someone who will be there to pick up shifts whenever needed when im in town as well as someone who will work as many hours as I’m allowed doing whatever is asked of me. I hope to hear from you soon.

    Thanks,
    Steven
