I currently work for target as a sales floor team lead. I've been with the company for 3.5 years, starting as a cashier moving around to all the basic areas of the store (guest service, fitting room, starbucks, sales floor, etc) and was promoted to GSA and then TL.

While retail hours are never fun, they have been extremely accomodating with my other job at a local theatre. They've worked around my rehearsal and performance schedule like a dream. I've never wanted for hours, in fact I've had to turn them down on more than one occasion. Except for the whining of "no one works but me" (which comes from EVERY employee there, which in itself proves that it's a mass delusion) the environment is...
