New Part-Time Job

We have all seen this logo before!  Now my kids think that I work there and they are telling people, "Our Mom got a new job working at Target!". 

Well, they are partially correct!  I have taken on a new part-time merchandiser position with Lawrence Merchandising and it just so happens that I will be doing merchandising jobs in our local Target store.  So, yes, I am working part-time at Target, but not as a Target employee. 

I saw a help wanted ad in our newspaper for a merchandiser position at our local Target store.  I called the number and applied online.  I completed an interview via phone and was hired on the spot.  This will give me a chance to earn a little extra cash while utilizing my background in retail.  Plus, this is a year-round job and not just during the school year like my para job. 

I will be merchandising the costume jewelry, the sunglasses and the Excell product (trading cards) on a weekly basis at our local Target store.  I can also receive other projects to complete at the store, but also other stores, such as Walmart, Shopko, Tractor Supply, etc.  I can be scheduled for projects to be completed in one week up to 20 hours.  Plus, the hours are flexible.  I complete the jobs on the days and times that I wish.  I am allowed to merchandise Monday through Friday from 8 am - 6 pm. 

This week I completed four projects for a total of 7.5 hours.  Next week so far, I have five Target projects scheduled, two Walmart projects and my monthly Foster Grant visit to Family Dollar.  It will be a busy week!

Take care,
