I work on the Flow team at target, which basically means I help unload the truck and stock the shelves at 5:30 in the morning. At first I thought it was going to be slow paced, simple, etc. Damn was I wrong.
Unloading the truck is the worst part. It reminds me a lot of that I Love Lucy episode where they get the job wrapping candy. Boxes come down the line and we have to put them on palettes based on what number is on the box. The boxes get stacked pretty high so if you mess that up the boxes will fall or you'll have to re-do it.
This usually lasts about an hour to an hour and a half. After that we have until 8 to get every box unpacked and on the shelves. Half the time we barely make it or are off by about 5 minutes, and there's about 30+ people doing this.
After my first few days, I had 7 blisters all together. Then again I'm lazy as hell so I wasn't expecting something quite so crazy. I love the job, but damn do I get tired. It never gets boring because there's always something to do, so that's a plus.
