First I chose Target, which is a chain retail department store, McDonald’s which a fast food type restaurant, and Publix Grocery Store, which is a store chain that originated in Central Florida. Target is a chain retail store which first opened in 1962, they have many different departments within each store such as; clothing, accessories, housewares, electronics, pharmacy, toys, health and beauty, and groceries. Target has 1,916 stores in the United States and Canada, and 40 distribution centers in the United States and Canada. They employ 361,000 employees ("Corporate Fact Sheet", 2013.) They have a general manager, assistant managers for each department. Each department varies in the number of employee’s needed to maintain merchandise as well as customer support. Every department has a different allotment of house and operating expenses available to them depending on their projected business. There are many different jobs to be done on in the store.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
