    Lol you're mistaken. They are not glorified stock people. In fact, they are not allowed to re-stock any merchandise, clean, etc, because they're actually NOT Target employees. They work for a 3rd party (marketing company) who created the program and get paid very well through that company directly. They are specifically there to offer guests help with beauty, and have been highly trained to offer this service.
