Question $1,000 per week Housekeeper jobs at “"Target Logistics”?

I had seen several ads on Craigslist and on a blog, for a company called “"Target Logistics” offering $1,000 per week jobs. I was curious to know if anyone in this forum (in the last 4 weeks) has gotten one of these jobs?

If so, do you really make $1,000 per week gross? It looks like these jobs are open to both men and women, yet I was curious to know if you had to have housekeeping experience to get your job? Looking at the job duties for these jobs, it looks as if anyone could easily do them, as long as they following instructions well and are a fast to average learner.

Yet all of this sounds a little bit too good to be true, especially when considering all of the people that are in North Dakota now, looking for good paying jobs and still have not found one as of yet.

All I have to say is do your homework. Target is a great company to work for. Its not scam not a fly by night. They are hurting for people.

Go to there web site and apply for your self.

In the oil field jobs, that is about minimum wage.

Don't kid yourself. These housekeeping jobs are not easy. Granted you don't need a college education but it is hard work, long hours and a lot of the residents are flat out pigs. Not Target specifically but any of the mancamp cleaning gigs.

Housekeeping jobs suck . I worked for Merry Maids for awhile and for a national hotel chain for awhile as well. The worst thing about both jobs, is you are timed. You don't clean at your leisure - you run your butt off. It doesn't matter how disgustingly dirty a home or a hotel room is, you only have so much time to get it done and get it done right. The biggest thing I learned from those two jobs is that people can make more of a mess than any animal I have ever had to clean up after. YUCK, YUCK, YUCK.

Well, lets face it. Although a 1000 a week would work for me here. To pay rents at 2-3000 mth, on a 1000 week, you'd be starving and broke, unless you got housing w/ the job. And, I saw a post recently that Target had offered someone 10 hr for a cooking job....not a very good wage in the living conditions of Williston. I wonder how all these new resturants are gonna stay open....heard a few places have closed, and others have reduced hours, can't keep staff, no place to live. Or, the rents have gone up where they already live.
