Team Member Cashier (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – July 22, 2016
Worked for several years there, In the beginning things were a little frustrating and very fast paced but once I got the routine down, I began to really enjoy serving people in the customer service setting.
I held a lot of respect for many of my supervisors. Some I have even continued to keep in touch with since I left the company. My coworkers were friendly good people on the whole.
The hardest part of the job was working on days with heavy guest turn-up like on Black Friday or Christmas Eve. And with such little pay. However, such is the way of retail.

I did enjoy my time at target. For the most part, the people were friendly, and management was easy to work with. The problem comes when you have management who is less than honest, which is why I eventually had to leave. I won't include details, because that person is no longer there. It was, in my experience, a good job for a single person, or someone with no children. The time constraints of being a parent, especially a single parent, and working there were not compatible in my experience.

Target Protection Specialist/Target Electronics (Former Employee) – Deerfield Beach, FL – July 22, 2016
I hate to but I have to be completely honest about target.. it is a very neat and friendly place to shop. On the flip side to work for target is horrible. The management is power hungry and the benefits are ridiculous. they wouldn't allow me to work fulltime after being there in many different departments. I wasn't eligible to receive their benefits because of that.
free lunch on certain times of the year
wasnt allowed to recieve more than 30 hours to get benefits.
The job it self is good, mon-Fri 6 to 230pm. Work can be challenging but depends on how good you are trained. Biggest down fall is Management. They do not care about the team members, they preach about development but it's all talk. They tend to promote a pretty faces over experince, exact words from HR-ETL, which hurts the moral of the team. They talk about fairness but they pick and choose who they reprimand I'm order to get the results they want. No one is happy that works there, they Work hard for poor yearly compensation and a note that says you did good. Hours for normal team members are always cut back. The place is a joke.
Sr. Target Protection Specialist (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – July 22, 2016
I worked for Target for approximately five years while I was going to school. It provided a great opportunity to work while going to school and it seemed that management was flexible with accommodating its employees in this regard. The company provided good benefits, even to part-time employees. When it came time for me to graduate school, however, I put in for an internship with the company and was denied. This ultimately lead to me leaving the company all together and changing my career goals.

Great job and great company to work for. You get to meet many different people on a daily basis. The co-workers were great to work with. The actual labor wasn't hard at all. You had simple jobs as in stocking shelves, zoning, classifying items in the hard and soft lines. Just a basic easy job.

- Fast paced environment with a need for leaders who are adaptable and open minded. - Large focus on personal development while managing the development of both peers and subordinates. - Constant change surrounded by typical retail challenges requiring decisive planning and action. - A typical day is about 20%-30% managerial and 70%-80% tasking. - Co-workers vary depending on location but are usually one of the better aspects of the job. - Work-life balance and Managerial work versus time spent performing tasks are the hardest parts of the job.
