Busy workers go unappreciated
Flow Team (Current Employee), Citrus Heights, CAOctober 21, 2014
Pros: was early in the morning so i still had the rest of the day.
Cons: the people, the boss's
I feel that I bust my butt most days and don't get an recognition. Everybody has their bad days and I am one of them, but most of the time I bring my A game and push myself to the limit. I try and turn it into a workout just to make it more interesting and to help push myself. But it's never good enough. No matter how fast I went or how much I pushed – more... it never seems to be enough. It's always "why didn't more get done, or that's all you did?" It's sort of an ego killer when I think to myself hey I did good, we quick, got a good workout in, and then I get told I didn't do enough, or I wasn't quick enough. And for this reason I find myself looking for other employment where my skills will be noticed and maybe a little appreciated. – less

Fast Fun and Friendly Company that Listens to their Employees
Team Member/Beauty Brand Member (Current Employee), Machesney Park, ILOctober 21, 2014
Typically at work I'm responsible for the Cosmetics area. I'm responsible for keeping it looking clean and helping guests find what they need. I interact with any vendors and help set end caps and keep the zone looking nice.

From this job I learned how to multi-task better as well as how to be nice and polite to guests/team members even if they aren't – more... in the best moods. I've learned how to manage not only my time better but those of my peers and find their strengths to help the work day be more productive. I've learned how to work in just about every aspect of the store and this is helpful if I need to fill in for a co-worker or they need to move me to another work center.

Management and co-workers can be hard to handle at times but I've learned that you need to still try your hardest to keep a positive attitude and do your best to accomplish what they ask of you in the time given. It doesn't do any good for you to get upset if they are in a bad mood or anything so keeping a smiling face and positive attitude will help others do the same. – less

Great environment for personal development.
Executive Team Leader (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAOctober 21, 2014
Pros: team engagement and culture, results-oriented leadership
Cons: work-life balance
Target is a wonderful environment for personal learning, growth, and development. Leadership at Target means providing and receiving continuous feedback on performance to develop an efficient, hard-working team that delivers on company goals and initiatives. Each day brings new changes, some more challenging than others, and requires leaders to be resilient – more... and adaptable - capable of making intelligent decisions quickly and responsibly, while also considering the impact to the business and the team as a whole.

The culture at Target is one of teamwork, respect, and service. This culture, along with consistent communication and clear company goals, creates a positive environment for achievement and success. It is also one of the most rewarding aspects of the job - working as a team towards a common goal, and then meeting or exceeding it is what makes being a leader at Target truly great. – less

No one wins
Perishables Associate (Current Employee), Nashville, TNOctober 21, 2014
Most of the mangers are horrible people who care only about the businesses and not the individual. The Other Team Members are wonderful and always willing to help. The culture in the store is BAD no one is happy everyone complains. its not a good place and its hard to be fun, fast, and friendly when everyone around you is miserable.

Pay and benefits are very good for a job with little qualifications. Workload is tough and fastpaced, but doable.

Fun place to be
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Temple, TXOctober 20, 2014
Pros: atmosphere, crew members
Cons: couponders
Scanning groceries and offering customers to apply for Red cards.
Red cards: is a debit/credit card, that allows you to save 5% with each shopping purchase.

Management is amazing!

Co-workers are full of energy and seem as if they want to be there.

Hardest part of the job are the coupons.

Most enjoyable part of the job is the atmosphere.

A fast paced environment requiring a lot of multi tasking.
Brand Merchandising, Team Member (Current Employee), Glendale, COOctober 20, 2014
At Target I always have to be prepared for anything the day could bring me. Every day is different and the unexpected happens all the time so being mentally prepared is important. The past four years have taught me about the way a business is run, ways to improve that business and mostly about people. How people live their lives, how they operate, how – more... they handle certain situations and how I have made myself a better person from seeing all these. I see thousands of people every day and not only do I say hi to them because I have to as part of my job description I also want to. Saying “hi” is something I do when I go for a walk. I don't understand how two people could walk past each other in a park and not say hi. Target has made me a better person. A more outgoing person and I will never forget that. However it comes to a time when you start keeping ideas to yourself because what you think are good ones end up in the trash can almost before they are considered. Target is set in their ways and everything I thought was a good idea never mattered. I want to be mattered. I deserve it. I am a very hard worker yet I make my job fun because its where you spend most of your time in life. I would like to be able to experience more outside of work as well. It is hard to do so when you work so hard yet do not get paid nearly what you deserve. My coworkers have kept me at Target for the past 4 years and when I leave I will miss them terribly. Yet it is time to move on to something better that I am proud of. A company I can write home about and tell them how much I love my career and brag about it. – less

Cashier (Former Employee), Chicago, ILOctober 20, 2014
A typical day at work for target was stocking the shelves over night when items ran low. I would tag the items, make sure things were cleaned, and I made sure everything was done in a thoughtful organized fashion. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the customers. I loved to help them with the things they could not find.

Human Resources Assistant (Current Employee), Northridge, CAOctober 20, 2014
Pros: gaining experience for my degree, bbq montly, fexible schedule for me to go to school
Cons: not enough pay for what you do.
A typical day at work for me is very exciting because in this position I 'am always busy and I love helping my employees.
The skills I acquired from working in this field are: active listening, speaking, coordinating, and complex problem solving. The management I currently work for gives you the opportunity to work in different positions throughout – more... the store to see what suits you best. The hardest part of the job is keeping about 200 employees happy and eager to come to work, but at the same time it might be challenging but I love what I do. Also being away from my son can be difficult but I know its worth it at the end for the both of us. The most enjoyable part is when my employees recognize me for the all the hard work that I do and tell me they are lucky to have me working for their company. Also I may not get paid a lot of money but even with what I receive I like to take my son out. – less
