Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Menomonee Falls, WI – August 14, 2017
Working at target is a great place to meet new people and also allows growth within the company. There are many positions inside of target that are available to crew. Target is also a place for you to gain social skills.
Target Team Member (Former Employee) – Euless, TX – August 14, 2017
I worked in the clothing area, it was easy work that needed to be completed quickly. Everyone was pretty laid back, at least that's how it felt. It's an ok place to work, especially for a first time job.
The People and the Culture make Target the best job I ever had
Logistics Team Member (Current Employee) – Brick, NJ – August 14, 2017
Working the early morning FLOW shift at Target isn't for everyone. I have to be up early to be in work by four in the morning. There is sand in my eyes as I'm immediately put to work. The first hour is the most hectic. Two people are loading box after box onto an assembly line while another group palletize them. It's not uncommon to get slammed with dozens of boxes at a time and end sweating as you try to keep up. Our goal is to be off the truck in an hour. After that the unload, the pallets are brought to the floor and all the boxes must be opened and all the contents placed on shelves. Some team members are broken off to handle sections of the store such as Soft Lines and Market, but the majority of the store is restock by a group of Team Members waving through each section. By eight in the morning we should be just about finished and we take our fifteen minute break. Returning from break, we wrap up whatever is left before heading home at nine. Depending on available hours and how much work there is to be done, there are sometimes opportunities to stay later. The culture of the Target morning flow team is one of urgency. We do not want to miss our deadline. It is fast-paced with everyone working hard together to make sure we get everything done. We work hard together and all got to know each other. We know what motivates each other and don't want to let out teammates down. In my five years, I've seen a lot of people come and go. I find that the people who don't care about the job don't last long. If you care about the job and keep up the pace, you willmore... make it here. And once in, it's like joining a fraternity. A group of people who have your back and are there for you when you need shifts covered, etc. The leadership style is very relaxed. There's none of that "sir" malarkey, you just talk to your leader like they're a regular person. They'll answer any question and do what they can to help you because they genuinely want you to succeed. The little perks such as free food every once in a while or being allowed to listen to headphones are nice, but the most rewarding part of the job is seeing what you can achieve with people you care about. I feel valued and respected when i work there and that's why i stuck around.less
Listen to headphones, occasional free food, the people
Early Hours, Depending on your position it can be labor intensive
Application Support Analyst (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – August 14, 2017
Target was a good company. I worked there a number of years in different locations. If you are flexible, you'll go farther in the company. They are always looking to outsource projects, so regular employees might not be around much.
Backroom and Softlines Lead (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – August 14, 2017
I learned quite a bit while working for Target. I learned the in and outs of inventory, as well as how to lead a team and only improved upon skills such as time management, problem solving, and team/guest relations.
Fair wage and always engaging with fun events or personalized rewards
The occasional team member that just didn't want to be there and you had to pick up the slack.
ELECTRONICS TEAM MEMBER/TRAINER (Former Employee) – Aliso Viejo, CA – August 14, 2017
Working for Target can be stressful, not because of customers but because of management. Management puts all the work on the employee if a team leader is gone even if they are not trained. Management expects that you learned everything that you needed to learn with only 1 day of training, i would say thats the hardest part of the job. The most enjoyable part of the job would be the coworkers. If you want to work for Target, be ready to do more work then what they pay you.
Executive Team Leader - Replenishment (Former Employee) – Brentwood, MO – August 14, 2017
Typical work night was around 14-16 hours. Learned that retail is NOT for me! The culture was terrible. hardest part of job was trying to fix a process with being able to make only limited changes.Best part was the pay and benefits.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – August 14, 2017
The overall environment is determined by where you work, but is consistently full of nice people. The management is helpful, encourages hard work, and knows team members limits. The hardest parts of the job was usually when working alone and trying to keep track of everything while helping guests.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Salem, OR – August 14, 2017
Working at Target was really great, the only thing is that the customers are literally always right and they do get what they want and deserve. I learned that the customer will always be right. The most enjoyable thing about working at target was the amazing coworkers i had by my side
Backroom Team Member (Current Employee) – Columbia, MD – August 14, 2017
If you're young and trying to make a few dollar a solid job. Good benefits however if you move up in ladder. Poor Hours so limited benefits. Also, you'll be expected to work roles that would normally pay higher for your current wage (if you choose to move up) until that job opens up.
Flow Team Member (Former Employee) – Nashua, NH – August 14, 2017
A good place if you dont mind very fast paced work. Management was always the type to lead by example which i hold in high regard. The different teams interacted respectively for the most part and the members on each team interacted very well between each other.
could listen to music when store was closed, easy job
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) – Stuarts Draft, VA – August 14, 2017
This place is all about production and pushing to meet the numbers. Yes they talk about safety and the right way to do things. Training is a joke and isn't taken seriously. Very easy to get hurt here moving 450+ boxes an hour. Team can work together at times and against each other at other times. Nothing is balanced between workers, sometimes you will be doing a lot of work non stop. Very very hot summers, very unsafe. This job will work you no problem at all.
catered meals at times, vacation and pay
short breaks, two breaks during 12hours, heavy work load everyday
SENIOR MANAGED CARE SPECIALIST (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – August 14, 2017
I loved working for Target for 24.5 years and was planning on retiring at Target. Work life balance was a big thing for me and Target allowed this. I had leaders that saw how valuable of a worker I was without having to pat myself on the back or yell to the world how good of a worker I was.
