SALES FLOOR ASSOCIATE (Current Employee), Lincoln, CASeptember 12, 2014
Pros: free food in the breakroom
A typical day at Target starts at organizing the store and making sure everything looks nice and tidy. Pulling merchandise from the backroom to the floor is also included in one of our daily basis tasks.

Pros: good pay and staff
The management and staff I worked with made even working Black Friday not the worst thing. Retail is always crazy, but the when the plan is executed properly you can survive Black Friday without incident, always a plus

Definetly hard work
Logistics/ Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Fresno, CASeptember 12, 2014
Pros: fun activities, busy environment, job security
Cons: low pay, no advancement, lazy management, coworkers unprofessional
A typical day at work would begin with the unload and organization of our freight shipment. After it was palletized it was taken out to the floor and merchandised according to protocol. Once the general merchandise was complete then our food orders would come in and the same process would be repeated. I was also responsible for assembling displays/planograms, – more... weekly ad setup and training new employees as needed. I was also a Pharmacy Technician for the company. I was often shuffled around to different work areas as needed because I was cross trained in multiple areas of the store. I worked on a graveyard shift (11pm-7:30am) at one point and found that the environment was too relaxed. The management treated the employees as friends and my coworkers became hostile, unprofessional and overall a nuisance to one another due to lack of management skills. The hardest part of this job was the physical labor it entails. It requires a lot of heavy lifting and bending along with standing and waking for long periods of time. I also felt that for I was undercompensated for the amount of work I completed on a daily basis. Sometimes I would add tasks and responsibilities for my supervisors and I would not be compensated for it and my annual raise didn't reflect all the work I had done. The most enjoyable part of the job was working in the busy environment. When I worked daytime hours enjoyed the presence of customers. – less

Price Change Team Leader / Manager (Former Employee), Sand City, CASeptember 12, 2014
If you have a degree of any kind, don't work there. Corporate is looking for young people right out of school. Why? well because the'll get a smart leader at a very low price. This is not a place where you can think out of the box. It's what corporate says, the store manager will drive that culture as well. Again this is not a place for a person with – more... any sort of degree. Do yourself a favor and look elswhere. – less

Target was a nice company to work for
Cashier Team Lead (Former Employee), San Leandro, CASeptember 12, 2014
I started off as a cashier and was quickly promoted to cashier team leader, I was responsible for leading a team of 15 cashiers, making sure they had everything they needed, while providing service to customers in need.
As swing shift team leader I was responsible for making sure every register was closed at the end of the night and all the money bags – more... were accounted for.
Print out reads of the store and close down main computer. My co-workers were nice, i still keep in touch with a few of them. The hardest part of the job was trying to accommodate employees needs as well as customers. The most enjoyable part of the job was gaining experience as a leader, while raising my skills in customer service. – less

Sales Floor Team Member (Former Employee), Spokane, WASeptember 11, 2014
I worked at this company for 3 years. Some of my management was great. Other parts weren't so great.

If you take pride in your work and work hard expect to get a terrible schedule. They take the people who work hard and reward them with the worst shifts.

It was a fun place to work
Overnight Stocker (Former Employee), Duluth, MNSeptember 11, 2014
The management was very good. It was a fun place to work. The overnight shift was the most fun and the most difficult. It was fun because we got to move around the store putting things away. It was difficult because you worked all night and into the early hours of the day. It was also difficult because you were constantly moving boxes that were sometimes – more... heavy and required more then one person to move. – less

Productive and fun place to work
Team Trainer (Former Employee), Milford, OHSeptember 11, 2014
Pros: free food, special events, volunteering opportunities
Cons: pay, hours
A typical day at Target for me was coming in at seven a.m. and unloading the truck that would come in on monday, wednesday, and friday's. It would take about four hours in total to completely unload the truck and fully stock the shelves around the store. After the initial four hours, I would spend my time in the backroom, putting away all of the over – more... stock from the truck. I learned how to make quick decisions and adapt to sudden changes and challenges throughout the work day. The management at Target consisted of trust worthy individuals, that would understand personal problems and would work with you if anything was amiss. The co-workers and managers were great and friendly people who were easy to get along with and I never really had a problem with anyone there. The hardest part about working at target is the lack of hours and pay. It's not a place where you can walk in and expect to get a full forty hours every week. They only get a set amount of hours to work with and schedule people accordingly. The hours can range anywhere from twelve to thirty-five at the most. But the best part about working at Target was your fellow co-workers. Everyone tends to get along and work great with each other. No work place hostility and the "guests" (aka customers) were usually very nice and understanding. – less

stocker and cashier when needed (Former Employee), niles,ilSeptember 11, 2014
not much to say, to many chefs and not enough Indians. there was maybe five hand held scanners for 30 people to find the proper locations for new stock. Also if it rained or snowed the lot attendant's just couldn't find there way to work, so that feel on me the new guy. I didn't mind just give me a place to keep my clothes for working in the elements.

Learned so much working at Target. I loved the job just not the hours. If you want a job in retail I would highly recommend it.
