I didn’t leave I was a seasonal employee I guess they didn’t want me back. I actually wouldn’t want to go back I just needed xmas money. I am retired in my 50’s and I always felt they treated me differently cause I’m older. There is a lot of favoritism and absolutely no proper training. Although they tell you to wear khaki pants and a red plain shirt I saw many employees wearing Levi’s and red shirts that have sayings on them. They truly go by a double standard. There is a lot of back stabbing in order for them to get ahead.
I would go back as a customer but bever an employee!

I worked at Target for several months. I love to Shop there but as far as working there NEVER again. I left because HR doesn't care about seasonal employees/New team members.They dont bother with training us properly/AT ALL. I understand I was a newer employeee but please treat me with a level of respect. Scheduling was also done HORRIBLY. One week you'd have a 38HR work week and the next three weeks you wouldn't get over 20. When you have a new class coming in all managment and seasoned team-members shoud welcome the new class and help TRAIN and guide them when they saw them struggling. That NEVER happen at Target. You're were however spoken down to over the radio and most got angry when new team members had a questions. This wasn't an enviroment I wanted to continue subjecting myself to so I elected not to continue after my seasonal commitment. Thanks

Sick of the stocking all day. Don't know where alot of items go even with a my device. Need more LODS showing employees where all the numbers are especially on amplified floor displays. It's discouraging to not be to find where to put items.

Bathrooms were constantly filthy!! most days I just held it for 8 hours until I went home, that’s how bad they were!! Target should have separate bathrooms for employees!! Also the break room was disgusting as well and the vending machines were either broke or took your money! Maybe Target should pay the janitors better so they actually want to do their jobs too 🤦🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️

Favoritism. They'd rather promote a new team member than a team member with more experience. Leaders are fake. They'll lie to your face . Try being told they were pushing for you to be promoted and then not getting it. THEN to top it all off you find out they don't actually like you.

If you want to move up in the company you better be prepared to suck up.

Finally had enough after the 2nd rejection and basically being told I would never be promoted. 4.5 years of my life wasted at a company that would never give me a chance to move.

Favoritism. The lack of mobility within the company. They'd rather promote a new team member they like over someone with more experience. Leaders who are incredibly fake. If you're not a favorite good luck moving up.
