Every other day, it was always something. The training was terrible. I was trained by someone, whom other employees felt didn’t deserve the position over hardlines. In a month they assume you know how to do everything. Overall it wasn’t a terrible place to work, it was just stressful at times. Retail sucks where ever you go honestly

I was a team lead, paid well, work pace was great!!! I worked in 5 different areas during my tenure. NEVER had an issue, I consistantly recognized everybody for a job well done, face to face and via team cards posted. The ETL's and STL were great, communication was awesome, (I worked in 3 separate locations). I left sadly due to a higher position with another position.
I continue to look for a sales floor team lead position to return.

New End-to-End process puts WAY too much pressure on individual employees. Bosses didn't care about the stress and constantly berated me for work that wasn't getting done because I was literally the ONLY person in Domestics. Management refuses to hire on more cashiers so everyone else is expected to provide backup cashier coverage when the store gets busy, then will btch at you for the work you aren't getting done while you're stuck on a register.

Too much stress which caused me to get sick. Stress can really make you sick. Managers did not know what they were doing. Also attempted to get promoted twice but as always "you don't fit the look" excuse came in. Attendance was bad, due to stress from the job and them not adjusting my schedule. Favoritism was at a all time high. Just got tired of the run around.

Hired because they were having attendance issues so all the current employees did not want me to be there. They were all unhappy because they were not getting the full time hours that they were years ago when they first started. They pay close attention to what you are doing and meanwhile they are on their phones or slacking off. I overheard them talking badly about one person only to have them talk about the person they were just talking to. everyone is miserable because they are broke but no one does anything about. They help Target by staying in a low paying job.
