Cool people sucky management

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Fresh environment with cool coworkers and good vibes but management sucked and they didn't care about anyone's schedules or personal lives. Very easy to take advantage of the freedom but it's also the worst Target in the area for a reason; no organization at all and they have their workers leading the others but still little advancement for them.... the workers that were in charge did more work than the TLs and managers.


good pay, easy work


long hours, bad management

Good coworkers, terrible management

+Solid camaraderie between workers and leaders (to an extent)-Managers and store politics don't care about you or your time as long as they end up looking good

Good, until Covid

I enjoyed most of my time at target, had a flexible schedule, loved my team - not enough opportunities for growth. There aren’t enough jobs for people interested in management at a store level, super competitive. It was hard to achieve expectations and goals because of the domino effect of systemic failures throughout the store.

Easy Work and Decent Pay.

The job is comfortable and the pay is decent starting at around 16.75 and hour. That being said, merit-based pay raises don't seem to be very common. Great to find work and build a work-history but definitely not a "forever job."

Tedious job

Work environment is mostly relaxed. Team members and leaders are easy going. This particular position is very tedious. Most of your shift will consist of picking up clothes, folding and racking clothing items, organizing items, and assisting in all other areas of the store (front-end, general merchandise, pick-up orders/fulfillment)

Stock shelves

Great place to work. Worked there for 3 years in highschool. It was a great first job for a high school student ooking for money after school. Managers were decent.

It's okay

Its good except corporate cuts back hours to the point that store cannot operate efficiently. Employees are stressed to max trying to complete unrealistic expectations. Very low morale through out entire store.

Lovely work, be careful

The coworkers and management are amazing for the most part. The way everything is structured right now is highly stressful, but if you can cope with that, it's a great and secure job with management who care very well for your health.


Free lunches or treats, mostly amazing management

it’s okay

decent pay, work load was good but management and team leads were not the best. if you call out sick (even if you get someone to take your shift) they will lower your hours for the next scheduled week.

So far it's nice working in Blaine. Co workers are nice and reassuring and doing fulfillment on it's own is a fairly simple concept, sometimes stressful though.

Benefits (Seasonal)

Overall, it is a busy environment depending on what position you are hired for and what they have you doing. During my time there I got a bonus which was surprising.

EASY yet busy

I really liked working at target as a cashier. If you have good people skills and are good at multitasking this is the job for you! It’s fast paced and easy to learn.

toxic environment & not worth it

No proper training, horrible management, you don’t want to work here!!! Super unfortunate at what they advertise being a “good company” when its really not, people sacrifice their time and still that isn’t enough, and then they try to get you to shut up when you try to speak up about what really goes inside the company.

Okay, but no great

Pretty good job. Good pay but only is good if you have good management. Besides that then it is decent if you are in school or have a second job income

Fun and productive

Really good work environment. Lots of opportunities for growth in the company which was amazing. It's retail so a lot of changes often but otherwise constant

Pretty okay to work, can be super swag it depends on the day the people aka customers and coworkers as well, if they chill it’ll be chill if they mean old grumps don’t let them bother you. pay was well too

A bit stressful..

Very stressful environment at times. I love my coworkers. Leads can come off as unhelpful or unclear at times, but don't let that discourage you from asking for help when you need it.

it’s okay

The people are good to work with if you get along, but management does play into favoritism. you can be the most crosstrained person they have, and work everything that they say, but you’re still going to be expected to do so much more

Was okay

I worked at the Buckhead location for a few months. My experience was okay, not the best. I've worked at other Target locations before, and the Buckhead one was my least favorite. Micromanaging, passive-aggressive leadership
