Guest Service Associate (Current Employee) – Sterling, VA – January 23, 2016
The fun factor is absent in all facets of the establishment. really the only redeeming quality is the fantastic guests. co-workers were cordial and the management was fair and just but there was hardly anything to look forward on a daily basis. and the lust for Redcard leads was detrimental to morale.
Discounts on all items and even more on fitness and groceries
short breaks, understaffed at times, unavailability of hours

Great culture, everything is fast paced especially around the holiday time. The benefits are great and if you plan to move up, this isn't a bad company to do it in. Just have to be on top of management and show them you want to move up.
Cashier/Guest Services (Former Employee) – Silverdale, WA – November 16, 2018
Working at Target was pretty fun, unless you talked to management. The employees were fun to be around and everyone was usually pretty helpful. Working guest service was the best part because you could help people and be relied on, but other than that, management sucks. A lot of people I know, left because of it.
This is not true for all Targets but the 1 Bad Apple ruins the bunch for me. Target had some great benefits and room for upward movement. Even knowing that the culture in the particular Target I was at was so toxic that I can honestly say I will never go back.
Guest Services Attendant / Electronics Team (Current Employee) – Revere, MA – November 12, 2018
Having worked for the Target Corporation for going on 3 years I learned that the quality of work ethic varies from store to store.
When it comes down to it, when you do your job in a high stress position, you tend to get noticed for it, and if you fall behind, you blend into the woodwork. If you plan on advancing forward; laziness is not rewarded.
Human Resources/ Guest Service Team Lead (Current Employee) – Abington, MA – November 12, 2018
ive been on and off with target for a while. its a good company overall to work with, although the management is constantly changing. sometimes people dont see quite eye to eye with one another, which of course, makes some days more difficult that others. i enjoyed my run with target until recently, i had some medical issues and i could not receive the time off that was required. it made it difficult for me to heal properly so i, unfortunately, had to begin looking elsewhere for employment, i was an HR team member, which was pretty enjoyable. i helped answer the phone and help with paperwork, as well as doing orientations for new team members. i enjoy meeting new people so it was a good experience for me to be in the position i was in. i got trained throughout christmas time to work in any part of the store that was necessary. i like that i got trained and was able to learn all aspects of the store. i was promoted to GSTL (guest service team lead) which basically meant i was in charge of everything in front of the store. some days were harder than others, but nothing that somebody would not be able to handle.

I started working at target when i was 16 and in four years my pay went up four dollars. It is good pay for the work load and you wont find any other retailer that will pay that well and be that flexable
Sales Associate/Guest Service/ Cashier (Current Employee) – Savannah, GA – November 10, 2018
I worked at Target for four years. I didn't enjoy it at all. I had moments with great managers and moments with terrible managers. The terrible managers were more consistent than the good ones. There was a racist team lead that I seemed to work with all the time. He was awful. I felt very undervalued as an employee. I did my best, I worked hard, and I was a great team player but that didn't reflect when it was time for raises. We didn't get bonuses. Your pay was based on hours work. I worked almost everyday of the week and still couldn't make $300. Terrible. I was working for pennies but my caliber of work was above and beyond that. So I wouldn't recommend working for this company at all. Do your research and don't believe the hype. The company is built on the backs of the Sales Associates but the Executives get all the benefits. Not cool! Bad Company.

GUEST SERVICE TEAM LEADER (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – November 2, 2018
I spent 17 years at Target working in every department starting as stocker all the way up to Team Leader. I enjoyed 95% of my time there as well. Pay and benefits could be a little better but they are coming along with that...

If you get past the seasonal hire you will find the hours vary throughout the year; however, management will work with you to schedule around your second job. Unfortunately, Target is not a single career, in other words, you can't make a living. Work atmosphere is a working family; they are friendly and very helpful which reflects when you are the customer.
