I loved the team I worked with here! Pay was definitely low for the position, especially in comparison to other companies. I had a fantastic leader while I was there but did feel held back by the store director. This particular store has an incredible team that I miss so much and when you work in retail, your coworkers can definitely make or break the whole job.


Low pay, short breaks

They really do care about their team

Great benefits. Great support. Competitive pay. Easy to advance if you want a career here, you just have to care about your work in a retail environment where most team members don’t.

Better company than others

Target is the standard corporation that could do a lot more for their employees, but either won’t or will give the bare minimum and expect people to cheer. They do give slightly longer breaks and lunches (though that really depends on what state you live in) and the benefits are better than a lot of other stores like it. The minimum wage is pretty decent, don’t expect a big raise your yearly review (it’s usually pennys), and hours can vary despite them constantly needing workers/work to be done

Would not do it again

No one cares for you here, mean people and rude boss, low pay, not worth it at all. Bad training too and you get treated worse than the army for the low pay.

Fun workplace/bad management

My coworkers were great. The managers, however, were not so great. They would expect the impossible most days. The pay is okay but certainly not enough to compensate for how much work is required (always short-staffed) and it’s difficult to keep a full-time schedule

Not too bad

It could get overwhelming at times due to short staff but overall - it was an okay place to work at. The hours were super flexible which was a big deal for me.

The Store

It was a good time for the best of the day and night to be done good with the back of the house and then there is to be a little bit of the same time.

Pretty nice! Not perfect

Hours were consistent for a while, then dropped randomly. Otherwise its okay. The management is nice and understanding, but the hour drops is not fun for anyone.

It’s retail.

All in all an average place to work and if you’ve worked retail you know what to expect. Poor hours outside of 4th quarter, average pay, no set schedule, etc.

Fun place to work

It can get hectic especially during the holidays. However the staff and management were incredible and was honestly the best job I had. Very flexible schedule

Job security

As long as you do what’s required you’ll be fine. #1 on the list is it’s all about pushing the freight and getting it completed on time. Minimal payroll throughout the year, improving November and December.However in January disappears.


Good teams


10-12 hour days

Work life balance

Working at Target was a positive experience for me. One of the aspects I appreciated the most was the friendly and supportive coworkers. The team environment fostered a sense of camaraderie and made the workplace enjoyable. Collaborating with colleagues who were always willing to lend a helping hand created a positive and inclusive atmosphere.Additionally, the pay at Target was fair and competitive. It reflected the value of the work being done and provided a sense of financial stability. This fair compensation was an important factor in my overall satisfaction with the job.

A small sme company, its an okay company to work for if you dont have debt to pay. Also the benefits are nice with a friendly working environment. Parking is a bit small

Basic work place

It’s just as you think it would be. Simple work if you are entry level like cashier or on the floor stocking shelves . Leads jobs are harder with not much more pay. Occasional raises but only 10-25 cents.

The starting pay is good but the raises are not the best. The raises are usually given yearly and depend on the time you have worked throughout the year.

Great job

Great pay, room for growth, and flexible with scheduling (at least my SD is) of purse there are cons but just like anywhere else. Lazy employees, too much pressure sometimes.

Decent job

You can get decent hours but sometimes for new people it can be is alright nothing special,sometimes can be very is decent more of a side job than a main gig especially if you’re a normal worker.

Good Culture

They have very good culture. Good place to work during high school or college. Make sure you like your department and hours because you can’t change availability until you’ve worked there for a couple months.

Not good for longterm

It’s a great place to work for benefits but not long term. Management favoritism is felt. The whole store feels political but maybe that’s just my store.
Was this review helpful?

Ok, but be warned about the hours.

The worst part about this is how my particular location can not guarantee you getting the exact amount of hours you request for (I want for 40 hours a week but I average around 31-37.5 hours a week). Other than that, it’s about the same as any other retail job.
