Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Glen Burnie, MD – December 12, 2017
Id go in about 10 minutes early to organize my register, greet customers and help them find things they needed, or help to find something, management was not the best, not very helpful and when the front end was unorganized or cart attendants weren't doing their jobs too I had to used my break to clean the entire front end, instead of managers asking other workers to complete the job they were hired for.

I would not recommend Target to anyone that is looking for a good full-time or even part-time work. They are horrible with hours and will not give you the hours you need, and that is the reason I will be leaving.

A typical day at Target is never boring, there is much to do especially when it comes time to the holidays. The enviorment you are in is very friendly and welcoming. The management team tries to help with every possible way they can. The hardest part of the job might be the the rushes but they are also the best part because they put you through your paces.
Cashier Team Member (Former Employee) – Apple Valley, MN – December 11, 2017
fast-paced. expect to have people ask you questions that you aren't qualified to answer. try to have deft hands. they REALLY want you to push their credit cards and you'll be sternly talked to if you don't.
bad pay, strange bosses, very rushed, often not enough people, have to push things people really don't want
Guest Service Attendant (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – December 11, 2017
An easy job. Management at the store level is terrible. Lower management TLs, SRTLs, GSAs are young adults with no other work experience and they do not how to manage people and they turn into little tyrants. They are protected by ETLs and the STL. They literally get away from bloody murder. You do meet some great people at Target. The pay is better than other retailers. They provide refreshments around holidays or sometimes on Saturdays. This job is great for students, retired folks and for stay at home parents. You can definitely work your way up and if you have a degree it can open doors for you to be an ETL, STL, and/or more. you have to kiss a lot of (you know what). Quick lunch (30 mins) Team member discount could be better (its currently 10%)...I heard from a older TM that the discount in the 90s was 30% (I haven't been able to confirm). You get an addition 25% off C9/Joy Lab athetlic clothing and PFresh foods (fruit, veggies, etc). Benefits are great if you're full time or management. Some of the "Guests" are complete sociopathic nightmares but most are very nice. Management is all about making guests happy, it doesn't matter if they are wrong or belittling a TM.
Pay, fun co-workers, benefits, TM discount, culture, schedule friendly
Overnight Flow Team Member (Former Employee) – Trumbull, CT 06611 – December 11, 2017
Management was a nightmare. Massive time constraints that would eat up your 15 minute breaks (2 per night). coworkers rarely cleaned up after themselves and management would reprimand the one person assigned to clean up crew.
Cashier (Seasonal Employee) (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – December 11, 2017
Target is a great place to work with friendly staff & management. The lack of benefits & full time positions is cause for seeking other employment. All in all I would recommend this job to anyone looking for seasonal or part time work.
Sales Floor Associate (Current Employee) – Huntington Station, NY – December 11, 2017
Working at Target isn't the most amazing thing in the world, but its not bad either. It's a good place to start working for your first official job. However, unless you really want to pursue a career in retail, it's not for the long run.
Team Member (Current Employee) – Waterbury, CT – December 11, 2017
This particular store has sketchy managers who are very quick to reject someone for hire based upon their mental disabilities. They allow team member harassment and have favorite employees that they protect. Otherwise the pay is great, the hours are great, and the work is so easy its boring.
Backroom Team Member (Current Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – December 11, 2017
Target was a great work environment but was only meant as a temporary job I am looking to start a career. It was a fast paced work environment that allowed me the opportunity to interact with different people every day.
loved that it was a Busy place to work with great training experience, great team members
Cashier (Former Employee) – Laurel, MD – December 11, 2017
A typical day at Target is fast paced and timed with just about everything. I learned the importance of inventory and customer service. The hardest part of the job sometimes came from making sure to complete all auto-fills in a timely fashion.
The management is very nice and help you if you have any questions.
he things I didn't like are the pressures they put on you to sell RED cards, Target credit cards. Also, they don't give you enough hours and, in turn, you don't get holiday pay.
