Executive Team Leader (Former Employee) – Wheaton, MD – November 13, 2018
Retail just isn't for those that are below the store manager position AND have a family. Hours are long, weekends are nonexistent. Never enough hours for team members to complete the task at hand. I've had to work a trash compactor at 7 months pregnant. I've also had to pick up employees in a snow storm while 7 months pregnant because metro system was closed, and Target refused to close. No consideration for the well being of employees.
Overall it's a great first job for younger applicants typically around the age of 18
SALESFLOOR / ELECTRONICS TEAM MEMBER (Former Employee) – Connecticut – November 13, 2018
The job started out good for me I developed many communication skills and had great insight the the store operations. However the changes in management and the status of my particular store, made it a stressful environment as time progressed. Its a good job to start at, I started at 18 however its best to move on to better opportunities. The lack of full time hours and biweekly pay makes it hard to balance living situations especially after holidays.
Great flexible scheduling, discount and collective retail experience
Part time only for team members, hours vary on seasons and management shifts at times.
Food Service Team Lead (Current Employee) – Danville, VA – November 12, 2018
I worked with this company for almost 6 years and I never felt more unappreciated as I did. I was a Food Service Team Lead at my store and it was never acknowledge in any team meetings or HUDDLES. My team felt so separated from the rest of the store. The management cared more about the "floor" of Target than anything else. Last I remember Starbucks and the Café were part of Target, In which my team NEVER felt that way. The hardest part of my job was having to work both the café and starbucks at the same time due to only one team member at each department at one time so one had to cover each others breaks. So it left one department without someone for a moment. I cant say I hated this job only because the "misfits" of target as we called ourselves became a family and had each others back! The one thing I would change about the whole company cause this is the second Target I have worked at and it was the same prdeal is...show the food service team the same RESPECT you shouw the floor!
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.
APPAREL AND ACCESSORIES TEAM MEMBER (Former Employee) – Cypress, TX – November 12, 2018
The work environment itself was a really good one. The team members I worked with were an amazing group of men and women who balance fun and work. Management let their personal feeling/life get in the way of how they did their jobs. The most enjoyable part was my co workers, and the least enjoyable were certain members of management. The job overall was fun and quite easy.
CASHIER, CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee) – Fort Collins, CO – November 12, 2018
Working as a cashier was very stressful. Management does not care about how nice you are to customers, how fast you are, etc. they only care about how many redcards you can get people to sign up for. They would rather have you be inconsiderate to customers by constantly berating them to sign up for the red card rather than being genuinely nice to them. Very strict on hours. There are some people I know that are still at this job and love it, however, it depends on the person. If you are interested in becoming a salesman/are competitive this may be the job for you.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Fredericksburg, VA – November 12, 2018
The normal team members make it fun to work there but management is just awful. They want you to do their job for them while they sit around just drinking Starbucks. There is also no communication with each other so if one tells you to do something someone else will tell you the complete opposite. The worse though is if one of them is having a bad day they take it out on the whole store. It’s really stressful. They also will only promote people who are just as lazy as they are so they can sit around and talk with them. If you are a hard worker they keep you in your position and make you do your job plus their job for minimum pay.
Target Team Member (Former Employee) – Peachtree City, GA – November 12, 2018

Flow Team Member (Former Employee) – Henderson, NV 89052 – November 12, 2018
In many ways it's a far more organized Kohl's from a Logistical perspective. Nice folks, but slim hours. It's much like any other retail store but with a section devoted to selling kitschy furniture to aging millennial couples. It's the place to shop when you want the illusion of being better than the proles that shop at Walmart.
Logistics Team Member (Former Employee) – Santa Ana, CA – November 12, 2018
Very relax workplace, good for either students or people looking for a job that provides 20-40 hours a week. Logistics process requires some physical labor and is more fast paced than the other positions in the store.
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.
Business Process Consultant (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – November 12, 2018
I am glad that I had an opportunity to work at Target headquarters. My experience was challenging because it was my first job after being somewhere for over 10 years, so transitioning into the TGT culture was somewhat challenging. Generally, the people are nice.
