Supervisor (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 August 2013
With Target being so new to Canada is was a great way to see how Target was going to show how multi-cultural it can be. While working at Target I worked in the Electronic department, as well as all over the store when a guest was in need of assistants. The management of the store was one of the best i have seen. As target was new i was hired to before start up which ment we needed to build up the store, from putting up shelves to setting up product. The first couple weeks as we were doing set up the managment team made sure there was drinks in the fridge and as well bought lunch about 75% of the time. The best part of the job was how everyone got along, well most of the time. the harest part was because of how cultural Target was, some co-workers was hard to understand.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Sydney, NS – 21 March 2018
A typical day at work for a cashier would involve cleaning, more so than handling money, it was always very busy during the holiday season.
I learned about a variety of health foods as well as diet restrictions and gluten-intolerance.
Management was sadly all over the place and the main reason i left. after this particular location went corporate-owned the management went down hill and the supervisors would constantly put on a show for our district manager. a lot of drama and stress for an otherwise rewarding job.
Hardest part of the job initially was memorizing all of the codes designated to every bulk item, you eventually get the hang of it.
Most enjoyable part of the job: Learning about health foods and the seasonal candy section.
clean working environment
Worked for the company for 4+ years with no advancement opportunities
