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.
Bulk barn empress location offered one of my worst experiences working yet. You would be constantly pulled to the back and have your job threatened for absurd things such as getting to know your co workers. If youre not 15 minutes early , your “late” which is a complete joke of a rule , there is hardly any free room to do your position and you will ge constantly watched on cameras all day long as well as pesterred about things that you have no control over.

The hours aren't great and the company is painfully unorganized. You either get little to no hours or just barely under 40. There are no break rooms, no microwaves and although you work in a backroom with various heavy items, the company does not provide steel toed shoes for their workers as part of the uniform. All in all, its a good place to work for a first job.
