Team Member (Former Employee), Ancaster, ON – January 26, 2014
My typical day at work was unloading product off of truck, and palletizing product according to plan. Then pulling product to the floor, and stocking product according to plan. I learned how to unload the merchandise and stocking according to the store planogram. I also learned how to use PDAS, and pump trucks. I found my Team leaders and supervisors – more... very helpful and always there when needed. I enjoyed working with the team i worked with, it felt like a family, the most enjoyable part of the job was working with great and helpful people, and making the job easier by working hard together, and sharing helpful ideas. The hardest part of the job would have to be fitting back stock in the back room. But always managed to pull through and do all the tasks we were suppose to do in an night. All and all a great environment to work in. Miss it very much, and was very sad to leave! – less
Retail and Customer Service (Former Employee), Windsor, ON – January 13, 2014
My job title was Sales Floor Team Member. This means on a typical day at work I would be responsible of circulating a designated area of the store and help store guests find exactly what they were looking for. I was also responsible of reassuring that overall cleanliness was maintained throughout my area, making it easier for guests to find exactly – more... what they need and leaving an overall good impression of the store. Store guests were very demanding at times, but I definitely learned that staying positive and trying to accommodate whatever I could for them was essentially the great asset to having them come back to the store; which was profitable for the company. Trying to satisfy everyone seems almost like an impossible tasks, it was very difficult to always offer customers what they wanted and disappointing them at times telling them not exactly what they wanted to hear was the hardest part of my job. What I most appreciated about Target was the connection I made with my co-workers. Our staff consisted of several younger adults, therefore it was very easy to interact with them, establishing a very positive attitude within the work area. A plausible atmosphere amongst good people is something that is definitely appealing in a job. – less

Pros: great salary and benefits
Cons: long hours, no overtime, poor cultur
Great salary and benefits. This job is not for the retail guru who is married to his job. Lots of inter-target marriges, but its hard to balance you life outside of target. Put it 60- 70 hours a week min.

Pros: free lunch
Cons: not enough hours
A typical day at work would insist of unloading a 24,000 plus truck , Thank i would take a cage full of electronics and lining up carts to put the merchandise in the carts as i sort them by aisles. I than would put everything out on the floor where it all belongs. After i would finish that I would back stock the rest of the merchandise in the back room – more... if it wouldn't fit on the sales floor. What I learned is that speed is life. you can do your job fast, but properly. My management was well maintained. My co-workers were all accepting, whenever another co-worker needed help we would always give them our hand. The hardest part of the job was lifting heavy merchandise on my own. The most enjoyable part of the job, was learning new things every night, – less

Pros: awesome team, outstanding organization, flexible with different postions
A typical day at work consists of constant movement and energy attempting to complete required tasks in order to complete store set up. I achieved new knowledge in which I can apply to my work and in any other future careers, such as communication, reading planograms, and of course to work safe in a fast fun and friendly environment. The most enjoyable – more... part of the job, is that I get to work with a team that consists of team leaders, team members and store manager, who put all their effort in doing their part of the job, yet they go out of their way to provide excellent communication, teamwork, and always answer any lingering questions to help get tasks done. – less
SOFTLINES TEAM MEMBER (Former Employee), Hamilton, ON – October 1, 2013
Pros: free snacks and food
Cons: slow pace at the beginning
I loved working in Target. Everyone was amazing to work with. I was a Fitting Room and Soft lines team member. Everyday for me would be pushing freight and new shipment of clothes to the floor. once finished, I would organize and usher guests to the fitting rooms. Target thought be to be a team player and have a fun time working. My co-workers and team – more... leaders were always helpful and treated me well. Hardest part of the job was at the beginning before the store even opened for business. It was tough but well worth it. – less
Team Member (Former Employee), Calgary, AB – August 15, 2013
Pros: great people, kids smiles
Cons: a lot of cleaning, lazy co-workers
Working for Bulk Barn was a learning experience in my mind. A day at work I would make sure things were clean while assisting with customers. The management was good for the first little bit then things started to get cliquey as well as there seem to be a lot of favoritism. The hardest part about working in this enviorment was the students who didnt – more... actually work. This made more of a job for me. The most enjoyable part of this job was seeing kids faces when they walked in and seeing all thecandy there was for sale. – less

Pros: you get 2 15 min breaks, and 30 min lunch if you work 5 hours or more/day
Cons: long time standing without a break or sit down. low pay.
Fast, Fun & Friendly is what they talk about. However, it depends on the management of the store. This can vary greatly from store to store. They do not promote from within as they say they do. It's a busy environment, you stand all day so you're tired at the end of your shift. If you don't have a university degree, you will never be hired as anything – more... more than a Team Member. It's an ok survival job when you need it. – less
