Executive Team Leader (Current Employee), Grande Prairie, ABMay 14, 2015
Pros: Great place to work
Cons: Retail challanges
I started with Target In winter of 2012 as an Executive Team Leader, It was great place to work I must admit, it had its challenges but that is given in retail, nothing I couldn't over come by being resilient and adaptable. The team culture we had in our store was the greatest, every team member was willing to support their peers and deliver great guest experience.

Presentation Team Member (Former Employee), LogisticsMay 13, 2015
Pros: Free lunches
Cons: Too early start time (4:00am)
Target Canada brought the FFF factor ....... Fast .......Friendly ....... Fun to the store, with Team Store Huddles daily letting the members know who was spotted doing an excellent job and acknowledging every customer (guest) who entered the store. Co-workers were all very well trained in their positions which made it enjoyable to do the job, the difficult part of the job was not getting the right information or materials from head quarters to complete the tasks.

Security/Asset Protection Manager (Former Employee), Thunder Bay, ONMay 12, 2015
Pros: Great Store leaders and support from district AP Team
Cons: Job Stability
A typical day was to audit store inventory and account for loss, conduct video and physical surveillance. Arrest shoplifters and create paperwork with evidence for prosecution.
Hardest part of the job is that Target has left the Canadian market, I will miss my team so much. Great team!

Flow Team Member (Seasonal) (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMay 11, 2015
Pros: Working with great staff
Cons: Unavailable merchandise
Target was very client, team focused environment. Staff who started at the same time, breaked at the same time. Safety was also very important, while working in the warehouse safety boots were a must. We were encouraged to work quickly yet also provide customer service to all guests while on the sales floor. Daily huddles were a must in order to communicate how well the store was doing, what needed to improve and how to always engage the guests. The work which included lifting, sorting, and stocking was hard and was time management based. What I like most was the team camaraderie, the visibility and approachability of management, and the push to provide an hassle free shopping experience for the guests.

Perfect job in all ways
Guest Service Team Lead (Former Employee), BurlingtonMay 11, 2015
Pros: great co workers
Cons: it closed
A typical work day would consist of making sure that all the cashiers were in order and also taking care of the front end making sure that pogs were filled that the front end of the store was zoned.

Taking care of returns and making sure that guests always were happy and they were taken care of.

I have learned very much working for target in most of every department, One of the biggest things I have learned how to do Reverse logistics & shipping receiving.

After being with the company and they put me with a management roll which was amazing training and the way our company helped me grow into the roll.

My coworkers were perfect we all worked as a big family never a stupid question and always willing to work together we were all determined to do our very best.

The hardest part of my job wasn't anything my job as a whole was always manageable and very enjoyable we always made sure to get our tasks done every day

down hill slope
Merchandising (Former Employee), Thunder Bay, ONMay 5, 2015
Pros: Team events, food events, ability to learn different systems of target
Cons: management, treatment, inflexability
at the beginning of target it was a fun fast paced experience being my first time in retail. I especially liked how they made you feel as a employee valued and appreciated. As time went on though the idea that you where valued became less and less apparent; as sales dipped the interactions between employee and management became bitter for those who did majority of the stock and unload posses. Hours that use to consist of almost full time came down to barely getting by and most of the original employees either found second jobs or left target entirely. I for one took the second job option but still tried to keep pushing my involvement in the company. the feeling of favoritism set in while I was continuing to work long hours at both jobs to get by; seeing many team members be able to change there hours of ability to fit around there other jobs and personally being denied the chance on quite a few occasions. going into the second year the conditions improved but it was really the team members and not the management that made the employment enjoyable. I personally would not change my decision on employment at target because of the people that I met and am still in contact with.

Customer Service (Former Employee), Aurora OnMay 2, 2015
Pros: Very clean environment to work in and rest in, we had free luncheons and refreshments on a regular basis.

I loved the culture there. The team work was phenomenal. My typical morning was busy. I had to make sure supplies were organized and full. I was on Guest Service Desk. I dealt with a lot of problems and issues in a timely and friendly manner. I told guests about all our benefits for the credit cards and price matching, coupons, sales and in store specials. We were very helpful on the floor too.

Fitting Room Team Member/Operator (Former Employee), Mississauga, ONMay 1, 2015
Pros: Provided lunch, movies, snacks, games
Cons: not enough hours for everyone
At the start of my morning shift i would grab a PDA and a walkie and head to the fitting room. Id check the reshop and make sure it was sorted correctly. Id then check the reverse/repackage bin and then communication binder. my shifts consisted of me maintaining the reship area along with the change rooms and the mens department. At the same time id be answering any phone calls that came in. I enjoyed working with everyone apart of the softlines team. My leaders were always there when you needed them. It was a great place to work.

Guest Service Agent (Former Employee), Kamloops, BCMay 1, 2015
Pros: Respectful and Helpful Local Management and Corporate Policies
Cons: Nil
Target Canada opened 2 years ago in Kamloops. I was with the store from opening, initially in the Back Room, becoming a Guest Service Agent after 6 months.

The GSA was required to interact with every department. Specific duties included Cash Management, Safe and Till Counting and Balancing (21 cash lanes), while overseeing cashier Personnel. and interacting with Guests to Mediate Disputes, Answer Questions and Solve Problems.. all within the company's policies.

Local Management (immediate supervisors and store management) were committed to delivering as good a Guest Experience as was possible.

Was a very good place to work overall...Guests became Friends and were generally committed Target Shoppers (in Kamloops)
