Great People not great Management
HR Team Member (Former Employee), AnonymousSeptember 10, 2014
Pros: great team work
Cons: poor management. not empathetic
The people that worked for Target are great. The hardest part of the job is to deal with frustration as promises from management don't follow through specially when they promise you full 40 hours of work and the next week cut them to 8 or even 4, you can not make a living with that small amount of work.

Despite this problem we were like a big family – more... in the store as Team Members got along pretty well. That is the reason why we stayed together. – less

Great company to work for but upset with management
Cashier/Guest-Service/Backroom (Current Employee), Mississauga, ONSeptember 3, 2014
Target is an amazing company to work for. The company has grown tremendously since its establishment and is continuing to grow. It is a company that will open your eyes and flourishes your experience in the work force. However, I was not happy with the management at all. They were not kind and understanding and appeared very selfish to me after having – more... known them for the past 5 months. I am currently in university and they want me to work full time during the school year, which obviously is not possible. Hence, I was indirectly forced to resign. I handed in my resignation letter as of today. – less

Cashier (Current Employee), Welland, ONSeptember 3, 2014
Pros: fun stuff such as, cereal saturdays, sundae sundays, games, draws, prizes, fun environment.
Cons: no steady hours.
-Work in various departments.
-Cashier and Fashion sales associate.
-Always assuring customer satisfaction.
-Maintaining the stores presentation.
-Great management, always an open door policy, very understudying, and always do the best they can for their employees.
-The co-workers are like friends and family, it's a second home. All wonderful staff.
-I – more... have not come across a hard part in my job.
-The most enjoyable part about my job is being able to talk to each and every customer while I'm on the clock, and being able to help them find something, create conversations and really getting to know your "regulars" its always a great feeling. – less

Hard Lines Team Leader (Current Employee), Waterloo, ONAugust 28, 2014
There is never a typical day at Target. There is always something new to learn. I have learned a lot about managing a department in a big box store. The most enjoyable part of my is working with the team.

Electronics Team Member (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONAugust 27, 2014
Pros: fff events.
Cons: unrealistic expectations
they expect too much, youre physically done if you work too many hours in a week. fff days are cool if you're actually working. Etl's need a reality check but some are very approachable. Time off easy to obtain as long as you remain on good side of the people in charge. hours are really random not guaranteed.

Merchandise Flow Team Member (Current Employee), Burnaby, BCAugust 24, 2014
Pros: everyone goes on break together.
Cons: overnight shift. (10pm-6am)
We would have a group huddle right at the beginning to discuss our daily goals and targets, recognize team members from previous day, stretch, then prepare to unload truck. After the truck has been unloaded and merchandise properly place in correct locations, the team begins to distribute merchandise to proper aisles. After that task has taken place, – more... the portion of the team begin to place merchandise onto proper shelving and hangers. We continuously repeat this procedure until everything is correctly in place. During this procedure we would maintain cleanliness and proper storing procedures. I learned how to use power equipment. The management team is amazing; very friendly and can effectively communicate with the team. The co-workers bring energy and life to the work place. Everyone was very entertaining, friendly and most importantly productive. The hardest part of the job would probably be the use of new equipment, even the simplest equipment such as the "patel jack." The most enjoyable and most accomplishing feeling would be finishing ahead of schedule and being able to come up with or fix minor projects, tasks and assignments by the team. – less

PLEASE FOR YOUR OWN GOOD DO NOT WORK HERE!
Cashier Team Member (Former Employee), Pickering, OntarioAugust 20, 2014
Pros: you make 10 cents more than minimum wage after 6 months of working there
Cons: everything. hours, management, unfriendly, horrible hr
I worked as a cashier team member at the pickering location. It's all great and friendly when you first start but once you start working with the TL's (your managers) it is absolutely TERRIBLE. They are rude, selfish, and are horrendous at their job. I had to report one of my TL's for literally making fun of me so much it got to the point where I had – more... to call in sick so that he wouldn't bully me anymore and he was my MANAGER! They don't make enough money to give you hours, I wouldn't bother applying! You'll hate it and leave just like everyone else did.

They also give you 10 percent team member discount which literally nothing, and only you and your husband/wife can use it, not your mom, sister, father or child. If you're not married well you're out of luck.

A 16 year old girl who was rude and immature was in charge of all the cashiers and only got that position because one of the TL's loved her. A very known issue, if you apply and get this job, you'll hear about it sooner or later. – less

Productive, okay workplace, very nice employee environment
Flow Team Member (Current Employee), MontrĂ©al, QCAugust 17, 2014
Pros: breakroom, employees and staff
Cons: early morning shifts, management
Everyone says hi or hello to everyone but there are still some boundaries and barriers between coworkers, everyone remains tied to their respective departments. Management are nice however when working with employees, pressure and strain can become an issue. Hardest part of the job is getting there early in the morning. Benefits are not that great but – more... its a great job for students or if your unemployed, like a sort of 'inbetween jobs' kinda thing – less

Contract Merchandising (Current Employee), CalgaryAugust 12, 2014
Pros: independance work own hours
Cons: low wages expectations high for wages paid
merchandising jewelry and sunglasses at Target three times per week. Management has very high expectations for wages paid.
They do not have an understanding of Calgary Market.
Co workers were Target staff overall very helpful.
Hardest part of the job was reporting. Many times reports were completed yet never showed up at head office. Having to repeat – more... over and over. Best part is independence on hours and work – less

money grabbing mean unforgiving and way bad place to work
flow team member (Former Employee), Campbell River, BCAugust 8, 2014
a typical day at work for target Canada is come into work hear about the daily gossip from the team leaders and or upper management and then you get to clock in
I learned that backstabbing is a way of life for target employees who often go behind your back and tell lies about you and then deny any involvement in the process
coworkers are always running – more... people over to get ahead as there has been many openings for team leaders as the turn over rate for a job such as flow team leader or starbucks team leader is so high that everyone wants the job
the hardest day I have ever worked at target was when one of my coworkers who was told to go faster go faster multiple times even though he was just short of running in the first hand ran over my foot with a pallet jack. I then went to the doctor and asked to have it examined for work only to be told that form I had to fill out was to be paid by my work who then refused to pay for it. this is required by law if the ask for a wcb form. – less

Great place to work
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Windsor, ONAugust 8, 2014
Pros: culture, co-workers, management, environment
Cons: lack of hours
Easily the best team i've worked for. Amazing culture, atmosphere, team, and overall environment; everyone is there to help you, not against you like you may have felt at other positions. Biggest downfall is lack of hours, empty promises, and overall lack of consistency in scheduling and hours. Can't exactly blame them, the company doesn't make enough – more... money to support such a large staff. I strictly left due to lack of hours to pursue something with more consistency, (if part-time expect under 10-15 hours) if more hours were present I would most likely still be there. – less

Brand Merchandiser and Sales Floor (Current Employee), Brampton, OntarioAugust 6, 2014
Pros: employee events, contests, fast, fun, friendly culture
Cons: long hours, over working
A typical day at work is mostly routine, with the occasional mix up and add in to your schedule. I've definitely learnt to multi-task more effectively, and work in a fast paced environment when needed.
I've learnt and developed skills I've never had before, such as leadership, and solidified team work skills.
The work environment is great, with amazing – more... co-workers that have the same interests, and common work goals. Easy to relate to, and are all fast, fun, friendly, which makes work enjoyable.
Hardest part of the job is finding a balance between the various tasks you may have to do, and prioritizing what is of the most importance, both to you, as well as to what management thinks/ agrees upon.
However, the employees, and even management try to enforce an open door culture and a fast, fun, friendly environment that does not let employees dread going to work, but rather, something they are excited about. – less
