Optical Receptionist (Former Employee), Vancouver, BCJuly 2, 2015
I worked here as a teaching assistant and the most enjoyable part of the job was assisting in the education of special needs children. It was enjoyable to assist with their learning and see how well they did over the academic year.

Sometimes fun place to work that suffered from some management issues.
Stockroom Worker (Former Employee), Pickering, ONJune 26, 2015
Pros: Great work place culture.
Cons: Several bad supervisors.
Target was a relatively decent place to work. I learned a lot from there and genuinely enjoyed the people I worked with. The job itself wasn't very difficult but it was just hard enough to keep me from getting bored. Where the company suffered, however, was in it's management of staff. Several of the supervisors had a "do as I say, not as I do" policy of teaching and made many decision that didn't seem to be based in logic. That's not to say that all the higher ups were bad people. Many of them were great workers and viewed their teams as co-workers, rather than subordinates. People like them were great to work with and taught me quite a bit.

Productive, friendly, inclusive workplace
Flow Team Member (Former Employee), Ottawa, OntarioJune 20, 2015
Pros: Very social workplace, inclusive, friendly and easygoing
Cons: Inconsistent work hours
Target Canada, before it was shut down, was a joy to work with. The team was friendly, caring, struck a perfect balance between playing around and working, often socializing with customers and helping them as needed. Co-workers were just as friendly as managers, and were very willing to help out or casually talk during their jobs.

A typical day at work is usually very slow-paced, easygoing to both veterans and newcomers in the retail environment, talking to customers was a joy to do, especially when it came to helping them, though casual chatter with them was also fun to do.

The most enjoyable part of the job was socializing. When I spoke with customers and fellow team members, I felt like I was getting along and making new friends, as well as helping when I could. The harder part, however, was trying to help customers locate something I have not seen. As I usually worked around toys and electronics, I know nothing of sporting goods, furnishing, or health care products, which made me feel bad, but I could always direct them to a Target co-worker who knew the store better than I could.

The one thing I didn't exactly enjoy, however, was the fact that, for most of the job, hours were fairly inconsistant, and it was hard to keep on top of them, even if looking at the schedule, since I enjoy a consistant schedule instead of a constantly-changing schedule.

Heavily Political - not results focussed
Head of Merchandising Process and Operations (Current Employee), Toronto, ONJune 12, 2015
Company values how you manage upwards more than the results you deliver. If you can be political and have more superficial skills than any substance you will thrive at this organization.
