Productive and organized
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

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

this place will kill you slowly
Backroom Team (Current Employee), Richmond Hill, ONJuly 31, 2014
Pros: haha
Cons: everything
start at 6am complete the pulls in 1:30hr (50-58 lists) and push the pulls for the rest of the shift. Annnnnnnd if you really do well you will get your hours cut and switched from 10pm (night shift) to 4am (f@%#ed up shift) and then to 6am. You will have lost so much pride and self confidence if you stay there more than 6 months.

DO NOT WORK HERE
SalesFloor team lead (Former Employee), Delta, BCJuly 25, 2014
Pros: there are none
Cons: everything from management to lack of hours
This a horrible company. Target only cares about making their money back that they lost. They do not care about staffing, staff wellbeing, culture at all. Whatever they say at the interview you will soon come to realize it's all a lie. I worked there since day 1 and it started out really great and slowly got worse and worse. There are other jobs that – more... pay just as little at target so please if you are a decent worker don't do it. – less

Good entry, but no work/life balance
Team Leader (Current Employee), Montreal, QCJuly 22, 2014
Pros: lots of employee activities (ie: food, etc), employee discounts
Cons: lots of pressure, low salary, little work/personal life balance
Lots of pressure to get things done without enough staff. Salary is not equal to job expected. Very little work/life balance. Coworkers are great. Lots of students. Management gets shifted to other stores after a year.

Great team at Target. Management really goes out of their way to make us feel appreciated with pizza days, ice cream "Sundays", etc. Fairly flexible environment.

Overnight Flow Team Member (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABJuly 1, 2014
Pros: good team environment
Cons: no room for internal advancement within the company
We unloaded the truck, stacked pallets, moved the pallets to the floor, stocked the shelves, back stocked and cleaned up the store. I loved the people I worked with however it seemed that the management would not reward those who worked hard for them.

Maintains a safe workplace and high level of professionalism at work.
Sales Floor & Brand Team Member/Cashier (Current Employee), Winnipeg, MBJune 25, 2014
Pros: free varieties of food on weekly events, large food lounches
Cons: part time hours only, sometimes below 30 hours.
There is always a great excitement to come to work every schedule I have with Target because I feel the warm welcome form the management side and a good camaraderie among the staff at Target.
The trainings they openly provides to anyone who requires it and are potentially meant for learning and development is being met all the time. It is fun for me – more... to be working at Target with the management and staff surrounding me, it was my second home away from home. There maybe tough times but I always consider them as challenges that only improve my personality to become the better person I am now. It is the working team and there lovely personalities that drives me from coming back to work with great motivation for growth and development as an individual working for a team at Target. It is exactly the same motivation I have had with my previous employer back in Dubai which is Kellogg,Brown & Root Inc. – less
