You might be looking at that like wow almost all 5 stars. Yes x100. Target did things right. You went to work in the morning and you would always have a group meeting. This was to make sure everyone is feeling okay emotionally and prepare them for the day. Not only that but you would have consent help from everyone. The team leaders did a good job connecting everyone and keeping everyone safe.
This job came with amazing pay, clean environment, benefits after 3 months, amazing hours, + no tax on items for employees. The only downside is you can be let go due to being hospitalized for even 2 days. I understand because they always want active team members. But that's harsh if you get into an accident and lose your job because of it. All and all, 10/10 would work there again.
Full-Time Human Resource Coordinator (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 27 September 2017
Very busy, and budget orientated. However my experience was fun. I had a great time doing HR there. Too bad it closed down in Canada. But If you're new to Human Resources, its a great place to get experience and develop new skill sets.
Cashier, Customer Service, Soft Lines (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 26 September 2017
A typical day at work consisted of ringing items through cash, stocking and facing aisles and keeping lane tidy. Management was ok. Hardest part of the job was working in a "high school like" environment and the most enjoyable part was helping the customers with everything and anything needed.
Discounted items, free food
Shelves never stocked due to poor stock check and delivery scheduling
Good place to work but the customers were very rude
Merchandising Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Etobicoke ON – 22 September 2017
Target was a good company to work for but the customers were always very upset because our stock was constantly empty. The managers and employees were all very nice and welcoming into the Target family. If we had been set up better to be more successful in Canada then I think it would have been a perfect work environment.
got to work overnights a lot with less supervision
The environment was too corporate with too much raw raw for Target.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 14 September 2017
I didn't like my job at Target and was happy to leave. Target has a policy of making everyone a Target person. This is very tiresome with lots of general meetings about motivation etc. Yet management did not follow through with support for the employees.
Backroom Team Member/cashier (Former Employee) – Prince George, BC – 13 September 2017
Back stocking, bringing stock from backroom to the store. I learned to operate a cash register. Management was great. Hardest part of the job for me was going up on ladders. The most enjoyable part of the job was operating the cash register.
Productive and empowering workforce at the warehouses
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 9 September 2017
Working at warehouses with target has been fun, still is. It is the employees right to pick where they want to work from a variety of choices. In addition to this, other job offers are made available for employees who do not wish to work in the warehousing deoertment.
Team Member (Former Employee) – Aurora, ON – 7 September 2017
I loved working here, management was a little bit shaky but overall it was quite great. It's a shame that Target had to close in Canada. Management was extremely accommodating when it came to school responsibilities.
Working at Target was great, they had a great culture and made attempts to make working their more fun. The team was great as well and the merchandise was fun to go through. Jobs were very variable so each day wasn't the same monotonous stuff.
