Guest Services/ Cashier (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 27 November 2016
I loved working here, the staff were wonderful individuals and shift-leads and managers were extremely helpful. They taught you most of the things you need to know, but don't be afraid to ask questions, they totally want to help you.
Expect some fun and joking around now and then, even the managers get in on it too...plus the odd prank livens the work day.

GSA (Former Employee) – Trarget Canada – 3 November 2015
it is no surprise that a company with this style of business failed. from the get go the structure of a pyramid scheme was evident. with little room for growth power went to the popular, not the qualified.
GSA (Former Employee) – Red Deer Alberta – 14 October 2015
A typical day at Target was when the self check outs were either running very slow or crashing and it up setted the guests and then they would take it out on the employee's. the thing is that you were always learning new things about the company and getting the necessary feed back from management they gave the support and they always helped out and they didnt hide in the office like the ones at Walmart would. I want target back it was the best company to work for I honestly think that if the company had budgeted for a loss and then it would have come around and would have gotten better and the consumers have got to get their heads out of their butts and allow other competitive companies in it took ex number of years for walmart to get where they are and target would have done the same if given the chance and not pull out after short time it takes time to bounce back and that is with ALL companies big and small.

Guest Service/Cashier (Former Employee) – Bowmanville, ON – 13 July 2015
In the backroom I would start every morning by pulling product from their backroom locations and putting it on the sales floor. Once that was done I would put away the product we received in on the trucks. When working on grocery product I would constantly check for expiry dates and that it was properly organized.
On the in-stocks team I would check for discrepancies between our on-hand count for product in the system and compare it to what we actually had in the store. If the numbers were off, I would correct them.
With the fixture management team as we were closing up the store, I would keep the fixtures organized and tidy to make it easier for potential buyers. When buyers came in I would give them tours and work out pricing on the fixtures with them, set up pick up dates, phone potential buyers to give them any information they needed and occasionally carry out larger items if they were incapable of doing so. I developed better people skills while working there.
My immediate supervisors were very task driven and would jump in and work with us all the time to set an example. They were good at keeping us motivated and giving a morale boost when we needed it. They held team huddles where they would take everyone's opinion into consideration when asking how we could improve our system or daily routines.
For the most part, my co-workers were incredibly hard working and we loved our job. All of us would put a lot of effort into keeping our space in the backroom organized so we could work more efficiently.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with guests andmore... buyers when we were closing. A lot of the people who came in during our time of liquidation were very difficult to deal with. They were often unhappy, but I would do my best to rectify the situations. The most enjoyable part of my job was always knowing exactly what I needed to do and I very seldom needed to ask questions. This was the result of all the training I went through before actually starting.less
Was great to be with a retailer with a proven track record, in the US
Guest Service Agent (Former Employee) – Kamloops, BC – 1 May 2015
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)
Respectful and Helpful Local Management and Corporate Policies

Guest Service Supervisor (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 4 March 2015
My time at Target. was incredible the team members that we have are not just employees we are a family. Going into work feels like a home away from home. Target and the team members that I have worked with for the last couple year really taught me a number of things, how to be a good friend and also how to become a great Leader and with that i would have to say Target is the best job
Cashier and Guest Services Employee (Former Employee) – cashier – 1 March 2015
I learned to embrace and balance a busy work place with ease and multi tasking became second nature in my role. the ability to work with others and being able to work independently was a useful key in my job.
