Sales/Stock Person (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 May 2018
I first started at target by working overnights which was from 10pm-630am or more.. Basically unloading the truck and filling up shelves for the opening hours of the store the next day. Few months later I was pushed to the opening hours/closing hours Working in the backroom a lot by using a "PDA'' gun where someone would make a ''pull'' and someone would read the item details and bring the item out to the customer or to fill carts of items that can be brought out to the sales floor.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Saint-Laurent, QC – 9 November 2017
The environment was very friendly. Everyone was quite energetic. I learned a lot about customer service and how to balance that with meeting certain quotas. The management was very good in my opinion. The hardest part of the job was dealing with certain types of customers. The most enjoyable part of the job was the great people I got to meet and work with.
Reverse Logistics/Receiving (Former Employee) – Vernon, BC – 6 November 2017
Target was a great place to work. All the staff were great to work with, My job was fun as a Reverse Logistics/Receiver. In the mornings I would have get all the products ready to be returned to the venders and also help with receiving some days. I would also be returning stuff like clothes and other seasonal items to the distribution centre's.
Brand Merchandising Team Member (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 6 November 2017
I loved working with Target Canada. They had good values and employed hard working people. Shame it didn't last, due to poor logistics practices. We tried really hard to help the store succeed but it was impossible as a whole.
FLOW TEAM MEMBER (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 5 November 2017
I only took the job with Target because I haven't worked for over a year. Truth is the problem wasn't with the storm themselves it was the management who didn't know what to do. Overall it wasn't the worst job I ever had but I'm glad I'm not there anymore.
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 30 October 2017
always trying to catch up the backlogs, boss expects employees to over work at the both weekends, endless works in pending, a very good place to learn some new skills and experience especially to new bees.
Senior Team Leader Hardlines (key holder) (Former Employee) – Corner Brook, NL – 18 October 2017
Target had such a high level of engagement from its team members. We felt like a family. From dealing with executives, to the new cashier, everyone had pride in their company and every one felt like they were part of the bigger picture and family that Target had built.
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.
