productive
is a great place to work. You get to meet variety of cultures. Working retail makes it hard for holiday season. Flexible with schedule morning and nights and weekends.

Beware
Management were biased if they didn't like you. Lots of workplace politics, creating a hostile work environment. If you go to HR, you can expect retaliation.

It was a good place to work
They had very flexible work hours for students and the pay is some of the highest in retail. Target is def a good starter job. Working there was a good balance of fun and feeling accomplished that you were able to assist customers.

My review
Sometimes it depends on what managers you have. When I first started there we had excellent managers who worked side by side with you and communicated very well. Can't say its the same now, but that's just something that happens in retail, managers change out alot. There are plenty of things I've learned and am better for since starting there like about customer service goals, pushing products in every department, beauty in general was an entire learning experience in itself, and promotional skills.

Low pay, no appreciation, high turnover. Clean environment, decent employee discount
Some of the HR department are unfair. All in all ok place to work. Don't count on a lasting job. Don't let them overwork you and plan to be laid off when the work slows down.
ProsClean and colorful store, employee discounts, flexible hours.
ConsHigh turnover, low pay, no ful time unless your in management.

Over worked
I work performing a great deal of front end task and duties (e.g. guest service, guest service assistant, etc.) The titles, tasks and duties are overworked and underpaid.

Depends on individual store culture
Job experience greatly depends on the store you work at, and on how well you interact with your co-workers and managers. I had a great experience in my first store, and a less enjoyable experience at my second store but the job was great nonetheless.

Questions And Answers about Target

Why did you leave your job at Target?
Asked Mar 15, 2017
I left Target due to poor management and a lack of care for their "Team Members". It seems that no one in management communicates whatsoever. They completely disregarded my availability schedule and then I was left to scramble to find people to cover shifts that I was assigned even though it wasn't my problem to fix. There was a good 2 months I was scheduled to work the back room/stock shelves... I was hired as a Guest Advocate and only trained in this area. When I first got scheduled in those areas I told HR and the person that creates the schedule that I was not trained in that area and didn't feel comfortable working those shifts. The store manager kept me placed in those areas and I felt extremely uncomfortable and felt I couldn't speak up because I was a new hire. Once that got straightened out, for the entire 8 months I worked there I had to go in and have someone fix my schedule because I would be scheduled while I was in class or out of my availability. I spoke to my ETL, HR and front end manager about these issues and was always brushed off. It got to a point where I resented checking the schedule because I knew I would have to say something about it. To go along with poor scheduling, at times I would be the only cashier anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. When I would ask to go on my 15 minute break or meal at the time I was scheduled to take it, I was always told I could wait and some times would end up just skipping it because by the time there was someone to cover, I was close to finishing up my shift. Another reason I left was the fact they neglected the fact that I was a college student. By this, I mean that whenever we had a school break (Thanksgiving, winter break, spring break, any time the campus would be closed), I would put in time off 2 MONTHS in advance and put in the additional comments that since campus would be closed, I would have no where to stay as I live out of state and dorms would be closed. Not only did they deny each request, I was told I had to talk to the front end managers and figure out something as it was "inconvenient". Not only did I make sure to submit any form of request months in advance, I also included details why I couldn't work a certain time frame; not having a place to live seems pretty legit to me. Overall, management doesn't care about the people below them. it is sad because I used to be happy to work there and it was my favorite store to shop at but after this work experience my view has drastically changed.
Answered Mar 24, 2020
I quit because like other people, they cut my hours and expected me to do the same amount of work in a short amount of time. So, I realized that it wasn't worth staying. The job is easy enough, most coworkers are cool but there are better jobs out there.

What is the interview process like at Target?
Asked Feb 25, 2016
So I'm actually going to be a new closing TL at Target after almost half a decade at Wal-Mart. I got a phone call 4 days after applying to set up a phone interview, did the phone interview 2 days after that, which lasted for about a minute. I was told on the phone that I would be interviewing with an ETL by beginning of next week. Due to current work conflicts, I actually interviewed with the SD in the time frame and asked general questions about my capabilities in retail and was offered a job on the spot.
Answered Jan 31, 2020
I applied online and about a week later I received an email saying to schedule an interview. The day of the interview I waited for roughly 30 minutes for the lady that was going to interview me. She finally came to the waiting area and she apologized for making me wait. She was very nice and asked about my work history and why I left those jobs, my work availability, we talked about the job itself and answered my questions, and then she started to ask me questions from a sheet that she had. The questions she asked were like scenarios and what I would do in that certain situations. After all that she offered me the job and told me about the pay.

What would you suggest Target management do to prevent others from leaving?
Asked Mar 16, 2017
Get rid of the payroll bonus that the store director gets. They get enough money already and that metric consumes them and they cut hours everywhere. Just get rid of executive bonuses all together.
Answered Feb 14, 2020
Hire managers who are willing to work with their emplyees and help them grow. Not have a manager who micro manages you , disrespects you, and a manager that you can't address a his because they will take it personal and make life very difficult for you and make you quit.

How are the working hours at Target?
Asked Jul 17, 2016
I was hired to work around 25 hours a week. My first 10 weeks the average was 34. Then a sudden drop to 18, slowly building back to 34. I have open availability and bounced back a lot faster than employees that do not. I expect January and February to be dismal. Overall I will probably average the 25 I was hired for.

Does target drug test
Asked Jul 7, 2016
Yes they have a plate of all different kinds of drugs and test to see if you can work while high because everyone else is always high. My supervisor is the biggest pill head I've ever seen. So no more drug tests unless your hurt on the job.
Answered Mar 30, 2020
Not during the interview process, but they will drug test you if you get hurt on the job.
