The actual job was Niven but the environment of the workers was a Bit negative for me
Work Experience Student (Former Employee) – Melbourne VIC – 16 June 2018
The work was very normal but for me I didn’t feel comfortable because some workers were a bit rude and I did work with them still with an open mind but I would rather work in a more relaxed environment that way you can achieve more. When I first started there were a couple that were really nice but some werent very inviting to me or helped me.
Productive and enjoyable workplace but with poor management
Floor Staff (Former Employee) – Perth WA – 4 May 2018
Target was a great first job and I found it very easy to get stuck into working and learn about the culture around me, but the management was a bit poor due to them always changing casual shifts after promising multiple of us casual workers a permanent shift at least once a week. I would receive phone calls stating that I haven't come in for a shift when my name was not on the roster for that coming day/week. I also was put on the registers all weekend in peak times after only receiving 3 hours of training nearly 9 months previous.
Big promises, with next to no outcome. The recruitment process was torture especially for the role that I was applying for. Would not recommended working here. Long hours and no recognition what so ever. Customer service is pretty dismal, and the team are there for the money, not the experience.

Do not want to work for another large retailer after my experience with them
Duty Manager (Former Employee) – QLD, Western suburbs – 6 April 2018
Ridiculous expectations, and when you have performed above and beyond you receive no recognition. They require a strict adherence to policy and procedures even if they are not efficient or if they are redundant. They seem to want potatoes working for them that will dot the I's and cross the T's even if they are terrible at their role.
Retail Assistant (Casual) (Former Employee) – Perth WA – 24 March 2018
learned everything to do with customer service knowing how to stock manual handling things a typical day was serving the customer and selling/ stocking products lovely staff members managers were bit hard as I was the new girl and sometimes unfair with my job
I only worked here for two weeks for work experience within the two weeks I saw that the place was under managed with the manager not even being there most of the time and by the back workers taking stock home for their own families. JKY
Retail Assistant (Former Employee) – Queensland – 11 February 2018
Target offers its employees stable work. There is the ability to develop further skills and progress to management roles but it didn't seem very common. Work culture was quite good but job roles are quite boring as there isn't much movement of staff between areas within the store.
Retail Assistant- work experience (Former Employee) – Ballarat VIC – 29 January 2018
I enjoyed my time here, even though it was only work experience, I gained experience in the retail field. I enjoyed the learning I did and the people that were there were very helpful. I’d recommend starting out somewhere like here as a first job, it gives you an insight of working somewhere bigger
