Target is a well known company for looking after/satisfying its customers, but they also look after their employees just as much, love working here, such a great environment

Usually just serving customers and clearing stock. It teaches you skills on how to work fast while also helping customers, I would highly recommend working at Target.

Stocking shelves each day, cleaning, answering phone calls every now and then, to receive enquiries from co-workers. Not much was really attended for when doing the 80hrs experience.

Target was my first retail experience, and it was just the start I needed. The hours were a bit much as a school student, however, the shifts were usually very enjoyable.

Very tiring, the employers overworked me and my friends. Day consisted of cutting boxes and stacking merchadise with only an hour break, while our working hours were around 8 hours

during my 2 weeks at target for work experience, my job was to go on the floor and help people on what they were looking for. And also was also put out the warehouse to help out the deliveries that came into the store.

It was more or less an enjoyable workplace to be in; the staff were quite friendly and were willing to help out with any issues that I had. Being a bit of a cleaning freak, there was a lot of opportunities to tidy up products, however their management is a bit loose in terms of cleanliness. I really enjoyed working at the change rooms where a lot of people commute, I became engrossed with looking after people's shopping and giving it back when they came out alongside reorganizing returned clothing; time flew by really quickly when you're enjoying work. I do wish however that there was a more effective way of preventing theft in the change rooms as I once or twice found ripped packaging whilst I was cleaning, although I believe that it was significantly decreased when I continuously checked people's belongings or shopping despite the annoyed glances.
Pros
Hospitable environment, friendly staff
Cons
Lack of security

The management has gotten worse each year due to managers being fired for theft and not being fair towards employees. Can be hard to get a shift due to the store not having enough money to pay staff.
Pros
friendly staff
Cons
management is not good

working in Target is pretty exciting, you always have to be active and on your feet. you have to enjoy hands-on work and you have to learn to multitask at the same time. while working in target I learned a lot of things especially I enriched my product knowledge and adapted the manner how you should handle a hard customer while having a smile on your face. in the store, all the other staff was helpful and understanding.

Management is absolutely insane, put so much pressure on employees. No shifts are given out, no staff which leaves each employee with 4 departments to clean. Mostly the management tend to make it a worse experience. Absolutely no staff incentives. Definitely not a place to work at for lifetime.
Pros
Flexible hours
Cons
Poor management, no staff incentives, too much pressure.

-Work was pretty fun, typically busy but fun. -I learn how to push a big trolley. I also learnt that if you were new, there will always be that one person who legit doesn't like you for no reason. My first day at work, my manager told me to go with this person and bring out the big trolley for the boxes and I was struggling to push the trollys because I didn't know how to operate it, I even asked her to help me but she didnt even help. Untill I had a different co-worker shoe my how to put the big trolley. -The management was alright -My co-workers were amazing to work with. Well except for one person. -The hardest job would be moving a lot of boxes alone. -My most enjoyable job was ripping the cardboard boxes and just being able to do something at work.
Pros
Met new people
Cons
Had someone not like me for no reason
