    Educational

    Executive Team Leader - Hardlines (Current Employee)

    ProsDays fly by, you are surrounded by a great team and culture, there is opportunity for growth, the benefits are excellent, a lot of learning potential, not stuck in a daily routine, engage and inspire others, give back to the community

    ConsI think work-life balance would be the biggest issue. Days are not 8 hrs, but rather often 10 hours, if not more (and you do not get any overtime). You also have to work 1 on 2 weekends.

    Neutral

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGives reasonable breaks and team culture is good. Raise every six months and communication between team members is good.

    ConsDepends on workers and managers. Barely any chance for promotion. Work and life balance is tough during busy seasons. May work closing shifts and opening shift next day.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTeam leaders could be more friendly.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Target Canada over projected sales

    Price Accuracy (Current Employee)

    ProsEarly hours are great. Team members all pull together to get the job done. Very clean store and doesn't smell like Walmart or Zellers. People compare it to both of them as well as Target in the states and that is not fair.

    ConsWas hired full time.Hours have been cut by 50%.ie:50 hrs workload 12 hours scheduled.I have been deceived. Hope it all comes around or they will lose a lot of good people. Not enough selection(softlines) for older people or over sized people. Not enough men's shoes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompare workload to scheduling.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
