Featured Review

Former Employee - Fulfillment Expert

I worked at Target part-time for less than a year

Pros

Very simple tasks, many employees around the store knew where items were if you were not sure, fast pace, scheduled all breaks and lunches for covid and enforced people to follow the schedule.

Cons

I personally did not like getting scheduled too much. Benefits were not as good, about 10-20%

Advice to Management

Great management team, was respectful when I was hired and when I left

Current Employee - Store Associate

I have been working at Kohl's part-time for less than a year

Pros

Great people who really care about their employees

Cons

Benefits don't kick in for a while.
