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

"Amazing Company"Nov 24, 2021

It is a mega company.
