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

Former Employee - Production Worker

I worked at Walmart full-time

Pros

I'm a very hard worker and also a people person

Cons

I hate working alone it's depressing because I love to be around people

Advice to Management

There all awesome
