Worked for target for 4 years in the soft lines department (apparel and accessories). Really liked it the first 4 months of me working there and then started to hate it, but stayed because I didn’t have many options. I would not recommend anyone to work here, it’s honestly a mess. Management is nasty, customers are nasty. Target expects one person to do the job of 5 people for pay that’s not even considered competitive anymore. Many nights I came home crying from stress because of that place. Target has completely changed my personality.

I used to enjoy life and was very optimistic, now I absolutely hate everything. Sleep schedule messed up. I get annoyed quickly. I have been working retail longer than Target, so yes I’m burnt out but Target by far is the worst job that I’ve had. Do yourself a favor and don’t bother applying if you want to save yourself. Your mental health will suffer here.

The process I went through before getting hired:
- Submitted my application
- About a week later I got an email saying that I got accepted to move onto the video interview
- Recorded myself answering the questions they had for the video interview & sent it in
- A week after that I get a call from HR at the store telling me that I got the job, what position I’d have, & if I was available to come in for orientation on a certain date

The process after getting hired:
- Go into the store for my scheduled orientation where they have you fill out forms, watch onboarding videos, ask you questions, you can ask them question, you get your training schedule/first few regular shifts, get your work login number, & have to do some trainings on the computer/zebra device.
- Your first 2 days are your designated “training” days where you will be tagging along with someone for your entire shift. It will be overwhelming & you’ll get a lot of info given to you. You probably won’t remember everything & that’s okay. The more you get used to things the easier it will get to process/remember stuff.
- After those 2 training days you’re “on your own” basically in a sense that someone won’t be with you the entire time. But if you ever need help or are confused (which you most likely will be) you can always ask other team members for help or ask them questions.

It is retail, so alot of the time it’s going to be hard & overwhelming & frustrating & stressful & all that. However, the more you get used to things, the easier it’ll be. Once you get a routine down, it’ll be easier to manage your responsibilities. Some people will say it will take 1 month, but honestly I think it’ll take 2-3 until you’re REALLY comfortable & got a routine down. If you have good coworkers it definitely helps with having a good time at Target. Also if you have good management/leads too. Target partners with DailyPay so you can get your money before your actual pay day if you are in a pinch & need it. One thing I can say about working at Target, they are very flexible with people’s schedules/availability & it’s a decent stable job. If you wanna cross-train to learn other departments within the store there’s opportunities for that too. If you’re looking for a stable job that can work around your schedule, Target could be a match for you.
