"I've been working at Target for five months. At Target, you have the ability to be cross-trained. Meaning if you want to work in several different departments, you can. Which is what I recommend new hire's to do after three months. The overall environment is friendly and clean. Management is reasonable and pleasant."

"Act as if working yourself to death every day would be no problem for you."

"It's incredibly dull work. I can maintain it fairly easily on a good day, but my bad days usually arise when I just can't stand the monotony of the routine or the utter pointlessness of the job itself."

"I would make the day-to-day tasks easier to keep up with and try to ensure that each TM is pulling their own weight in the department. Other than that I would try to have more cross-training between departments so others in the store are aware of my area's concerns."
