    Pros

    Great people to work with. Good management (depending on the store) Getting to meet lots of different people. flexible schedule. they occasionally give you snacks and food.

    Cons

    Very repetitive work. Organizing a store at 12 am is not fun. Closing shifts suck. Rude customers rush hours only a 10% discount for empkoyees. They promote based on appearance a lot more on actual skill and time working there.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more within the inside to management positions. cross train the employees that have been there for a while in all different departments.


  2. Good some opportunities, but in general not bad

    Pros

    Enjoy my coworkers. It's a clean and safe work environment. The discount is great. Flexibility of vacations is wonderful as long as you don't need to travel at thanksgiving or Christmas. There are lots of different departments to work in to keep things new and exciting, it's like changing jobs without changing jobs.

    Cons

    Long and irregular hours. All of the team dislike working thanksgiving and late at night. We'd prefer a retail environment that closed at 9 pm.

    Advice to Management

    Close the store earlier or have a dedicated night team and day team. Having people work till 1am then back to work at 7am isn't good for their personal health. Also don't keep the team more than an hour past close ever! Regardless of the work that needs to be done, it's rarely those people's fault and yet they're the ones that are punished flow, pricing, pog and other dayside teams just leave at the end of their shift. Lastly, Stay closed on holidays or close early on holidays such as New Year's Eve and forth of July to let the team have a better work/life balance

    Pros

    The new information they guided me through helped me pickup a new valuable skill set.

    Cons

    Dealing with sick, angry people all day takes its toll after a while, then the apathy sets in for even the most positive people.

    Target is a caring environment where you can express yourself while getting a hands on job.
