    I worked at Target

    Pros

    Good pay, easy to talk to management, everyone was very friendly, time off was given whenever you needed it, flexible with your hours, etc.

    Cons

    Your performance was directly related to how many Target credit cards you got customers to open (pointless), when people didn't show up for their shift in a small department (food, photo, garden, carts) you were coerced to fill that shift even if you had no idea what you were doing. Several times I had to work serving food, no training, wholly different POS. Just got dropped off there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't focus so much on the Target credit cards. Listen to your employees on the front lines. "Genchi Genbutsu".. go and see.

    Pros

    - Fellow team members are diverse and fun to work with.
    - The company makes sure you take your breaks on time to ensure you aren't overworked.
    - Typical benefits like insurance as well as good (and sometimes interesting) discounts.
    - Constantly strives for safety.

    Cons

    - Being fast paced, you can be overlooked.
    - Little interaction with guests and/or being in guests way when on the floor.
    - Being flow, the hours are very early.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to the little people. If you have 12 people working in Grocery and 1 in Electronics, the 1 is just as important as the 12, sometimes even moreso since they have to work alone.
