I have been working at Target

Pros

*Good job at recognizing employees when you do a good job
*Flexible schedule
*easy to request time off
*Performance Based raises each year
*Good team oriented culture, everyone helps out
*Fun environment
*Decent Pay (Just average-probably only a dollar or two above minimum wage)

Cons

*can be very stressful, (especially during holiday season)
*Managers goals and expectations can sometimes be unrealistic
*sometimes raises are not distributed evenly or fairly(Favoritism)
*hours get cut a lot after Christmas time
*No bonuses (other than yearly review, which is nothing special)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

This job is excellent at recognizing its workers when they do well. They show their appreciation in many ways ie. free food, drinks, T-shirt, gift cards, etc. However, MONEY MOTIVATES!!! Offer better raises, if team members were rewarded more monetarily, they would have incentive to work much harder. Free iTunes cards, Starbucks, and target t-shirts only go so far.

    Pros

    Coworkers are usually good people

    Cons

    They rather hire from outside than promote within. You're pretty much stuck where you are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the promotion to the people that are already doing the job.

    Pros

    They are actively involved and supportive of community involvement

    Cons

    Decisions are made about performance without a chance to improve. Once they make up their mind they do not change their mind, no matter how much the employee has improved their performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more of an effort to improve your team instead of focusing on their replacement.
