    I worked at Target full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There are a lot of good people in the lower ranks. They work very hard. Have a lot of experience and are also very helpful. These employees happen to be Target's most loyal customers also.

    Cons

    The people that have experience have no authority.

    The people who have authority have no experience.

    Target's management culture is based on a clique rather than performance. That is why after a "New" Store opening sales get stagnated and start dropping.

    Enthusiasm is contagious, but you can't fake it. Having Target employees go around asking customers "Can I help you find something", at every corner of the store gets annoying for the shoppers. And comes across as fake, there is a fine line between being helpful and being annoying. Curiously enough I have only seen this tactic being implemented at this store and not others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Productivity is being obstructed by the Executive Leaders simply by failing to understand what leadership is all about. The difference between your # 1 store in sales and your # 2 is leadership.

    And a huge part of leadership is adequate training. How can individuals tell others what to do when they even don't know what to do. Productivity slows down, payroll grows, profit shrinks.

    Best advice to management "Undercover Boss". See it for yourself.
