Current Employee - Executive Store Intern in Plantation, FL
Current Employee - Executive Store Intern in Plantation, FL

I have been working at Target as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Training and development, culture, team atmosphere, organized system, and reputable and respected company

Cons

Many expectations, disjoint between store and corporate, long hours during busy seasons, dealing with guests.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have executives at corporate who make plans for the store spend a month or more in a real Target store to understand the impact of decisions. Focus on having less waste when throwing away items and implement more recycling and green initiatives.

    I have been working at Target full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some of the people you work with become some of your closest friends. The company at one time provided great benefits, but those are a thing of the past. It used to be a "FFF" culture (fast, fun and friendly), but now it is "expect more pay less" which is the company's mission for their team members. Along with One mission One Voice One this and that, but it means one person getting rich the CEO

    Cons

    Cons, well I just don't have enough time or space here to list them all. They don't care about the team member, in any way, only profitable sales, period. You work your ass off for an insult of a pay increase once a year. Usually range from 0 to maybe 40 cents an hour, if you are considered outstanding. They use to be much better. Medical and dental benefits lowered in coverage but premiums higher.. Staff cut to a bare minimum/ hours cut/ workload tripled. Its like working in a slave labor camp. Most guest complaints are not enough team members around to help. Most of upper management are still wet behind the ears (not all) and are on major power trips because of their positions. Most of them have the knowledge to do their jobs, but that big inflated head keeps getting in the way of them having any people skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your ego back in check, o.k. its only Target. Treat people as equals, with respect. Yes, you bring the big bucks home, and that is what should make you happy, not taking away someone's lively hood just because you can. You get back what you give. You know who you are.

    I worked at Target full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    10% off everything in the store

    Cons

    was hired full time and as time went on they hired more employees and gave those of us who worked there less and less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take a close look at your employees. watch their everyday faces to determine how happy they are. you are failing at this ctore. maybe it is the managment. check out the empolyee turnover in this store.
