A one year detour in life that could have been more unpleasant

I worked at Target

Pros

The atmosphere was surprisingly pleasant. People were pleasant to work with. If you showed up consistently and on time, you really didn't have any problems.

Cons

There is not a whole lot of mental stimulation associated with stocking shelves, etc. Being stuck in a windowless, climate controlled environment is not the most fun thing in the world.

    I have been working at Target full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Clean, bright, colorful, good advertising. Decent 401K. Easy job if you're a 'team" member. Just put stuff away. Walk-around. Act like you care.

    Cons

    Typical turnover problems. Everyone leaves quickly. Always changing merchandise around. Poor selection. Would not work here again....Everyone I know has quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work in a store and stop acting like you are above everyone.

    Retail is difficult in general. Corporate struggles to set up its stores for success.

    I worked at Target full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Overall Good Benefits
    Interacting with co-workers

    Cons

    Work/life balance difficult
    Stressful retail environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to understand how much team members are really going through at the store level and how much their stress (unhappiness) can affect the business as a whole (guest service, retention)
