Pros

Great people to work with. It is easy work.

Cons

Tend to play favorite when giving recognition and promotions. They keep raising the work load and qualirity of work but takes away recognition and other incentives to work harder (doesn't make sense).

Advice to Management

Don't take away incentives and raise the work load. Cross train EVERYONE in the store not just certain people and always relying on them.

    Pros

    The tasks are easy to learn, the employee discount is nice and there's a good bit of flexibility when it comes to scheduling, but...

    Cons

    there is no accountability when it comes to management. There are several TLs and ETLs at my store who very rarely do any work and instead pawn it off onto their respective teams. These cliques also lead to a ton of gossip and drama throughout the entire store, affecting morale, efficiency, ultimately causing problems store-wide. And because the supervisory team is so buddy-buddy, they will also attempt to promote one another rather than promote someone who isn't in their little "group." This, in combination with the above, makes it almost impossible for anyone who isn't a supervisor to advance. HR is in this clique as well, so taking these concerns (which are shared by a good number of my coworkers), would only get me in trouble. Target is also notorious for adopting for part-time only positions, with supervisors and above being the only ones with full-time schedules. This, in combination with Target only paying slightly above the minimum wage, means that there is no way to get by unless you have another source of income. While part-time employees are eligible for some health benefits, they don't kick in until 6-12 months after your hire date. And vacation hour accrual, which can take a year or more depending on hours worked. The company claims to care about its employees, but I fail to see how paying them unlivable wages and expecting them to work ridiculous hours counts as "caring."

    Advice to Management

    Have more ways for TMs to express concern outside of the store to reduce retaliatory behavior and hold supervisors more accountable. Also, pay your employees more. The CEO made $19,707,107 in 2011, so why should we, the ones who make the company function at the store level, only be making $12k-15k a year?

    Pros

    They are there for you and will help you through most situations that come up, decent pay, and benefits plus a discount

    Cons

    They do require a lot out of you, expect you to have everything done in as little time as possible, when they do make a mistake it is you who pays for it.
