Pros

Great team members who actually care about the quality of the work they do. Ability to change jobs fairly frequently.

Cons

Payroll versus tasks at the store level gets more ridiculous every month. Health benefits changed this past year to an account based plan that raised my out of pocket cost for a Dr visit from $35 to $95 per visit. I feel like the $179 biweekly medical insurance premium would be better staying in my pocket instead...

Advice to Management

Target truly believes in it's motto of "Expect more, pay Less". Customers think it applies to them, but it is how corporate treats the team. The current corporate drive is to expect more from every team member. At the store level it is not unusual for a sales floor team member to have to help stockers with the push(due to no payroll hours), backup cashier frequently(sue to no payroll hours), help the instock team with the hourly batches(due to no payroll at the store level), while trying to set and fill planograms the planogram team was unable to finish(due to no payroll), all while running like pavlov's dogs to every call box within 60 seconds. Hard to do when you are one of 3 total team members covering the entire sales floor and are on a register. Payroll has been squeezed enough at the store levels, time to squeeze at the corporate level now guys....

    Pros

    The perks of working at Target are the benefits, not talking about health insurance because it could be way better, it is very affordable for families, you don't have to pay per child. The 10% employee discount, friendly co-workers, family life insurance also make it bearable.

    Cons

    Working at store that are in a bad location lead to cut hours. The management needs to reorganize so some teams aren't taking up other teams hours. During slumps the unrealistic goals of the upper management demoralizes the team. Stop focusing on all the numbers and support your team.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being selfish and help your team out. Just because you have a degree doesn't mean you sit on your rear. A good team needs a leadership from upper management not just immediate managers.

    Pros

    Some cool people to work with and nice merchandise

    Cons

    1) Weird hours and unworkable hours like coming in at 4:30 pm-12 am and then coming in the next day at 8:00 am 2) low pay its laughable for the amount of work you do 3) company is into quantity over quality, Target cares about speed over anything. If you do the work but don't get it finished when they want it, you get treated as if you didn't do it at all. 4)Not enough employees on floor. People working multiple sections because Managers cut hours, but still expect things completed in a short time.( ex: zone whole sections in 10 minutes!)Employees on floor have to work multiple sections. 1 person at Customer Service, 1 in Electronics, 1 person in electronics works 3 different sections,1 person in the food court with 6 customers in line. the 1 employee working 3 sections, keeps getting called up for back up cashier because Target only has 3 cashiers working until 4:30. The fitting room person having to answer phones and count customers items is unrealistic. Answering phone calls back to back with about 8 people waiting for a dressing room, folding clothes. So customer has to walk over to another section to get help, taking that employee away from their assigned area, etc, the cycle continues. Way to many managers but store is disorganized.Training to Target is telling you how to do it one time, If you ask again you get treated like your stupid. I will never work for this company again. I worked at two different Target stores and got the same issues.

    Advice to Management

    Better training, more employees on floor, at least two per section, minimum 5 cashiers at all times of the day,better pay. Break up fitting room jobs, one person answers phones, while the other keeps fitting room clean, Electronic person in charge of electronics only! Stop forcing employees to sell red cards. Customer are tired of being asked.
