Pros

Potential growth if that is what you want.

Cons

Amount of workload that is expected to get done. It's not possible. Each year they add more and more change or policy on your plate. You work well over 50 hours a week. No work life balance

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I was promoted internally.. Please train new executives properly. Business college is a joke. The worst part, and part of the reason I resigned was that I had to answer to or work with store managers or exectives that did not know one thing about retail or Target in general. My team felt the same way as well. Target has a lot of loyal employees, it is so demoralizing when there new boss is someone who read best pratice and now thinks they can be a leader. Target is changing and going in a direction that I was not able to follow. I do give a lot of credit and thank Target for molding my career in retail.

    Pros

    Working as a team
    Great coworkers
    Plenty of opportunities to learn new skills
    Flexible scheduling
    Plenty of recognition
    Company tries to value their employees

    Cons

    Experience greatly varies depending on the store, the shift, the manager, etc.
    Incredibly inconsistent with rules and rampant favoritism
    Cliquey environment, especially among management
    Attempts to brainwash you into mindless optimism
    Questionable ethics
    Increasingly unrealistic expectations of an ever-smaller employee base to wring profits
    Speed is valued more than quality or accuracy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more consistent with policies. Don't just make up rules as you go. Pay people based on their performance, not on their seniority. Treat your employees like people. Don't retaliate against people who dare to provide constructive criticism.
