I worked at Target full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Opportunity for movement which developed a breadth of knowledge

Cons

Too much focus on personal relationships for advancement

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Celebrate the differences in people, focus on building on strengths more rather than the developing weaknesses and remember that a relationship doesn't mean being a best friend to support a promotion.

    Former Employee - Cashier in Torrance, CA

    I worked at Target part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    My superiors were amazing... the overall atmosphere and knowing the store so well, as I am an extreme Target-girl, really made me feel like I was right at home.

    Cons

    The discount wasn't that great, being that %10 was CA's tax. The weekend crowds were expected but back-up for the front lanes wasn't always called for and the place would be jammed in no time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing! Don't take employees for granted.
