Current Employee - Store Team Leader

I have been working at Target full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

You control your destiny at Target if you have strong business acumen, are able to get results through your team and stay positive and solutions oriented. I truly enjoy the autonomy and freedom I have to run my store and lead my team to exceed company standards. High importance placed on leadership development for team and self.

Cons

Very metric driven, even when metrics don't mean great service or the right thing for the team/guest. Work/life balance is not great and we teach our teams to expect all leaders to be on the floor at all times, which leads little time for planning.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep expectations realistic while being innovative and cutting expenses. Find a way to give work/life balance back to those in retail. I love retail and I love Target, but it is EASY to get burned out here and I don't want to feel that way, but it is inevitable at this point. Lastly, do away with the Best Team Survey! It is such a hollow, pencil whipped activity at this point and lost its genuine focus on seeking and implementing what the team wants. True feedback isn't given at the executive level because focus stores punish all leaders, not just the focus leader.
