Mediocre experience full of "best practice" BS with no clear direction

I worked at Target full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Discount, lively atmosphere, managing some interesting Team Members

Cons

Retail working hours in general (but I will admit that one weekend on/off for management was nice), lack

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Innovate! Don't just dictate and spew the continual "best practice" BS. Promote those who are truly the best fit for the ETL/STL roles (and not those who have just been in the previous required roles for the required 18 months, etc.).

    The 18-month department rotation is only an excuse to not promote people until they want to

    I worked at Target full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Stores are generally liked by consumers. Great retail technology, especially for Assets Protection.

    Cons

    If you are an Executive Team Leader, district management will advise you have to be in your department for 12-18 months before rotating to a new one. However, I rotated within several departments in under a year and others who tried were told they could not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If employees are performing at a high level, don't throw the "18-month" time frame in their face to avoid telling them why you won't rotate them to a new department so they can train quicker.

    I have been working at Target part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Management and other team members were generally friendly. When I had a problem I could get it resolved pretty easily.

    Cons

    Work environment was just okay. They like to claim that they pay you more than other places but in reality they would pay you less if they could.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your employees better and don't think of them as just another ant in the colony.
