    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    Good discounts and great store. Management treats employees well.

    Cons

    Company very uptight about certain things in the pharmacy that don't matter and take away from the quality of patient care provided. Eg. "No registration pad on the pharmacy front counter." Minute things that don't matter

    Also, the pharmacy system is the worst I've seen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on patient care than stupid detail that has nothing to do with patient care. The computer system is super backward compared to competitors such as Walgreens, etc

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

    Pros

    Phenomenal resources to help you do your job were available to me starting with a six week on-boarding/training. There was a great discount and offers available to employees. Target has a unique culture which I found refreshing after 11 year of active duty military service.

    Cons

    There was no time to use the resources available to you to accomplish your job. The constant turnover was detrimental to accomplishing anything whatsoever. The HR Executive Team Leader was one of the most judgmental and unpleasant people I have ever had the misfortune to be on a leadership team with. The first store manager played favorites and was a do more with less leader. She was fired but by that time I was fed up with the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire quality people and pay them! Also, don't expect miracles in 4th quarter in retail....that only happens in the movies. Accurately represent the job....don't call something an Executive position when part of that person's job is to throw away trash every night.
