Pros

-Co workers were mostly pleasant.
-Super nice managers, though they were pretty uninvolved.
-Clear expectations
-Store security always has your back.

Cons

-Cashiering is a nightmare. If an old lady needs to count her change, your speed will go into "red zone." If a lady with kids fumbles with her wallet, "red zone." If you're in the "red zone," you get "coached."
-If you don't get enough people to open "red card" accounts, you get coached.
-Long, long shifts spent doing nothing but cleaning up.
-Customers at Target always seem really angry. I do not remember a moment where a child was not screaming at the top of their lungs somewhere in the store.
-For some reason, the fitting room attendant has to also be the store phone operator, which adds to the chaos of the already chaotic fitting room.

Advice to Management

Cap the chaos.

    Pros

    Lots of responsibility and autonomy

    Cons

    Impossible work loads, Ineffective on-boarding and training, sink or swim atmosphere for new hires, No work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    All of the efforts you spend on recruiting top talent are wasted if you abandon new hires when it comes to training. In store training is not effective. You need to standardize the experience to ensure new ETLs get even more training than the interns.

  2. Not the best place to work.

    Pros

    Flexible with your schedule and you have the ability to focus more on other things. It is probably better than some super stores.

    Cons

    Terrible pay and rude customers. Anyone beneath the managers does not get enough respect. Closing shift employees always lose hours out of there schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees
