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.

    A great company in theory, but losing its focus due to profit and sales missteps

    Pros

    There are some great opportunities to succeed. You'll go far if you're a female, diverse, or pretty...oh, it helps if you have no idea how to do your job too.

    Cons

    Extreme "Up or Out" culture at every level. Very politcal.

    Advice to Management

    The C-Level Management needs a reality check of what its like to run a store with the resources they give store management.
