Pros

company culture, information that is learned and achieved over a short period of time. As well as good compensation and benefits with room for salary negotiation. Company facilities are very tidy and well-kept. Weekly meetings allow you to feel engaged with the business process that is going on. The experience that you receive here is something a lot of people do not encounter at a young age, making this great opportunity to go through.

Cons

Senior Management lack of transparency between employees. Never are seen on the floor, and then provide you with feedback based on hearsay. perception is reality.

Advice to Management

Less ego, more visibility.

    Pros

    I liked it cause they were always trying to develop you professionally and encouraging you to try new ways to stream line processes.

    Cons

    contract positions stay strictly contract. They won't bring you on permanently even if there is a need. It's cheaper for Target to keep on contracting positions out because they don't have to pay for benefits, health, ect.
    Very clickish environment, felt like I was back in high school trying to impress the popular kids. It takes a long time before people open up to you and become of one them.

    Advice to Management

    Overall a good company, but don't miss out on a great employee and not hire them on a permanent basis to save money.

    Pros

    Company provided a lot of mechanisms to promote a positive work environment. Expectations were usually low and easy to exceed. Lots of locations to transfer to, and very flexible schedule. Great for students or part time job.

    Cons

    Leadership was often young, untrained, over confident, and imperious. Also, being a corporate setting, it was hard to feel able to contribute any ideas or changes.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like guests and not like underlings and you'll have better results.
