Approves of CEO

Pros

Fast paced work environment, room for personal development, ability to transfer between stores and departments, friendly staff, easy to meet expectations, worked around class schedule.

Cons

Not enough pay, not enough hours, deal with irate customers, limited ability to move up, uniforms are lame, cutting jobs and hours.

Advice to Management

Store management needs to communicate better so their employees are not confused by what their tasks are. Management is often short-sighted and does not see the big picture.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should really try and sit down with the little people at least once and hear what it is that they have to say instead of just listening to the store managers.

    I have been working at Target full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    For the first 2 months as an ETL I was put in a classroom style intensive training program where I learned all aspects of the business. The training was incredibly valuable especially for someone coming right out of college. Perfect job for someone looking to have a career in retail management

    Cons

    The pay seemed great for just out of college, but then I found out that my standard hours would be 7-5 a minimum, and then 2-12 one night a week. During holiday season you could work till 3am cleaning up the store from the night before. Plan to be exhausted all of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that the trainers you partner people with are truly invested in being a trainer. Also, 50 miles is very far to transfer someone. In some areas that is a 2 hour commute in traffic and causes people to leave that would have stayed.
