    I worked at Target

    Pros

    Team Member discount of 10% off on store merchandise.
    Friendly peers (same level employees)
    Ability to create relationship with store guests - that recognize you based on their frequency of shopping at the store.

    Cons

    -Management is hired from career fairs; in which most are 21-22 years of age and have little experience in the retail or management field.
    -It seems that management focuses more on what you are doing wrong; than what you are doing right. Which means that their recognition program is very weak.
    -Promotions are very slim. You can work day in and day out; and only be criticized for what wasn't done right.
    -Management finds employees that are hard working; and brain-wash them into believing that they will be promoted and tell them "This captainship will help with your development; and when it comes time for an interview - you will have great stories during the interview" And once you go to these interviews; they only tell you that your hardwork hasn't yet paid off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a huge laundry-list of my disappointments of this company and I hope that the CEO and management will listen to their employees based off the "opinion survey" conducted annually and actually implement what their employees are saying.

    -10% Discount and a extra 5% if you get the target debt card
    - Free flu shot for employees
    - Extremely friendly co-worker and very respectful
    - Team work
    - Management team is GREAT!!!
    - Lots of hours 30-39 per week

    Cons

    - Only $7.75 per hour ( Team Members), extra $0.25 for overnight flow (UGH)
    - Can not get discount if you use your debt card/ credit card
    - Very stressful b/c they only assign one person for 2 depts
    - Overwelming at times b/c the lack of employees schedules per shift
    - Always reject my request off from work but its good that we have a lot of employees b/c it always get picked up by someone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop over working your employee we are good ppl and want to have a life as well. I promise if that happens and the entry level turnover rate will lower plus PAY US MORE!!! Min. wage isn't enough to live off of.
