I would have to say working at Target is worse than attending high school (when it comes to pettiness and rumors).

I have been working at Target

Pros

The best (and only) pro about working at Target would have to be the rate of pay (for team leads, that is).

Cons

Their hours given to employees are not to good unless it is the holiday season. Also, there are always rumors being spread and "favorites" being chosen for positions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My advice to management would be to hire people for positions if you know they can do the job. If their interviewing skills are not the best, so what! As long as you know that they are able to perform a job, then they should be allowed to do it without having to go through 5 interviews for a team lead position. Also, ETLs should do just as much work as team members do. They need to lead by example and stop sitting in the break room eating all day long.

    I have been working at Target

    Pros

    Target on paper is a fanastic place to work, has a solid mission statement and as a company is truly dedicated to its employees and guests. The company has a fantastic compensation package, combined with opportunities to grow if you are visible.

    Cons

    The Tyler, TX distribution center is poorly managed starting from the top. The senior executive team is largely inexperienced and very reflective of small town Texas. The distribution center tends to favor hiring either ex military as is shown in the senior leadership there, or right out of college with little experience so as to grow the new employee in to a blind follower. Outside experience and advice is not appreciated and can severely hinder your growth.

    I have been working at Target

    Pros

    If your a hard worker and are flexable youll get 40 hours a week pretty much all the time. It has a great sales floor/backroom system amking the job easy.

    Cons

    If your a hard worker they dont want to promote you. Its all about polotics. The more you stand around and bs with everyone the better chance you have to promote.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote your hard working team members. Dont just dangle the idea infront of them tell they quit. Stop hiding all the problems with the store from district management.
