So concerned about the customer, forgets about the employee.

Pros

Benefits are OK; Sometimes, there are a variety of things one can do; If you request off early enough, you will get that day off.

Cons

I absolutely hate that if you close the store, you must stay until everything is done...rather it be 10:30pm or 2:30am, you're staying. Little recognition for a good job.

    Target is a great place to work if you are willing to devote endless hours working, and kiss up to the DTL and above.

    Pros

    Pay, Promotions, Development while you are "hot", fast-paced environment, A Leader in Retail keeping ahead of the curve, Great Training

    Cons

    Target is not a place to work if you have kids and a family- or if you just want work/life balance. It is clear that the people who advance are those that devote endless hours and can change their schedule at a drop of a dime (over and over). The people who work 60 plus hours a week are thought highly of and those that are able to lead teams to be successful in a normal time are expected to work extra hours to help out struggling workcenters (constantly). Also, it is an environment of kissing up and political games. If you want to advance on performance- pick a different employer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take feedback from teams seriously. The STL is not always right. Dig deeper. Take Integrity Hotline calls more seriously. Walk the walk- don't just give advice that you yourself never follow. Promotions should be performance based- not just time commitment.

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

    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.
