I worked at Target

Pros

You're always meeting new people, if you need to pick up hours they will almost always say yes, if you like working with a team this may be a good job for you.

Cons

There are so many managers so it's hard to communicate. One tells you one thing, and when another manager comes on they'll tell you another. The pay isn't all that good for what you're doing on the sales floor,especially in softlines. Which is cleaning up after all of the customers all day. It becomes tedious folding the same table over and over. Management doesn't treat employees with respect. There is a very high turn over rate.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management need to learn how to communicate better with one another. They should actually care about the employees and maybe there wouldn't be such a high turnover rate.

    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 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.
