I have been working at Target

Pros

Very flexible hours, benefits include the usual 401(k) and /medical/dental/vision, but they also provide a 15% discount (with target check card) and a website full of discounts at other places (apple, various cell phone providers, airlines and hotels, florists, etc..).

Cons

It can be difficult to stand out and make an impression in some departments, which makes promotions difficult. They like to hire new college grads for management and then throw them in to sink or swim which puts pressure on managers as well as team members. Being retail, the hours can be unpredictable (sometimes you get 40/week, sometimes you get 8/week) and dependent upon sales and staffing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Overall, my experience has been good. Target gives a lot of support and encouragement but be careful to avoid favoritism or any other unfair treatment because team members talk and word of a manager who is even percieved as unfair will spread to the whole store in a matter of minutes.

    Management becomes to focused on how they can meet the needs of the upper management. This then causes them to not focus on the needs of their team
