Store is slightly off the mark, but with some tweaking can hit the bullseye.

I have been working at Target

Pros

Variety of jobs available, the events done to boost employee morale (birthday/anniversary recognition, holiday celebrations, etc.), their attempts at trying to promote a team culture, prizes for accomplishing different things (i.e. employee: who gets the most credit card applications, with the best looking section, who promotes the highest sales by approaching guests and offering assistance, reaching a certain number of days without an accident, etc.), diversity, and broad hours allow school attendance to mesh with work schedule

Cons

Frequent work shift changes without discussion, keeping employees beyond their shifts on an almost daily basis; being locked in the building at the end of your shift after you are off the clock, having to wait for management to finish emails, discussions, equipment/key counts, etc. before disarming the store and unlocking the door; the lack of accountability for people who aren't efficiently doing their jobs, highers-ups who do things no one should do let alone someone who works for the company (i.e. using a towel that was for sale to dust the shelves, opening & using products without paying for them, etc.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To let you strong workers do the job you know they can do without micromanaging every step and speak with others who need an extra push to do their job. Staff properly to avoid the constant crisis mode workday. Also, give everyone in-store a chance to fill vacancies before putting someone from outside in the positions or filling them by 'unofficially' asking your 'pet' people to do them.

    Pros

    Work/life balance is great for all. Training and development at the store level is fantastic and anybody wanting a career at target can can great opportunities if they apply themselves>
    The company is focused on building talent both from inside the organization, as well as building new talent from the outside. As a former intern I can speak to the value the company places on building an executive Team that can achieve, deliver results, and have fun along the way!

    Cons

    None that I can think of at this time. Like any job, you get out of Target what you put into it...
