    Pros

    You get good experience, a good job to start if your in school, and they will work around your school hours. They use updated technology and great commication is used between the team.

    Cons

    Be prepared to go beyond and above for a customer. Also be open to work in different departments at short notice. Target is a very busy store on the weekends and holidays. Executives will monitor your area and keep a check on you.

    Advice to Management

    Try to provide extra support on busy nights when the store is under staffed. Always be respectful and show your store team that you apriecate their efforts and smile more often.

    Pros

    Good environment and management for the most part, you do receive recognition for hard work sometimes.

    Cons

    Pay isn't great by any means for the workload you are required to do.

    Advice to Management

    Think more realistically when it comes to setting goals.

    Pros

    Employee empowerment, recognition, easy to move horizontally and vertically in the company, company culture and work environment is fast, fun and friendly

    Cons

    Economic fluctuations have resulted in heavier work loads without just compensation, store-level management is undervalued

    Advice to Management

    My advice, as a full-time employee, is to raise wages for store-level management and raise hiring standards. Great company that, with a little refinement in store-level operations, could become more efficient and in the end perhaps raise company revenues and take away after quarterly expenses are factored out (including heightened wages).

  7. Incredibly unorganized wont allow 40 hours.

    Pros

    Coworkers always great and fun to work with. Management was also very good at listening and at addressing concerns.

    Cons

    Target Corporation had certain minimum expectations for the logistics team. For example, a truck had to be unloaded within 60 minutes. Some of their expectations are sometimes impossible to meet.

  11. A decent job to gain experience when management cares to cultivate your growth--which is unfortunately a rarity.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, potential upward mobility, young energetic management, a culture centered around personal recognition and team spirit.

    Cons

    Lots of turnover which can make it easy to get lost in the shuffle; red card expectations can be infuriating; low pay for team members

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your human resource. There are plenty of hardworking individuals at Target whose accomplishments get overlooked. Settle down with the red cards.
