    Pros

    Hard work, but a fun place to work, especially for younger people. Right out of college to mid thirties I would say.

    Cons

    Overnight sets, late closing hours, not enough payroll to cover salesfloor.

    Pros

    The culture is one that promotes hard but enjoyable work. Target loves to promote from all levels. Target sets you up for success as long as you are driven and open.

    Cons

    It is hard to be a part of the decision making process until you are very high up in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage team members to give feedback whenever they have an idea. You never know when somebody will come up with the next big breakthrough in making more efficient processes.

    Pros

    Most people here have no idea what they're doing, much like I do, so if you make a mistake it's not the end of the word USUALLY. Hours are pretty consistent

    Cons

    The management is terrible (but it's generally pretty consistent), the store manager usually has a chip on his shoulder.

    Advice to Management

    Start promoting people, actually recognize hard work and allow for a more inclusive culture.

    Pros

    Friendly management and co workers. Decent benefits. Corporate tries new practices.

    Cons

    Team Member wage is not competitive. Training has become lax due to the decrease in team leaders. New team members lazy and not as productive. Many positions have been eliminated over the last five years creating stressful environments for team members and diminishing customer service value for consumers. Team Member are not consulted on new practices that directly effect them. Naturally, new practices tend to not work out so well since corporate does not ask for or ignores feedback. Head banging against wall.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more Team Leaders. Stop cutting the hours of your current team members. It is detrimental long term. There *must* be somewhere else to save money on. HIRE MORE TEAM LEADERS.

    Pros

    Great company, great co-workers, great supervisors, good pay

    Cons

    Hours aren't great when they have to cut hours. Sometimes you only get at least 28 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Give the hours to the team member that works in that area, not to another team member that works in another part of the store. Give the hours to the team member that does their job.
