    Started great, but going downhill

    Presentation Team Member (Current Employee)
    Merritt Island, FL

    ProsFlexibility of individual scheduling
    Open door policy

    ConsChances for promotions
    Stressful Atmosphere
    Poor raises

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe company as a whole has begun to take a turn for the worse. They have started to cut corners financially while increasing the workload among individuals. There is no chance for a promotion without some form of a degree regardless of the amount of time you have already put in with the company. They would rather hire someone from the outside with zero job experience and an unrelated degree than promote someone with double digit years and no history of negative work relations.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The company is great, although certain individual stores have a tendency toward horrible management

    Flow Team Member (Current Employee)
    Tampa, FL

    Pros-Comes with benefits package
    -Diverse work centers that allow for career development
    -Constant flow of team members, so you meet a lot of interesting characters
    -Typically, a very secure job

    ConsThis pertains to the particular store I worked for and Flow Team:
    -You only get overtime on holidays, and only when it’s approved by the STL. Try it any other day and pack your bags.
    -Working as a Flow Team member, you’ll often find yourself the scapegoat and always the pack mule. And nearly everyone will make the automatic assumption that you’re a complete idiot (and you will be surrounded by quite a few).
    -The supervisors almost never fire the people who won’t do their job, but liked to ‘reward’ the people who did their job well with more hours (when they didn’t want them), often in work centers they did not want to work in. This meant having to check your availability in the system weekly because your supervisor would change it without telling you so that they could schedule you way past your availability even though you had another job. And this will keep happening until you tell higher management and then you’d find that you’d only be scheduled for half shifts until you go to higher management again.
    -Aside from the above, the hardest part of the job was making up for the not-so-great employees’ mistakes, because almost nobody gets fired for not doing their job (only not showing up - or no longer being able to show up - for it).
    -There was lots of sexism at the store I worked at, too, as an added bonus. For example, they would almost never let the men on flow team stock clothes or makeup, they would leave it until last and tell all the guys to go home and leave the girls alone to stock it. It was so frustrating that one of the girls just walked out one day.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo followups to the routine district manager checkups.

    Decent company, terrible location

    Flow Team Member (Current Employee)
    Oviedo, FL

    ProsI got to meet a few people I can call true friends, though they have since left. Getting to pick up groceries after my shift.

    ConsSince the data breach, it's only gone downhill. Last year I made about $700 a month, and I haven't been able to break $500 a month this year. They hire too many people so feel lucky if you get more than 20 hours a week. But it's hard to complain about short shifts because you start to hate being there so much. Working so early really makes it hard to maintain any sort of life outside of work. There is zero organization or management. You can give them a huge spiel on what needs to change daily, and not a single thing will. I'm leaving immediately, this was once a decent place to work but now I would run. I've heard other Targets have much better management and workers though, so it may be worth the drive to apply to other stores in the area.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWe need all new management. For some reason, they aren't allowed to fire anyone who doesn't do any work if they've worked there a certain amount of time. It doesn't matter if they call in (or no call no show) for months.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
