    Pros

    The benefits are good and the store is good about being flexible with scheduling. The team members work well together and bottom performers are moved out pretty quickly. Upper leadership is pretty responsive to issues and concerns and everyone is pretty friendly.

    Cons

    Retail hours can be stressful and a work life balance is not always accomplished. The company has stores that test different hours, so closing times can be anywhere from 9pm-12 pm depending on the location and business volume of the store. Store hours are also extended during the holidays making it more difficult to adjust life patterns.
    Pay is not bad for upper management but there is always more work piled on without extra staff...unreasonable demands that are stressful. Equipment decisions are terrible and there is never enough to go around.
    Promotional opportunities are very limited and many jobs go to new grads who do not know the business and do not last long.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to and act on what employees are telling you. They are the ones working in the trenches and have the working knowledge of day to day operations. Stop hiring college grads with zero experience to run stores.

    Pros

    Diversity of the workplace, Great Co-Workers, Ability to give back to your community, 401 K, Promotional Opportunities, Team Member Empowerment,

    Cons

    Difficult Work Life Balance, Retail Hours, No real ability to enjoy a Holiday, you are working so that everyone else has one. Target lost some of their key forward thinking annalist and marketing gurus several years ago. Company made some very poor financial decisions that impacted the company and strategy. Target Canada was a fiasco.

    Advice to Management

    Realistic Job Descriptions, realistic goals for teams. A training program that makes sense and trains Team Members to do the job they are hired to perform first, cross train second. Pay team members based on performance and the level of difficulty of the job they are performing. Ask yourself " if I was asked to perform that task", what would be fair compensation? Simplify plano sets, freight flow could be adjusted to meet sales planner set. So much time is lost in unloading, back stocking, and pulling staging and setting. To much lost payroll and lost ability to drive sales and serve guests! Minimize signing, the signs continually fall, use company signage that would rotate out say every six months, end caps could then be easily switched out, look brand and provide a great value, single price point, message. Ad Set Up is a disaster, I still shop Target and many time old ad signs, or worse, I purchase products that were on sale but not signed, I don't realize it until I get to the register and think, wow I would have bought more had I known. Lost Sales!

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere. Lots of team events. If you are willing to cross train there is lots of opportunities to work in different areas.

    Cons

    Unfortunately if you don't have a degree or know the right people, you can't advance your career. Definitely a popularity contest. If your in good with the STL and ETLs you will big a top performer and can see many opportunities. However, if you just don't click well with upper management you will have a target (pun intended) on your back, and you could see a pink slip shortly. The pay was very low and they would have yearly reviews (supposed to be based on job performance) but it was more if your ETL liked you. There was not enough hours and they were constantly cutting hours and only making 4 hour shifts, so not even worth coming in.

    Pros

    It really depends what you put into it. You will often be over worked and under staffed, so I guess the time at least goes by fast.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth, to do so you have to go above and beyond and then it just becomes expected of you. They then expect you to go beyond that to the point where you are ALWAYS doing your supervisors job. They will keep you there because they see they now have an easy ride.

    Advice to Management

    If you don't have adequate hours to cover the sales floor with the correct amount of employees, salaried managers shouldn't be sitting around joking in the conference room. They should be helping out.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employee's wants and needs regarding certain things. Will help.
