    Pros

    Great team building that help you learn your strengths as a group

    Cons

    Lack of communication, if you are unable to move forth with the company and climb the corporate ladder they wait until last minute to let you know. Leaving you trapped and hopeless or transferring and waiting an extra year and a half before receiving approval.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to communicate with your employees. The lack of clarity between what is expected and what needs to be done can really ruin your experience as a team member

    I have been working at Target full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I enjoy the team of people that I work with! And for retail, having every other weekend off is nice.

    Cons

    Outrageous workload with minimal resources to complete the work. The company standard is one set of numbers and even if you meet those expectations it still isn't good enough. Last year I exceeded all company metrics significantly and received a review of only effective. This company used to care about a team member's work life balance...not anymore! I am required to work 50 hours but have to put in at least 60-70 hours easily per week to get the job done. UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONS for the Salesfloor/Guest Experience role...when you walk in the front door at a Target store, EVERYTHING you can SEE is the responsibility for the Salesfloor/GE Executive Team Leader. And it has proven very hard to achieve a reasonably sized bonus based on the companies hardships.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually help your team! Don't be so quick to judge.

    Pros

    Benefits, discounts, flexible schedule, volunteering opportunities, upper management recognizes improvement and gives proper acknowledgement

    Cons

    Pharmacy direction and management is a joke. Most "managers" have no business being managers and barely know how to manage themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either hire people with actual management experience or properly train your pharmacists to be effective team leaders.

    Pros

    Sometimes fun to work there and works out if u are in school. Everybody is friendly there.

    Cons

    There are way too many managers so most of them send u into different directions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be at the max 2 or 3 mangers. And shouldn't take their jobs so seriously.

    Pros

    Awesome culture. Work environment is very focused on positive attitude and team cohesiveness is strongly encouraged.

    Cons

    Leadership is untrained, unskilled and ineffective. Concerns are addressed behind closed doors, often not involving all key players, are dissected and discussed to the point of pettiness and not resolved effectively. Promotions are based on personal relationships rather than skill or tenure, though management claims otherwise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train the leadership to be effective and approachable.
