    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.

    Best things for working with Target were the discounts they had on clothes and other items. People there were really nice to me and everyone liked me.

    Cons

    Some of the challenages from working here were that some of the times we'd be short on Team Members and i had to fill in.
