    Pros

    After almost a decade with the company I have seen a lot of changes. The best change so far has been Brian Cornell taking over as CEO.
    The people at my store that have been there forever are like family to me.

    Cons

    Pay sucks... In 9 years I've gone from $7/hr to $14/hr. Everyone that is above me in my store is pretty much incompetent. Targets thing is to hire dumb, just out of college girls and pay them lots of money just for them to gossip and text on their phones all day instead of helping the team put.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring anyone with a 4 year degree. Hire people that actually might know what they are doing. And stop pushing redcards.

    Flexible hours
    Great about letting employees have time off for family functions.
    Closed Christmas and Easter so we can be with family and church

    Return to closing at 5 or 6 on Christmas Eve.
