    Pros

    -Discount
    -I liked some of my coworkers

    Cons

    -Cleaning human feces?
    -The pay (I made 8.25 as a GSA)
    -They will literally work you the maximum without giving you benefits.
    -The workload
    -Nearly everything, seriously. Never agian
    -THEY ARE SO CHEAP!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe consider paying us a wage to live on, or not working people 30 hours a week so you can get your needs met from them without meeting theirs (like insurance? hello?!).

    Stop the stupid RedCard push. Fix signing up for the Red Debit Cards so that you can use something besides a check.

    Work on treating your employees right. The greatest skill I mastered working at Target was repressing my urge to uncontrollably sob every night because of the stress.

    Pros

    Friendly environment, large selection, very nice discount.

    Cons

    unprofessional, time consuming, lazy, selfish, and immature.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I applied for a job at Target and instead of just saying "We're not interested." they lead me on for months. Maybe they'll call this day or that day, no. Constant emails, constant calls. But not once did I get called in for an actual interview. I eventually went a different way and wasted so much time on them, that I missed several other opportunities. My advice to them is to get management employees that actually want to hire more than their friends.

    Pros

    Pays well if you are good to your manager

    Cons

    Straight forward people and who raise their voice against wrong do not get to grow. If you cannot be a puppet to your manager, this is not the place for you. Layoff on full fledged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be unbiased and ethical.

    I worked at Target full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Former pay scale
    Schedule, Holidays
    Hourly team I led

    Cons

    Once you reach pay cap your stuck. No 4 year degree...no advancement. Their mentality has changed dramatically over the past several years. I used to love working there but now all they want is the young mindless,inexperienced college grads who can be brainwashed into believing Target's way. Having 20+ years in retail doesn't matter. Once you are labeled as being there too long you WILL be coached every week until you are on a final written warning and then terminated. For doing NOTHING wrong.That's to make room for new hires who will make half your pay. Now with all the debt they have racked up, it will be nearly impossible to work in one of their stores....They will skim off more payroll and force the team to pick up more and more work with skeleton crews. Do not work here!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your business model doesn't work anymore.
    You continue to make stupid decisions about growth and personnel.
    I'll enjoy watching you slide down the list of major retailers in the coming years.

    Pros

    If you're not looking for full time, the short shifts are nice.

    Cons

    They pay peanuts to people who have over a decade of retail experience. Team members always seemed stressed out and over worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to consider better wages if you want your good experienced help to stay. It would not kill you to be a bit more friendly.

    Pros

    Great starting leadership position. Nice team member pool.

    Cons

    No accountability, performance ratings based on 'friendship'. Zero professional actions of executive/store leaders. Manage payroll dollars by terminating higher paid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make customer m poo re important then perception you try to present to shareholders. Leaders need to limit socializing with team to achieve some level of professionalism.

    Pros

    It was terrible. They often made you work till late only to have you come in early the next day.

    Cons

    selling red cards, getting told to put up returns like a million times, I worked at a store where electronics and toys were together so i had to take care of electronics, toys, home improvement and sporting goods and automotive.

    Very hard and manual work. Too many people telling you what to do and how to do it. Not very organized.

    Pros

    Pay was ok as it was a night shift and you got a pay differential. Always was giving away free food and drinks during your break

    Cons

    The mangers did not have very much experience and were busy telling you how they did things earlier in their career and not enough time was placed on training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should really review the entire process of truck unloading. With all of the technology that you have in place, you still have not engineered the work properly. All you were ever told was a box a minute, and that included if there were individual boxes in the main carton.
