    I have been working at Target

    Pros

    Great team, easy workflow, decent management.... Builds customer relationship and customer service experience. Pay is decent for techs being that this is retail.

    Cons

    Constant protocol changes, tech hrs. Are based on prescription.count, so if your store is slow expect not to have hrs. Prescription goals are unobtainable without proper set tech hrs. Which leaves staff to pull more weight than needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the pharmacy techs set hours instead of hours based on workflow, days are unpredictable and the averages are always wrong.

    I have been working at Target part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You get scheduled Atleast 16 hours a week. You get 10% off. Employees are nice to each other. Cashiering is easy.

    Cons

    You are just a number to them. A robot to slave away. They use you when they need you and then kick you to the curb. Forget about getting hired after your 90 days if you have missed a shift or ever been late.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Human resources is a joke. They say they have your back, but in reality they just cover Target in any situation.

    I have been working at Target full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    great leadership development, benefits are given to both hourly and exempt positions, office promotions are possible at any level especially now that team leaders can become ETL's without a degree, great teamwork

    Cons

    compensation is decent but not competitive, the company has been consolidating positions for more work and less pay, work-life balance is hard because the schedule can be inconsistent and long hours, can be very political with promotions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    leadership development for the team leaders could be better; rather than having them serve as coverage for a lack of payroll, allow them to manage their business.

    Pros

    Easy work. If you are a good worker you will easily outshine everyone else. Management does care about your life outside of work and is flexible. The little perks like special snacks in the breakroom and drawings are fun.

    Cons

    Not run like other Target stores. Management does not communicate with each other. About half the workers don't work. They wander and hide, talk on their cell phones, and avoid working in general. They even talk on their cell phones in plain sight of other staff who either don't care or know nothing will be done if they say something.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the dead beats!
