    Worked at two Targets: One was great the other wasn't

    I worked at Target

    Pros

    Target in Springfield, IL was great! Flexible hours, management was accessible, always the opportunity to train in other areas and pick up hours.

    Cons

    The Target I worked in Glendale, AZ was disorganized.
    Pay is poor but it's a decent high school job.

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

    Pros

    I loved the people I worked with at Target, it has a really good view on personal image, you are free to be you, and are pretty gay friendly as well. Pay is better than other discount retail stores.

    Cons

    The ladder is broken... What I mean is you have to start with like no hours and work your way up to an inconsistant always changing hour system. It's really annoying if you have a family to support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tweak your system to make it easier to grow.

    I worked at Target full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Its a great company to get your foot in the door to work up the retail ladder. Really great leadership programs producing great leadership.

    Cons

    Wages can be low and hours can be crappy at first. But it gets better with time in company. At my store i got stuck in a big power shift. The leaving leadership was AMAZING, the oncoming were new to there positions so life was very hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work. Management at my location really needed to lear how to separate there outside lives from work. But they really did fallow the Target core values and believed in them. They also really believe in there Team Members.
