    I have been working at Target

    Pros

    The employers truly are nice and caring. They encourage thank you's and your welcome's and strive to create a happy workforce. You WILL work in other areas, so be prepared to be flexible! But we are all a team and help each other wherever it's needed.

    Cons

    Training is the one thing that I would complain about. In the position I had, you wouldn't train with a team leader or etl (and if you do, it's for 15 minutes). You train with a team member and (sometimes) it's not even a team member that works in the area you need training in. They just kinda throw you into your job. Be prepared to ask (A LOT) of questions. There are no stupid questions (mostly) and everyone is happy to help a new team member.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Again, I feel that training should be more hands on and with someone that has more experience like a leader.

    Pros

    I like the interaction you have with team members and guests. Very flexible with scheduling and willing to work with you. HR in every store lets you handle any pay issue quickly and easily. I'm in a store with a very knowledgeable STL (Store Team Leader) and I've learned a lot from them. Never a dull moment, there's plenty to do. Able to work in different departments fairly easily.

    Cons

    Depending on the store, the team culture can be different. Sometimes there are leaders that don't act like leaders. Like with any place you work, the politics can get pretty ridiculous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to inform your team about how important their role is and how it fits into the big picture. Sometimes people will do a better job if they understand why they are doing what they do. And while it's nice we are driving guest loyalty, stop adding to the novel our poor cashiers have to be sure to output in every transaction to every guest.
