Former Employee - Cashier/Cart Attendant
Former Employee - Cashier/Cart Attendant
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Managers created a friendly work environment most of the time
Decent starting wage
Chance to move up in the position

Cons

Scheduling - bad hours or not scheduling enough people
Communication about changes
Didn't always have enough or right supplies to do my job
Confusing leadership structure
Very small raises - several people's starting wage was very close to mine when I had already been working there for 4 years

Advice to Management

When changes are made, you need to inform everybody of these changes. Many times I was not given the supplies necessary to do my job. Lastly, I would fix the scheduling, many people were dissatisfied at the way scheduling was handled.

    Pros

    Store Discount
    Should be lots of opportunity for advancement

    Cons

    Not all stores have the same culture. The culture of the store I work at now is opposite of the supportive and fun culture that I had at another. My current store is not interested in developing team members which was my main reason for moving to Target in the first place. The executlive team is all women only 25 yrs old or younger (even the STL) and many had had no other job experience than Target. I often feel and have other team members feel demoralized. Very dissapointing.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop hiring people right out of college to manage other people unless they have actually had experience managing or leading people.
