Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Target (More than 3 years)

Pros

If you are young, beautiful, and blonde you will get hired, if not you may get hired but never promoted.
You will get a lunch.
You get 10% off purchases.
Even the people who hate you smile, the bigger the smile, th bigger the hate.

Cons

Company promotes genuine faking.
That smile is turning a knife in your back.
No matter what they say the reason is, truth is you didn't get the job because they hired a friend or relative.
They target people they dislike for termination. dosen't mean you did something wrong, they just don't like you.

Advice to Management

Will they listen?

    • Senior Management

    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good place to work. Most of the employees are easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Almost as if problem people are praised and protected and good hard workers are not. If you want to promote you dont need to know how to perform a job or do a job well you only need to have management like you.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people from in the stores.


  2. "Your experience will vary based on management at your location."

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friendly team members.
    Benefits package for full time (be wary---they are currently working on eliminating this).
    Pay comparable to similar jobs in area.
    Stores are generally clean and safe to work in.

    Cons

    Management hired from outside the company with little or no previous job experience; Hard to promote from within company.
    Very difficult to maintain 32 hours/week required for full time status unless a team leader or above.
    Experience will vary greatly based on store manager.
    High turnover (our store is on its 4th store manager, 5th HR manager in five years).

    Advice to Management

    A different forum for interviewing/hiring from within needs to be established and a higher emphasis on true development (not just for ETL/STL or added busywork) needs to occur.
