    I worked at Target part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good programs, and good team members. There were fun games to play to increase morale.

    Cons

    LODs can just tell you all the time what you need to do, and what you are doing wrong, but not focusing on what you are doing right, or saying things like keep up the good work. Team Leaders tended to be much better on that regard. During peek seasons we were kept till 1am in the morning fixing the store. I find that is unacceptable to be kept well over your shift and everyone had to stay even if they were done with their work. Perfection was expected on pushing stuff forward at these peek times.

    Advice to Management

    Don't nitpick. Remember to say one good thing the person is doing right when you are letting them know when they are doing something wrong.
