    Advice to Management

    My advice to my upper management is that not everyone gets the opportunity to make their way through college like they did. And that treating us like dirt because we dont have that silly piece of paper is inexcusable. And your never in the right to tell someone who has been standing doing nothing for two minutes is diminishing your egos while you have been sitting there for twenty minutes sipping coffee while your name is being called for help. There are people who have given their full effort and time to your store and yet they recieve 10 cent raises and no room to promotion because of a college degree, and you personally redicule them because you have something they dont. And it was nice to know that after all my months of hard work and time given to you was matched with not a single thank you or goodbye on my last day. I also am also shocked that you needed to have employee brainstorming meeting because the yearly review from ypur own employees because the ratings were so terrible. My job position was fairly simple as a base fact but you all made it seem impossible.

    I worked at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary
    Promotions if you are young and single
    Working with some (keyword is some) really good people
    Learning experiences

    Cons

    Hours - Dont expect to work less than 50 hours if you are an Executive. Those hours go up to 60-70 during the holidays or if your store is "red."
    Work/life balance
    Politics

    Advice to Management

    Quit making examples out of certain employees. Act like you are human and have a heart sometimes.
