  2. "Target gone bad"

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

    Pros

    Pay: Target generally pays about 75cent to a dollar more on hourly pay than it's competitors.

    Flexible schedule: Good for if you are a college student (once I graduated I ran out of there)

    Cons

    Limit hours: Target has taken the odd initiative to hire more employees but give them less hours and days. To paint a picture for you. You might work four days and barely make 20 hrs.

    Rarely room for growth: When I first started I heard people say they've been there for 5,6,7 yrs and still can't become team leads (full time position) or qualify for benefits.
    So basically, even though they are one of the company that consistently hire folks-they also have a hi turn over on employees. Moral of the story, if need you really need money go for it but make sure you keep on job hunting.

    Advice to Management

    To all you companies that have taken on this practice, good luck with finding quality and loyal employees. I'll give it another 3 years before your employees begin to unionize.
    POWER TO THE PEOPLE!
