Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Target (More than a year)

Pros

People you work with
Benefits pckg (health insurance and so-forth)
Knowlege you gain if you're cross-trained in several areas (always a + and they love it)

I was there for 2.5 years and overall loved my job.

Cons

Minimum wage to start out
Terrible payraises
Can be hard to advance
Be careful speaking up with your opinions. They say they're against retaliation, but that isn't below them.

Advice to Management

When telling TM's you're going to develope them, actually do it. Set a plan and follow through. Be more hands on with your team. Be mindful who you're letting go. You know you won't be able to replace those exceptional TM's.

    I have been working at Target full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some of my colleagues were great, especially regular employees who tried to have fun with a tedious and very demanding job.

    Cons

    Management was, at best, disinterested with individual employees, and were harsh in action with other employees that had bad days. The culture is to be excited about everything and always listen to HQ, which is sometimes unable to occur due to individual situations. Also, I'm just not that mean and happy at the same time.

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone is quiet, does not mean they're a bad employee.


  2. "Seriously such an amazing company"
