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

Pros

Potential growth if that is what you want.

Cons

Amount of workload that is expected to get done. It's not possible. Each year they add more and more change or policy on your plate. You work well over 50 hours a week. No work life balance

Advice to Management

I was promoted internally.. Please train new executives properly. Business college is a joke. The worst part, and part of the reason I resigned was that I had to answer to or work with store managers or exectives that did not know one thing about retail or Target in general. My team felt the same way as well. Target has a lot of loyal employees, it is so demoralizing when there new boss is someone who read best pratice and now thinks they can be a leader. Target is changing and going in a direction that I was not able to follow. I do give a lot of credit and thank Target for molding my career in retail.

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

    Pros

    -Management listens to any team member concerns
    Decent pay
    - Guests are nice

    Cons

    -Lack of training on cashier- I just was told "good luck" by my team lead, and was never properly trained on EBT or checks. I was also not told that I had to sell a certain amount of Redcards to get decent hours, I guess that should have been a given though.
    - Team members were not helpful and spent most of their shift talking about what happened at their high school and talking about sex. It was kind of a "every man for them self" environment.

    Advice to Management

    Allow time for new cashiers to train at all locations.
