I worked at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Discount, lively atmosphere, managing some interesting Team Members

Cons

Retail working hours in general (but I will admit that one weekend on/off for management was nice), lack

Advice to Management

Innovate! Don't just dictate and spew the continual "best practice" BS. Promote those who are truly the best fit for the ETL/STL roles (and not those who have just been in the previous required roles for the required 18 months, etc.).

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

    Pros

    Clean, bright, good company philosophy in general, easy to gain new new skills through cross training.

    Cons

    Shift work is never ideal since it is hard to schedule the rest of your life around it and there just isn't enough money to keep very many quality people there.

    Advice to Management

    An incentive for the team members you really want to keep or reward - ask them about their shift preferences and try to work with them more often than not. Also, just a comment: there seems to be a direct correlation between how much experience a leader or manager has and how cranky they get with people for their mistakes or for things that just go wrong. The older, wiser ones are great about getting a treat or equipment requests or just giving genuine compliments.
