I have been working at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

I've practically been all over the store, learned every department so as far as knowledge Im happy Ive learned so much.

Cons

To promote, it seems like you have to do some serious ass kissing. Ive worked my ass off and still havent gotten promoted. Management always expects too much..

Advice to Management

They need to do a better job promoting people and promote more within! Especially if your store has a lot of talent. Management usually consists of young 22-26 year old recent college grads and frankly they dont all know what they are doing. Promote more competent people, a degree doesnt always mean everything.

    The potential to take yourself to where you want to go.

    Upper level management is very political. It's all about who you know.

    Pros

    Learned many different skills around the store. Found myself becoming more independent and working with less instruction. The HR staff was some of the nicest people I've ever met.

    Cons

    Unrealistic demands in short periods of time. No opportunity to advance within store and most employees felt like they were asked to do to much. The management wasn't providing an ideal learning/training environment.

    Advice to Management

    Expect more results from Team Leaders by improving interpersonal skills and becoming actual leaders.
