Positive Outlook

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

Pros

-Co workers were mostly pleasant.
-Super nice managers, though they were pretty uninvolved.
-Clear expectations
-Store security always has your back.

Cons

-Cashiering is a nightmare. If an old lady needs to count her change, your speed will go into "red zone." If a lady with kids fumbles with her wallet, "red zone." If you're in the "red zone," you get "coached."
-If you don't get enough people to open "red card" accounts, you get coached.
-Long, long shifts spent doing nothing but cleaning up.
-Customers at Target always seem really angry. I do not remember a moment where a child was not screaming at the top of their lungs somewhere in the store.
-For some reason, the fitting room attendant has to also be the store phone operator, which adds to the chaos of the already chaotic fitting room.

Advice to Management

Cap the chaos.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately there isn't any advice to offer as the suggestions are never taken into account. All that can be said, is to just value your employees more as there are some good people who work there and end up leaving.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They hire many inexperienced people. Good chance to get your foot in the door. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Management isn't helpful or supportive. Very little chances for advancement. Not much recognition for your hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Be helpful and treat all employees fairly, not just the executives and team leads.
