"Avoid flow team"

StarStarStarStarStar
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

Decent pay working overnight. There are some awesome co-workers but a ton of tools, this especially includes management. The store is nice at least.

Cons

Looked down upon by all other parts of the store. The 'store culture' is a complete joke. You are by far the hardest working people in the store, but the least appreciated. Managers are some of the most fake people I've ever met.

Advice to Management

Value your hard working employees!

    I worked at Target full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, fun atmosphere, great opportunity for advancement

    Cons

    work-life balance, benefits, poor direction from senior management, constant micromanaging around metrics

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing so much on metrics but rather focus on the results. A number means nothing if you don't know what is actually going on.

    "Expect "recognition" and "appreciation," instead of compensation."

    I worked at Target full-time

    Pros

    You are encouraged and allowed to take on as much responsibility and cross-training as you can stomach.
    Benefits are great, but getting worse (for full-time employees): up to 5% 401k matching, pension (if hired before 1/1/2009), health care plans (see Cons).
    Decent culture, fun work environment.

    Cons

    No room for promotion unless you have a Bachelor's or better degree.
    No bonuses for team members, and hourly pay rates are capped.
    You will never meet the District TL's expectations. Store goal is now 2% redcards, nope 3%, nope 4%! Guests on our survey are expected to be 70% "amazed," haha just kidding, now it's 80%.
    Health care plans that have become steadily worse to practically worthless (high deductible HSA) in the last couple of years.
