Positive Outlook

I have been working at Target full-time

Pros

With the lack of any highly paid manufacturing work in the area at the Target D.C. fills that role. Good benefits with 5% 401k matching. Quarterly raises when you start and so far since it's opening 11 years ago annual raises have been given for cost of living increase.

Cons

Unless you have ten plus years of experience plan on working one of three shifts:
A-1: S/U/M 6am-6p
A-2:S/U/M 6p-6a
B-2: T/W/R/F 4p-2a
Training is not merit or performance based but rather based on favoritism it seems
Extremely high management (lower level group leader) turnover
Corrective action write-ups are also based on favoritism it seems where as some can get away with 14+ call ins before punishment others only need 8.

Advice to Management

Ask for updates on who top performers in various attributes are and who is getting advanced training in various functions.
Communication between departments should be more open and even having rotating management contributing to start up announcements. This could be an inbound manager(group leader) telling the warehouse workers what they are doing well at as well as areas that they could better support inbound team members.
