Pros

Target allows you to own your own training and you are empowered to grow and learn as much as you are willing. I was able to take additional leadership opportunities and was constantly challenged. Work was never boring as long as I challenged myself. The pay and benefits were good. Feedback was constant, not just annually.

Cons

It is rare to be promoted internally to get to an executive position or higher. Most salaried positions are filled externally.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Team Member discount of 10% off on store merchandise.
    Friendly peers (same level employees)
    Ability to create relationship with store guests - that recognize you based on their frequency of shopping at the store.

    Cons

    -Management is hired from career fairs; in which most are 21-22 years of age and have little experience in the retail or management field.
    -It seems that management focuses more on what you are doing wrong; than what you are doing right. Which means that their recognition program is very weak.
    -Promotions are very slim. You can work day in and day out; and only be criticized for what wasn't done right.
    -Management finds employees that are hard working; and brain-wash them into believing that they will be promoted and tell them "This captainship will help with your development; and when it comes time for an interview - you will have great stories during the interview" And once you go to these interviews; they only tell you that your hardwork hasn't yet paid off.

    Advice to Management

    There is a huge laundry-list of my disappointments of this company and I hope that the CEO and management will listen to their employees based off the "opinion survey" conducted annually and actually implement what their employees are saying.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    You're always meeting new people, if you need to pick up hours they will almost always say yes, if you like working with a team this may be a good job for you.

    Cons

    There are so many managers so it's hard to communicate. One tells you one thing, and when another manager comes on they'll tell you another. The pay isn't all that good for what you're doing on the sales floor,especially in softlines. Which is cleaning up after all of the customers all day. It becomes tedious folding the same table over and over. Management doesn't treat employees with respect. There is a very high turn over rate.

    Advice to Management

    Management need to learn how to communicate better with one another. They should actually care about the employees and maybe there wouldn't be such a high turnover rate.
