Pros

Pay, Promotions, Development while you are "hot", fast-paced environment, A Leader in Retail keeping ahead of the curve, Great Training

Cons

Target is not a place to work if you have kids and a family- or if you just want work/life balance. It is clear that the people who advance are those that devote endless hours and can change their schedule at a drop of a dime (over and over). The people who work 60 plus hours a week are thought highly of and those that are able to lead teams to be successful in a normal time are expected to work extra hours to help out struggling workcenters (constantly). Also, it is an environment of kissing up and political games. If you want to advance on performance- pick a different employer.

Advice to Management

Take feedback from teams seriously. The STL is not always right. Dig deeper. Take Integrity Hotline calls more seriously. Walk the walk- don't just give advice that you yourself never follow. Promotions should be performance based- not just time commitment.

    Pros

    Benefits are OK; Sometimes, there are a variety of things one can do; If you request off early enough, you will get that day off.

    Cons

    I absolutely hate that if you close the store, you must stay until everything is done...rather it be 10:30pm or 2:30am, you're staying. Little recognition for a good job.

    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.
