Pros

Target Mobile is good for it's hours, commission opportunity, and it's independence. Target itself also has good traffic on weekends.

Cons

The management is terribly unstable. Representatives and management is often times hard to reach. Not enough people know about Target Mobile.

Have multiple managers, and be organized.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    * 3 or 4 day work work is good to have time off or if you have a family and kids to watch.
    * Group Leader train up.
    * Salary to start.
    * Other group leaders are generally easy to get along with.

    Cons

    * Evaluation process is confusing and seems to be based more on time in the company than effort and job performance.
    * Extremely high group leader turnover rate that senior leadership will not address.
    * This particular DC is ranked near the bottom of the DC pyramid in terms of performance and senior group leaders are unable to offer advice on how to improve.
    * Very few promotions opportunities. Promotions that do occur are based on how well you have "built relationships" rather than how well you have actually performed and managed your team. This leads to senior group leaders than have no idea how to offer technical advice to new group leaders reporting to them.
    * Senior group leaders do not actively support those that would like to venture outside the DC for other job opportunities within Target. Rather they allow them to leave Target altogether.

    Advice to Management

    Exec turnover rate must be addressed. HR seems to think it is because the "wrong" group leaders are being hired and that is why they are leaving but in reality it has more to do with how the senior group leaders manage them. Senior group leaders seem to have no experience managing salaried supervisors and do not know how to develop them. Furthermore, promoting senior group leaders from within the building has caused resentment among the group leaders that worked with them previously.
