    Listen to your associates more closely. You'd be surprised how an ineffective leader can drive many associates away.

    Pros

    The store is really well laid out and pretty clean. It is a pretty prestigious place for mid-level retailer and all employees brag that their store is better than Walmart.

    Also, if you are ambitious there are generally plenty of leadership openings available if you want to scale the corporate ladder. Even better, you don't have to have an MBA for many store or corporate positions.

    As the store carries so much, if you ever come to work and need something or forgot something, you can generally buy it there. Work where you need to travel the store is a pleasure as you always see things that you want to buy.

    Cons

    Like all retailers, they have issues with availability. You ask for certain hours on certain days and at times they completely ignore it.

    Be smart about where you start, as you need to really fight management to get retrained in other areas of the stores if you are tired of your own or think that it is a resume killer.

    Less of an issue now, but they also used to really push the employees to sell credit cards to customers even though it was obvious the market was very saturated. One boss told me that one reason for continuing it was that hundreds of people were turning 18 every day and could apply - completely ignoring the fact that it is hardly moral giving such a dangerous thing to a youth.

    The Executive Team Leader position is an absolute killer, requiring well over 40+ hours a week. One of my immediate bosses declared that he avoid being one at all cost as at least five ETL's he knew had divorces and he liked being married.

    As a cart attendant, I have one of the most strenous jobs in the store requiring that I fly around acres of store floor occasionally doing numerous things at once and acting as a general troubleshooter - and have never been recognized as Employee of the Month despite years of employment. Because we are outside, apparently our work is invisible.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pushing credit cards, consider hiring more ETLs, more flexibility is needed for employees who want to switch work stations. Drop the lime/olive green, teal blue, and black color scheme used for cheaper Target items as they are hideous.
