      Neutral Outlook
      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Target part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Some of the team leaders are nice, but I enjoyed working with the customer much more.

      Cons

      Being watched by security while you, follow to the restroom, and follow when you're off and while you're shopping!. Don't hire people that you don't trust. It's not a good feel, for people that are not thieves. Very uncomfortable, and the security team sits in the lunchroom and brags about it. Terrible feeling.

      Advice to Management

      Communicate more with your staff, and stop expecting teenagers and young adults with very if any leadership skills to run your store. The only time you communicate with store staff is when its punitive. This is really sad.
