  1. "Cart Attendant"

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Target part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pretty fun but very fast paced work and you have to be up and down the whole time.

    Cons

    Only 1 cart attendant per shift wich sucked because when it would get busy you would get behind. Or when you would leave to lunch you would come back and there would be almost no carts.

    Pros

    Easy to get a job

    Cons

    Pros

    Great benefits - your benefits start immediately so you don't have to wait the traditional 90 days to have health insurance! Solid training - they really want you to feel comfortable with what you're doing. Good culture - you work with some amazing people.

    Cons

    The work itself sucks, in my opinion. Stocking shelves, opening boxes, ringing up customers, cleaning up messes, helping customers find things, checking up on employees to make sure they're doing their job right....long hours....not my cup of tea. But if you like retail and like that kind of work then go for it.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees' needs and ideas

    I worked at Target part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours and friendly employees

    Cons

    Just about everything else: low pay, pushy managers, never ending criticism, huge shift/inconsistency in attitude depending on store and department

    Advice to Management

    Consistency across management levels and stores. Heard from other friends at other stores a vast number of different opinions/stories about managers or what departments people actually enjoyed. The "fake" nature of managers feedback to employees is so overwhelmingly evident it was near impossible to take critique seriously. Stop taking customer service and how managers press it to the extreme: have had 4 customer service jobs and this was above all the most ridiculous (it's common sense customer service...not rocket science). Pressure from senior mgmt. seeps all the way down to store mgmt. and to the bottom of the totem pole (esp. the RedCard)

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, black friday was actually really fun because everyone in the store worked at the same time and we were all in it together

    Cons

    Inadequate pay for the amount of issues you have to deal with. But that's true about any job.

    Advice to Management

    none

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Target had one of the highest paying, highest responsibility jobs to offer out of all of the companies I looked at when graduating college. I have done two different roles and learned so much personally and professionally in both. I have received two large pay increases and a small annual increase in my 3 years with the company. I got to lead a team of 60 when I was barely 21 years old which was scary but was the type of role I was looking for.

    Cons

    Be ready to get your hands dirty and be on your feet for quite a bit of your day. Target does not have all of the glitz and glam of other business world employers so that is just something to prepare for. Being a retailer, ETLs work on an every other weekend rotation, Thanksgiving night, and Christmas Eve.

    -Great team mentality
    -Tenured team members are very loyal

    Cons

    -Politics play a huge role in leadership
    -Hard work can mean nothing if the "right" people didn't see it

    Advice to Management

    Train new team members and follow up. Ask them how they are doing and ask more direct questions in regards to specific core roles.

    Pros

    Team building, positive atmosphere, development opportunities. Taught me a lot about business that I wouldn't have gotten in college. Realworld experience.

    Cons

    Customers make the job difficult. Headquarters team never worked in stores--out of touch. Mysupprt sucks.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time in stores doing the work you want to see.
