    "A pretty decent starter job, but not a place for long-term career."

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Target full-time for more than 19 years

    Pros

    Easy to get hired. Positive "team oriented" company. Lots of different job options and experiences.

    Cons

    Inconsistent hours unless you promote. Management on up generally has never worked a single day in retail before becoming a manager. Most managers are "outside hires" straight out of business college, so it's nearly impossible to "work your way up" to that. Management is not a reliable resource if you need feedback about specifics on what do in your position, cuz they've never done the dirty entry-level work.

    Advice to Management

    As most management hasn't worked in the "trenches" of the company before becoming a manager, there is a strong disconnect between management and the workers, and creates a "class system". Spend some time learning and appreciating what the minimum wagers under you actually DO and provide for the company.

    Advice to Management

    There are several employees that outdo themselves on a daily basis, and do they receive the credit they deserve? NO! I think that management at Target is not consistent, and employees are not treated in a fair way. Its inevitable, the markets are always changing and companies must restructure, however, Target has done as much as they possibly can for it to not have a spiraling down fall to their guests. The company will...
