    "Check Nepotism in Merchandising"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Minnetonka, MN
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Minnetonka, MN

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    At this point, until HR does something about the situation, there are no positive reviews.

    Cons

    Executives are making sure their family members are hired (daughter- hint, hint), and then fast tracking their promotions. The entitlement and egregious behavior is inappropriate and should be a disciplinary offense.

    Advice to Management

    DO NOT allow Executives to hire family members into the department that they oversee.

    Pros

    Cons

    Average pay, not much room to grow

    Advice to Management

    Pay your hardest workers mire

    Pros

    Most of the staff are friendly and great! They always have snacks provided in the lobby for the team. Their training program is meh.

    Cons

    Didn't really get the amount of hours I wanted, and the schedule I requested. If you're looking for consistent hours retail is not the best option.

    Pros

    Fun, fast paced, great team work and a very social place to work

    Cons

    wages, stress of getting high school kids to care - when they don't and don't perform well, it affects your review

    Pros

    Good pay and that is it

    Cons

    if you work overnights they work you to the bone, I couldn't even stop to get a drink of water. Unpaid breaks but are not allowed to do anything on them. That is an hour of sitting there doing nothing. Very little training, I was just thrown to the wolves and criticized the first day

    Advice to Management

    Just treat your employees better, there is more to it than just the pay.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work life balance is great. Benefits are really good too. There is a lot of space given to explore your creativity and ideas are not shot down.

    Cons

    Career path is unclear. Recent layoffs has been a struggle to deal with because of the uncertainty involved. Minimum yearly raise is below industry standards for my job type.

    Advice to Management

    It takes a long time to get promoted. If that can be tackled then employees would be better motivated.

    I worked at Target full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Generally stable, most people pretty good. Good place for young folks to start.

    Cons

    Style valued over substance. Highly political, and don't like old people.

    Advice to Management

    Lead. Stop managing. Lead. Don't know what I'm talking about, that's the problem
