    Pros

    Great starting compensation at the executive level. Good benefits and company retirement plan.

    Very hard to find a work life balance. Also trying to manage the store as well as your own work center during the days you're LOD are very difficult

    I have been working at Target

    Pros

    Good work culture, everyone is friendly and nice, quick problem solving, software is fine

    Cons

    Not a lot of benefits, long working hours, sometimes it feels like there aren't any opportunities to keep climbing up and improve working conditions

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your lower employees a little bit better, some overarching benefits would really help out those of us on

    Pros

    - Flexible schedule - Easy-to-use POS system - Available store-to-store transfers (I currently transfer between the store near my college dorm and the store near my home during the summer) - Friendly atmosphere - There are supervisors (GSA/GSTL) who are always nearby to help you with any problems you run into - Cross- training for other departments is available (ex: a cashier can train to also work at Guest Service,...

    Cons

    - Only 10% discount (you are also forced to pay with cash if you don't have a REDcard or Target Giftcard) - Cashiers have to sell credit and debit cards to guests, and are sometimes reprimanded for not meeting their daily quota (it can be extremely difficult to convince a customer to sign up) - Hours are cut drastically following the holiday season (tip: if you are seasonal,this is when you should work your hardest to...

    Advice to Management

    - Place less pressure on employees to sell credit cards, because it is very distracting. - Train employees to spot coupon fraud, and fake checks (I had to teach myself this and had to learn the hard way by accidentally accepting a fake check) - Give each cashier a walkie talkie so that they can ask for help when the GSA is not around or is busy. - Allow cashiers to take it upon themselves to call team members on the floor...
