    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Knowing about sales and clearance mark downs as soon as they happen.
    The pay was above minimum wage but wasn't worth the stress.

    Cons

    Poor management, scheduling nightmares, understaffed store meant work was never completed on time if done well.

    Advice to Management

    Don't give stores notice of regional management visits. The stores would go through a makeover the day before a visit and the few reliable employees would be scheduled for long shifts to account for visits.

    Pros

    You'll be treated fairly enough.

    Cons

    Getting up at 5 in the morning sucked. Also, whoever is in charge of loading the truck at the distribution center should probably not play jenga with the products.

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

    Pros

    Get a small heads up on sales. Getting fed during holidays was also a plus. And the frequency and length of breaks are a plus, because they get fined if you don't take a break.

    Cons

    They expect A LOT from you. The pay and benefits are kinda nice, but your time and effort will more than make up for it.

    There's also too many active managers. "Too many chiefs". They often have to defer responsibilities and it's often difficult to know who's really in charge.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure employees COMPLETE training modules. Also, during holidays, have more employees per section, not just more emoloyees that work different days

    And a personal observation; inform all employees TO NOT rely on the schedule app as it has bugs.
