    Nice breaks, great management, good hours

    I worked at Target full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced environment so be prepared to run!

    Cons

    Company is streamlining like everyone else so you will be required to do tasks with less and less people.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your team. They are the backbone of your business and if they’ve been there for any length of time respect their opinion and their ideas. You want flexibility from them so be flexible for them when hours plummet and they need to get a 2nd job to pay their bills. Respect longevity because in today’s world that’s an asset not a liability.

    I have been working at Target as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Target offers competitive salaries and lots of growth opportunities for its senior staff members.

    Cons

    You will have to earn every penny of said competitive salary, and the growth opportunities come from turnover. The ETL's and STL's have either been around forever, or they are new employees; this is never a good sign. Working at Target is soulless work but for some, its a passion.

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

    Pros

    $12/hr is decent for retail

    Cons

    Incredibly unprofessional management, peers don’t know their place and try to correct/discipline people within the same job title, favoritism, ignorant to medical injuries/disabilities

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the favoritism, stop being rude to employees for no reason, be on the same page when giving employees instruction, if you don’t know someone’s name READ THE REQUIRED NAME TAGS instead of repeatedly and blatantly calling people the wrong name, don’t ignore employee set availability, don’t hang up on employees repeatedly calling and waiting on hold to speak with you.
