    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Set schedule
    A little bit of freedom to merchandise // if you know your job.
    You have a great team in soft lines that you get to work train and work with.

    Cons

    Most days you are a glorified stocker.
     Spend your days picking up clothing up off the FLOOR.
    We should not "Be in Charge of Fan Central"
    The expectations out way the time allotted.
    Not enough people planned for VMGs & POGs.
    Workload unrealistic.
    You do not have a Team any more, and Peers - don't step up to help.

    Advice to Management

    You need to go back to the drawing board and figure out how to utilize the VM. We are not Stock people, We don't work nights and weekend, We are not LODs. Need to be more appreciated and MERCHANDISE daily. Training the SL team just as important. VMs should be Executives like in many other reatiers. Stop treating us like glorified stocke people. If you hired correctly they have 10+ years.

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

    Pros

    I’ve met some amazing guests that have become some amazing friends. I’m sorry, but I really can’t think of any more Pros to working here.

    Cons

    If one of the ETL’s do not like you, they all do not like you. They gang up on you. It doesn’t matter how hard you work you will never get any recognition for it. If you are not a part of their clique, you are a NOBODY. They give you rules to follow as far as returns and coupon usage and then they will go against you right in front of the guest and make you look a fool. They teach you if a price tag does not match a DPCI it is considered a “ticket switch” and do not honor that price. Then when a guest complains they ask you why you didn’t honor the price?? You are pretty much damned if you do & damned if you don’t. It’s very confusing to say the least. They offer peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as a benefit, but they take it away as a punishment. Yes, grown adults we are talking about here.

    Advice to Management

    Please think for yourself. Be unique. Quit following the crowd. It’s sad to see how you talk about employees behind their back. The whole time I’m listening to you, I’m also wondering what you are saying about me to other team members. I feel as though I’m in high school.

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

    Pros

    Working at Target wasn't that bad, sometimes it was slow sometimes it was super busy. For me being a shy person I didn't get that many questions asked which I liked.

    Cons

    My other coworkers never really did anything, nights would drag on because we were always waiting for them to finish zoning their area. LOD's didn't seem to care either.
