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

    Pros

    Eh its spacious and theres always parking

    Cons

    -There is always robbery and its unsafe at night.
    - Upper management like district managers are really horrible. ALways changing things every day and so because of that nothing ever gets done. Then they blame us for not finishing stuff, but they always change the game plan (especially last minute).
    -THey are also rude too. Some of them feel so "entitled" as well. You dont want management like that who just abuse their position. You want management who wants things done and so that we can gain reputation.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at the location on 2675 Geary Blvd in SF like a 6 months ago.
    - My advice is to Target CEO himself. Fire the entire upper management and replace them all. They are they reason why nothing gets done and no one is happy. Some people left because the upper management doesnt know how to run a store and therefore no one is really happy working there.

    Seriously they need to pay me like 50/hour to deal with this kind of management.

    I have a few coworkers who quit as well after I left.
