      Cons

      Your store management will greatly impact your development/promotions/perception

      Advice to Management

      You’re doing fine, but the lack of actual accountability upper store management (STLs and ETLs) are held to is insanely low. I worked at a store that was amazing, then got transferred (via promotion) to a store that was awful, and subsequently left because everyone there was lost. TLs and SrTLs have very little ability to effect change, despite being the majority of management, to actually do anything, but are consistently...

        I worked at Target full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Pays well, and most of management is kind.

        Cons

        Ignores availability, and punishes you for not attending, even when notifying in advance that you were unable to work at that time. Applied for year round, but was laid off, told I was put in the system as seasonal. Tldr; Management can't keep anything straight.

        Advice to Management

        Communicate and actually fix problems when you clearly know how.

        leadership training opportunities, they encourage TLs to work up to ETLs. Pay is pretty good for the job that it is. Schedule for TLs is fairly consistent.
