    I worked at Target (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    no drive thru. 30 minute lunch

    Cons

    continually changing a broken system doesn't allow it to be fixed. kept throwing away good ideas for improvement and instead would revamp and over complicate the whole system. work flow system has too many steps and is not flexible enough to be efficient.

    Advice to Management

    stop cutting tech hours and spend more time doing hands on work so you know what changes need to be made instead of just making uninformed changes. every store operates differently, its difficult to implement the same system everywhere.let the people that know the job do the job the way it needs to be done. give advancement from within instead of holding back your experienced free-thinking personnel and bringing in fresh grads who have zero experience and zero respect

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

    Pros

    They close the Pharmacy for a half hour for you to actually eat lunch. Good quality support staff. Mostly positive and friendly people to work with.

    Cons

    Technician hours are severely lacking! Great tech's but they don't let them work enough hours. Just like most retailers, there is a huge gap in understanding the perspective and demands placed upon overworked and understaffed healthcare professionals.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that your Pharmacists and Technicians have people's lives in their hands. Staff appropriately. Mistakes in Pharmacy are dangerous and potentially life threatening, appropriate support staff is essential...same goes for all retailers.
