Filterfront end developer
I have been working at Target as a contractor (Less than a year)
If you dont have an official project, you're encourage to elaborate with other developers on ways to better experiences, think of new ideas to incorporate into various platforms or new ideas in general.
You have to wait about 2 weeks to actually "start". I needed access to local admin on 2 computers as well as software that I needed to be approved for, then need Admin rights on that machine because its OS specific.
I worked at Target part-time (More than a year)
As a large corporation, they do have more resources then small ones...
-Stores are too big, need to simplify and consolidate!!!!
-Have no organized/detailed training program with tests/etc. for new supervisors/managers (especially those who have never supervised others before)!!!!
-Push the red card goals way too much!!!! If your a great company (ex. Wegmans, Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Apple, etc.) you don't need to push any store credit card!
-Grocery store idea was horrible idea in areas where Wegmans, Whole Foods, Trader Joes exist. Management should take significant pay cuts for making horrible decisions like this!
-Need to promote & raise wages more based on performance vs. length of time at company!
-Need to simplify everything!
-Waste a lot of money on useless signage and advertisements!!!! Money would be better invested in employees wages! Many of the best companies don't need to advertise much (ex. Apple & Whole Foods).
-Too strict with uniform rules! (They should look to Whole Foods & Apple and others for guidance)..
-Too Corporate!!!! Top employees treated just like numbers!
Advice to Management
Resign, for better management or think outside the box and to the top/trendy market leaders for advice, if you don't have the brain to do it yourself!!!!!
