Featured Review

Former Freelancer - Cashier

I worked at Target for more than a year

Pros

Target is a great place to gain work experience. The managers are caring and thoughtful and taught me everything I need to know. The workplace is quite chill and the whole crew is quite friendly.

Cons

Long working hours during the chrismas season

Former Employee - Marketing

I worked at General Mills full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The people I worked with were professional, best in class to learn from and develop. Half day Friday and good pay rate meant I loved my time at GM. If you are mobile then the world is your oyster as... they really have moved people everywhere from Australia. Regional office in Europe has very strong leadership and holds markets to account.

Cons

Culture a bit clicky in parts and favourites rise faster than others. Lots of night calls due to time difference can be taxing on family time. Centralised functions to regional / Europe teams can... slow things down.

Advice to Management

Be clear and strong. Don't tolerate bad behaviour. Reward the good.
