    Pros

    Nice casual staff members. Hard working team at times. Good that plastic bags are going. WorkJam app is great

    Cons

    Management is often biased towards select staff members. Some displays don’t keep up with current tends thus is dull to customers. Assistant checkouts aren’t the best

    Advice to Management

    All staff members should be treated the same. All managers should treat their staff the same, some management are power hogs and treat staff very poorly at times.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    You get paid and the customers are great. The work isn’t that great but it’s better than the dole. Hard to think of anything great to say really

    Cons

    Upper management don’t sort out issues in stores. You end up with long term employees that should have been fired years ago. Not much room for progression within the company especially when staff in small towns refuse to find other work.
