    Pros

    Managers worked hard to treat all team members with respect. While on overnight shift, work was done in a relaxed environment with many perks, like pizza delivered regularity. Good benefits for part time or full time team members.

    Cons

    Working straight day shift made logistics much more difficult. Balancing 'tasks' and customers needs meant being pulled in many directions. Usually managers seemed to understand, but they were not always prepared. Equipment often slow or not working.

    Advice to Management

    Non. The Canadian stores are closing.

    Pros

    Good hire in new CEO. When its good its great. Tries to treat its team members well. Many people are striving to do the right thing in the workplace and for the team. Pay is typically top notch.

    Cons

    The good leaders in stores are leaving. Leadership cycle of promotion rewards style and flash over substance and results. Senior leaders focused more on themselves than on making the company great or the business better. Senior management appears to be unrealistic to the needs of the store teams, the guest demands and the future of the organization. Most leaders outside the stores add little value to making the corrections necessary to return Target to its past success.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being short sighted, telling teams to do more with less resources and pandering to the companies Best Team Survey will not make the stores or teams successful. Fill the floor with trendy and more innovative items and actually have product and sizes available for our guests to purchase. Reward leaders for running great stores and for taking care of our teams and our guests rather than rewarding leaders who says the 'right' thing or are perky and fun. Your best leaders throughout the company are overlooked and often people are rewarded who over promise and can't deliver or who can deliver but at the expense of the team.

    Pros

    Gives reasonable breaks and team culture is good. Raise every six months and communication between team members is good.

    Cons

    Depends on workers and managers. Barely any chance for promotion. Work and life balance is tough during busy seasons. May work closing shifts and opening shift next day.

    Advice to Management

    Team leaders could be more friendly.
