Current Employee - GSTL in Missoula, MT (US)

I have been working at Target full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Working around a wide variety of interesting people is fun, but the ability to cross-train and have opportunity for career advancement is above all the best perk.

Cons

Dealing with angry guest from time to time can be high stress, especially as GSTL. But being able to overcome problems and find solutions is very rewarding and makes it worth the tough times.

    I worked at Target (more than an year)

    Pros

    People you work with
    Benefits pckg (health insurance and so-forth)
    Knowlege you gain if you're cross-trained in several areas (always a + and they love it)

    I was there for 2.5 years and overall loved my job.

    Cons

    Minimum wage to start out
    Terrible payraises
    Can be hard to advance
    Be careful speaking up with your opinions. They say they're against retaliation, but that isn't below them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When telling TM's you're going to develope them, actually do it. Set a plan and follow through. Be more hands on with your team. Be mindful who you're letting go. You know you won't be able to replace those exceptional TM's.

    Former Employee - Team Leader in Boulder, CO (US)
    Former Employee - Team Leader in Boulder, CO (US)

    I worked at Target full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Reasonable pay for retail
    - Good work culture
    - Good schedule/hours (by retail standards)
    - Focus on development
    - Diverse and fun team

    Cons

    - College degree required to promote to ETL. I was told directly that I exceeded the expectations of my position and was ready for promotion but would not be considered without at least a two year degree.
    - Inconsistent standards and expectations from store to store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reconsider the policy that ETL's and above must have a degree. You are losing quality "retail" people because of tis.
