No advancement if you have a kid
Target Team Member (現在は退職) – Sacramento, CA – 2018年7月15日
Was passed over multiple times for promotions due to me having a child. I was complimented numerous times by
District Managers on how well my displays where done, but when ever I applied for the softlines manger position, I was passed over to bring in someone who was fresh out of college and had no clue what they were doing. It was rough when I found out it was due to having a child, that prevented me from moving up.
The work was very fast paced, everything was on a time frame and the manger even had a habit of trying to complete workloads before they were even able to get done [such as product not being in the store] thus causing her to get angry at employees for things being empty, even though we were just following her orders.
They used to give back to their employees by throwing BBQ or providing meals during the holidays, but that stopped and now employees are lucky to even get a thank you for their hard work.
The best part of the job definitely goes to being able to met a variety of people, the one good thing that Target does still do is hire a wide range of people.
The particular store I worked at also had a habit of going through multiple store managers, during my time frame there I had over 6 different Store managers, and each one progressively worse than the last.
decent benefits if you are full time, meeting many people
no advancement, constant management change
