Typical retail industry job.
Associate (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – October 23, 2017
The basic job of running a retail store is conceptually not very difficult. It consists of 3 basic functions: keep stock on the shelf, trash off the floor and taking care of the customers.
Despite this, Target's management consistently fails to demonstrate an ability to think out of the box, proactively deal with even simple problems that may arise, let alone complex issues, or leverage any creative solutions geared towards increasing store or corporate productivity or profitability.
There is no well-seasoned leadership here. It's all rote, look-up table, reactive crisis management with these people.
Employee training is virtually non-existent. Information flow is very poor. Employees are rarely kept up to date in a meaningful way. Management never asks how things are going or solicits any information regarding employee quality of workalife concerns. Is there any doubt why they have such a problem retaining employees?
Supply chain management is very poor. Inventories are way excessive and too much time is wasted moving material around.
Employee Discounts. Clean Working environment.
