I worked for Target from 2001-2004 and am once again emoloyed there. During my first employment I was promoted twice, once to a "shoe specialist" and again to a "team lead".
I left in '04 because I relocated to Cleveland and there were no positions available. And now in 2010 I am there for seaonal help until I join the military.
I have no opinion on how Walmart treats their employees as I have never worked for them, but I can say Target as gone way down hill, and this is why; every store manager I have ever worked for has gotten fired, and I have worked for four, ever singles ETL, or manager, has been in their 20's, shirt dif was cut for $1.00/hr to .50/hr while they also stated that the other .50 would be added to their paycheck (how about the new employees and the cap for the veterens? It seems to me that all Target cares about is maintaining itself as a young comany while simoutaneously not caring about it's employees.
