Target is a piece of  crap store they suck. Their return policy sucks and their employee are all @$$ holes, and just like Walmart they sell cheap Chinese junk. It is my hope that they file Chapter 11 and GOB which would make me happy.

Well, it's not really fair to say all Target employees are "a-holes" as you say. I am a Target employee, and I would certainly hope I'm not such a person.

I work for Target- and like anything there is good and bad. The main thing is that they are a bit pricier than Wal-Mart and even what Ames and Hills used to charge. They are more geared to middle class and lower middle class shopper. They are cleaner, they have alot of interesting products you don't see everywhere and they make some of the really fashionable (okay uppity) affordable enought. Don't get me wrong, everything has its bad points but they are such a nice alternative to Wal-Mart that I can overlook all the red and trying so hard to be so hip. I still think they are the last decent discounters out there to shop and work at. IMHO:mrpink:

Target stores tend to be clean, brightly lit and well, I feel safer. Wal-Mart...well, they are skanky, dirty, dingy, products are often damaged on the shelf and 3 out of 4 people are not speaking English. Don't see that in Target or even K mart for that matter.

I like them, but when you see something REALLY good, and come back a week later, it's gone.  And I don't think people bought it.  Nothing ever stays the same at Target.:rolleyes:

After going a few more times with my wife I am really changing my outlook about Target.  Their merchandise is better quality than Walmart and I also will eat my words and say that the associates are helpful and seem to be happy that they work there. I just hope that they are not under paid like Walmart. I would actually go to Target and/or kmart to get what I need. I am sorry if I have offended anyone who works for Target for my earlier comments!

It's so easy to slime Wal-Mart. I know someone who just got hired at Wal-Mart and received almost $2 above the state minimum and she has no prior retail experience (not to mention she's going back to school in a month!). That's almost extraordinary for a minimum wage position who assures quarterly evaluations and ability to achieve increases with each one. What I find unusual is that Target repeatedly slips under the radar for its business practices while Wal-Mart, albeit the #1 retailer in the U.S. (and for that they will be targeted and watched closely), is constantly attacked but is probably one of the best retailers you can work for.

It's funny that you mentioned the amount people are getting paid off the street to work. At my store, they are getting a ridiculous amount starting, with no retail experience. For some of us Veterans who have been there for 7, 13, 17+ years, it's hard to ignore that fact. I guess it is an inclination to try and get applicants, but the help quality seems to diminish as time goes on.

Unless Wal-Marts changed that much since 2005 I have to disagree. working there for 8 months wasn't a good experience at all. They started me out at only $6.70 hr. They would take advantage of you- schedule you whenever for no rhyme or reason and they might decide to cut your hours out of the blue. They would work you as hard as humanly possible and have no symphany for you situations, as I got yelled at over the phone by the manager because I had a car accident when I was out of state and told them I couldn't come to work for a few days. They told me I better find a train or plane or something to get there because I need to be at work. Even though the store has like 500 employees. And they take you for a ride for raises. When they hire you they say for your 90 days you can either get a .40 or .55 increase, the .55 being for doing excellent work. Well I did everything I could to get that .55 raise and even my dept. manager said I was the best worker they had seen. Management still only gave me the .40. And I was talking with employees and I never found a single person that got the .55. They just tell you that so they'll get more work out of you to try and get it. When working in electronics we were so short handed most of the time I was forced to take out and load large tvs in peoples small cars by myself. Including putting a 32" tube tv into a geo metro, the tv was over 120 pounds, it was raining, and I had to take it out of the box while the old person tells me not to mess up their car. Did Wal-mart give me any thanks for things like that...no. And that kind of stuff happened often. Wal-marts benefits are bad. Discount is only 10% and its Not good on food, sale or clearance merchandise, and they screwed me over with my insurance. They never told me when I was able to enroll in it and when I thought came the time for me to enroll they said oh no your time has already passed to enroll, you have to wait for open enrollment (which was like 6 months away). I bought into their stock as they tried very hard to get you to buy into it when you start with them. Needless to say I ended up losing money with my stock because it went down so much. I could go all day about Wal-mart being a shoddy employer, as I have first hand experience.

If you guys think Walmart is so good and Target is flying under the radar then you need to click on the enclosed link and watch the documentary.

I also have nothing against Target (or as the upper middle class call it "Tarzhay"), they have a lot of good merchandise. I bought my SpongeBob SquarePants lamp there. For a discount store, they are a bit on the pricey side, BUT, they have lots of stuff that you can't find at Walmart*, Kmart, ShopKo, Meijer, or Kohl's. They are one of the better retailers out there. The only other thing that bothers me about Target is that the chicken strips I ordered at the snack bar were just TOO hot!:hurt:

Target is overrated. They are really not any better than Wal-Mart when it comes to corporate affairs. People just think they're better because of their ''hip'' atmosphere.

Just because their stores are clean doesn't make them a better company. Target also has a ton of stuff made in China, just like Wal-Mart. And by the way, Target has Starbucks in their stores, and those are extremely unhealthy. Both have good stores, but corporate wise they're not all that different.

I still miss the discounters of the past, however we should consider targets past too. They started in the early 60's and slowly expanded and upgraded their stores, just like all our sadly missed department stores.
Except..... Obviously they are doing something right as their still here with presents coast to coast and competing with big box Walmart.

After watching the Penn & Teller: BS episode about Wal-Mart on YouTube, I learned that Wal-Mart is doing more good than people think, and honestly, they don't deserve all of the hate they get. I am sorry for arguing, I think that neither are bad companies, and both have good quality in their stores. I understand most people don't agree though.

Target is fake, a ripoff store. They sell ripoff merchandise. They do have some interesting store designs. But who needs Target when we have Sears, Kmart, etc?

Shouldn't it be the other way around? Target was ranked #6 on the top U.S. retailer list in 2008, Sears at #8. Didn't even see Kmart on there -- who really needs Kmart should be the question. As Kmart has closed stores in just the last decade, Target has rapidly expanded.

Target lures customers with unique designs/designers, store layouts and ideas... are you really impressed with both Sears and Kmart's embarrassing business models? Sears with its 40-60% off everything in the store and Kmart's mismatched, dated decor and crowded, messy shelves. Both can't even find a single idea to stick with much less be successful! Don't get me wrong, shopping Kmart is pure nostalgia, but it's old, tired and smelly -- that doesn't get you ahead only keeps you down.

I don't work for Target, but admittedly, I enjoy spending retail dollars there than even Walmart. They've unleashed one of the most invigorating retail models that centers around value and quality that even Walmart has been threatened by and has always been a fun experience shopping there. At Kmart, not just one but all the ones around here, I feel like the store's going to be closing up next month. And Sears? There's a retailer whose really fallen from grace.

I usually don't jump into these "bashing" posts, mainly because a lot of complaints are baseless but why exactly do you dislike Target?

One thing I can't stand about Target, now after I read about it online, is that they refused to donate to a Vietnam War Veterans memorial in 2003, and they also refused to let the Salvation Army collect donations at their stores. Yes, Target may have nice stores and nice merchandise, but that is just being greedy right there. Why can't Target spare a little bit of cash, out of the billions they have, to commemorate the Vietnam War, one of the most brutal wars in our nation's history? The veterans deserve respect for all they did for this great country, and a rich corporation like Target should have donated.

They don't donate to anyone and they don't let anyone stand outside their store to collect money for anything.
