  1. The corporation was organized and overall the same day to day task.

    I worked at Target

    Pros

    They made sure you work what was on the schedule. It was opportunities to climb the ladder of higher positions. The job had a family feel with mostly great communication. If you're young or looking for an organized corporation to work at Target is a good choice. This was a good first job for me being in school it became repetitive so it was more easy. I was able to save money for college and felt that everyone looked out for each other.

    Cons

    You might have to pick up slack or be accountable for your teams work and have to work diligently and harder depending on how many member are working and how well they are at their job, but no bad work will eventually go unnoticed no matter what position you are working. Sales floor is of course the most work but what I enjoyed the most.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management will critique anyones work no matter you're position by asking other team members with good reasoning. Interview process will be two managers asking the same questions, you may answer the same just about how help others, why do you like target, and they usually will give you a job opportunity if they are interviewing a person (depending how well you answer).

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

    Pros

    People working there. Work atmosphere. Respectful managers.

    Cons

    Your chances of moving up in the company are not high, unless you are studying a career related to it.

    Seek for talent in people already working in the company.

    I have been working at Target part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Your experience is based on the Target you work at and your supervisor. I was lucky to have very supportive and friendly supervisors! The Pharmacist I worked for put profound trust in me and always "had my back". I had subbed at other Targets and the technicians were very aggressive towards their pharmacist and vice versa, so it all depends.

    Cons

    Target pharmacies are not as progressive as other pharmacies, which requires both the pharmacist and pharmacy technicians to do a lot of tedious work!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pharmacy coverage is very important for a pharmacy to run smoothly and to perform to the best of its ability. I think it is vital to help our pharmacists! PLEASE MORE COVERAGE!

    I worked at Target

    Pros

    You get good experience, a good job to start if your in school, and they will work around your school hours. They use updated technology and great commication is used between the team.

    Cons

    Be prepared to go beyond and above for a customer. Also be open to work in different departments at short notice. Target is a very busy store on the weekends and holidays. Executives will monitor your area and keep a check on you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to provide extra support on busy nights when the store is under staffed. Always be respectful and show your store team that you apriecate their efforts and smile more often.

    Pros

    Everyone is very nice overall. The company is good about breaks and lunches

    Cons

    They have vibe talks at the end of each shift nd you have to discuss with a manager about your day if you got Red Cards

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand red cards are important but maybe try actually caring about us a little more

    I have been working at Target part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I love basically all the people I work with, I like that I can be trained to work in different departments, I like that I get paid more than minimum wage on entry and of course the discounts.

    Cons

    Small amount of hours in January and February, having to deal with rude "guests" occasionally. Also, they really nag you if you don't get at least one Red Card a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pushing the Target red card so seriously, a lot of people do not want them and that needs to be accepted
