    Pros

    Overnight is way better than dayside; no customers, less micromanaging team leads, and $1 bonus pay! Co-workers are great; because of the way stocking works you can talk with others without it hurting your performance, which makes the time fly by. If you do well, you also get great pay raises; dollar increases sometimes. If you're good, you can become a TL if you apply and get support from your supervisors.

    Cons

    There's a pay cap and it's low (I think it's <15 but I haven't reached it yet), but when you're single and don't have much expenses it's a great job.

    Pros

    Target taught me a lot about being a smart, strategic, political, and polished manager. After Target, you can do just about anything.

    Cons

    You will work harder than you thought you ever could. The volume of work you will produce is incomparable.

  3. Fun company, Fun community

    Pros

    Worked at target for 2 years in high school as a cart attendant/cashier. The people who work at target were fun and made the day go by fast.

    Cons

    a lot of the customers tend to get angry when they do not like what they here or prices. some of the older employees are difficult to get along with.

    Advice to Management

    Most managers are decent but some managers tend to micromanage people too much. Scheduling can also be a problem.

    Pros

    Target's culture is development-focused. For the most part, leaders encourage their teams to branch out and learn new skills, seek out "thought partners," collaborate cross-functionally, and share/receive feedback.

    Cons

    The flip side to the collaboration focus is that decision-making becomes difficult. With so many partners offering feedback and partners who have their own team's interests in mind, project timelines slow down and the original direction often veers off-course.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to say "no" on behalf of your teams! We all want to be seen as good partners, but given competing priorities for our time, leaders must learn to recognize and take action when true priorities are continually pushed aside for the sake of preserving a partnership.

    Pros

    The culture was great - Target values growth and development of employees, promotes within and the people are friendly and fun to work with.

    Cons

    Target has faced challenges over the years which have led to expense optimization and a contracting workforce. This has changed the environment and morale.

    Pros

    You get to work with a lot of great friendly people, and for the most part, the customers are really pleasant.

    Cons

    I asked to be hired as a full time employee, but I'm averaging roughly 25-30 hours per week.

    Advice to Management

    When you say you're going to hire someone full time, give them full time hours (35-40 per week)

    Pros

    Set schedule
    Full-time, part-time flexibilty,
    Change positions with ease
    Mostly everyone you work with are normal people
    Paid vacation (after 1 year)
    I think its an extra 5 % off,
    You can buy merchandise on lunch break so if you saw something just get knocked down 50% you pretty much know about it before anyone else does.
    You always get to go home at your scheduled time.
    The HR there always has your back.

    Cons

    If you are a team member working day shifts on the floor YOU will get micro managed by most ETLs just for being in thier sight even if youre on other tasks, (this mainly applies to the ETLs that went straight from highschool into college and were placed in the position without prior work experience in retail) you're basicly thier guinea pig for them to practice thier management skills on.

    They start you off at minimum wage unless youre on a floor position/ have a degree.

    Yearly reviews/raises are a slap in the face with a quarter and maybe a dime because the most anyone can get is a 35 cent raise a year.

    The highest position you can make is team lead other positions require a 4 year degree.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to the newer management, when you work in a place that has 300+ employees and you need something to get done go through the proper channels and talk to your teamleads not thier peon.
