    Pros

    Room for advancement, competitive salary. Meaningful work. Autonomy of decision making. Fast paced learning.

    Cons

    Can be difficult to stand out in the crowd. Advancement or being a short term team member can be as short sighted as having a manager who is vindictive. As in everything, it can be as much who you know as what you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The mentor program is sub-par and could use some more stringent parameters.

    Pros

    Some Target stores will actually feed their employees for free and celebrate holidays within the workplace! The starting pay for me was great as well! Never poor management!

    Cons

    None at all! I've never had even one problem working here! WAAAAAY better than Wal-Mart!

    Pros

    Great work experience with amazing fellow employees. Hard work will be recognized in more than one way. The management is very skilled at pushing the vibe among team members.

    Cons

    Sometimes unorganized on properly staffing the store, which is understandable for retail. It gets nearly impossible to make the store look neat especially on weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing, I love the work environment and moral!

    Pros

    If you want to work for a company that is focused on your growth and development, Target is the company for you. Target promotes a fast, fun, and friendly environment. All Leaders are given the tools they need to succeed. Leadership is focused on collaboration, accountability, communication, and promoting a great culture and people like working for the company.

    Cons

    If you are working for the stores, you need to be prepared to work nights and weekends and on holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be to be sure to hold leaders accountable to the Target culture, team, and ensure everyone is promoting the Target brand.
