    Pros

    Target is a profitable, growth company. They have a solid vision of what they need to do to remain competitive.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the senior leadership has swiftly transitioned the culture to be a work shop with very little value or respect for existing talent. The culture and respect for the team and the talent was how they built a reputation that attracted and retained the very best. They will continue to attract the very best but they will not retain them. Target has always embraced new approaches in a very "swing the pendulum" kind of way, almost certainly they go too far and have to course correct down the road. The culture they are building now will experience the same journey.

    I worked at Target (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Store discount was nice but not great. To get a total 15% discount you were required to get their Red Card. Scheduled two weeks out for work.

    Cons

    Hourly wage - poor. Advanced opportunities were not discussed.

    Pros

    The employee discount is alright and access to health insurance, if you can work enough hours to afford it. Depending on the culture of your store, they may do little things to encourage you. They give away free food on certain holidays.

    Cons

    There is no work life balance if you want to be successful. I was never shorted in my paychecks but my hours would always be cut so I could never earn overtime or holiday pay. (example: you get time and a half for certain holidays. Rather than pay me time and a half, they would schedule me for fewer hours that week so I was still being paid at my overall base rate) Once I worked an 11 hour shift because someone called out and we were short staffed. Rather than pay me overtime, they took me off the work schedule the next day. I no called no showed once, because I had attempted suicide and management told me that I should have still called into work and threatened to write me up.

    Advice to Management

    Try harder to see employees as human beings, allow us to have a work life balance. The pay is awful but that's industry standard. Try to be more understanding about mental illness.

    Pros

    -Flexible Scheduling -No other Pros.... Be wary of the retail business model before accepting positions with Target. You are only a pawn in their corporate greed game.

    Cons

    -Political Games -Unqualified leadership -Limited advancement -Forced to do jobs outside your work center for the "team". -Laughable "Raises"

    Advice to Management

    Not much to say, it is a retail company.

    Pros

    Great products and services to consumers

    Cons

    "Expect more pay less" was the internal slogan as well. Poor decision making in IT area. Your experience will depend on your manager.

    Advice to Management

    IT Management was a sick place of corporate climbing.

    Pros

    The people that end up working at Target are some of the best. It's a fast paced job, so a great team definitely helps.

    Cons

    Having to push red cards feels like you're being pushy to the guests, management wasn't my favorite thing there... No one was on the same page. The hours were hard and there was no room to grow within my position. It took eight months before I was allowed to train for the job I had originally applied for, and even then I wasn't fully trained.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to work on being on the same page. With eight or so different executive team leads, and about the same amount of team leaders, there's a lot of room for miscommunication. Everyone should have the same expectations and focus as one another. Also, listening to your team helps a lot.

    Pros

    They give you 10% employee discounts.

    Cons

    Work you like a slave. If you have a doctor or dentist appointment and you let them know 2 weeks in advance, then they say you can't change the date because the schedule has been done 3 weeks in advance. When you tell them you can't change your appointment, they tell you that you not flexible and your service is no longer needed.
