I worked at Target

Pros

Pay is decent. For management, pay straight out of college with no experience is good. There is always opportunity for advancement. Friendly atmosphere.

Cons

It is retail. Be expected to work nights and weekends. Many managers are straight out of college, many without experience.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide better training for management. Focus on employees with individual development plans. This is a great company to work for if you are into retail.

    I worked at Target

    Pros

    Good job security. Good pension when they had it.

    Cons

    Good job security and most people knew it was hard to get fired so one of two things typically happened. The person would go belly up and nothing, or find a nice "political" position and do again nothing. Belly up wouldn't get a raise but didn't care, "political" position people got promoted and got raises. Very frustrating when you are the one tasked to accomplish something and surrounded by all the dead weight. As with any corporation you have politics, but here it of a magnitude greater. Management is a joke at Property Development (or what ever they call it now) and HR are a bunch of recent college grads with no clue. Kind of a strange circus. If you looking to slide along and are good at smoothing the Boss you can get to easy street. If you are serious about your career then by all means STAY AWAY.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at what your people and what they actually do if anything. If you are one of the managers looking to build some kind of empire by a body count under you....well shame on you as you are doing the shareholders of Target a great disservice and should be shown the door.
