Current Employee - Executive Team Leader - Assets Protection

I have been working at Target

Pros

1. Promotion Opportunity
2. Work/Life Balance in the Retail World
3. Transfer Opportunities (Located across the country)
4. Competitive Salary in the Retail World

Cons

1. Work/Life Balance - If you don't monitor this, you can get burnt out
2. Benefits - They're okay, but I think they could be much better
3. Holding team members accountable - Too many chiefs around corrective actions. A lot of talk with nothing getting approved.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1. Let STL's have more power in the choosing of their executives. They are the ones who have to work them day in and day out.
2. Develop non-adjustable templates for writing corrective actions to better hold team members accountable.
3. Take a harder look at benefits across the board, they need to improve.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Target full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of really nice and smart people, strong and consistent processes, lots of focus at corporate headquarters on developing its employees and planning their careers, generally fair meritocracy, great ability to see your work impact millions of shoppers around the country, great ability to quickly assume a huge level of responsibility quickly

    Cons

    Difficulty effecting change due to increasing levels of bureaucracy, slow responses to shift to online shopping, decreased emphasis on fashion and trend due to greater focus on grocery and commodities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the merchants be merchants! Keep them focused on finding the best product, the best brands, and getting out more in the marketplace. Know when to follow the rules and standard process and know when to let the merchants break the rules.
