I have been working at Target (more than 3 years)

Pros

If you are young, beautiful, and blonde you will get hired, if not you may get hired but never promoted.
You will get a lunch.
You get 10% off purchases.
Even the people who hate you smile, the bigger the smile, th bigger the hate.

Cons

Company promotes genuine faking.
That smile is turning a knife in your back.
No matter what they say the reason is, truth is you didn't get the job because they hired a friend or relative.
They target people they dislike for termination. dosen't mean you did something wrong, they just don't like you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Target full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Hourly salary and benefits were satisfactory. They have a good dental plan.

    Cons

    The store was run inefficiently. Management would not listen to any other opinions but theirs. They would bully other employees to leave work if the employee was not looked at as Target material.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a life.

    I worked at Target

    Pros

    Pay and benefits
    Excellent place to begin a retail career

    Cons

    focus on diversity and youth not quality people, No chance for advancement unless you fit the "mold" management in stores over 45...50..55...60 is rare. You will most likely not have the chance to retire from this company. No value given to good to excellent long term employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversity means all ages, races,and genders. Mr. Steinhafel, are you aware of what the focus of your company is on? If it applied to you, you would have been let go by now.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO
