I have been working at Target part-time (more than a year)

Pros

Target is an extremely ethical company to work for. The company cares about its Team Members. When hours are low, there's always a way to pick up more shifts. They reward the team regularly and have frequent games going on. Target will work with your schedule and there's an open-door policy when you need someone to talk to.

Cons

It's a retail job, so you're dealing with the public.

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours; work life balance; decent pay at the Team Lead position; Excellent pay for exempt managers and above.

    Cons

    Growth potential for current non-exempt employees is minimal as they hire straight out of college.
    Low pay at the front line level with higher expectations than other retailers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many young execs fresh out of college with no clue how to run the business, but very well prepped to move onto the next level. I call them great-on-paper managers prepped to do great on interviews...yet, do not have the business results to back that up. Funny company in that way.

    Pushing out the older experienced workers for fresh out of college kids with no work ethic,

    I worked at Target full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good starting job, friendly atmosphere, good discount. Good hours and vacation pay. Felt like a team and was able to move up in the company easily enough.

    Cons

    Changing atmosphere at Target pushing the college grads in and the experienced older leaders out. Work hard with no breaks even though you are supposed to take them. Too much work to be done in the time permitted. Physically exhausting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit hiring the fresh out of college ETL's with no work experience. Hire and move up from within.
