Pros

Target is a great company to work for. They offer great benefits and are extremely flexible with scheduling. You can learn a lot from working at Target and they have training programs that are affective whem implemented properly.

Cons

It is very political at every level. It can be hard to move up within the company if you do not fit the stereotypical mold of an Executive. The pay for leaders who promoted from within the company is much lower than the people who are hired in as leaders from outside of the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Honor your senior employees more and make sure that you are proactive about any hiring needs. Also slow down on promoting current Executives so quickly. Some are so focused on moving to the next level that they are not working in the present and helping to develop their subordinates that would like the opportunity and knowledge to promote as well.

    Pros

    Execellent trainer program
    Great teams
    Nice guest
    LOVE the designer partnerships
    Upper management very knowledgeable and forthcoming with information.
    A lot of visibility during District, Group and Corporate visits

    Cons

    At some stores...WORK LIFE BALANCE does not exist
    Partnerships with peers should be a lot better...need to trust

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are not going to pay overtime then your SM's should really drive work life balance in their stores. Also 40 hours a week should be more than enough time to get work done.
