I worked at Target (more than a year)

Pros

People you work with
Benefits pckg (health insurance and so-forth)
Knowlege you gain if you're cross-trained in several areas (always a + and they love it)

I was there for 2.5 years and overall loved my job.

Cons

Minimum wage to start out
Terrible payraises
Can be hard to advance
Be careful speaking up with your opinions. They say they're against retaliation, but that isn't below them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When telling TM's you're going to develope them, actually do it. Set a plan and follow through. Be more hands on with your team. Be mindful who you're letting go. You know you won't be able to replace those exceptional TM's.

    Former Employee - Director's Assistant in Miami Beach, FL

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

    Pros

    Attractive work environment. Great benefits and merchandise discounts. 40-hour week with no OT.

    Cons

    40-hour week with no OT -results in cramming 60 hours of work into 40 hours. Not able to leave desk for extended periods of time. Required to work Black Friday (cannot take vacation days) - so no long weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Position should not be hourly. Bachelor's degree should be required.

    Former Employee - Executive Team Leader in Fresno, CA

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

    Pros

    Although the starting salary isn't great for a recent grad (45,000 is generally the offer straight out of college in my area), intelligence, ambition and hard work are rewarded with very fast career and financial advancement.

    Cons

    Rather ruthless treatment of employees. Those who don't perform are pushed out quickly, and if they work for you you'd better be ready to do the pushing.
