Former Employee - Team Leader in Boulder, CO
Former Employee - Team Leader in Boulder, CO

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

Pros

- Reasonable pay for retail
- Good work culture
- Good schedule/hours (by retail standards)
- Focus on development
- Diverse and fun team

Cons

- College degree required to promote to ETL. I was told directly that I exceeded the expectations of my position and was ready for promotion but would not be considered without at least a two year degree.
- Inconsistent standards and expectations from store to store.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reconsider the policy that ETL's and above must have a degree. You are losing quality "retail" people because of tis.

    Pros

    Money is good for a retail job. When you start out as an Executive you are treated like a golden child.

    Cons

    No metrics for individual accountablilty. It's their favorite word, "accountable", but it's all perception by a higher up corporate suit. You are forced to play the game, be happy, have no opinion unless they thought of it first. There is a 20/40/60 rule among Exec's. 20 years of service, over 40 years of age and making over 60k and it's goodbye to you by any means they can conjure up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You like to take grads right out of school and fill their heads with fluff about how great their job will be. it only takes a few months for them to see the truth. Anyone over the age of 30 is not "value added" in your words when it comes to your executives.
