  1.  

    Wonderful people to work with, and the company as far as I can tell is the best of retail. Promotions can be tricky.

    I have been working at Target full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -AWESOME team member culture and spirit around the stores. I have traveled to a half dozen of the stores in the Utah/Idaho region and the team "spirit" (with lack of a better term) is phenomenal for the most part.
    - Lots of volunteer opportunities for those of you that are interested in making an impact in the community.
    - Competitive pay
    - If you put yourself out there, you WILL be rewarded.
    - WONDERFUL team leaders and executives that will, if you put yourself out there, help you with development.
    - DISCOUNT!
    - An awesome place to use as a stepping stone and develop those skills needed in this competitive job market.

    Cons

    Schedule, Schedule, but it is retail after all. Lots of holidays spent leaving early or entirely away from your family.

    POLITICS is the name of the game when it comes to promoting sometimes. It's not the execs on the store level, once you have their support (which can be hard enough to gain) but you better be a GREAT BS'er for the group leader.

    Benefits, at least from what I can tell in my region, are questionable and insurance policies can fluctuate.

    Depending on your area/position, your hours as a team member can be cut year to year, or you could gain hours. Obviously, during the holidays most team members are gaining hours, so word to the wise; work your ass of and prove yourself if you would like hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure that the Target hierarchy is fully understood for entry-level team members. It appears that team members feel lost when it comes to knowing what to do to move up and get frustrated. It is hard to understand how Target works from a CORPORATE point of view without asking tons of questions...not everyone is like this and need a little helping hand and those team members could be great in bigger positions if given a little direction. Don't make your team members afraid of the "jet", don't show YOUR fear of the "jet", motivate them and don't make them so incredibly worried about how walks go, but motivate them to do the best job they can and be proud with the provided effort. Also, bring the APS position back.

    I have been working at Target full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, helpful management who can help you grow. Exciting work environment, expect something different every day. Higher class of customers than most retail stores.

    Cons

    Low starting pay, limited growth opportunities. Hectic holiday schedules. Highly variant week-by-week schedules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Customer experience is what sets Target apart from it's competition. Treat your employees with the same respect you show your store guests and they will pass it on to the customers.
