    I worked at Target full-time

    Pros

    Continuos focus on leadership skills
    Professionalism of leadership all around
    Systems work well and they have very few hiccups in their execution of anything they set out to do, you feel a sense of achievement with them, more than most other retailers

    Cons

    Hours and schedules vary often
    You do better if you were externally recruited rather than going through their internal promotional opportunities.
    Very little autonomy as a leader when it come to team or guest issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop wasting time recruiting from colleges and start looking internally for real talent.

    I worked at Target part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The LODs and managers are nice and always helpful. The employee discount is a plus.

    Cons

    It's retail, the hours should be over 30 when you have been there more than 3 months. I don't care about how slow it is. Employees need to live!! Pay is horrible, a yearly raise?? what?? I work my butt off and this is how you repay your employees? Constantly drumming in your brain, can I help you find something, IS QUITE ANNOYING YOU FEEL LIKE you're HARASSING CUSTOMERS. One more thing asking customers to save 5 percent is the worst thing about that job. Who cares!! I thought working at Target would be a great experience, but it wasn't. I was always complemented on how hard I worked. I would talk about a more and what happened to me,but i want to be kept anonymous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to pay your employees so your turn over rate isn't sky high! k cool!
