I have been working at Target full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Company is really focused on developing yourself from financial well being, to doing more within the company. They are constantly rolling out new initiatives to do more for the team. The company is one of the few that is not laying people off and is actually still profitable durring the recession. You can get promoted quickly if you are eager, self- motivated and constantly getting feedback

Cons

Not a very consistent schedule, some days you are working to close others 4-7 am, as an ETL on your feet constantly for 10 hours shifts so very rough on the body, the company is always trying to maximize their profit which usually means cutting payroll and the work falling on salary, can be very stressful, always multiple new "focuses"

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Avoid putting so much on employees to help with turnover, I think the biggest part of this is with payroll. The company is currently expanding to Canada and trying to cut expenses, but it is greatly affecting stores and the stress level when payroll is bare minimum and workload is very large currently.

    Very Good Experience

    I have been working at Target full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    10% team member discount on everything in the store helped me save on grocery bills. Easy job (stocking shelves). Worked when the store was closed so no dealing with customers!

    Cons

    Wore red & khaki, everyday. Obsessed with 'brand'. Often put up against unrealistic deadlines. Worked as a 'team', so a few could slack off, causing the others to have to work faster, harder.

  2.  

    Target is a very fun and friendly work place.
