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

Pros

Great people to work with. It is easy work.

Cons

Tend to play favorite when giving recognition and promotions. They keep raising the work load and qualirity of work but takes away recognition and other incentives to work harder (doesn't make sense).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't take away incentives and raise the work load. Cross train EVERYONE in the store not just certain people and always relying on them.

    I worked at Target full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great worklife balance and team culture focus. Plenty of opportunity available. Target has great company vision and a solid growth model.

    Cons

    As the industry is becoming more cost conscious, understandably stores are under more scrutiny to do more with less (i.e. payroll) while continuing to attain ever rising operational metric goals. Store team leaders are prone to become casualties of war. Development and advancement of quality executives is impeded if they happen to be in a metrically underperforming store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be cautious of the impact of working lean and trickle down pressure (aka accountability and/or negative reinforcement) by senior leadership has on the store culture and the team members accountable for the reality of executing company strategies "in the field".

    I have been working at Target full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked for three previous retail companies in a part-time and full-time capacity in both associate and management roles. Compared to my experience with these companies, Target offers:
    - More stable company with measured growth and has more opportunities for advancement
    - Recruiters and senior management (store, district, HR) have long-term careers with the company (7+ years) which reflects positively on the culture of the company
    - Comprehensive benefit package for salaried employees
    - A progressive, fresh brand that balances cost and design for a value-based consumer market

    Cons

    - The interview process is potentially extensive and exhausting. This is both a con and a pro.
    - The company does not provide relocation expenses or signing bonuses for first-hire store positions.
    - Work/life balance is difficult in a 50+ hour work week, but this is the nature of retail management and not a specific 'con' of Target.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on keepin' on.
