I worked at Target full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Flexible hours, team support, great benefits, and quality training creates a great work environment and desire for the employee to grow with the company. Upper management has the right attitude to support the company goals.

Cons

Large corporation with business oriented goals. Employees must be motivated and aggressive to advance. Without good people skills, middle management can be a stumbling block for those desiring to move up.

Advice to Management

Potentially great employees may fall thru the cracks because immediate supervisors (mid management, ETLs, etc) seem to be self-serving and not always company goal oriented.

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

    Pros

    A great place to develop and learn how to manage a business. There are a lot of resources at hand, and multiple opportunities to grow. The pay is competitive with a lot of other retailers. Negotiate hard if you are offered a position.

    Cons

    There is a large "leadership" team in every store. This team is full of driven, enthusiastic, young(mostly), individuals. I stress individuals as there are many different personalities that you will have to learn to work with. Everyone is very competitive even though they will stress "one team, one dream". Try to build great relationships and be the person everyone likes. Do not step on any toes or burn any bridges. People don't forget easily.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to remember to reinforce achievements and hard work when you are evaluating team members who are on corrective action plans. Some of the best employees come out of corrective action.
