I have been working at Target full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Target is always changing and doing what they have to do to stay relevant and profitable. I have never had to worry about being laid off. The company funds many fun events for team members.

Cons

The company seems to prefer hiring externals rather than promoting from within for higher level positions. Compensation and benefits are poor-fair. Managers tend to be inexpirienced and manager turn over is high.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider the benefits that promoting from within could bring the company, employees would be much more invested in the company and turnover would decrease.

    Pros

    If you have no experience, this may be a decent place to work, to get it on the resume.

    Cons

    No work life balance or upward movement exists for some managers. If you have any other options, go elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    N/A. Upper management knows the problems with some stores often stems from the general manager and/or logistics manager, and with lesser frequency others, and refuses to support the right people with the changes that need to happen.

    Pros

    Competitive pay packages. Can be a fun work environment.

    Cons

    Work life balance is poor in retail. Opportunities for advancement are promised but rarely come through. Senior management can make the job very unpleasant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Live up to your own management philosophies. Treat employees with respect. Follow through on promises for development and advancement. Set realistic expectations and provide the leadership and resources to succeed.
