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 Management

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

    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.
