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

Pros

Great team members who actually care about the quality of the work they do. Ability to change jobs fairly frequently.

Cons

Payroll versus tasks at the store level gets more ridiculous every month. Health benefits changed this past year to an account based plan that raised my out of pocket cost for a Dr visit from $35 to $95 per visit. I feel like the $179 biweekly medical insurance premium would be better staying in my pocket instead...

Advice to Management

Target truly believes in it's motto of "Expect more, pay Less". Customers think it applies to them, but it is how corporate treats the team. The current corporate drive is to expect more from every team member. At the store level it is not unusual for a sales floor team member to have to help stockers with the push(due to no payroll hours), backup cashier frequently(sue to no payroll hours), help the instock team with the hourly batches(due to no payroll at the store level), while trying to set and fill planograms the planogram team was unable to finish(due to no payroll), all while running like pavlov's dogs to every call box within 60 seconds. Hard to do when you are one of 3 total team members covering the entire sales floor and are on a register. Payroll has been squeezed enough at the store levels, time to squeeze at the corporate level now guys....

    I worked at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The perks of working at Target are the benefits, not talking about health insurance because it could be way better, it is very affordable for families, you don't have to pay per child. The 10% employee discount, friendly co-workers, family life insurance also make it bearable.

    Cons

    Working at store that are in a bad location lead to cut hours. The management needs to reorganize so some teams aren't taking up other teams hours. During slumps the unrealistic goals of the upper management demoralizes the team. Stop focusing on all the numbers and support your team.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being selfish and help your team out. Just because you have a degree doesn't mean you sit on your rear. A good team needs a leadership from upper management not just immediate managers.

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

    Pros

    It's a job and that's just about it, might as well work at Walmart.

    Cons

    Don't get hurt there they will lie to target pay and benefits about how many days you missed due to you're work related injury. It went from 4 days to none even after speaking to lazy etl hr!!!! They get you so frustrated so you will just quit and no more worker's comp!!! How is that fair? Target participates in the work the workers to death plan so they do not have yo pay the worker any money even though the worker complains they are in pain. Thry don't care about anyone just getting those stupid red cards. Which they just mark up crap to make it seem like u are saving!

    Advice to Management

    Don' t be lazy help out the regular workers who slave for they're money.
