I worked at Target full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Potential growth if that is what you want.

Cons

Amount of workload that is expected to get done. It's not possible. Each year they add more and more change or policy on your plate. You work well over 50 hours a week. No work life balance

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I was promoted internally.. Please train new executives properly. Business college is a joke. The worst part, and part of the reason I resigned was that I had to answer to or work with store managers or exectives that did not know one thing about retail or Target in general. My team felt the same way as well. Target has a lot of loyal employees, it is so demoralizing when there new boss is someone who read best pratice and now thinks they can be a leader. Target is changing and going in a direction that I was not able to follow. I do give a lot of credit and thank Target for molding my career in retail.

    Pros

    Alot of great and smart people, very flexible schedule, good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Alot of work to be done, emphasis on sales so much as this could be the reason you have job or not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers need to give more credit to their project managers, they do alot of work and most of the time go un-noticed.

    I worked at Target full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Tv/Movies in the breakroom sometimes with free food, raises every year, cross training which allows you to pick up more hours in other areas of the store, friendly co-workers, they almost always approve time off requests, most LOD's can be really caring and offer help/advice when you really need it.

    Cons

    Clique-ish LOD's (bosses) and co-workers, LOD's have favorite employees and they make it obvious, rarely ever let you go past team lead without a degree.
