Pros

You have 45 minutes for lunch. They have everything you might want in one location and the prices were very good.

Cons

The management would not list to the employee's when they needed help but would blame you first if you did something wrong. They don't give the proper training and when they do, the instructor wouldn't be fully trained either.

    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.

  2. Nightmare of an experience... Your experience will highly vary depending upon which store you're in.

    Pros

    Every other weekend off (full time employees only)
    Coworkers were really great

    Cons

    Lack of training, lack of tools and resources to properly do the job
    Sales floor is disorganized and completely trashed on the weekends
    Disconnected upper management

    I would be very careful before starting a career at Target. Do your research and check out the store you'll be working in beforehand. Working in an urban store is rough. "Guests" trash the sales floor, re-shop is completely out of control, theft is rampant. I worked in a store where nearly everyone wanted out... there seemed to be an environment of "them vs us" -- upper management vs hourly employees. Do not expect thorough training (except maybe for ETL level and above).

    Advice to Management

    The majority of your employees WANT to do a good job. They want training to do a good job and eventually move up within the company. Target corporation offers excellent training tools, but stores do not utilize them enough.
