I have been working at Target full-time for more than a year

Pros

Amazing brand
Even more amazing people
Work/Life balance is great
Lots of challenging work

Cons

Senior management sometimes just doesn't get it
Decisions are made based on political motivations rather than what's best for the guest
Sometimes Target is it's own works enemy
Culture that is afraid to take risks and fail

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust your team - give them autonomy to make decisions, to take a risk (or two) and fail/learn...

    I worked at Target part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Competetive pay, employee discount, community service opportunities

    Cons

    Overly-specialized lingo, insufficient training, emphasis on metrics and sales

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It helps to be conscious of what goes on on the sales floor. All employees benefit from training opportunities.
