I have been working at Target full-time (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

    Pros

    *Amazing culture, staff and team members. They hire some of the friendliest people and it really helps make the workload more manageable.
    *Job training is thorough with a lot of individual time
    *Job security- Target really does take care of their team members (the majority of the time).

    Cons

    *If you start as a team member you'll never get promoted. It doesn't matter how much you self-develop or education you pursue, you'll stay where they hired you.
    *They will not hire you back for any position if you resigned from them in the past.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please understand that you have valuable team members capable of making an impact in the company. People tend to continue to give maximum effort and believe in companies who promote from within.
