I have been working at Target as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Wide range of experience that will look good on your resume and make you more marketable. Fast-paced and exciting company to work for. Great people and great team structure. Beautiful offices downtown.

Cons

Not much room for growth. Very impersonalized HR process for filling positions and impossible to start out with company unless you go through the recruiter from the University of Minnesota you have to be prepared to accept at least 10K less than market and start in the entry level corporate positions.

Advice to Management

Good management style. No micromanagement. Very talented people.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Development for recent grads and all leaders alike can be incredible. Great to work with the team. Awesome way to start a career.

    Cons

    Slipping Company Morals, District Management makes you feel unvalued. The company expects you to complete what they forecast as 200 hours worth of work in 100 hours. When you don't complete it, the STL's look down on you. If you don't fit the "Target Image" the company doesn't continue promoting. Recent structure changes also minimize the ability to promote. The company has lost the "fun" aspect it once had. The company is not making money in Canada and they are taking it out on the US store teams. No bonuses expected for a couple years because of overspending in Canada. They really don't care about anything but the money. It used to be about the team and taking care of them, and us. It's now just how much can get they get for cheap.

    Advice to Management

    Show some appreciation every once in a while. All ETL's make sacrifices on so many levels.

    I have been working at Target part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There aren't too many pros. The 10% discount is okay but now that they have cartwheel it really isn't a thing. The employees are lovely, well most of them. Cross training in different areas is cool because you learn more about the store.

    Cons

    -REDCARDS, everything is about red cards no matter what department you work in you have to constantly pitch that card and if you don't you get harassed and "talked" to. Mind you, you get nothing for selling these cards. No commission, no bonus, absolutely nothing. Oh wait, you get your name called out on the walkie for the whole team to hear and maybe a high five. -Benefits, in the initial interview process if you ask about benefits they tell you after 90 days you will be eligible. This however is basically a lie. You are not eligible for benefits after 90 days, not health benefits anyway. You have to wait until the enrollment period which is around April or May. -Hours/Availability, keep in mind that from January to June you will get awful hours. And if you're availability isn't completely open they give you even worse hours. -Favorites, basically if you aren't well liked you don't get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Hold the same standards for everyone. Cashiers conversion percents shouldn't be compared with LOD/ETL or Guest service or Electronics conversions. They do the most transactions and therefore will always have lower conversions despite asking every single guest that comes through their line. There are literally signs everywhere about the red card stop placing the burden completely on your cashiers and take that up with your marketing team. You make enough money stop making the shopping experience so weird with all the redcard nonsense.
