I worked at Target part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Very Friendly and a fun environment. I really enjoyed working for this company. I meat a lot of great people and had a lot of fun at work.

Cons

Long hours that were unpredictable. Even though i enjoyed working it was sometimes hard to balance work with family life especially over the holidays.

Advice to Management

More employee recognition

    I have been working at Target full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Customer focus. Store manager and leaders od duty provide assistance in busy times

    Cons

    Will hire outside the company for a promotion if you do not have 18 months experience even if you had the lead position with a previous employer and you were given an exceeds job performance rating.

    Advice to Management

    Be clear as to why you are not promoting someone with experience rather than hiring from the outside. The 18-month rule is undertood but sometimes doesn't make good business sense

    This is a cautionary tale. Target is not the great and wonderful company they claim to be.

    I worked at Target full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Group leaders are given health insurance coverage from day one and the premiums are competitive. The 10% employee discount is nice to have.

    Cons

    Passive aggressive work environment. Senior management is deceitful and underhanded. Target goes to great lengths to talk about their great and wonderful culture where ideas and opinions are valued. This is so far from the truth. Management is expected to micromanage all direct reports and make them feel inferior. Target does not allow employees to problem solve or make suggestions towards process improvement. All work has to be done a certain way. Don't waste your time with this company!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and treat them with respect.
