Great Company With structured training program

Former Employee - Operations Manager
Former Employee - Operations Manager

I worked at Target full-time (less than an year)

Pros

company culture, information that is learned and achieved over a short period of time. As well as good compensation and benefits with room for salary negotiation. Company facilities are very tidy and well-kept. Weekly meetings allow you to feel engaged with the business process that is going on. The experience that you receive here is something a lot of people do not encounter at a young age, making this great opportunity to go through.

Cons

Senior Management lack of transparency between employees. Never are seen on the floor, and then provide you with feedback based on hearsay. perception is reality.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Less ego, more visibility.

    I worked at Target as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    I liked it cause they were always trying to develop you professionally and encouraging you to try new ways to stream line processes.

    Cons

    contract positions stay strictly contract. They won't bring you on permanently even if there is a need. It's cheaper for Target to keep on contracting positions out because they don't have to pay for benefits, health, ect.
    Very clickish environment, felt like I was back in high school trying to impress the popular kids. It takes a long time before people open up to you and become of one them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall a good company, but don't miss out on a great employee and not hire them on a permanent basis to save money.

    I have been working at Target full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Talented team where collaboration is critical to success. Fun place to work with many opportunities to stretch yourself. Ability to work from home.

    Cons

    Company has gone from a growing company to a company that is standing still greatly limiting developmental opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hourly employees at headquarters should have better career paths.
