I have been working at Target full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Target fosters an environment for growth and develpment. Strong leadership development program.

Cons

As an HR professional, it was difficult to be perceived as an impartial party due to role as manager on duty. Sometimes I as their manager, sometimes I was HR.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

HR management should not be asked to be both managers to staff and HR.

    I have been working at Target full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    - People, people, people!!! I absolutely love my co-workers and partners. They are why I love coming to work every day.
    - Variety of roles, tasks, partnerships...each day is always unique. You're not bored and you can shape your position based on your interests. Note for newbies...please pay your dues first!
    - Skill and personal development opportunities are phenomenal! The training offered at Target is varied (topics, formats, etc.). You can take as much or as little as you want.

    Cons

    - Political / hierarchical (but trying to change)
    - Leaders not always strong in developing team
    - You're hired based on past experience but then don't refer to it anymore

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a great company! Please keep trying to break down barriers between teams. Would love to see more focused leadership training in developing team.

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

    Pros

    It's really not a hard job. Depending on which store you go to, the management is nice. Those who have been there for 20 plus years dont take themselves too seriously which is nice compared to those ETLs who have just graduated and strive to be "the best". Stay in the ETL's good graces, don't draw too much attention to yourself and you should be good. Your timeoff requests will be granted (as long as its not black period aka holidays and back to college time). With the 10 percent discount, the 5 percent off from the red card and the Cartwheel app, you can save a lot of money. It may not be much, but it does make a difference in the end. But really all you do is zone ( maintain the brand of the floor, pick up, organize), back up to the front lanes, do pulls (depending on if you have an instocks team to do these), guest service and put away the abandon. All day everyday.

    Cons

    At times, you feel like you are being underpaid after a long day at Target. Picking up after slobs every 2 minutes gets tiresome. There is a lot politics that goes on. Teams lead are exempt from doing any of the tedious stuff. They will make team members do everything. Busy days at Target makes an 8 hour shift extremely long and aggravating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    better pay
