Pros

Great team atmosphere, company genuinely cares about Team Members and development of management talent. Compensation and benefits are good, and it's great getting a discount for shopping!

Cons

A big company can be a challenge for people to work in. Be prepared to be overwhelmed at first! Shift work can be a challenge to take on if it is not something you are used to.

    I have been working at Target part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Management watched for dedicated people and made sure that they have development opportunities. My management actually helped me to get an internship in line with what I'm studying in school. If you're not interested in working hard and moving up, working here will be a drag. Not everyone fits with the fast, fun, and friendly atmosphere, so if you consider yourself to be a glass half empty kind of person, steer clear. They are conscious of not violating labor laws so don't worry about missing any of your breaks or being treated poorly.

    Cons

    Merit based pay raises were mediocre. Training has gotten better recently, but is very inconsistent so it takes longer than it should to be able to accomplish tasking efficiently.

    I have been working at Target full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A kit if hands on experience, learning proper communication, management, planning, and situation based skills. Pays really well and you stay pretty busy. Not a dull day really. The team and work environment is very welcoming.

    Cons

    Company does not like it when you work overtime. Sometimes the job can be really stressful. You will occasionally will need to demonstrate courage and not be afraid to confront a team member or guest that is behaving inappropriately. Sometimes the job is too serious. You will occasionally see ETLs who are very lazy while others who are active.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All managers should have a unified working routine. Not as many ETLs work as hard as the next. Employee firing should be much easier because it becomes distasteful when you see those types of employee who just do not have the heart for the job.
