I have been working at Target full-time

Pros

With the lack of any highly paid manufacturing work in the area at the Target D.C. fills that role. Good benefits with 5% 401k matching. Quarterly raises when you start and so far since it's opening 11 years ago annual raises have been given for cost of living increase.

Cons

Unless you have ten plus years of experience plan on working one of three shifts:
A-1: S/U/M 6am-6p
A-2:S/U/M 6p-6a
B-2: T/W/R/F 4p-2a
Training is not merit or performance based but rather based on favoritism it seems
Extremely high management (lower level group leader) turnover
Corrective action write-ups are also based on favoritism it seems where as some can get away with 14+ call ins before punishment others only need 8.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ask for updates on who top performers in various attributes are and who is getting advanced training in various functions.
Communication between departments should be more open and even having rotating management contributing to start up announcements. This could be an inbound manager(group leader) telling the warehouse workers what they are doing well at as well as areas that they could better support inbound team members.

    Current Employee - Sft in Austin, TX

    I have been working at Target full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. M-F 6A-230P schedule. The SFT position has the freedom to set standards and priorities in the work schedule. The FM team is a great resource for knowledge and encouragement.

    Cons

    Pay and benefits are lacking. Target has made the list of lowest paid employees for several years. The job performance standard keeps rising, and the pay remains the same. Working under recent college graduates is usually a disaster.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More training for team members on Target's procedures and policies. Time and money is lost due to the lack of knowledge across all levels of management.
