    I love working here.

    PC Technician (Current Employee)
    Carson, CA

    ProsIT Department is great. There is some travel and after hours work but just enough to make it interesting. Not too much. There is a budget for IT education which is very attractive. There is room for growth.

    ConsSome options as far as what we do are limited to choices made in our parent company's head quarters in New Zealand. It's not a large company - if you start at the bottom you'll probably never reach the top of the IT department unless someone leaves a vacancy and you are overqualified for your position already.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone. I'm very satisfied.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It's new and fun yet frustrating and annoying?

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Kansas City, MO

    ProsGood people to work with sometimes.
    Working early
    Finishing work early

    ConsRaises aren't worth it
    Manager is questionable
    not enough worker to get job done
    Boring at some points

    Advice to Senior ManagementPut yourself in you employees before you speak. Trust them a lot more then you do. Stop talking to them as if they have no idea how to do there job and hire more people to get the job done as fast as you wish it to be done instead of becoming angry at your workers for not finishing on time because there weren't enough people.

    Challenging. rewarding at times, but lots of tough days and unhappiness

    Executive Team Lead (Former Employee)

    ProsGood Pay and some upward mobility

    Fun & Easy.

    Sales Floor Team Member (Current Employee)
    Kingston, NY

    ProsThe Work is very easy. All you have to do is make sure you are fast, can lift heavy boxes, and make sure your done before the store opens.

    ConsIt's work. You have a job to do, and sometimes it's not the easiest to do, even though you've did the same work before, over and over and over again.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI really like working for Target, it's the best experience I have, and am having a blast doing it. I wouldn't choose any other store to work for, I enjoy the low prices, the store is always clean & neat, and that's the way it should always be, I wouldn't change a thing.

    The job itself is ok, but ther is currently no opportunity for advancement.

    Flow Team Member Logistics Stocker (Current Employee)
    Marietta, GA

    ProsWell, you get to go home early and have the rest of the day to yourself if you don' t like having a lot of hours.

    ConsThey rush ou too much and don't give you enough hours. Opportunities for advancement seem to be non-existent and picking up heavy boxes is stressful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore training and more hours would be great. Team leads need to recognize the work of team members and not rush them so much. Opportunities to advance need to be expressed.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Excellent compensation with opportunities for advancement.

    Logistic Team Leader (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsTarget has many advances in technology and procedure that makes logistics easier and more efficient than most companies.

    ConsMany of Targets Logistics involve early morning, late night, or overnight shifts.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay the most attention to Target Brand procedures, protocols, and advances in technology because these things are what makes this company one that is florishing greatly with room for maximum individual growth.
