I have had a great experience through learning, development and promotion.

Salesfloor Team Leader (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

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

ProsTarget has alot of discount programs as well as reimbursement for education. There are many rewards programs and the overall culture of the company is great. There are so many positions within the store as well as the company so the opportunities are endless.

ConsOne challenge may be the prerequisite of needed a 4-year degree for some of the leadership programs when many retailers do not require this.

Advice to Senior ManagementLead by example. Despite popular belief perception IS NOT reality. Never assume, always ask. Remember to always respect your team members and never be to arrogant to roll up your sleeves and join in to help every now and again. Your team will appreciate it.

A fast paced work environment

Cashier (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

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

ProsFocus is on team building as a whole, not on individualism while encouraging good retirment plans and the chain of leadership is well established.

ConsHard to navigate telecommuting while changing the way the company does business within the north eastern shore

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to junior staff!

ETL

ETL - Hardlines (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

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

ProsTeam environment! Salary! Potential for advancement! Excellent resources when it comes managing your business! Great company to work for.

ConsIt's retail! It's mind over matter....if you don't mind it doesn't matter. Long hours, angry guests, you better have thick skin and be ready to work hard!

It's hard work but the guests are worth it!

Softlines Team Leader (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

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

ProsThe guests make your days great and you have the chance to build so many relationships that you wouldn't have otherwise. Every store is different.

ConsThe starting rate for team members is low compared to some competitors. The discount is not ideal, but you can use it on top of other sales and discounts. Every store is different.

Great company to work for!

Backroom Team Member (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I worked at Target part-time for less than a year

ProsManagement always would have food in the break room for us and they were always asking us for feedback on how they could improve

ConsSome people in the upper level weren't on the same page and there was always confusion about a few things that needed to be done

Advice to Senior ManagementMy only advice would be for everyone to be on the same page

I liked working for this company, with the exception of how management handled some situations.

Soft Lines Sales Associate/Cashier/Guest Services/Concession (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I worked at Target part-time for more than a year

Pros-Fast-paced, great co-workers, clean environment, good company policy; I would recommend this job as a first job or to someone that's in college.

ConsPressure to push company card on guest; Being timed/graded on every transaction when cashiering; unrealistic/contradictory outlook from management; being seriously harassed by a manager (to the point where I had legal right to sue) and higher management doing nothing about it.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees more; Don't contradict what you tell employees to do; Be more helpful and if an employee is being harassed then you should do what's best for them and not for you.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Great Company

Executive Team Leader (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

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

ProsOpportunity for advancement, pretty good pay, ability to relocate is easy, great team culture at most locations, fun environment

ConsMuch more labor intensive than what you're initially led to believe; company often shifts focus so frequently that it becomes difficult to understand their vision

All they care about is Redcards

Cashier (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

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

ProsThe entry level pay is better than most Cashiers (although Cashiers are the lowest paid in the store).

I love the atmosphere

ConsLately it seems like I've been more of a Salesman than a Cashier. All they care about is selling Redcards. They constantly harass you about Redcards. You don't get commission or ANYTHING for getting them.

Advice to Senior ManagementRealize that it's not that easy to sell Redcards.

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