    Pros

    Target have great benefits and the culture is amazing. They also have tuition reimbursement for team leaders who are going to school.

    Cons

    The development of leaders is poor due to new managers who are recruited into the company with no experience. Tenure leaders who have been with the company have a hard time being promoted after reaching this position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote more within the company, especially tenure leaders.

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

    Pros

    Corporately it is a great company gives a lot to charity and has benefits for it's empoloyees

    Cons

    However on the store level the pay is awful the working conditions as well as the way the team members are treated is horrible. It's sad when you are penalized for having to get a second job just to make ends meet. Hours are cut to pad bonuses you can work for 40n hours a week for 6 months then because of "sales" your hours can be cut to 10 a week. I was told that I do a great job and am a very effective employee but that I have "topped out on my pay scale and will no longer be receiving a raise from now on thats pretty pathetic when top off is a few dollars above 10/hr and I've been with the company for over 11 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    lead by example.

    Pros

    Great morning/over night Part-Time Job
    Encourages Teamwork

    Cons

    The Management can tend to lose touch when communicating with lower level workers.
    The Management, in many cases, doesn't seem to be considerate of employees' well being.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leaders need to be attentive to how they work together and communicate more often with their subordinates. This will build moral between your Team Members as well as encourage them to be faithful. Take care of your soldiers so they can take care of you.
