    I worked at Target full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Hours are awesome, 401 k is an advantage, experience and training will allow you to advance personally and professionally

    Cons

    you are asked to do things that does not fit your job title, more workload added, insurance is through the roof, leaders are disrespectful and expect you to conquer the world with little hours with the smallest team and if you do not you are a repremended

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Target is an awesome company and an awesome place to shop but if you do not treat your team with respect then your team cannot cater to your to the guests with a smile

    I worked at Target as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    At 20 years old and halfway through my undergrad, I was leading and managing a Target Store for periods of time as an Executive Intern. The company invests a lot in personal development and growth, something I admire. Overall, the culture is terrific, it paid well and I learned a lot.

    Cons

    Hours are miserable. Since you're training to be an assistant store manager, you're expected to come in for whatever hours your mentor has. For instance, 4am until 12pm shifts, 4pm until 12:30pm shifts, etc. are randomly assigned. Harsh politics too on which Target Store you work at (I had to commute 45min each way... ugh).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please listen to the requests of team members in which store to place them!

    I have been working at Target full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Because I work overnight I get a 50 cents raise. From 11pm til 12am I make 9.50/hr and from 12am-8am I make 10/hr.

    Cons

    Its a lot of work as far as stocking and you have to keep the pressure going because it has to be completed before the store opens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice. Great management !

    Pros

    Great learning skills, high promotional opportunities, and great work ethics if you give 100%

    Cons

    Working in the wrong store could cause a really bad impression if you don't know better. Don't quit just work harder and get out of that store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring 20 year olds out of college with degrees that have nothing to do with business and or retail. These kids wont stay for long because its way to hard for them and not the field they want.

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

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility
    Team members great
    Great for people who work with little directiom

    Cons

    STL is too young
    Favoritism from STL to SrTLs and ETL
    Heavy workload without proper support
    Hours cut to make bonuses
    Unprofessional ETLs
    HR knows nothing about HR

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold people accountable for what's not getting done. DTLS need to come work in each store for a week and really see how the store operates on reduced hours. Promote from within instead of hiring over confident college kid who ends up getting fired a month later

    I worked at Target part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You do get 15 minutes breaks every four hours(paid) and an unpaid 30 minute break every 6 hours. They pay you usually a little higher than the minimum wage. There is room for growth if you desire to stick around and learn about different areas.

    Cons

    If you start part time at story you will be lucky if you even get 15 hours a week. Here in Miami I started with that and as soon as you saw less customer traffic your hours were practically non-existent. They are pretty disorganized on this. You do not receive any insurance benefits being part time until you have worked there for at least 6 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop letting computers handle scheduling hours and actually see for yourself how you can give enough hours to every employee, especially during busy times.
