One of the best retailers to work for

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

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

ProsWork life balance is prioritized and encouraged. It is a collaborative environment, focused on training and career development. The culture is positive and focused on innovation and driving results as a team.

ConsVery political environment; a strong culture which can either be a great fit or a challenge if it isn't your personality. Management doesn't take quick action on underperforming employees and many times just transfers the underperformer to another area. Minneapolis has cold weather for 6-7 months out of the year.

Great Company to work for and very competitive

Advertising Department (Former Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

I worked at Target as a contractor for more than a year

ProsI liked it cause they were always trying to develop you professionally and encouraging you to try new ways to stream line processes.

Conscontract positions stay strictly contract. They won't bring you on permanently even if there is a need. It's cheaper for Target to keep on contracting positions out because they don't have to pay for benefits, health, ect.
Very clickish environment, felt like I was back in high school trying to impress the popular kids. It takes a long time before people open up to you and become of one them.

Advice to Senior ManagementOverall a good company, but don't miss out on a great employee and not hire them on a permanent basis to save money.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

The Culture of Busy

Senior Sourcing Specialist (Former Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

I worked at Target full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat benefits, great opportunity to move around/up in the company (if you spend many, many hours networking), hip/fun environment

ConsPassive/Aggressive management, strange interview process, little transparency, muddled reporting structure/process

Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstandable that retail is profit/sales driven, but there's almost zero connection to stores and focus on truly developing good people

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
