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

    Pros

    This place is nice. Charge less then Walmart and pay there employees my better, while offering better customer service. I hoped one day to be a manager but hury my back so I went on dissability for the remainder of my life.

    Cons

    These places offer such fgood deals that the ma and pa stores cant compete. When they buy in bulk they beat the suppliers up and can never give a fair deal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close the stores

    Flexible schedule, ok benefits. fun environment.

    Cons

    Blatant favortism by management, extremely hot in the summer, when you're asked for ideas on improving the work environment, you're told why something can't be done.

    I worked there as a part-time employee in college. It was a decent job that helped me get some money through college.

    I have been working at Target part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Managers were great. They were very flexible with my college classes and athletics. They made me feel like a member of the family.

    Cons

    I didn't get paid enough for the work I did. New team members would be hired at the same pay rate or higher than me after I had been there for 2 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the processes that are in place now. The company needs to reward the employees that have stuck with them over the years. They adjust with the new economy to bring people in but forget about the team members they already have.

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, nice starting pay. Nice upkeep. Didn't have to pick up other people's slack or do their jobs for them since everyone worked together.

    Cons

    Didn't get paid overtime for working 12 hours on black friday. One of my bosses wasn't very nice but she got fired/quit shortly after I left anyway.

    Pros

    Great culture, excellent pay, lots of opportunity to excel and learn new opportunities, great employee benefits. Its fast, fun and friendly!!!

    Cons

    The work life balance is not great. Many times work had to come before spending time with family. They say they encourage a health work like balance however, if you took time off you had to work your but off before and after the departure in order to stay on track.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enforce a better work life balance for all employees

    I have been working at Target

    Pros

    The company tends to attract amazing talent.
    More socially responsible than their competitors.
    Best compensation package I've found in retail.
    Opportunity to promote quickly due to high turn-over rates.

    Cons

    Work-Life-Balance is no longer a realistic or attainable goal. Hourly employees are treated as disposable. Turnover rates have steadily risen in the past year approaching 50%. In response to these figures, HQ lowered their expectations for retention. The acceptable turnover percentage was increased to within 5% of 45% to qualify for a "green" management score. Good performance is always rewarded with more work and no compensation. Team Leaders have steadily been taking on the responsibilities of executives yet are still expected to accomplish goals on an hourly basis. These positions should be salaried.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to your Minnesota roots. Don't forget the midwestern values and principles your company was founded on. Offer more living-wage positions. Reward employees not with snacks in the break room, but with a share in your growing profits.

    I worked at Target

    Pros

    If you are overnight stock you earn 2 dollars more an hour. it's an over all easy job and it's good for students.

    Cons

    i really did not like the management there. they would stand around and talk an rarely help or do anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    actually lead by example rather than doing nothing on the side. hiding in the office and talking while the PA system is on does not count.

    I have been working at Target

    Pros

    Schedules are flexible, time off is fairly easy to get if needed. Target seems best suited to be a part time, extra income type job.

    Cons

    Pay and management feedback could be a lot better. Not many of the longer term employees project a very happy impression.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Interact more with all of the employees. Even the least experienced cashier should be noticed and recognized.
