    Good, but rigid environment

    I worked at Target full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with my co-workers and supervisors. The work environment was very friendly, and the trainers were very experienced and supportive.

    Cons

    Worked in collections and had to work a schedule that required at least one weekend day. Also had to work either very early in the morning or later into the evening. Fairly strict call flows.

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

    Pros

    It was great working here due to the benefits, good starting salary, and opportunities to move up in the company. The management would do their best to create incentives and would acknowledge you when you were performing well. In my personal experience I was on a team that I loved and had a manager that I respected.

    Cons

    Like any other call center job, it's difficult to sit in a chair all day and take call after call, especially when it's something like debt collecting. I think this job is great if you have the personality to excel with something like collections, but I quickly found out that it wasn't for me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had no issues with management during my time there.

    It is fun initially, until they over work you.

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

    Pros

    -Flexible hours, you are able to swap shifts and add shifts with no problem.
    -Fun & friendly people, usually have fun while you work with your coworkers
    -Sometimes recognized for your hard work
    -Flexible in skills, you can work different areas, so you are not stuck in a routine

    Cons

    -The pay is not worth it in the long run
    -If low staffed you will be overworked
    -Will throw additional responsibilities without the extra pay
    -May not get enough hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to consider and trust their team more since they are the ones doing all the dirty work. They can be friendly when they want to, overall not too bad of people.

    I worked at Target full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Well-respected company, looks great on resume, great opportunity to build experience and strengthen skill set.

    Cons

    Support functions are critical to the actual operation, which leads to an unrealistic workload. Target preaches a great concern for culture, but it's unhealthy at best. ETL retention is awful, schedule sucks, pay is poor, and developmental opportunities are wrapped in red tape. Grateful to be gone...

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

    Pros

    Pay is good, you stay up on the latest trends, benefits for full time employees, you can build friendships, you can have tattoos and piercings.

    Cons

    Back stabbing, cut throat culture, working holidays, crazy schedule which doesn't match the actual pay you get, assignments are not substantively challenging, but they put you through hoops that make what should be simple so difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Calm down...it's selling toilet paper and not changing the world.
    Let Employees talk to each other.

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

    Pros

    Starting pay Is above minium wage. Target discount includes Grocery (unlike some other retail employers).

    Cons

    Upper management has unrealistic expectations of team members. Pay increases SUCK! (yearly review was .13 cents). hard workers get told to work harder, lazy workers get to walk around with management

    Executive Store Intern

    Current Employee - Executive Store Intern in Phoenix, AZ
    Current Employee - Executive Store Intern in Phoenix, AZ

    I have been working at Target as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Compensation for pay Juniors get $16.50/hr Seniors get $17.50/hr, 401k (if you have fulfilled hours prior to internship), discounts

    If you are offered a position for the company after the internship there is a lot of potential growth
    Feedback culture will ultimately help you improve in whatever you want
    If you are kind to your team they will be kind to you
    Real world experience in leadership/management
    You really own your business
    The management will interact with you well, and it may come off as a mask, but many people in the company are genuine

    Cons

    The hours will kill you, I worked 40 hours a week as an intern. Sr. Team Leaders (hourly "assistant's assistant manager") will work 40 hours a week and depending on the store, will do the same work load as an ETL. ETL's (full time after intern position) will work easily 50 hours a week, holidays, and weekends.

    As an intern, I worked every other weekend, and every 6th week would be a 2-3AM shift on Sunday.

    You should expect these kinds of hours from a retail business.
