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

    Pros

    Target accepts you for who you are. There is not certain "mold" that you have to fit to be appreciated!

    Cons

    Opportunities to advance are not as available as they are with other companies. Promotions and moves become a waiting game.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop and say thank you to your teams every once and a while. We work very hard store side and we don't get enough credit

    I worked at Target

    Pros

    You get good experience, a good job to start if your in school, and they will work around your school hours. They use updated technology and great commication is used between the team.

    Cons

    Be prepared to go beyond and above for a customer. Also be open to work in different departments at short notice. Target is a very busy store on the weekends and holidays. Executives will monitor your area and keep a check on you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to provide extra support on busy nights when the store is under staffed. Always be respectful and show your store team that you apriecate their efforts and smile more often.

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

    Pros

    Your experience is based on the Target you work at and your supervisor. I was lucky to have very supportive and friendly supervisors! The Pharmacist I worked for put profound trust in me and always "had my back". I had subbed at other Targets and the technicians were very aggressive towards their pharmacist and vice versa, so it all depends.

    Cons

    Target pharmacies are not as progressive as other pharmacies, which requires both the pharmacist and pharmacy technicians to do a lot of tedious work!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pharmacy coverage is very important for a pharmacy to run smoothly and to perform to the best of its ability. I think it is vital to help our pharmacists! PLEASE MORE COVERAGE!

    Pros

    Everyone is very nice overall. The company is good about breaks and lunches

    Cons

    They have vibe talks at the end of each shift nd you have to discuss with a manager about your day if you got Red Cards

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand red cards are important but maybe try actually caring about us a little more

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

    Pros

    Cross training available. Hours are there if your availability is open. Recognition is give verbally and "Great team cards."

    Cons

    Low pay. Low raises. And you will not advance within the company unless you have a college degree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire the people who have been there for a few years and know what they are doing (such as the team trainers), instead of these kids fresh out of college who has no idea what they're doing and just micro-manage. Target is notorious for being the "revolving door of managers" because they can't seem to hire anyone from outside who knows what they are doing.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, including: reasonable insurance pricing, 401k matching, and tuition reimbursement. Also truly values a strong work/life balance, and most managers are respectful of personal appointments provided you are still delivering work results.

    Cons

    Lower morale lately given all the cost saving measures including the recent layoffs. Not much has been done to "re-recruit" employees. Still has bureaucratic issues to resolve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Incentivize employees to stay and improve morale! Especially considering the layoffs, company is at risk of losing additional good talent in the near future. Competitors are already poaching top employees.
