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

    Pros

    Good environment and management for the most part, you do receive recognition for hard work sometimes.

    Cons

    Pay isn't great by any means for the workload you are required to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think more realistically when it comes to setting goals.

    I worked at Target full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility in schedule; ability to make the job what you want it be; on-site amenities; professional development opportunities available outside of core role.

    Cons

    The IT systems leave a lot to be desired. It can turn a simple task into a full-blown project. Too many cooks in the kitchen slows down project efficiency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve your IT systems. Make sure people are advancing not only based on their ability to "schmooze" well. Performance must count as well.

  6. I have been working at Target

    Pros

    You get lots of benefits and plans. la when you go outside it can be refreshing however but you can keep going to work.

    Cons

    This place is a corporate store with lots of downsides. It doesnt taste like strawberries and makes my head hurt all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They can include fun and games while making us all feel very welcome and cozy. I want to say that i appreciate them so much thanks guys.

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

    Pros

    I love basically all the people I work with, I like that I can be trained to work in different departments, I like that I get paid more than minimum wage on entry and of course the discounts.

    Cons

    Small amount of hours in January and February, having to deal with rude "guests" occasionally. Also, they really nag you if you don't get at least one Red Card a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pushing the Target red card so seriously, a lot of people do not want them and that needs to be accepted

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

    Pros

    Great company culture, pretty good salary, good work-life balance, very supportive environment

    Cons

    Promotions are on a timeline, which means you'll probably for sure get promoted after 18 months. Unfortunately, this means promotions are not merit based so no matter how hard you work, promotions won't come around until your time is due. Also can be very bureaucratic when it comes to making fairly simple decisions, and there are way too many meetings. However it seems this will change with the plans the new CEO has in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for more flexibility in the workplace. Get rid of all the extra meetings.
