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

    Pros

    This entire review will come from the location that I currently work at: - Great team environment - Friendly co-workers - The leadership is usually very understanding of one's circumstance - Fast work environment never any dull moments - Target tends to promote from within, have a great attitude and you can work your way up! - If you want to, you have the ability to maintain a social life - Make acquaintance, relationships in Target gives you somewhat of a social life

    Cons

    - There are times where there is no flexibility in scheduling - Sometimes getting scheduled when you've requested off, LOA, or on vacation - This is recent but not calling a team member to check on why they are not in the store yet, but it is understandable because it is your responsibility. This isn't high school. - PAY - Hours are a bit wonky and benefits are non-existent for the most part if you're not in a leadership role - Depending on hours you may not have a social life - Some policies are frustrating to deal with - Some guests (customers) can be pains in the rear

    I have been working at Target part-time

    Pros

    Higher pay for part time workers than most retail stores, and willing to give you hours.

    Cons

    Store is very hot, and often under-staffed. There sometimes seems to be a lack of communication too.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure there is enough staff on the floor, and all announcements are communicated.

    I have been working at Target full-time

    Pros

    Work-life balance is manageable and the majority of leaders and comfortable giving latitude provided you perform well. Strong promote-from-within culture but that is starting to change. Company is very flexible in helping people develop and open to people carving career paths across the organization. Great downtown facilities for the most part.

    Cons

    HQ is going through a lot of change - much of it needed, but there is not a ton of clarity on reasoning for recent re-structures. Moving between teams is becoming more challenging as leaders start to prioritize more functional expertise versus diverse career experience and perspective.

    Advice to Management

    The HQ culture will need to be re-built following all the restructuring in 2015, and the luster of working at Target will need to be restored by HR and the leadership team.

    Pros

    Target has a relaxed atmosphere in their online department the same people keep returning every season to work there because they love it. The management tries to make it fun by providing food freebies around the Holidays and giving free lunch incentives whenever they ask you to work overtime.

    Cons

    If you live near their online address and can do a walk in to HR to fill out an application then it is much easier to get a job there. However filling out the application online even though it is easy may rule you out.

    Advice to Management

    The online application process rules out a lot of good workers. Maybe someone needs to look at the process.

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

    Pros

    Target has a flexible work schedule, and allows you to drive your development. The 10% discount is also a huge plus.

    Cons

    In the midst of transformation, lots of uncertainty. Lacks clear growth strategy, there is a good vision but it is still unsure what strategy can and will be used to get there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on the culture and providing a workable strategy for success. Put those in place and this company will be a top performing retailer.
