I worked at Target part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great place for a first job, nice discount if you have your team member discount which is 10% and you have the Target Debit it's 5% so you'll get 15% off. It obviously depends on what store you work at but all my managers ( GSTL's, LOD's and my STL) were amazing and had our back when a guest would give us attitude. But like I said it all depends on what store you work at.

Cons

Red card Red cards Red card. This is the only thing about this place I can't stand is constantly pushing the Target credit with every team member especially the cashiers. They actually have a log of how many each team member has persuaded a guest to open. If you don't have a certain number they will coach you on the proper spiel to persuade a guest to get the card. You can't force someone to open a credit card. Another con with Target is the secrecy between management and basic team members. I would over hear a lot of meetings we were not suppoed to know about and things going on in the company and not telling us. I understand they can't tell us everything but some stuff we should know.

Advice to Management

Understand it's not team members fault if they don't make a guest open a red card. Stop keeping team members in the dark. Listen to team members we might actually have a good idea.

    I worked at Target full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great focus on personal development. Good pay rate for the midwest.

    Cons

    Very focused on how things are done - a little bit like Stepford-wives.

    Advice to Management

    Truly embrace diversity. If everyone has the same approach as the CEO...you become myopic.


  2. "Overall a strong company. Guest driven business."
