Pros

Flexible place, not as bad as other retail industries, pretty loyal to longtime employees.

Cons

Long hours, the retail industry in general can be hard, but that's no fault of Targets.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Target part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a job, and a paycheck.

    Cons

    1. Complete cookie-cutter environment, don't you dare be yourself!
    2. Dorky morning "huddles" with exercise kind of like in kindergarten.
    3. Nobody is allowed to leave the building alone when working a closing shift, gotta wait for Big Brother.
    4. Dumb scheduled breaks that you have to take when they say to. "Sorry ma'am, I can't finish making your latte now, I have to go on my break lest I get written up."
    5. HR and management talk to you like a small, stupid child.
    6. No matter how clear you make your availability, they will give you a jacked up work schedule.
    7. They do not direct hire anyone full-time, and don't disclose that in the interview either.

    Advice to Management

    Shape up your HR practices and remember that you are dealing with functionable adults.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fun team, supportive leadership (when you're lucky). Great way to help me get through grad school. Good benefits and discount, as well.

    Cons

    I was promoted once, but was told that I would be unable to be promoted again. I'm okay with that, but managers should be more open to growth and potential.

    Advice to Management

    All Target managers are gorgeous (at least in my district)...be more open to everyone!
