I have been working at Target full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great team members who actually care about the quality of the work they do. Ability to change jobs fairly frequently.

Cons

Payroll versus tasks at the store level gets more ridiculous every month. Health benefits changed this past year to an account based plan that raised my out of pocket cost for a Dr visit from $35 to $95 per visit. I feel like the $179 biweekly medical insurance premium would be better staying in my pocket instead...

Advice to Management

Target truly believes in it's motto of "Expect more, pay Less". Customers think it applies to them, but it is how corporate treats the team. The current corporate drive is to expect more from every team member. At the store level it is not unusual for a sales floor team member to have to help stockers with the push(due to no payroll hours), backup cashier frequently(sue to no payroll hours), help the instock team with the hourly batches(due to no payroll at the store level), while trying to set and fill planograms the planogram team was unable to finish(due to no payroll), all while running like pavlov's dogs to every call box within 60 seconds. Hard to do when you are one of 3 total team members covering the entire sales floor and are on a register. Payroll has been squeezed enough at the store levels, time to squeeze at the corporate level now guys....

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Smart co-workers, good benefits and salary, nice offices

    Cons

    No leadership in IT. Dis-jointed leadership in the business with widely conflicting incentives from leader to leader. No strategy to retain or even value knowledge. IT workers are seen as interchangeable which causes endless delays and on-boarding increasing costs.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge the role of technology in driving retail of the future. Acquire a passionate CIO with a technology vision and equal influence to merchandising and advertising.

    I worked at Target full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, opportunity to work in different areas (pyramids), salary was competitive

    Cons

    Too many management layers and too little decision making, managers (especially those from other pyramids) don't do a good job of recognizing and rewarding talent. Very political and too much time wasted on "collaboration" to try to find a job. Managers/KMG sometimes don't have the financial/business expertise and act like they know what they're talking about. Benefits and vacation is a joke. No bonuses paid to those not in management roles.

    Advice to Management

    Shed some of the fat. Way too many layers and people doing menial jobs.
