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

Pros

Good pay and bonus programs.
Great benefits
Excellent 401k

Cons

Holiday hours are intense, temporary hires are needed during this time of year. Don't get me wrong, this is not a complaint, it needs to be done each year.

Advice to Management

Don't forget we need life balance. We also have families and loved ones we need to spend time with. The pay is good but we need time to enjoy the fruits of our labor. I love this company.

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

    Pros

    -Able to talk to coworkers during work
    -A good flow of work, not too busy not too slow
    - You can get a lot of hours

    Cons

    -Pushing the RedCard is a real pain in the butt
    -ETLs and TL's are really snobby and they act like theyre a part of some elite club
    -Hours are too long for one day, Ive worked up to 10 in one day
    -Not enough pay for what they ask you to do
    -Virtually no possibility of becoming real full time and qualifying for benefits. Theyll give you up to 39 which is really annoying
    -If you dont reach your redcard conversion they will write you up every week, badger you about it several times a day, and get on your LAST nerve
    -The redcard is really a great idea, but due to the lack of marketing and advertising about it, it is very difficult to sell

    Advice to Management

    There is a fine line between pushing the REDCard and annoying the customers to the point that they are reluctant to return. Most of the customers at my store are regulars and they really get tired of hearing about the redcard everytime they come in especially when they just dont want it and have already expressed that. Also, badgering your employees about something you wont even adequately market and advertise to your customers is not very good for morale and probably contributes to the high turnover rate.

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

    Pros

    Great team with several diversity business councils
    Feedback-driven culture; collaborative culture
    Room for growth across the company
    Great perks if working at HQ

    Cons

    Healthcare benefits change frequently and increse in expense (typical across all sectors)
    Workforce tends to be younger at HQ; gives perception of age bias
    Culture difference between HQ and field team members

    Advice to Management

    Continue to find ways to engage non-salaried team members and bring more of the corporate culture to the field.
