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

Pros

Great people who want to do great work. A collaborative environment. The Fast Fun and Friendly culture at HQ is genuine. The work itself can be very fun and rewarding.

Cons

Sometimes promotion criteria is a mystery and an exceedingly political process. Due to strategic missteps, our transformation to being a truly multichannel retailer is not moving fast enough. Layers of bureaucracy makes getting things done difficult, especially new initiatives lacking a standard playbook. It is hard for individuals to move across "pyramids" which drives many people to leave the company.

Advice to Management

Work harder to get the unfiltered truth from team members. Stop focusing on just the headlines, since this causes the painful truth to be filtered out in order to "tell a better story". Worry less about process and more about making the right business decision. Empower your people to deliver great results. Ultimately, create an environment where the best decision for the business and the best decision for one's career are the same thing.

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

    Pros

    It teaches you basic work experience, being on time, following guidelines, cash handling, customer experience. You get to see cool, new, cheap products. They were flexible working with school.

    Cons

    No real future, entry level, horrible pay. Extreme lack of training. Management even had a high turnover rate which is generally a bad sign.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more, and keep quality workers, rather than paying minimum wage and cycling through trash workers.

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

    Pros

    If you want hours they can work with you to get more.

    Cons

    Pay is low, and increases were tiny.

    Advice to Management

    With all the money that is made from the Target cards, you should probably offer a bit higher a yearly increase to your workers.
