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

    Pros

    Pay rate, benefits, hours, every other weekend off. Holiday pay. Very fast paced, and very up to date on styles.

    Cons

    If you are not good at multitasking, this job is not for you. You have to do most of the work load by your self.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key. Make sure you are all on the same page when delegating tasks to team members.

    Pros

    Good company! Great quality of products!

    Cons

    Terrible Choices for a Management Team.

    Advice to Management

    If you don't have the proper people skills, you don't need to be managing at Target or any job overseeing a group of individuals, with different personalities. The only plus about the management team, is when they manage to either get fired or manage to find something else, somewhere else. Hint, that's why they are forever getting rid of most of the managers working within the company. Most of them come in with a negative set agenda before even assessing store issues. They are very rude and show great favoritism. Most of the management team are already miserable when they come in and seem to have settled because they couldn't get on anywhere else due to whatever reason(s).

    Provide kiosks throughout store so that Guests can open their accounts prior to checkout without feeling pressured by cashiers to do so then.

    Pros

    discount. flexible scheduling. flexible department transfers.

    Cons

    feast or famine hours. Have to leave and return in order to get promotions. raises are laughable. Was the only team member to get an outstanding on my reviews and got a 20 cent raise every time. No bonuses for anyone except store management. Will transfer you from Full time to Part time with out telling you.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about the employees that work hard and don't get jack.

    Pros

    Really good leadership experience.
    Great for someone who doesn’t like sitting behind a desk or a plain 9-5.
    Free food in break room every once and a while.
    10% discount that can be used on top of other discounts.

    Cons

    IF YOU DONT SPEAK UP AND SAY YOU WANT A PROMOTION, IT WONT HAPPEN. NO MATTER HOW GREAT YOU ARE!!! If you want to move up and they don’t do it after a year in the position, please move on because they are dragging their feet to do what is best for the store not you!

    No respect from management
    Always poorly staffed
    A lot of hard work that is not worth the pay
    Very stressful
    The supposed set schedule gets messed up all the time. So if they tell you that you will get every other weekend off... this isn’t always true
    Poor communication and staffing leads to workers doing double work
    Higher management doesn’t take up for their mistakes or apologize.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites and give everyone a fair chance.

    Top management like STLs, should be more involved and kind. My STL, is bipolar and doesn’t give recognition. HR doesn’t listen to concerns.

    Pros

    Company is making strides in the right direction to stay competitive. Salaries are generally higher at store level. Best practices encourage structure and consistency.

    Cons

    On the store side, the team is not taken care of. You're not required, on paper, to be accessible 24/7 but between group chats, email, alarms, and meetings, you are adding onto an already 50-60 hours work week, as you are still expected to get your job done, but also have an immaculate looking store at all times. You will be pushed beyond what you think your limit is, which is good from a personal development standpoint, but you will get burnt out and your performance will decline. Technology in stores is out-dated and new initiatives are rolled out before completion, causing a lot of troubleshooting and extra work. You are expected to wear all hats at all times, no exceptions.

    Advice to Management

    Respectfully push back and be genuine about what it takes to run a store. Don't pull 5-10 teams from their stores to go make another store look great because there are company visitors in town. Masking the issue will never see a resolution. Take care of your teams.
