    I have been working at Target full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    None this company only operates with negative reinforcement

    Cons

    Too many to list, horrible pay long hours and never given recognition for what you deserve

    Advice to Management

    Be out front with team members and treat them with respect. I dedicated 4 years of hard work to the company and never once did i feel any of the benefits.

    I worked at Target full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great People Focused environment. Great management training program for new college grads. Great of leadership skills to build off of in the future

    Cons

    Due to Targets lack of innovation, they have not been able to keep up with the market. They are getting bypassed by the likes of Walmart and Amazon. therefore career growth is pretty much non existent.

    Advice to Management

    Invent and simplify.... its one of yo core competencies that as a company your not making the mark

    I worked at Target full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Salary, Discount, Benefits, great work environment, potential for advancement

    Cons

    Some leaders are more interested in promoting themselves than the hourly employees who are the individuals truly responsible for success.

    Advice to Management

    The company is built upon the backs of the store team, never forget that they can make or break you.

    I have been working at Target part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working with some good people to achieve a common goal. Target team member discount.

    Cons

    Relying on other team members availability to work, and taking requested time off will place your return weekly schedule upside down. Long drive to work.

    Advice to Management

    Pay could be better, and not partially based on merchandise sales.

    I worked at Target full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fast, Fun and Friendly work atmosphere Very Team focused Supportive learning environment Fast paced environment Working for a company that serves the communities they operate in

    Cons

    50-60 hour work weeks Demanding retail schedule Upper level management passing the buck No bonus unless the store scores green in most every department ( therefore the bonus is doubtful) Can be paid the same amount of money as someone who works in the distribution center first and transfers. Work at the DC!

    Advice to Management

    Work to be an example of what hard work and dedication looks like.

  10. "Challenging career with great compensation package."

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Charleston, SC
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Target

    Pros

    Target's compensation and benefits are great. Most of the leadership is very respectful and friendly. It is a great career path for anyone fresh out of college if you can get straight into a salaried ETL position.

    Cons

    It does take time to get acclimated to the culture and high expectations, and it can quickly consume all of your time if you are in a new or difficult role. It is nearly impossible for anyone with out a four year degree to advance in the company, which has a negative affect on morale at the hourly level.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the reporting and information to stores. For ETLs, excessive time is spent looking for the right information and working on administrative functions which may not all be value-added. Developmental tools and recognition programs at Target are wonderful, but they are tedious and time-consuming.
