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

    Pros

    Pay is excellent. The company has strong values and does stick to them. Also, there is a lot of room for growth and promotion.

    Cons

    They will work you like a dog. They say 50-52 hours per week, but often you will work 60-70. Also, if you don't have a strong STL (store manager) then you will receive little to no support from upper management. Further, though there are lots of levels you can promote to, you will have to wait a very long time. Some ETL's wait over twenty years for promotion. They lead you to believe you will have a 1.5 year rotation in each position, but often its much longer.

    Advice to Management

    Support leaders in stores that are failing.

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

    Pros

    15 minute paid breaks
    Starts at $10/hr
    Always free food/drinks in break room

    Cons

    Managers are not organized/slack at job.
    HR department did not let me fill out my tax information after multiple times of asking them. They would deduct money that was not accounted for out of my pay checks, then would act like nothing is happening when I confront them about it.
    All phone calls to the store go back to the fitting room so whoever is working back there doesn’t get much work done.
    There isn’t enough mydevices for every employee on the sales floor.
    Discount is horrible, you can’t even use it when using debit or credit card.
    Managers never showed up to train me.
    No room to move up

    Advice to Management

    Be more organized

    Pros

    My team and the employee discount. Full time position with benefits and paid time off. Flexible schedule with some weekends off.

    Cons

    The holiday hours.Low pay, never enough payroll hours. Store STL played favorites and promotions were given to the favorites not the best candidate.

    Advice to Management

    Value your long-term employees don’t push them out the door because we’re too expensive.

    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    There are no pros for this employer.

    Cons

    All about timing and doesn't care about customers needs. Target puts money first, staff last.

    Advice to Management

    Need to hire a better managers to handle the store better. There are always room for improvements and need to adjust the break schedules (instead of two 15 minutes paid breaks and a 30 minutes meal break, should have an hour meal break and two paid 15 minutes break). Also, need to assist employees to help them move up ranks or honor the requests of employees to move into different department(s) to better fit their needs. In addition, need to make sure that the customers comes first, money last.
