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

    Pros

    Pay isn't bad but also not great.

    Cons

    Management expects you to get tons of work done but keeps you understaffed. Incredibly stressful and not good for your body. I ended up at urgent care because of the strain the job put on my body. Management does not expect you to take breaks.

    Advice to Management

    Hiring enough team members would really help.

    Pros

    Decent pay, decent benefits, mostly strong leadership.

    Cons

    Inconsistent policies that are ever-changing. Lots of responsibility regardless of pay grade.

    Advice to Management

    Work with the team to make new policy changes work in a way that is fair and efficient. It's important that as we add new responsibilities and policies that we also make it all understood and fair to all team members.

    Pros

    Partnering with community, volunteering on behalf of the company.

    Cons

    Long hours, work life balance inconsistent, upper management being out of touch with store operations, having ideas stolen by upper management and used as their own, HR does not care about anyone and is willing to commit fraud to keep people from claiming unemployment, company does not stay out of politics or personal issues such as transgender or bathroom policies.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on business not politics or social issues. Share salary pay and bonuses from the top down.

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

    Pros

    Indoors, usually has AC. Usually get 40 hours even. Except for after Christmas, hours are slim to none.

    Cons

    Huge workload, only 1 person per department to do everything. Management does not communicate with each other, in fact my store has 9 different leaders and they all give different directions and then get irritated when you haven't completed all the extra tasks thrown at you. They also don't promote within so if you're looking to move up, goodluck. Leaders don't work weekends either, so good luck getting a weekend off.

    Advice to Management

    "Dedicated stockers" should be dedicated to stocking. Schedule cashiers as needed so salesfloor doesn't have to run and fill in, do all the reshop, complete audits, push all the freight, zone, help with online pick up orders, and complete the manual fillgroup pulls all before 11 AM.

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

    Pros

    Discount stacks with anything.
    Good benefits.
    People tend to be great.

    Cons

    Workload is disgracefully intense.
    Expectation tends to veer towards unrealistic.
    What the company is aspiring for is wonderful, but execution needs to be better.

    Advice to Management

    Be staffed, and offer incentives to recruit “experts” and listen to the people hired to be “experts.”
