    I have been working at Target full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Target had one of the highest paying, highest responsibility jobs to offer out of all of the companies I looked at when graduating college. I have done two different roles and learned so much personally and professionally in both. I have received two large pay increases and a small annual increase in my 3 years with the company. I got to lead a team of 60 when I was barely 21 years old which was scary but was the type...

    Cons

    Be ready to get your hands dirty and be on your feet for quite a bit of your day. Target does not have all of the glitz and glam of other business world employers so that is just something to prepare for. Being a retailer, ETLs work on an every other weekend rotation, Thanksgiving night, and Christmas Eve.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Target for more than 20 years

    Pros

    The company pays pretty well. But beware! If your pay grade is too high they’ll force you out so they can hire recent college grads at 1/3 the payroll cost.

    Cons

    Age discrimination only 5-10 leaders are over 40. It’s Extremely polical. Group management practices nepotism. The level of arrogance displayed by leadership is laughable! Retail is moving merch from a truck to the floor then through a point of sale. They treat it like it’s rockey science! The group leader is way past his 18 months!

    Advice to Management

    Treat people well and they will improve your brand.

    I worked at Target full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    The company as a whole has great intentions.

    Cons

    When you get into the actual stores, they don’t function all that well. I’ve seen plenty of stores where 1-2 bad managers can completely destroy morale and any functioning processes in place. In my particular store there was just an overall lack of respect. I worked for Target for over 5 years and went from absolutely loving where I work, to hating everything about it.

    Advice to Management

    Lead, don’t manage.

    Pros

    being able to stack discounts is nice. at times theres snacks in the break room. the focus on a good work-life balance is really nice

    Cons

    its a store, your not going to make much, even after 5 years. if you get dealt a bad hand, and get a crappy team lead, your time is going to be a bit worst than others

    Pros

    Weekends off, the ability to stay within a visual role instead of being pulled in other directions.
