    I worked at Target (More than 10 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 (More than 5 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

    Great environment, Great management, love this job.

    Cons

    I've been with Target for a year, total I have 15 hours of pto. I need health insurance I'm an older person. I can't really control my average hours. I show up and don't call in sick.

    Advice to Management

    Give team members enough hours to qualify for medical benefits. Tax time there's a penalty per month for not having insurance .

    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
