    I worked at Target full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Not much of a upside to working for Target anymore.

    Cons

    -Long hours, 10hrs min but expect to work 12 to 14hrs. Must work weekends and holidays.
    - Little support or development
    - No real pay increases anymore
    - Group management is very demanding and ungrateful.

    Advice to Management

    You forgot about the employees! Target was a great company to work for but during the implemantation of your 5 year monetization plan you started treating employees like trash making target no better place to work then Walmart.

    I worked for Target for over 11 years, it was a great company to work for. Over the last 2 years it has been a terrible company to work for. They have lost their company values with the new CEO. Over 50% of senior store leaders have quit in the last year leading to terrible running stores. The leaders that are being hired are not of the same level and can't run the stores like they need to be. This is leading to

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

    Pros

    A very progressive company making strides to remain relevant in an "adjusting" industry as modernization/competition evolves.

    Cons

    Currently undergoing business model changes that really demands a lot from a leadership/upper management (brick and mortars). Team members are taking more responsibility requiring a higher workload that leads to negative work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    As the company changes to be more services to its guests it's important to make sure that the needs of its employees are met as to avoid high turnover

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

    Pros

    Most of the co workers very helpful and open to talk and to suggest me what to do

    Cons

    I didn’t know they wanted a machine who can’t talk wit the clients or help them, just put things in the shelf and be scared of your boss who is payed to make you fall.

    Advice to Management

    A joyful environment makes things better, focus on performance and not on clients and a good environment makes things toxic and less productive.
