    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Target full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    People, salary, 10% discount

    Cons

    Long Hours, working holidays, lack of forward thinking management-no vision, no advancement opportunities due to terrible business decisions like opening and closing 200 Canada Targets and selling the Clinic and Pharmacy to CVS

    Advice to Management

    Value your top producing team members by recognizing their accomplishments, occasionally saying thank you. Too much favoritism and the "good old boy" network.

    I worked at Target

    Pros

    Opportunity for more hours are always there and you get 5% discount

    Cons

    No work life balance. You will work what they give when they give it. Guests walk all over employees here and management takes no control of situation

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees and do a better job at communicating amongst yourselves and other team members. It's not all about red cards but the guest experience too!

    I worked at Target

    Pros

    Working at night is fun and lay back. You don't deal with customers and get $5 worth of food every Friday.

    Cons

    Not much working recognition. Managers don't really appreciate your effort and the raise is too little.

    Advice to Management

    Give more recognition to workers.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Target part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They don't breath down your neck. They allow you to do you job to what best suits you. And I appreciate that of them. As long as you are a hard worker, you can do your job with out anyone bothering you.

    Cons

    This Target has no cons that I can imagine or think of. The only thing is, and that depends on the employee and the city in which you live, the bus to get to work for me is very unreliable. But as far as Target, they treat you like family in my experience.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
