    I worked at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The team environment can be great, if you are fortunate enough to work for a leader who is truly development minded. Decent benefits for full time employees and opportunity to advance in the right situation.

    Cons

    Resources and communication can be somewhat limited. Often middle managers are held accountable for the short comings of those higher up the food chain. As it is with all businesses.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in leadership and development training that develops emotional intelligence and self-awareness with district level follow up. This will standardize culture company-wide and solve some of the inconsistency issues seen from store-to-store and district to district.

    Pros

    •Benefits
    •Training is great
    •Support from your fellow ETL team is amazing. Everyone wants you to succeed.

    Cons

    •Work/life balance can be extreme
    •The constant "do more with less" mentality is tiring.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the stores more hours. Often enough you have a team that can do the work if given the correct amount of hours. But when hours are constantly being reduced, it creates a poor work encironment.

    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 worked at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    good pay, fixed schedule except weekends, when you work with a great team you will feel supported. good health insurance. when you have great boss, there is a lot of developmental opportunity for leadership skills.

    Cons

    hours are terrible for work-life balance. upper management made you feel guilty for taking off weekends or fridays. no holidays with family. cannot take time off during large holidays. had a manager tell me that if i wanted to go to a wedding on new years eve i would have to asked my entire peer group at the store and tell them they would have to work because i would not be here. large lack of respect in some stores.

    Advice to Management

    culture differs store to store, group to group.
