    I worked at Target (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Training, Development, Medical/Dental Benefits, Pay Salary, and Work Environment

    Cons

    Extremely Long Daily Schedule Shifts, Very Limited Promotional Opportunities, and Lack of Tools to Perform Tasks

    Advice to Management

    Target was great with trying to remain competitive and up-to-date with current technology. However, please ensure when rolling out new processes, there is enough equipment to complete the new tasks. Also, the weekly schedule are perfect. However, it is often required to work extremely long shifts. This is not good for leaders with families.

    I worked at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits including health, dental, vision, 401k match, time off, tuition reimbursement, etc. Take full advantage if you can! Really committed to career growth and development. Base salary and bonus is also extremely competitive for the industry.

    Cons

    You give up weekends, holidays, and put in long hours. They say it’s 10 hour days, but that’s a good day! Very little opportunity to make vacation plans or travel during any peak seasons so the huge amount of vacation you build up is worthless.

    Pros

    -Feedback oriented company
    -Utilizing technology to revamp supply chain to stay competitive in industry

    Pros

    Team culture, employees are fun to work with and train. My store manager was very helpful and supportive. My piers were also team players,

    Cons

    There was no work, life, balance. Team members relied so heavily on management that it was impossible to have a life outside of Target.

    Advice to Management

    Treat others as you want to be treated. It's best to lead by example and ensure team members are learning their entire learning plans.

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

    Pros

    Company culture is passionate about developing leaders and there are ample opportunities to grow and promote. Target pays well, increases and promotional raises come with a big jump.

    Cons

    There is little to no work-life balance, and the job requires you to be “on” 24/7. ETL schedule is demanding and fluctuates constantly- expect at minimum 10 hour days and often 6-7 days a week. Expect one shift a week to start as early as 6am, another to last until at least 12a, one weekend day, and he other 2 vary.

    Advice to Management

    Staff executive management adequately enough to provide balance for dedicated employees. Getting paid a salary amortized over the 60+ hours one dedicated to the job is insulting, and ultimately burns people out.

    Pros

    Compensation, benefits, working with great peers.

    Cons

    Work life balance is lacking. Be ready to receive/answer text and e-mails when you aren't in the office. You will be working every other weekend.

    Advice to Management

    None. The organization is lead top down. Information doesn't flow up the chain.
