    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Store level employees are great to work with and good advancement opportunities. Fast paced environment keeps work interesting and challenging.

    Cons

    Group, region and corporate are out of touch with daily retail environment. Expectations continue to rise with annual store management positions being condensed, putting more strain on team and morale. As a salary team member, work/life balance suffers.

    Advice to Management

    Unannounced, unconstructive visits with the purpose of boasting upper management egos come across as bullying tactics.

    Pros

    Good people always willing to teach you if you don’t know about something. They also like to promote from with in the company so that’s good once you get hired on if you want to move up in a company.

    Cons

    Open on Thanksgiving, Health benefits not so good but that’s most retailers now days other then that it’s a good place to work.

    Retail- Bad Hours are part of the deal and the altering between days nights, weekdays weekends is tough on your sleep pattern and overall health.

    Pros

    Pay & Benefits. Vacation. Time off, whether it be sick time or not.

    Cons

    Holidays and weekends are a must at every position. 10 hour shifts happen only if you are not willing to go above and beyond. Normally did a 12 hour shift minimum to ensure a good work center. Always understaffed and not enough hours in the day to get the job done.

    Advice to Management

    Support for struggling Executives goes a long way.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fair salary, decent benefits, good opportunity for development, feedback driven company. Can be a great environment to work in, if you are in a store with good leadership.

    Cons

    Opportunity to advance is often dependent on whether you are “liked” by the district team. Micro manage stores to an extreme degree. Say “do what’s right for your building” but don’t support that motto.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your store leadership to run the business & if they aren’t the right leaders, then manage them. The current direction feels like all stores are being punished for the mistakes of others.

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

    Pros

    -Pay
    -Room for advancement if you work hard enough (have no life outside of work)

    Cons

    -No work/life balance. Cultish feel, if you want to eat lunch or work your normal schedule you are looked down upon
    -Micro-manager who sits in office but likes to check on you every 5 mins via walkie
    -No support of family life
    -No sick time. If you're sick you're expected to come to work and get everyone else sick
    -Sometimes feel unsafe due to lack of AP presence and as LOD you're confronting those who are attempting to steal

    Advice to Management

    ETLS are not work-dogs, we are human and we need to eat our lunches and yes we occasionally fall ill. Respect us and we will take care of your store, if you don't you'll notice how fast your store goes from green to red overnight
