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

    Pros

    Medical/Dental/Vision Benefits

    Competitive Salary offer

    Grocery discount

    Break room snacks

    Cell phone discount

    First access to new product and services

    Cons

    -It’s not as diverse as you would think.
    -Target employees have some of the oddest personalities I’ve ever experienced.
    -NO work/life balance
    -Minimum 10 hour work days
    -AWFUL & UNCOMFORTABLE training
    -There is a lot of tenure (which could be a good thing) but for most employees, Target has been their only job, so there is no true experience nor fresh perspective. (Probably why they act so odd)
    -If you have prior management experience, this role will feel so remedial and pointless.

    Advice to Management

    There is so many things to fix. I don’t have enough space.

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

    Pros

    Target pay’s very well, especially if you do a good job. You can earn a 10% bonus every position move.

    Cons

    There is a lot of physical work for very long hours. As an executive it’s sometimes expected that you
    Don’t take a lunch or breaks.

    Advice to Management

    Nope

    Pros

    Compensation is great and the company offers a real career path to grow with.

    Cons

    Work life balance is hard to come by and the hours get difficult

    Advice to Management

    Retention is an opportunity at all levels. Something needs to give. Improve compensation or get better at hiring more serious applicants. External hires tend to be less engaged than internal promotions.

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

    Pros

    Company is very forward thinking and teaches about leadership regardless of one’s background. Company is very competitive with pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Company is forward thinking, sometimes to a fault and making moves too quickly (Target Canada). Expect 60+ hour weeks, while doing a majority of your work below your pay grade.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers are almost all fun. Management doesn't ever lose thier temper. Don't know how or if its company policy

    Cons

    Not consistent hours for most employees. Even the best employees who do get 40 hours consistently must work all different times of day and night. Work on holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Management should always remember that employees are people too. You may not like the lazy ones but it is still nice to talk to them about nonwork related stuff once in a while

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

    Pros

    The work while challenging is not difficult. It also forces you to be resilient, adapt, and grow as a leader.

    Cons

    Never enough payroll to get work done by hourly team members therefore salaried leadership ends up doing all the work.

    Advice to Management

    Invest into payroll while also investing in brand launches to remain at the forefront of the brick and mortar retail world.
