    I worked at Target part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Basic retail store experience They hire without any required experience Actually they almost hire anyone

    Cons

    I'm not sure if it was this store specifically, but all the team members seemed to be divided into groups of friends and it made being a newbie very difficult as you are easily shunned

    I worked at Target full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Pay Employees Good well being discount Friendly environment sometimes Discount

    Cons

    Work life balance Favoritism Mangament

    Advice to Management

    Ensure your employees aren't over worked. It is not okay they one team member is left to zone 2 departments in low volume stores while the LOD just walks around demanding orders. Stop promoting unqualified individuals who do not know what the true meaning of a leader is.

    I worked at Target full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    I worked as a HRTM and then a HRTL for nearly 4 years total. It was a great experience starting out. I learned and gained a lot of leadership skills I didn't have before. If you are good at your job, show potential, and have a great ETL to report to, you will be developed into a great leader and move up in the company rather quickly. It's up to you.

    Cons

    Since I was in HR and went to school for HR and obtained a Bachelors in business before getting this job, it bothered me that I had to do things on the sales floor at times. Having to work insane retail hours, although I worked in the "office" (TSC) really bothered me. I used to work shifts as early as 6AM-2:45PM and as late as 3PM-11:45PM. It would be worse if it was holiday season. I remember working a 36 hour shift...

    Advice to Management

    I think the top policy makers in Minnesota should spend time undercover to see where they can make changes that actually have a positive impact on employees. When I first started there I loved it; I even turned down a job offer from MSG doing HR for the Knicks (if I regretted things, this would be one of them). But eventually the lack of work-life balance (especially for an HR professional) wore me down. The culture and...

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

    Pros

    There is potential to grow within the company. They are flexible and willing to work with your availability. Most of the management team is approachable.

    Cons

    At the location I am at they overwork their overnight employees. New employees are not properly trained. They don't know how to utilize their employees strength.

    Advice to Management

    I think management needs to get more involved in the work process. Their is not a staff and sometimes it will help they gave a hand. I would recommend that management hold people accountable for their actions and not punish everyone.

    Pros

    The people you work with tend to joke around and like to have fun. Although the environment sucks the people are nice.

    Cons

    Everything sucks. They don't pay enough for anything and the bosses ask for too much. No overtime or anything so don't look for it

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so demanding and care for the team members for once. You all love to degrade us and then force us to do work.
