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

    Pros

    The best reasons to work at Target it's a great company the benefits is awesome 401ks and pension is awesome! It's just only thing I complain about is the pay and the reviews is too little.🖓🖓

    Cons

    I really don't have that much challenges working at Target all I know is can I help you find something!😀😁😃😄😉😊

    Advice to Management

    The reviews are too low. The pay should start at $10 an hour. If you have experience in retail it should be $15 an hour. We are dealing with customers face-to-face it should be more pay.

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

    Pros

    The benefits are good, especially the 401k

    The pay is good, depending on the position. If you’re just a cashier or a cart attendant then it’s great, but if you’re a TPS (security) be ready to get paid almost the same for getting spit on, dealing with ALOT of homeless people and not having your leadership to back you up when you need it.

    Cons

    Career advancement, you won’t move up. If you do, you’ll be waiting for years. I have plenty examples including myself.

    Advice to Management

    Look into promoting from within. It will definitely help with retention and will help with keeping employees happy.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Guaranteed 40 hour
    Flexible Schedule

    Cons

    Poor training og leaders, which leads to weak teams. It i easier to obtain a management position from the outside, than it is to work your way up. There is a very poor use of great resources to promote from within. And wgile the company is growing, then employees and suffering- the hourly pay rate has been increased but the hours drastically cut.

    Advice to Management

    Use the awesome team members that ave exoerience and welcome the challenge to be leaders. They know the company, culture and have helped push the brand.

    I worked at Target (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great pay & benefits, great 401K, great reputation, great looking stores. Lots of good people working for this company. If you have a degree in basket weaving, the sky is the limit.

    Cons

    Lots of talk about "Fast, fun and friendly" is lip service. Not the same company I started working for a long time ago. Sacrifices a lot of great executive talent for college kids with a degree. High rate of failure with hiring fresh out of college students into ETL positions. Work/life balance is a running joke for ETL's.

    Advice to Management

    Support focus service areas with payroll to accomplish task and service. Development of team is important, but remember that we are here to sell stuff.

    Pros

    Good benefits, very difficult to get fired, diverse employees, allow visible tattoos and piercings

    Cons

    unrealistic expectations for team leaders and team members, running on less payroll than needed to complete expectations, turnover is outrageous.

    Advice to Management

    do not expect your employees to complete tasks you are not able to complete yourself.
