    I worked at Target part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They work around your schedules, work load is light around Christmas time.

    Cons

    Workers always get caught up in gossip, you'll go from 34 hours to 18 in a week wondering how you're going to pay your bills, LODs are a pack and badmouth employees right in front of their face, there's no room for improvement, you can't tell the LODs anything negative about any employees that have been been there for more than a year or else they get protective about them (even though they're doing their work wrong), you have to remind them that you requested days off or else they'll ignore it.

    Advice to Management

    Work on everything. Literally everything that your stores are doing right now need to be fixed.

    Pros

    Inclusive company culture, tons of product selection

    Cons

    Terrible staffing, full-time hourly leaders not even getting 30 hours/week

    Advice to Management

    Stop ignoring Team Leaders' requests/complaints - we're on the floor much more than managers are and could use the support

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

    Pros

    Lots of structure. Internal promotions. Learn a lot about effective management and corporate business. Very flexible for being such a large company.

    Cons

    Its a huge company going through some major changes which is a challenge. In the end I think that Target will be great but it's going to be a long road to get there.

    Advice to Management

    would be nice too be able to pay people more, team members who have worked there for years but still making nearly what new tms are making.
