    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.

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

    Pros

    Lots of room for growth. Set your sights on where you want to go and you can get there. The thing here is to learn and grow, taking the bull by the horns for yourself, but allow room for peer community so that you can benefit from your peers.

    Cons

    None. The company definitely has some setbacks, but is making changes and improvements on ongoing basis. Overall a great experience.

    Advice to Management

    Go in, determined that you will execute on your job expectations. And have a clear understanding of what those are.

    Pros

    Great team culture centered around working hard to take care of our guests and drive sales. Recognition based environment where hard work is rewarded.

    Cons

    Retail hours are not for everyone, nor is dealing with guests each and every day. Holiday hours are not the best.

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving the company to keep the teams engaged and motivated. Experience matters and we want to keep our veteran team.

    Pros

    Good benefits, teamwork, good pay

    Cons

    Pushing red card sales sucks

    Advice to Management

    Selling red cards is extremely hard. Have contests for your cashiers to help motivate them. Talking to them 1v1 about their performance can put too much pressure on them. If employees aren't selling enough red cards than move them to a different area they're more comfortable in.
