    Advice to Management

    Always walk the floor, it let's the team kn ow to u care and are aware of what they are doing.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    health benefits
    employee discount
    works with student scheduling, depending on what your availability is

    Cons

    stores have the options of what is needed for shifts
    they no longer work with an individual person's schedule

    Advice to Management

    this whole "modernization" has been a nightmare. there's not enough hours and time given to train EVERYONE in the store to do every EVERYTHING.
    do they really expect flow team members that have done nothing but stock for 10+ years to start doing planograms and price change???

    Pros

    Team culture, employees are fun to work with and train. My store manager was very helpful and supportive. My piers were also team players,

    Cons

    There was no work, life, balance. Team members relied so heavily on management that it was impossible to have a life outside of Target.

    Advice to Management

    Treat others as you want to be treated. It's best to lead by example and ensure team members are learning their entire learning plans.

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

    Pros

    Have a chance to meet some great leaders. Have a chance you really develop younger talent and most appreciate it. Chance to go to other store around district to help assist building pano.

    Cons

    4 STLs in 2.5 years. Wants you to reprove yourself every time a new STL comes in. STL focus on themselves instead of helping develop talent. ETLs more into what you do out the store than what you do in the store. Definitely get lost in the shuffle there. If STL isn’t behind you you have absolutely no chance. If you take a new position in the company you have to wait 18 months for you to be considered for any other promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your talent. Not on what you do good or what you did good. Worry about your store and what some of your great team members are doing instead of what you think is the right way. Actually show and develop instead of pointing and directing. I have no idea why target uses the term leaders because most are managers instead and have no idea how to actually lead a team.

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

    Pros

    From my first impression Target seemed like a great place to work. I mean, who does like to shop at target? I would recommend. Pros for me were the Team that I worked with, being the primary reason I stayed for three years.

    Cons

    Where do I start? In Target the Executive Team Leader- Human Resources position is looked at as one of the less strenuous of the others. This however was not true. Upon arriving to Target I was given a completely different depiction of what this job truly was. With the company trying to stay relevant there are constant changes with little to no recognition. This definitely impacted morale from my perspective. As a leader you are told you work a minimum of 50 hours/ week. However be prepared to work way more than that. Upper level District management has absolutely no regard for lower management “executive team leader”. Be prepared to be extremely over worked. If you are looking for any type of work life balance this is truly not the place for you. You have been warned. If you speak up and try to provide honest feedback you will be black balled.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your Management Teams more as they are the heart of your business. Really look into ways to have a positive company culture. Happy people drive better results.
