    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???

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

    Pros

    I liked my coworkers, good mid level team leaders, clean store

    Cons

    Seeing Team Leaders work more than 16 hours a day. Some Team Leaders are there from the time the store opens until late into the night without higher leadership caring. They just want them to get multiple jobs done to make them look better. What kind of company does that? These people have a life and families outside of Target. I feel bad for them. Very poor work life balance.

    Your work schedule can change at anytime without anyone telling you and then you get written up or yelled at

    Advice to Management

    Actually care about your employees. Who let's their employees work from the time the store opens until it closes? Do you have no respect for your leaders? I may have been a lower level employee but I will never want to excel at my job if this is my future. It's disgusting! Your Team Leaders actually made this job enjoyable too.

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

    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.
