    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.

    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.
