    I worked at Target full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Team is like a family environment, you can build many relationship. Salary was good with opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    Schedule you have to be flexible but there is a rotation. Politics, you have to be the favorite for promotions and I watched many people get overlooked due to others being the pick. Inconsistent engagement from upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Performance should be the leading decision in promotions to the next level STL/ DTL. Development is not where it use to be and we are failing New Executives without experience.

    I worked at Target full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great place to gain initial leadership skills and to work flexible and very random hours.

    Cons

    Not a place to grow unless your path is wanting to be a team leader or store team leader. Being an HR Team Member my desire was to grow my HR skills and that was not an option that was supported after basic skills for the position were learned.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your bottom line better.

    Pros

    The work while challenging is not difficult. It also forces you to be resilient, adapt, and grow as a leader.

    Cons

    Never enough payroll to get work done by hourly team members therefore salaried leadership ends up doing all the work.

    Advice to Management

    Invest into payroll while also investing in brand launches to remain at the forefront of the brick and mortar retail world.

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

    Pros

    Lots of upward mobility
    Competitive compensation
    Perfect for single or no kids!

    Cons

    Long work days
    Minimal time off
    Schedule is on the more difficult side of retail

    Very difficult to balance schedule as a mother of small children, having to solo parent regularly, led to me to find a position with a more consistent schedule at a different company.

    Advice to Management

    Some paperwork was redundant... Have heard things have trimmed up a lot.

    The store team is usually pretty good.

    Cons

    Training is non-existent at ALL levels.
    Trying to do everything with less resources every year.

    Stop bullying your ETLs. Train and mentor them.
