    I worked at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    HR coworkers were great, 10% discount, room for growth if you are willing to work long hours as an HRBP or HRM.

    Cons

    Distribution center HR team members are extremely overworked, which leads to burnout and turnover. I could have easily worked 60 hours each week and still not completed all of my tasks. Most of the good HR team members and HRBPs have left or are looking to leave (this is a nationwide problem, not specific to any one DC). No matter how many times this flags on the annual survey, nothing changes.

    Advice to Management

    Staff HR appropriately to retain top talent. Truly listen to the feedback you receive each year on the Best Team Survey, especially if a theme is seen nationwide year after year.
