    Work with your current team members for executive positions, less turnovers and staff who already know and love target. Don’t over look them!

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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits including health, dental, vision, 401k match, time off, tuition reimbursement, etc. Take full advantage if you can! Really committed to career growth and development. Base salary and bonus is also extremely competitive for the industry.

    Cons

    You give up weekends, holidays, and put in long hours. They say it’s 10 hour days, but that’s a good day! Very little opportunity to make vacation plans or travel during any peak seasons so the huge amount of vacation you build up is worthless.

    pay, pay, pay. They pay very well if you are a seasoned person

    Work life balance is very tricky

    Advice to Management

    Send clearer messages on roll outs and strategies, understand the amount of workload required to complete is not possible and have some compassion.

    I have been working at Target (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A lot of the other team members are really great people and fun to work with.
    It's also really good HR experience.

    Cons

    The management is AWFUL. Little to no communication. Too many ego problems. Unrealistic expectations. Want full time availability for part time work. Doesn't pay nearly enough to be competitive. Not enough recognition for going above and beyond. Just all around toxic for morale at the store.

    Advice to Management

    Just leave. Make the store a better place to work by leaving. EVERYONE talks about how much they hate you behind your backs.

    I have been working at Target full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Aside from this job, good wages compared with other jobs. Very diverse workforce. Good employee discount.

    Cons

    For the amount of work and the expectations they have of me, I’m definitely underpaid. Often expected to do supervision/managerial things at the same pay as a cashier. Advancement opportunities exist, but it takes forever! Medical benefits don’t start until after more than a year.
