    Pros

    They have great benefits and care about the staff.

    Cons

    Pressure it put on you if you don't sell at least one Target Red Card every shift you work. The hours you receive are also never guaranteed.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the management of their specific areas don't get over zealous and feel like they can manage areas of the store they're not over.

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

    Pros

    I started working at Target in high school and continued for 10 years. I held numerous different positions throughout the years and finally left recently once I realized that I was really over working in retail. I have no (or okay very few) complaints as Target as an employer. I have met some of my closest friends and all kinds of people from different walks of life through working at Target and I will always be glad to have had that experience. I had many opportunities to cross train in different areas and I feel that I was overall compensated well for the type of work that I did and that the benefits were pretty good.

    Cons

    I wish that Target would promote from within more for their salaried manager (ETL) positions. I have known many people over the years (both with and without college degrees) who would be much more qualified for these positions than the fresh-out-of-college-22-year-old types that they like to hire. It is possible to promote from within to these roles but it is more difficult than it should be in my opinion.

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

    Pros

    Friendly management and coworkers, reasonable work-load, easy to learn and remember, then train new team members!

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is that Target doesn't allow their team members to accept tips, but the pay is good enough that it isnt a big deal.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, a lot of opportunity for advancement, great overall company to work for values wise.

    Cons

    Frequent restructuring, non-exempt pay was not competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Review and adjust pay scale guidelines to compete with market

    Be nice to your underlings. Encourage them to do good work (not always discouraging). Listen when a Team Member has a complaint. Treat everyone with dignity and respect.
