    I worked at Target (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Medical coverage was awesome, & had all the benefits that a good H.R. dept should have. Easy opportunities for advancement or lateral moves to different departments.

    Cons

    As a supervisor, I was very uncomfortable with pressuring the cashier's to reach their credit app goal. If they didn't reach goal, that affected their reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Relax on the credit card apps, I've heard it's been less of a focus these past years, but a discount retailer is not a bank. The cashiers should be cashiers, not credit card salespeople.

    Pros

    Great place to work to gain experience in retail. Very flexible with your class schedule.

    Cons

    Might just be a con for me but working weekends, missing holidays and inconsistent schedule but that comes with the retail territory.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

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

    Pros

    They provide excellent discounts on products you buy from the company. They have a range of options from paying for school to help with adoption services.

    Cons

    They pretend to care about the employees but do not really take any action that would back that up. I have not seen an evaluation yet, I know my duties but I have no idea how I will or in what form I might be evaluated. I have no idea how to get a raise or if they even give them.

    Advice to Management

    Work together with your people instead of them just working for you. Improve your training programs and implement standardized review and scorecard procedures.

    I worked at Target full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Established brand/business
    Great place to learn management on a store and corporate level

    Cons

    Long hours
    Corporate politics
    "Development" roles are merely management strategies to retain talent longer. Once your 2 development roles are complete and you are in good standing with your STL and district business partners (approx. 3 years total), you wait in a long line of other team members who have been waiting for 3+ years before you for either the STL route or Corporate path.

    Advice to Management

    Hire the right leaders/executives to lead store teams and business partners.
