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

    Pros

    It's a good place to start with or as a long term career. They have a great brand with a staff that up holds the standards of this brand. Goes without saying that it has a reputation for the higher end of the market.

    Cons

    Any and all work or professional environments involve an element of politics. People can and will have different opinions on what to expect from others.

    Advice to Management

    Whatever you are doing keep it up and give more positive verbal communications when at all possible.

    I have been working at Target part-time

    Pros

    I absolutely love working at my target. Great staff and everyone works well as team. Professional and polite.

    Cons

    Downside is we cant more than 15 hrs a week to meet our bill obligation. Even when short staffed, they dont give us the option of getting extra hrs so we can meet our goals for the day and close on time.

    Advice to Management

    Part time workers need more hrs. In stead of so many new hires, give some of us the option of having extra hrs. You have some great dedicated workers that need to work so we can all meet our daily goals together.

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

    Pros

    Company is very forward thinking and teaches about leadership regardless of one’s background. Company is very competitive with pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Company is forward thinking, sometimes to a fault and making moves too quickly (Target Canada). Expect 60+ hour weeks, while doing a majority of your work below your pay grade.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours. Easy to move to other departments or jobs. The discount that you get is very nice. Fast paced environment.

    Cons

    Hardly ever got off on time. If you work the late shift you can’t leave until everyone is done with their jobs.

    Pros

    Good hours fun people and team environment. I made great friends while here and learned a lot about merchandising and selling.

    Cons

    Leadership doesn't listen to team members opinions on change. They ask for opinions but, always end up doing what they want instead.

    Advice to Management

    We work on the floor, we may know what works better for ourselves and other team members, listen to us please!
