    Pros

    Friendly staff and Team Leaders, Fast paced environment, Flexible hours.

    Cons

    During slow times of the year (Non-holiday times) hours can be cut. Short amount of time, especially during night shifts, to get everything done with an overwhelming amount to finish.

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

    Pros

    Pay, TM's, TL's, LOD's, AP/APTL's, Sr. TL's, and STL's, Fun Work Environment, Fast Paced, Team Driven, Benefits, and Special/Holiday Pay.

    Cons

    Promised Hours, Lack of Communication with HR's/ETL-HR's and Some LOD's, Some Move Up Quicker Than Others, Unrealistic Expectations/Regulations For TM's to Follow, Lack of TM's in Some Departments.

    Advice to Management

    More hours are needed for TM's. If I have a question or concern I would like it to be a matter that is fulfilled right away, especially problems with scheduling or personal matter with other TM's. They are slow, and sometimes they need to reminded more than once. I've worked at two different Target store locations and it seems to be a trending issue. Not a big deal, but defiantly a problem when given to a ETL-HR or LOD short notice. One thing that really bothers me is that I've been with this company for almost a year now. Some TM's are new and received raises and I haven't. Keep in mind I am no harder working than they are, but I've also cross-trained to five different work centers in the store from Hardlines (Sales Floor), Consumables/Grocery (Sales Floor), Electronics/Toys (Sales Floor), did some Fitting Room and Softlines (Sales Floor), Flex. Full./Ship-From-Store (Backroom), Guest Service (Front End), Guest Service-Cashier (Front End), and Guest Service-Cart Attendant (Front End) and have received no added wage increase other than the minimum wage increase at Target ($11.00/hourly).

    I worked at Target as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Target has a great atmosphere and an incredible work space for their employees. They have so many amen ties. The company is so young and vibrant and affords their employees with so many opportunities. Even felt this as an intern. The managers are fun and care about your development and everyone is so nice and helpful.

    Cons

    They are a huge corporation. If you like wearing many hats and having a variety in your day then working in the cub farm might rub you the wrong way. But a great place to work if you're only a little weary of that.

    Advice to Management

    Let interns bond as a group a lot because it helps them want to stay with the company afterwards.

    I worked at Target as an intern

    Pros

    My 10 week long experience at Target must have been one of the best internship program experiences in the Twin Cities. I was placed on a new team building an application from the ground up, so I experienced different levels of the iterative application development cycle. Both my manager and mentor were awesome!

    Cons

    Experience was team based. Some interns were placed in fields of computer science that they didn't desire to work in (e.g. back-end, infrastructure, security). My advice would be to hire for those specific team types.

    Program was also quite short. Separating the number of interns into two waves of 12+ weeks could work with scheduling and be more desirable.

    Pros

    The TLP program i s really tailored to help entry level engineers learn. The engineers are very welcoming and willing to help. Minneapolis is also a really great place to work.

    Cons

    I haven't found any downsides about working at Target yet other than the cold weather of Minneapolis!

    Advice to Management

    I do not have any advice to the management.
