      I worked at Target for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Target leadership is definitely committed to your development and will consistently work with you to showcase your strengths and overcome your weaknesses. As an ETL, you will find yourself becoming a globally knowledgeable associate who can make business decisions about any aspect of the store.

      Cons

      Target's emphasis on making store leadership global in their knowledge base is extremely challenging and, in the case of my previous position, store goals and department goals can often counteract each other and make your job highly stressful.

      Advice to Management

      Stores are given very broad instructions for rolling out new programs from corporate and little to no consideration is given to each store's individual client base and needs. This should be given a much higher priority.

      Pros

      Money and 401K match. However, no bonus again this year.

      Cons

      Everything else. Work 75 hours a week. On call every second. Day off is never off. Forth quarter is coming and expect to work even more. I will leave for work at 1pm on Thanksgiving to get ready for the night.

      I worked at Target full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      I personally liked the structure environment.

      Cons

      Spent 7 years trying to be an ETL, moving up the ranks but only to a certain extent. Kept telling me I needed improvement on my communication skills (interview) but that's all. They loved the results but didn't want to pay me for it and promotions are the only way you get a decent 1 or so raise. A lot of favoritism, I trained new hires over constantly. Left the company after getting denied for a promotion for a job I...

      Advice to Management

      Promote your real talents or pay them better. Definitely loved the company, but they didn't love me enough to treat me better. Or maybe it's just the locations I was based at because others seem to have had better experiences.
