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

    Pros

    Big Company, opportunities abound. You get to learn retail business from one of the leading companies. Hard work will result in higher responsibility.

    Cons

    Retail business. It is tough. Lots of long hours and holidays. Dealing with the general public can be stressful. Target is not worse than any other retailer, the retail business is just tough.

    Advice to Management

    A little less adherence to rigid rules. Listen to Team leads. When you hear it is time to let someone go, you should let them go.

    Pros

    They can be pretty flexible with your hours if need be. Starting pay is good 10.50 per hour when I was there. its a job that keeps you pretty busy when you are there

    Cons

    Hours are not set. it would be nice to work a set schedule. ETLs can sometimes be a little to demand at times. Also don't expect to get offered after the Christmas. if you get a seasonal job it is truly seasonal

    I worked at Target full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company as a whole is very inclusive and diverse. Target gives the opportunity for upward mobility to people that might be overlooked by other companies. The benefits are great and the pay can be great also if you work hard enough for it.

    Cons

    Retail as an industry is changing very fast. The opportunities for advancement are evaporating quickly. Target is not immune to the changing landscape of retail. They are quickly getting rid of middle management just like everyone else.

    Advice to Management

    There are hardworking and talented team leaders that are willing to change with the company as it changes. They are invaluable to the future of Target. Unfortunately they are being used as scapegoats to protect ETL's that are scrambling to save their own jobs. The company wide changes are embraced by the leaders that want to be the change you need. We are being discarded by the leaders that fear the necessary changes.

    I worked at Target part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is always happy, employees and guests included. It’s generally a super positive place to work, and as an employee, you’ll always feel like a part of a team.

    Cons

    They are only required to give you eight hours in between shifts, so they can have you stay still 1 am, and need you back at 8.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Target is a great company to work for. They are inclusive and forward thinking. The health insurance benefits alone make it a worth while company to work for. They treat their team members with respect and dignity.

    Cons

    There are major changes happening throughout the company that could be changing a lot of the pros about working for Target.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is currently going through massive changes in the way that they prioritize all aspects of the company. They need to remeber what sets Target apart from our competitors. Helpful team members, uncluttered aisles, and a focus on the shopping experience.
