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

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule (depending on position)
    Pretty good entry level benefits

    Cons

    Management is not proactive about developing employees. I originally took this on as a part time holiday job to make some extra cash on top of my full time job. After realizing how much I loved the company and team I worked with, I decided I was interested in pursuing an upper level position here. After expressing this desire, I was not taken seriously, in spite of my extensive retail and management experience. Had to constantly follow up with management, yet still was treated as if I was an entry level employee fresh out of high school with no experience. Had multiple positions I was qualified for at other stores, but they wanted me to wait a year or two before they would "recommend" me for the position.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the talent you have and actively develop and promote. Stop being so afraid of losing talent inside your entry level positions. If you don't recognize and promote them, they'll leave anyways.

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

    Pros

    It's a good company to start working for. You get a 10% team member discount. I got longer breaks and lunches that were required by the state. I worked at 2 separated stores, one in Arizona and one in California. The transfer was done internally and was easy.

    Cons

    The discount only works with cash or the Red Card, which is pushed very heavily, which I did not like doing. Working at two different stores gives you perspective, but the team leads and upper management at the CA store were very young and at times did not seem to know what they were doing. When something went awry, they made it seem like it was the cashier or sales team members; which in most of the cases I observed it was not.

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

    Pros

    Most people work together to get things done and everyone is genuinely nice including customers. Everyone’s always in a good mood to shop at target I love having conversations with my customers and helping them buy the right products.

    Cons

    Nobody is paid enough for the amount of work they have to do. It’s all physical labor for minimum wage. They give you a ton of work to do with not a lot of time to do it at some points as well.

    Advice to Management

    I think they should reevaluate payments. People at amazon do as much as we do and get paid the right amount for the physical labor they do daily which is the same as us. I also think they should work on being more organized schedule wise and people wise. Pay attention to who does their work and who gives others the work for them to do instead.

    I worked at Target (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing I can think of n I wouldn’t recommend applying at this sleazy corporate. I wouldn’t even give this corporate half star

    Cons

    Worst hours, Zero healthcare benefits for the first yr or even none. Supervisors who do Favoritism, too many gossips behind low position employees on who to get rid of. Discrimination towards employees with disability and employees who are Muslim. Was under investigation in 2015 by EEOC due to discrimination you must google n read before applying.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees n treat them equal. Stop belittling employees with disability n stop thinking that anytime you offer a position to an individual with disability that person has no clues about ADA n there rights.
