    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Target is really making some great improvements right now. The work is hard, but it's innovative and exciting. It's nice to be part of a successful transformation.

    Cons

    With all of the transformation, there is a little uncertainty and an increased workload. The grey and the unknown can be a little scary, but things are clearly moving in the right direction.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be as transparent and positive as possible. It is a great way to keep teams motivated and excited about the current direction of the company!

    Pros

    Lots of great people and personalities. Pay rate is competitive with the rest of the retail environment with regular pay raises.

    Cons

    Consistent cost cutting. Payroll is consistently reduced leading to inefficiencies in workload allocation. Company is behind the times in online integration and omni-channel presence.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make great hires and promote those that have a proven track record of leading without sacrificing integrity. Make work life balance a priority.

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

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, discounts and plenty of room to grow. Decent work pace, easier than you would imagine. Not to mention plenty of assistance from the sales floor teaam. (1st and 2nd shift exusively)

    Cons

    In order to get benefits, you must be full time. To be considered for full time, a college degree certainly puts you ahead. Holiday season and back to school season can be very rough. (1st amd 2nd shift exclusively)

    Advice to Management

    Discrepancies between team members can be handled better. Sometimes team members are just unnecessarily difficult.

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

    Pros

    Pay Scale and Benefits are great for those that prove they can do more with the Company. Good opportunity to work in multiple work centers and on Challenging assignments.

    Cons

    Working on Major holidays take away from work life balance. The hours you work are intense. Even with every other weekend off, it is a challenging job while raising a family.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the lateral corporate level positions. Recent structure changes have stunted the outlet for personal development from ground up.

    Pros

    Rotating weekend's off, very competitive pay, company culture, empowerment, work conditions, ability to move from team member to lead very likely with strong skills and work ethic,

    Cons

    Workload/payroll, equipment provided, in store leadership ETL's STL's often very young with low work ethic, Advancement often requires very active promotion by supervisor, often they are only focused on their advancement. Accountability

    Advice to Management

    DTL's should be in the stores more often understand that in many stores leadership is missing in the ETL position. Problem solving falls to the lead.
