    I worked at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Going in at twenty I didn’t expect to work at Target for an extended period of time. What followed were the four best years of my professional career. You not only get to work with a wonderful team, but you get the chance to prove yourself. A lot of promotions are done in-house.

    Cons

    There is only one true con that I can think of, and that is none other than the terrible red and khaki color combination.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t forget to take care of your team.

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

    Pros

    The people are great, I have never had an issue with management or HR. They have always appreciated the extra work I do.

    Cons

    Always understaffed, sometimes stressful (because of understaffing/lack of payroll), hard to get promoted/move up, lack of training. Some departments get the short end of the stick for being lane backups.

    Advice to Management

    Athough I am lucky to be quick learner, the majority of new people who worked alongside me are gone due to the fact that they were not given more training hours. They were confused and that caused them to have anger towards their job/ management. Please open your mind to your sales floor associates, some of us have great ideas to help Target become more productive and less wasteful. Whenever I bring up an idea or a solution to a problem, there is never the time to listen to it. Even a suggestion box would be a good thing!!

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

    Pros

    Great people, love the team I work with

    Cons

    The district likes to change things that don’t need to be changed, things that create more of a mess than is necessary

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the team members, they’re on the floor and they know what works best with guests. We have a lot of good ideas.

    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    Flexible hours
    Multiple duties keep it interesting

    Cons

    High turnover of cashiers
    Lack of resources needed for everyone to do their best
    Unrealistic credit goals

    Advice to Management

    Visibility needs to be more than coaching opportunities and walking leisurely by on lunch. Everybody has a hard job, but attitude and perception put forth by ESTLs can lower store morale.
