    I worked at Target full-time

    Pros

    Worked with great people (other GLs and team members). Good for experience right out of college and good for a resume builder...that's about it sad to say. Good benefits and 401k. I had higher expectations. I recommend for experience but not long term (1-2 years).

    Cons

    Group Leaders are not valued by upper management, they are easily replaceable. Because of that, most quit after 6 months to a couple years. I worked there just over 2 years and I saw and average of 1 GL quit per month, that's 24 in 2 years! Also, after about a year into working there, the GM was new, all of HR and the senior leadership team was new as well. Some got fired and some quit. Since I left in February 2016, I know of at least 6 other GLs that have quit as well to go to competitors. Warehouse workers are favored over managers because they are afraid of a union forming. HR makes too many friends with managers and warehouse workers, they should be separate and unbiased, however, they let their friends influence their decisions. It is very political and feels like high school. It's really hard to get any support from HR or upper management, they are not very involved in the operation. Overall I had a very disappointing experience and I had higher expectations for such a large, established company. I am now at a competitor and much happier!

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your leaders (GLs). Be on their side and support them. Be more involved in the business. Don't let politics and friends come before leaders who perform, work hard, and do the right thing. Make your opinions of leaders based on YOUR observations, not others gossip.
    To HR, don't make friends at work, you should be unbiased.

    Pros

    They are a safety oriented company, very focused on the environment and stress safety every day.

    Cons

    They hire large groups with the promise of full time but keep little to no one up til the 90 day mark.

    Be open and honest with new hires upfront don't tell them it's full time tell them it's full time but many don't last past 90 days.
