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

    Pros

    Employee discount on almost all store items.

    Cons

    Almost no chance of a promotion if you already work for the company, the highest you can go is to Senior Team Leader, still just an hourly position. They would rather promote from the outside because they think we are a bunch of incompetent slackers.

    Advice to Management

    When the STL & ETL positions were backfilled before the recession in 2008 it created an atmosphere where those "leaders" will do anything to hold onto their jobs even when they are not qualified because they can't make that kind of money elsewhere. They will force out the good Team Leaders because they are seen as a threat. Flow Team and Logisitics work like dogs, the others have much lower expectations for the same pay and the STL just ignores that fact.

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

    Pros

    As a full time Sr. Team Lead you get 40 hours a week.

    Cons

    ETL managers are all straight out o collage and not experience enough and stores are being run by the Sr. Team Leads who have been there longer than them who try to get promoted to ETL but keep getting shot down.

    Advice to Management

    Promote within it would save you lots of payroll and training hours.

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

    Pros

    Co-workers are the only decent thing about working at Target. Well, they give you food in the break room when you have to work holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve. Also, the dress code is decently lenient. Red and khaki anything.

    Cons

    Management pushes Redcards on cashiers as if someone's life depends on it. It's repetitive, redundant, and unnecessary. It's not retail that bothers me, it's Targets way of doing what they do. Their employees don't matter to them-- it's all about sales goals and Red Card applications.

    Advice to Management

    Stop harassing your employees for not being able to convince customers to sign up for your debit/credit card. We can't help it if we repeatedly ask them and push it and they say no no no!!!

    I worked at Target (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you definitely have the aptitude for sales, and love a career that thrives on constant interaction with people coming and going, Target is one of those. It is a good startup stage for high school students to get a hands on working to supplement their allowances. it is a wonderful place for upstarts to build integrity.

    Cons

    However, if you are in between jods, Target is Not a place for the academic inclined. Rotated like cattle, you just might find out your supervisor might barely or not be able to pass a fifth grade exam, but has been around long enough to give orders no matter how thoughtless.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just make it a catch phrase on paper. Encourage education by actually identifying those with demonstrated academic achievement and send them to train in areas that meet their aptitudes and which will be useful to Target. Any employee wants to know there is recognition for achievement, as well as room for career progression.

    They pay well, cares about you being hurt on the job.

    Poor treatment of employees, unreasonable demands, poor scheduling, low morale, can't go to higher ups for fear of being reprimanded by direct manager.

    Advice to Management

    Treat team members better then they might stay.
