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

    Pros

    Clean store, better than Walmart

    Cons

    Pay, work, team members. I was a Team Member for a year and a half before being promoted. Then they fired half the store and expected team leaders to pick up the slack. They raised minimum wage to $12 but cut team members hours or removed positions. Beware retail.

    Advice to Management

    Raise pay, hire better team members, don't use Team Leaders as 3 or 4 extra team members.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, accommodating HR, fast pace

    Cons

    Poor pay, no room for growth: this is a company that plays the popularity game

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring first time college grads with no work experience, they usually leave within a year and creates an unstable work environment

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

    Pros

    Have a chance to meet some great leaders. Have a chance you really develop younger talent and most appreciate it. Chance to go to other store around district to help assist building pano.

    Cons

    4 STLs in 2.5 years. Wants you to reprove yourself every time a new STL comes in. STL focus on themselves instead of helping develop talent. ETLs more into what you do out the store than what you do in the store. Definitely get lost in the shuffle there. If STL isn’t behind you you have absolutely no chance. If you take a new position in the company you have to wait 18 months for you to be considered for any other promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your talent. Not on what you do good or what you did good. Worry about your store and what some of your great team members are doing instead of what you think is the right way. Actually show and develop instead of pointing and directing. I have no idea why target uses the term leaders because most are managers instead and have no idea how to actually lead a team.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great pay for a retail job, The minimum raise has been raised to 12$/hr for anyone who is hired. Flexable scheduling, paid vacation eventually and the discount is nice.

    Cons

    Depending on the managers who work there, there can be a lack of communication with everyone, sometimes you dont get the hours you want because if they dont make the sales goal for the month they loose hours to give away to people so peoples hours get cut.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fun inclusive environment - everyday is different and presents new day-to-day problem solving opportunities to challenge creative thinking with existing resources.

    Cons

    Little room for growth - upper management is only concerned about retail operations and not personal career movements. Management relies on team leaders to resolve difficult problems - sometimes role conflict with what you're role actually entitles versus what you're actually doing on a day-to-day basis.

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

    Pros

    Pay rate, benefits, hours, every other weekend off. Holiday pay. Very fast paced, and very up to date on styles.

    Cons

    If you are not good at multitasking, this job is not for you. You have to do most of the work load by your self.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key. Make sure you are all on the same page when delegating tasks to team members.

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

    Pros

    - Easy movement within the company so long as you have a degree and people like you.
    - Sometimes you have the freedom to run your team and sales floor section as you like.
    -Pay and benefits are great if you negotiate well.

    Cons

    - Its hit or miss if you'll end up working with a boss who really wants to see you succeed.
    - It's a bit of a popularity contest in management,; if you want to really move up you have to be liked by everyone higher up than you.
    - It can be a very cult-like, one-of-us, type environment. Even if the rules say you can do something, if no one else does it you cant either or you arent considered a team player.
    - Theres often not enough equipment for everyone in the store so it can be difficult to do your job properly.
    -Theres not specific training guide so if youre coming in from outside the company it can be almost impossible to be as good at things as you want to be without massive effort.

    Advice to Management

    Standardize training and give your employees more of a voice.
