    Pros

    Made some amazing friends. You truly do become a part of a family. It's a highly stimulation work pace--there is always something to be done. There's a really great opportunity for internal growth.

    Cons

    As with any company where you work with other people--it can be challenging when other's do not do their own work. It's heavily team based so if one person/team is slacking it falls on another individual/team to recover. Can be "clicky."

    Advice to Management

    Former team member and also for former management here: my advice to anyone--do not be afraid to get your hands dirty. Redirecting tasks to team members can be a useful method to get workload done. But don't be afraid to help them. Often times team members get frustrated with leadership for "never working," just assigning tasks. Jump in and help out--get to know your team. It makes a world of difference.

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

    Pros

    There is a lot of opportunity to grow within the company

    Cons

    Not much of training, they put you into the role and you have to figure it out on your own. Peers are not very helpful more quick to throw you under the bus for self interest. Environment is not the best. Team members don't care. Unrealistic expectations for all Managers and team members. The pay is great but not worth the work.

    Advice to Management

    Support your managers and give them the proper tools to succeed. Be realistic with the expectations. Be more aware of the actual opportunities.

    Buying red tops. The commute time

    Advice to Management

    Continue the positive reinforcement

    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.
