    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Target full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The TLs and ETLs are very positive, and are very good at recognizing team members for achievements. If you work hard they are happy to help you move up in the company. There are always fun activities for the team members (volunteer opportunities, basketball tournaments, etc.) You get a 10% discount.

    Cons

    You don't always get a lot of hours, therefore you can't always take advantage of the benefit package. The team member discount is only valid when using cash, Target gift cards, or Target Redcard.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Keep motivating your team members to be and do their best!

    I have been working at Target full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Learn great communication skills and build friendships with many guests.

    Cons

    Most ETL's have no understanding what it is like to work as a normal team member. Most don't do any work and only care when corporate comes around which sometimes leaves team members discouraged.

    I have been working at Target full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -10% employee discount - holiday pay -minimum wage is $12.00 per hour

    Cons

    -No hours -They expect you to do the job of 3 people in the same amount of time. -Management does nothing but complain about what you didnt do rather than recognize all that you were able to complete

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, they actually do know what they're talking about sometimes.

    I worked at Target full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good pay for the work, Okay benefits, they try to develop female and minority leaders

    Cons

    Human resources has never been helpful, Inflexible hours (even though when you first start they say they will be flexible), zero accountability, VERY bureaucratic, chronically understaffed, morale chronically low

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if brand new team members weren't making the same as people that have worked there for 3+ years. This leads to dissatisfaction and low morale among your team members. Human resources should take complaints more seriously and brush less under the rug, especially if Target wants to maintain its "inclusive" reputation. Accountability for ALL team members should be enforced, not just the ones the HRTL...

    I worked at Target part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some of the co-workers that I was with were extremely hard working and nice.

    Cons

    Management does not care about their employees, while they are off talking or hiding in the back the rest of the team is left to cover their slack.

    I worked at Target full-time

    Pros

    Target worked well with schedules for those that were in school or had second jobs. I enjoyed the relationships that developed between people, almost like a family setting.

    Cons

    I didn't like the way some of management treated their employees, almost like they were work horses and nothing more. Without a college degree there is no place to go up in the company and some of the time-off policies were horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like robots as this doesn't give a very good environment for them to do an awesome job.
