    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Ten percent employee discount for everything but alcohol.

    Cons

    Poor training, company emphasis on earnings so hours are cut with the contradictory mantra of "fast fun friendly."

    Advice to Management

    Employees need more training with less emphasis on corporate earnings.

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

    Pros

    Good Friendly Atmosphere. Always something to do if you're willing to do it.

    Cons

    I saw too many good managers get let go. Not enough training time offered to people who care enough to learn more.

    Advice to Management

    I've noticed bad managers often throw good managers under the bus. The bad managers often form groups to get support from each other and have backup to verify their stories.

    Pros

    Great and fun team members.

    Cons

    Get blamed for almost anything that goes wrong in the store, literally. Sleep patterns are weird, hardest team to manage in all stores.

    Advice to Management

    dont take on this position with an offer lower than $18 per hour, or you'll go insane. Be kind to team members, work hard along side your team to gain their respect, and do your best to help out in other departments in the store, email everything so you can have proof of what you've helped with through out the year to receive a good review.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, many promotions and lateral turn over

    Cons

    Pay, upper management can be pencil pushers, demonstrate 0% of accountability

    Advice to Management

    Too many chiefs not enough Indians at times.

    I worked at Target as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was an excellent internship. They will take you though all of the departments in the store and teach you a lot. Constantly learning.

    Cons

    There is a bit of a hierarchy between the Store manager/executive team leaders and the Team members. If there was more interaction between the two the culture would improve.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. I'm sure with time they will improve the culture, but other than that, it's a great place to work.

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

    Pros

    You can purchase food during your lunch break, even though the store is closed.
    Great energetic people who keep each other away.

    Cons

    Days off change every week and sometimes you can end up working every weekend.
    No requests for days off for the first 3 months. If you want a day off you have to find someone who is willing to take your shift.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure managers actually follow through with opening a register for 15 minute break and lunch breaks. Some days it's hit or miss.
