    I worked at Target full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    The people you work with (non Management). Discount comes in handy.

    Cons

    Management does not treat employees well. They do not appreciate "underlings" and like to play manager instead of managing by example.

    Advice to Management

    Show more appreciation to employees. Treat them like humans and not numbers.

    I worked at Target full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Lots of friends can be made here. It's nice working in a store because when you go on break or get off of work, you can buy your household essentials instead of having to wait to get off of work and go to the store. Constantly moving. Everyday was something different.

    Cons

    Long days when on flow team because of lack of other employees. Most hire ups have favorites and don't help with the work load. Raises were pathetic. Cents on the dollar. If you make them mad at you because of whatever they will cut your hours. You are replaceable and they know that. Insurance is horrible. High deductible even when you have the best plan. No paid time off. You have to acquire your vacation time. There...

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees that always go above and beyond what they are supposed to do. The employees that always stay late and come in everyday on time and are cross trained because of their willingness need to be paid better.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Target full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Employee discount of 10 percent. Matching 401k up to 5 percent. Decent benefits from what I hear.

    Cons

    Very tight crew so with call outs inevitable you are constantly calling for fast service (back up from other departments) however other teammates can be slow to respond or not at all. Cant leave front end to restock check lanes and end caps or take your break unless you have someone to cover but no one likes to cover or respond at times meaning you cant finish tasks or take a break.

    Advice to Management

    Flexibility when it comes to callouts and workload to be expected.

  7. Starting pay is $12 hr, after 90days you increase to the average $12.50 that a majority is paid regardless of years

    I worked at Target for more than a year

    employee discount and nothing else

    Cons

    inexperienced and immature management; constantly telling employees to do more tasks at a quicker pace

    Advice to Management

    Got your running shoes on for the laps you’ll race over 130,000 square feet? Ready, set, go! Ok, make sure you have your hand-held device and walkie, if there’s enough available today. If not, your day is bound to be interesting. Don’t know where everything is yet? No problem. Your shift may start as you return misplaced items to their original places, criss-crossing the store. Before you can find two or three...
