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

    Pros

    Competitive wages for new tms, ability to cross-train, development days, opportunity for long term growth, 10% discount, leadership always finds cute ways to show tm appreciation, great resources, easily able to hold a tm accountable, constantly coming up with new ideas and company is heading in a great direction, flex stores are more community based, catered food for holidays, fulltime benefits start at 32 hrs, pto and holiday pay is great, leaders are only required to close one night a week, leaders get every other weekend off and one week day.

    Cons

    Computer systems are always down when you need them, never enough working equipment. Ive worked with horrible leaders and great leaders..unfortunately, most leaders only care about sales & store visits so you won't be noticed unless you work in an department that contribute tremendously to Target's sales growth. Areas like Starbucks & FoodAve are a complete black hole in most stores. It would be nice to include these in Target store visits every once and a while. You can have the highest guest connection scores, capture rate, guest check and profit margins in the group but you won't be able to excel unless you step out onto the floor & are noticed by your dm/rm/hrbp. It really all depends on your leadership team..but working with bad leadership has helped shape myself into a great leader over the years. Only other con is there is always a fight for hours as they are stolen for other departments. Hours are scarce especially from January to April.

    Advice to Management

    Try your hardest to keep team morale up, partner with your peers more often and help them succeed or even learn from them, HOLD YOUR TEAM ACCOUNTABLE, & if your leaders are doing a great job recognize them! Or at the least acknowledge their existence!

    Pros

    The people in this company seem to be nice people, and easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Everything is fake. You know the whole perception is everything, you literally have to fake it till you make it.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should also practice accountability and listening. You're not always right.

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

    Pros

    Medical/Dental/Vision Benefits

    Competitive Salary offer

    Grocery discount

    Break room snacks

    Cell phone discount

    First access to new product and services

    Cons

    -It’s not as diverse as you would think.
    -Target employees have some of the oddest personalities I’ve ever experienced.
    -NO work/life balance
    -Minimum 10 hour work days
    -AWFUL & UNCOMFORTABLE training
    -There is a lot of tenure (which could be a good thing) but for most employees, Target has been their only job, so there is no true experience nor fresh perspective. (Probably why they act so odd)
    -If you have prior management experience, this role will feel so remedial and pointless.

    Advice to Management

    There is so many things to fix. I don’t have enough space.

    Pros

    Great team environment and opportunities for development and promotion. If you are lucky enough to have great leaders supporting you then this job can be amazing but it all differs from group to group.

    Cons

    Work life balance is a struggle. Visit culture can also sometimes be tough when one bad visit can basically break your career.
