    I worked at Target full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company as a whole is very inclusive and diverse. Target gives the opportunity for upward mobility to people that might be overlooked by other companies. The benefits are great and the pay can be great also if you work hard enough for it.

    Cons

    Retail as an industry is changing very fast. The opportunities for advancement are evaporating quickly. Target is not immune to the changing landscape of retail. They are quickly getting rid of middle management just like everyone else.

    Advice to Management

    There are hardworking and talented team leaders that are willing to change with the company as it changes. They are invaluable to the future of Target. Unfortunately they are being used as scapegoats to protect ETL's that are scrambling to save their own jobs. The company wide changes are embraced by the leaders that want to be the change you need. We are being discarded by the leaders that fear the necessary changes.

    Pros

    Great company benefits. Room for growth and promotions. Lots of resources for operating efficiently. So many locations that transferring within the company is feasible.

    Cons

    This company seemed to be very gossipy among management. Stores in the same district had very different store cultures and HR practices. Low accountability follow-up.

    I worked at Target full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I started here as a Team Member and there were many opportunities for advancement. Leadership teams usually rotate weekends and most stores are flexible with scheduling. I was able to go to school full time and stay employed with Target full-time. There processes are by the book and when executed properly - are very effective. The company has many programs that promote team unity and cohesion. The benefits were great when I was employed with them, although I'm sure they have changed over time.

    Cons

    As with any retail company, you will have to work nights, weekends, and some holidays. Expectations of a Target Team Member seem to exceed those of some competitors in order to offer exemplary guest service. Store leadership can vary from location to location. If the company guidelines aren't followed - team morale will suffer.

    Advice to Management

    While there is opportunity for advancement, I would like to see Target promote from more from within rather than taking new recruits from the Target Business School. Team Members who have been with the company for years respect and value the company and have much to offer.

    Pros

    Allows you to move up in the company if you want to. Will help you reach the highest goal you want to achieve

    Cons

    Hours can dramatically drop from time to time causing friction in the building between teams. Some of the more seasoned workers aren’t treated as well as they should be

    Advice to Management

    Keep your team members informed

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

    Pros

    The brand is great and the improvements the company is making are very smart. Pay for leadership Ian all levels is very competitive.

    Cons

    There just isn’t enough time or attention devoted to the things that matter - growing sales and developing people. Expectations are high and resources are scarce sometimes.

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

    Pros

    Store level employees are great to work with and good advancement opportunities. Fast paced environment keeps work interesting and challenging.

    Cons

    Group, region and corporate are out of touch with daily retail environment. Expectations continue to rise with annual store management positions being condensed, putting more strain on team and morale. As a salary team member, work/life balance suffers.

    Advice to Management

    Unannounced, unconstructive visits with the purpose of boasting upper management egos come across as bullying tactics.

    Pros

    For the most part, there is an opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Being in a leadership position, there is not much of a work/life balance. You have to work every holiday that Target is open for.
