    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Typically a judgement free place to work. Pay is fair.

    Cons

    Advancement opportunities are almost impossible. Higher positions are typically outsourced.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and sympathetic with your team. Don’t make them work harder promising “talks” of advancement if you know that’s not your intention.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay, decent benefits, mostly strong leadership.

    Cons

    Inconsistent policies that are ever-changing. Lots of responsibility regardless of pay grade.

    Advice to Management

    Work with the team to make new policy changes work in a way that is fair and efficient. It's important that as we add new responsibilities and policies that we also make it all understood and fair to all team members.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are great, they're supposed to be flexible with your availability so going to school and working here is nice.

    Cons

    Its retail, you will always have a difficult guest every once in a while that will ruin your day. The managers run the break and lunch schedules for all cashiers. Sometimes you wont get your break until 3 hours into your shift which is horrible considering that you're standing in one spot the entire time. We're almost always understaffed. I do also feel as though I spend too much of my life at target. Work, Sleep, then back to work.

    Advice to Management

    Schedule more people per day.

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

    Pros

    Culture, team, interactions with our guests, it was an incredible experience and I honestly loved it

    Cons

    Hours and the opportunities for advancement were limited unless you were recruited from local business college

    Advice to Management

    Work with your current team members for executive positions, less turnovers and staff who already know and love target. Don’t over look them!

    Pros

    Great pay and not to hard of work

    Cons

    Benefits aren’t the greatest and Management is mainly kids straight out of college because it’s easier for them to become managers then current team members who have experience

    Advice to Management

    Stop making it harder for current employees to become part of the management team then people straight out of college with no experience

    Pros

    Target has their own language. It doesn’t take long to see why they call you a team member and not just an employee.

    Cons

    It’s a corporation and with it comes your typical corporate stuff...

    Mostly decent to great people working there

    Cons

    Nearly impossible to move up in the company
    Biased higher ups

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees if they have a problem with certain higher ups, Especially if multiple people take an issue with them, instead of ignoring them and letting that higher up take advantage of that.
