    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    The pay is good

    Cons

    Not very nice to new people. Heard whispers about new people constantly. Everything blamed on them. Some management very rude and unfair. Slave-drivers

    Advice to Management

    Watch your biases against age groups. Give more credit, and don't expect so much when you can only do so much yourself.

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

    Pros

    10% discount, and super happy after quitting Target.

    Cons

    No respect for team members. Arrogant team leads. Sales not possible without basic members. Management and District have own hidden agenda. Not allowed to have a water bottle with you.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to say hello when you enter the store. We are making your sales!

    Pros

    Fun work, loved leading, building a team, being responsible for store results

    Cons

    Management has little to no experience

    Advice to Management

    Advance from within, trust your leaders, seek feedback from all affected team members rather than directing from on high

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay, plus team member discounts.

    Cons

    Long gone are the days of fast, fun, friendly team. One person is expected to do the job of 10 now that the base starting wage has gone up. The average career for executives and middle managers within a Target store is 2 years now... good thing too because who can withstand more than 2 years?

    Advice to Management

    Headquarters dreams up ways to save money that are often impossible to support at the store level.

    I worked at Target (More than a year)

    Pros

    None- I guess other than the salary they lure you in with

    Cons

    Overworked. underpaid. HIGH turnover. HIGH HIGH HIGH turnover. 2 weeks into my employment, they had let go 4 people in my role. Building was open for about 6-7 years when I arrived. Some hourly team members had gone through 30 managers. Think about that for a minute. Have stayed in touch with some people from building since I have left- close to 75% turnover in management in a year.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your leadership. Actually utilize your companies' vast resources to retain leaders rather than dump them over and over. You have fresh managers learning the operation monthly. Not a good look for hourly employees.

    I worked at Target (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked in the grocery department exclusively which gave me a lot of freedom and allowed me to avoid working anywhere else in the store (which I hated). Met some great friends, time off was easy to attain, paid above minimum wage

    Cons

    Really depends on the store's leadership more than anything. So many promotions and attempts to improve shopping experience or improve the store in some way. Other crap employees can make the job more difficult for you and it is VERY difficult to get fired once you are established

    Advice to Management

    Don't try to make me care about store sales or how numbers are in the rest of the district. It doesn't matter to me and it doesn't impact how I work.

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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to develop as a leader, compared to other big box retailers Target is progressive and is intent on remaining relative. Transparency from HQ and room for empowerment and business ownership. Great pay if the performance is there.

    Cons

    Hours can be long, and customer service can have major downsides when issues are out of the store's control (i.e. inventory levels and variety of selections).

    Pros

    Easy job, people of all personalities, holiday pay

    Cons

    Most of the team are idiots, no ambition, no incentive to work hard, very clickish...if you are not a popular person your life will be hell

    Advice to Management

    Don't be dumb, make your hard workers feel appreciated
