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

Pros

Working around a wide variety of interesting people is fun, but the ability to cross-train and have opportunity for career advancement is above all the best perk.

Cons

Dealing with angry guest from time to time can be high stress, especially as GSTL. But being able to overcome problems and find solutions is very rewarding and makes it worth the tough times.

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

    Pros

    Target is an awesome company to work for. If you ever need time off there are many people willing to take a shift for you. The company and the guests are the reasons to work for this company, PLUS they promote from within.

    Cons

    The pay is barely over minimum wage even for GSA's and other lower end management positions like Team Leads.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees better and you will keep them. I have worked with some of the best team members in my life at Target and it always makes me sad to watch each and every one leave because they can get so much more at any other job they apply for.

    Former Employee - Team Leader in Boulder, CO (US)
    Former Employee - Team Leader in Boulder, CO (US)

    I worked at Target full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Reasonable pay for retail
    - Good work culture
    - Good schedule/hours (by retail standards)
    - Focus on development
    - Diverse and fun team

    Cons

    - College degree required to promote to ETL. I was told directly that I exceeded the expectations of my position and was ready for promotion but would not be considered without at least a two year degree.
    - Inconsistent standards and expectations from store to store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reconsider the policy that ETL's and above must have a degree. You are losing quality "retail" people because of tis.
