Pros

Target paints the big picture for your long-term career destination, and gives you the development tools and feedback you need to be successful in reaching your career goals. You come to really know how to leverage your strengths and improve your opportunities as a leader through feedback.

Cons

Target leaders are expected to be very global and sometimes it really cuts into your time/ability to drill into driving results in the areas that you own and are accountable to. ETL's. The training program for new ETL's is insufficient at preparing you to be successful in your role on day one. Your most valuable training will come after being thrown into your position under-prepared and learning to succeed through trial and error.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want stores to drive specific metrics then your leaders need the proper tools to hold Team Members accountable to driving those results (ex: individual achievement statistics for AAR, who is performing at what level based off of transactions), and Team Members need the appropriate incentives to drive those results (ex: base plus commission TM's in electronics, or more than a .25 cent raise per hour for being an electronics TM).

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

    Pros

    The team has always been great to work with no matter the store I've been at.

    Cons

    At times the workload seems extremely overwhelming with no sense of when it will ever end...but Thessaly those times have been few in number.

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

    Pros

    Above average Pay
    Good benefits
    Strong Management
    Customer service stressed
    Was hired for new store, and told what level I would be upon hiring, instead of having everyone do the same work, and then after 30 days, being told what position you would have, and pay rate

    Cons

    Schedule was too erratic
    Always re-doing flow team's stocking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication between flow team and sales floor, please!
