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

    Pros

    (Speaking from the store-level) The people you work with are great! Being around such smart, focused, hard working, kind and funny individuals is what will keep some people there long after they are ready to go. The money and benefits are good. The leadership development is great. The culture and ethics of the company are outstanding.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is rough. Minimum 50 hours a week is the expectation, I never worked less than that. The level of expectation at the store level is often unrealistic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be aware of what the ETL's are experiencing within each district.

    I have been working at Target

    Pros

    Fun environment, prizes, laid back environment

    Cons

    Training is okay-really depends who you get as a trainer
    Work-life balance is hard. Your schedule constantly changes, you'll work nights and weekends. Holidays are stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The pay needs to increase. Your employees don't feel valued because of this. If you give someone a training position, offer a pay raise...not just a picture on the wall..

    I have been working at Target part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    You meet great people, coworkers& guest. There's never nothing to do, & if you're like me.. That's GREAT! Forever moving and making things better.

    Cons

    I think it all depends on management but at my store they made it difficult to have a flexible schedule . Also they do 3 weeks worth of schedule's which is good sometimes but then others it's not because well... Life happens

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to communicate with teammembers better . Work with them not against them . Have respect in order to get respect, don't think just cause you have a bigger title you can talk to teammates however you like. Remember without us you wouldn't have anything .

    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    Target worked with my schedule and gave me the hours I needed. I also returned during the holiday season when I was home from college. The employee discount is also nice.

    Cons

    I didn't feel like other employees cared about their jobs and sometimes even the management seemed that way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to seem enthusiastic and supportive to the hourly employees.

    Fun team, working in a store environment setting, great transitional job to have throughout high school and college.

    Many layers of management, performance evaluations not always reflective of work conducted, raises are very small

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know more about your employees before passing judgement about them, especially if you never work with them directly.
