I have been working at Target part-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great relationships formed with the team members and guests. Flexible schedule. Good team member rewards for productivity.

Cons

No opportunities for advancement at my store. A new target store opened less than 5 miles from our store which significantly reduced our sales, and reduced pay roll, making it very difficult to perform tasks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create more of a relationship with the team members rather than just being their boss. It's really appreciated when the management knows something about your life.

    I have been working at Target full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The culture at Target is awesome. Everyone is friendly and driven. The way things are set up are for the success of the employees there. Target likes to hire from within and moving up fast is very possible.

    Cons

    The hours are long and it gets crazy during the fourth quarter, but that's to be expected in retail.

    I worked at Target full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Advancement
    Fun culture...work hard and play hard
    Good company to have on the resume
    Great tools and capabilities
    Best in class training and development
    Great support and people
    Fun downtown location
    Great facilities and fringe benefits at HQ
    401k match

    Cons

    VERY Political, creates very noticeable differences in preferential treatment and opportunities for select few
    Strong experience, superior skills, and true talent not rewarded as much as those with MBA, come from big name school, or those who are just good at networking with the "right" people
    Ceiling to advance beyond certain levels if you don't have an MBA
    Work/life balance in core business areas
    Expensive to work downtown with parking costs
    Extremely young demographic due to up or out mentality

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote fairly from within. Agree that an MBA is worth more and does open doors, but the value they place on this is obsessive that puts people in roles that they can't handle due to lack of experience and the pay differential is excessive. Have known many very talent people exit Target due to frustration over this. Business-wise, they are doing a lot of the right things...keep up with the constant innovation.
