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

    Pros

    It is very flexible with your schedule. the executives and managers are very easy to get along with. It is a place of team work. Zero tolerance for violence and harassment

    Cons

    Only the managers and executives are full time employees. The team members are all part time. The hours are not one set hours. It varies every week. After the christmas holiday is over hours are cut drastically.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its always best to ask the opinion of the workers about the job that they do because most of the time they know it more than the managers.

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

    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).
