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 worked at Target part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I worked at Electronic dept. and it was great.

    Cons

    There were times where I had to rotate to different departments that was boring especially one time I was responsible in the Cosmetic dept. OMG, Im a guy and they putt me into that department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give some slack for sales floors during rush hours and near or during the holidays.
