"I've been working at Target since August of 2012 and I've loved almost every minute of it. The atmosphere and coworkers are great. I would suggest anyone to work at Target to start off their career or just to put some money in their pocket while in school."

"I've worked for Target for the last 2.5 years and have found it to be a very positive experience in professional development. Target provides a magnitude of opportunities most companies cannot, especially in the Twin Cities. Though Target is a large corporation, they are very aware of the constant need to change and optimize."

"A good company to work for overall. Treatment of employees is fantastic. Focus on safety and customer (guest) services over task at all times. They are family oriented.The only downfall is with employment status. Each store is limited on Full Time employees. Which makes it difficult to reach full time status. In return limits the amount of hours able to be worked by an individual.Scheduling is the in-between. Schedule changes week by week. Some days my stay consistent while others will always vary. Everything depends on sales and what is needed throughout the store."

"Over all my experience with this company has not been very good, sub par at best"

What do you like about working at Target?

"The hours, during peak sales seasons, are great and overtime is almost a given during the holidays. If your boss likes you, then you really have no worries. All of your coworkers (aside from managers) are usually always on your side and will back up your decisions, if they make sense. When you do actually get training, it is informative and very thorough, and they tend to follow up with you to make sure you fully understand your duties. For the most part the work is pretty easy and laid back."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"If you really want to apply and accept a call for an interview, be prepared to answer questions pertaining to past work experiences, specifically in retail environments. Go in and speak to the store manager after applying, they like to see a sense of urgency when it comes to those seeking a position in their company. Do not wait on this company, if you do that then they will never call you in for an interview, if they don't call you in a week after speaking to the store manager, then go back in and speak to someone else and see if they can help out by pushing your application. Also expect to be there for a very long time, for orientation, if you accept a job, they give you a full tour of the store and require that you do cashier training during orientation, every employee in Target is trained on the cash registers, whether you work in the back or the sales floor."

What don't you like about working at Target?

"The management is very restrictive on many things. They like to watch your every move and comment on it in a very negative way, almost to the point of harassment, it gets to be very overbearing at times and it's very easy to reach your breaking point. They're not very keen on anyone who breaks social norms, for example: they do let you dye your hair any color you want, but if they don't like the color you choose, your hours will reflect it, also, if you wear any sort of clothing that does not match up 100% with being a masculine man or a feminine woman, your hours will reflect negatively. They're not very understanding about things like deaths in the family, they tend to see it as a chore to give you any sort of paid/unpaid leave for grieving. Over all it is not really a great company if you're seeking a well oiled, professional environment, unless you really enjoy micro-management and nepotism, which also runs rampant through the company."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Loosen up and allow your employees to work without constantly breathing down their necks. Once they're trained, and have been doing it for a while, they know what they're doing and they can do it efficiently. Embrace all aspects of society, do not be so opposed to things that break the mold, allow people to be individuals and do not punish them for it by taking away their hours."

"Your work experience often depends upon what you make it."

What do you like about working at Target?

"Flexibility in scheduling, benefits, and the understanding that employees need to balance work and home life. Not saying you can call out every weekend to go partying, but if you need an extra day off here or there they won't sever your head if you ask for it."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"You must be customer-service oriented first and foremost. Ask a lot of questions, and do some research on the company beforehand."

What don't you like about working at Target?

"Opportunities to advance without education are limited. Only those who are team leads or higher can participate in education reimbursement. This is a bummer for me and I believe it would help create long-term employees out of some people."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I've worked through three STL's (store team lead, aka manager) and two ETL's (executive team leads). The older the manager, the more engaged they seem to be with making employees happy and comfortable. The younger, less-experienced ones need to lean on their elders a little bit and learn from them."
