"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."

"Have a clear understanding of what retail management is like and make sure you honestly can see yourself in it for the long haul."

"Know something about the company. Be prepared to do a lot of work without being paid enough for it."

What don't you like about working at Target?

"Understaffed, everything isn't as straightforward as it should be, training is a mess, can't access a lot of things from the website that you should, website doesn't run on macs."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I have no clue who my manager actually is. I don't know if my team lead is the manager, or if the person above them is the manager. If I were running things, there'd be less acronyms, things would be more straight-forward, training would be a little more involved, cashiers would get walkies, and there'd be more than 2 people closing the fricking store."

What do you like about working at Target?

"The company does make an effort for recognition of some team members. The environment was fun the majority of the time. You can easily build relationships with your team and your peers if you put time and effort into it."

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

"They tend to hire into upper management with new college graduates with no experience. Moving up the ranks even with an education was still a who you know game."

What don't you like about working at Target?

"Politics play a huge role with the ETL team. Since the majority of the ETL staff were fresh college graduates they had no previous work related experience. The team leads are the foundation of the store organization and keep the ball moving. Team leaders are expected to do a lot and when they become vocal and want to challenge leadership they are quickly put into the process of CCA's and coachings."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I would have made more of an effort to interact with the team. The team will respect you more if they see that you understand them as people and not just work horses. The majority of the time my boss spent their time in the offices hanging out or eating in Target Cafe."
