Created an environment where you're encouraged to be yourself in the working environment. Creating a working environment where feedback is encourage to help you and others complete tasks more efficiently. Growth within the company can be expected.
I've worked for Target for 11 years across a number of business areas. Over those 11 years, Target has faced it's share of challenges and obstacles, but some of the hallmarks of the organization are the development culture and focus on results. I really enjoy the people I have worked with including peers and leaders. I have found Target to provide opportunities for advancement if you know your business, work well with your stakeholders, and focus on driving the best guest experience.

Managers overloaded you with work to do but did not provide appropriate help to complete tasks in the time allotted. Would then hold you accountable for things you had no control over despite you going out of your way and above and beyond to make sure everything was completed.
work around your schedule
Short breaks, heavy workload, No advancement, no support from managers.

First job out of college. They promised me that I would promoted to Assistant Manager with 60 days. I worked hard, followed directions promptly and was always on time. When I brought up the promotion after 40 days, they gave me specific instructions on what to do and I did them. When I accomplished those things, they said that they weren't looking for an assistant manager anymore. 10 days later they had a new assistant manager. When I asked them about it, they didn't give me an answer. After that, I decided to quit.
At Target I was a manager were I provided great guest service to customers. Everyday I was able to learn something new, from new procedures to learning from my peers. In a days work I would re-stock end-caps, checkout guest on register, help out at guest service, and help guest out throughout the store. The workplace culture was great I met new people every week. The hardest part of the job was dealing with short handiness. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and making sure the guests had a fast, fun, and friendly experience at Target.
Highly recommend. I did my 6 weeks rotation with Target Pharmacy and I hope that I can come back to work for them after graduating from pharmacy school. Unfortunately, CVS Health bought out Target pharmacy and I did not have a chance to work for them. I love the environment and culture of Target department.

Management is poor I got fired because someone came along with my ex and got me fired by saying I scratched their car when I was inside the whole time from open to close and didnt even leave the store even on my lunch break so. Terrible management for listening to some petty upset angry cheating ex.
Good cheap tv's and good discount
Short breaks and terrible attitudes from coworkers
Guest Service Team Member/ Starbucks Team Member (Former Employee) – Sterling Heights, MI – June 21, 2017
working for target was the worst. I worked every front end position there was, including food production. The customers were rude and demanding and the managers had no sympathy for any kind of problem that occurred. You were always at fault, not the "guest". In the end I quit over the stress and anxiety, because it was making me physically ill. They wouldn't give breaks and expected you to work without what is legally required. there is total disregard for the starbucks staff and zero help from management, who yell at you for not producing drinks fast enough, then yell at you after you finally stand still a moment after finishing cleaning. Just total hypocrites and heathens. Useless and uncaring. They just want you to work, and then quit, so they don't have to give you that 5 cent raise at the end of the year. I also tried to commit suicide in one store's bathroom because my manager was so ruthless and mean to me.

Overall very good company. You learn something new everyday and develop a set of skills. As an individual I have grown and have done things I once thought I cannot do so It was a great experience and a pleasure to work for such a company.

It's a very aesthetically pleasing place to work and customers are often very polite, although management was always jumbled and made working very difficult. Having too many direct managers with conflicting ideas and not enough communication on radios.
