Research Analyst (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNDecember 5, 2017
validating data, writing SQL scripts, loading data, extracting data, analyzing data. Target has already decided who they want to promote, so if you are not on the list, there is no chance to get promoted. The last few years that I worked at Target was not enjoyable. Target is a micromanaging company in all aspects of the company, from HR down to the stores. The hardest part of the job was the continuous change. I had many years of great and respectful management, but in the last year, my manager was unavailable and was not truthful or honest. Since being gone from Target, I feel very relieved and happier.
Pros
Discount, 401K, continuous learning
Cons
Micromanaging company

Financial Planning Technician (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNDecember 1, 2017
At Target, they always encouraged on-going training and advancing in career opportunity. Most of my computer technology and skills sets, I attribute to my training at Target Corporation.

Fun
Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNNovember 30, 2017
Although it was fun most of the day it was stressful, not because of the team it was the neighborhood. Helping guests was mostly great but many of the guests seemed as if they did not trust us. Keeping the sales floor full and knowing everything possible about the product was always important and a great way to get through the day.
Pros
Free lunch
Cons
Healthcare, and store location

Difficult to Advance
Sourcing Manager (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNNovember 27, 2017
Management focused on gaining visibility instead of developing teams. Very "status-oriented" culture with lots of networking required- i.e. "coffee statuses".

Real Estate Analyst (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNNovember 8, 2017
Pretty sure most people know how Target operates. You are in a team, then you move to another team, then another. Eventually you drink the red kool-aid and are stuck for life.

Fun Entry-Level Position
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNOctober 31, 2017

Pros
Flexible working hours.

Limited room for growth.

Had a great time working for Target
Technical Lead (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNOctober 26, 2017
As a contractor, typical day was development activities during regular business hours and then production support late in the evening and night. With good support team from Syntel offshore, was able to complete all deliverables.

Fast, Fun and Friendly
Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNOctober 20, 2017
It was a fast fun and friendly environment and they keep you very busy but from time to time the work was very repetitive which made it difficult to keep doing the same tasks.

Did not Enjoy
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNOctober 18, 2017
A day as a cashier at Target consisted of you being harassed to sale Red Cards. If you sale 2 cards Monday you need to sale 3 Tuesday and so on. If you sale the cards then the managers are your best friends, but then they criticize you daily when you don't sale them.
Pros
Nice breaks, time goes by fast when busy
Cons
Bad management, favoritism, forced to sale Red Cards

As a company Target is going through a lot of changes.
Guest Services (Current Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNOctober 13, 2017
Things are changing quickly from the top down in this company and it seems that the roles that the different positions have are not black and white or consistent. Many company policies are not being enforced, or ignored, and it is hard to know where to draw the line. Due to the rapid rate of change it is difficult to know which policies are to be upheld and which ones aren't. This company seems to be moving away from the "family" atmosphere for the team members to an atmosphere of supporting those guests that have a sense of entitlement.
Pros
Made some great, life long friends.
Cons
Inconsistant management

Fun place to work, not paid enough for position
Guest Service Attendant (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNOctober 12, 2017
GSA position at Target was very fun but also very stressful. You do almost the exact same work as a team lead for significantly less money.
Always having to be berated for your cashiers not getting enough redcards got really old.
If you like fast paced work though Target is definitely for you.
Pros
Fast pace, always something different, fun atmosphere
Cons
Very low pay for work

Guest Service Manager (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNOctober 6, 2017
Working at the South Minneapolis Target was pretty fun. I was a GSA and managed the front end cashiers. never had a problem with any of them. Most of the employees there followed company rules but some were pretty out of control.

Overall have good things to say about the organization. For the most part leadership was attentive and looked after their teams. Processes could be a bit bureaucratic at times, but nothing outside of what I've seen at other large organizations.
Pros
Friendly culture, employee discounts
Cons
Layoffs recently were a challenge to the culture
