Company culture

I feel like I can be myself at work, but I am very “Target-y” (outgoing, willing to try anything). I am Black, but I don't think that plays a part at Target as long as you're Black and “fit in.” Target is progressive, yet white.

Salary and benefits

From a total benefit structure, we're solid. There are places that are better and there are palaces that are worse. One of the biggest differences is in maternity leave - there are places that have much better maternity leave than us.

Diversity programs

There is a good mix of employee run organizations and corporate driven initiatives. And because a lot are employee-run, they're made by people who have been around for 2-5 years. They're being built by people who were recently in the shoes of new-hire so they're good at realizing/addressing what a new POC is going through specifically. They've been good at giving POCs the opportunity to have facetime with leadership and help build out their resume.

Promotion discussions

There are 2 parts of the promotion process. There's the part with your own manager about what you need to move on, and you'd have the conversation about your next career move. This part has been very clear in my experience. Managers are coached on their ability to be pretty forthright. The second part is with the hiring manager for the role you're applying for. There's not alot of transparency around what they're looking for, you really won't know until the end. You're not always aware of the criteria for the role.

Diversity programs

Most of the corporate initiatives have been around hearing diverse perspectives. There has also been education around what diversity means.

Salary and benefits

Our organization has just realized that a lot of URMs are doing work on the side and are now trying to figure out how we can get paid accordingly. I do alot of D&I work, which I would amount to 5-10 hours of additional work, and it was never an additional consideration when talking about bonuses or end of year reviews. That's the unfortunate side of working for a white organizations, we do alot of these side jobs with no reward.

Salary and benefits

Now I am fairly compensated, but that was after fighting for a promotion. Once you reach that level 6 role, then you are fairly compensated. Prior to that, I would say we lag compared to our competition.
August 12, 2020

Salary and benefits

One good plus is that we get 10% off, and some things we get 20% at the stores. We get a 5% match for 401(k). Prior to COVID, we have flexible work from home dynamics. The benefits have always been really good, but sometimes that's not enough when you feel like you're being undervalued for the work you're doing.

Promotion discussions

If you come in straight from undergrad, you will start in an inventory management role. You can continue in that part of the business, or you can move into something else. Those that are more closely tied to supply chain will be the easiest to understand what it takes to get promoted. When you look at some of the sister pyramids it's somewhat easy. And when you look at things that are completely different, it becomes very difficult to navigate.
August 12, 2020

Promotion discussions

The entry level is a level 4, after a year you can lateral to another position at the same level (moving pyramids), and after 18mo - 3 year you can get promoted within your pyramid (going from a 4 to a 5). You get pay raises for all movements, but movement within your same level is a 4-6% increase, but upward movement will be 8-15% depending on experience and different factors.

Accessibility

There is a program called Team Member Life resources which offer 5-6 sessions for members to talk to counselors. There's also resources for people to find primary care physicians, childcare, etc.
September 4, 2020

Training and career development

There are mentorship programs for everyone. There are self managed mentorship programs within each council. There's also a program you can go to where if you're looking for a mentor, they'll match you up with someone.Most leaders are happy for you to shoot them a note and explore a mentorship relationship.
September 4, 2020

Training and career development

Yes. The programs for career development depend on which org you're a part of. They're a little selective about it. It's usually for high performers who just need a little extra coaching to get to the next level.

Accessibility

I know for those who are blind (or vision impaired), they have accommodations. There are some campuses that are better for physical disabilities than others. Just depends on the campus.

Company culture

Work-life balance for my entry level job was non-existent. My middle job, I had a lot more control in setting boundaries but still had times when nights and weekends were required. And in my current position I can balance personal time with work life. I have full control over my schedule.

Company culture

It's in the midwest, so the culture is very reflective of that. A lot of those cultural aspects fall within Target. Minneapolis has a really strong base of people who grew up in the city and stayed.
September 11, 2020

Relationships with manager(s)

It's a very open door policy. Most leaders, until you get to senior director level, sit in the same cubical area as the rest of their direct reports
September 11, 2020

Relationships with manager(s)

From my experiences, all of my managers have had weekly or biweekly meeting cadences. I think the general culture is to have those very established status times. I could always bring in any career conversations that I wanted to have. It's ingrained in the culture.
September 11, 2020

Salary and benefits

Based on my research with other retail companies, our salary is comparable.
September 11, 2020

Promotion discussions

Target is so team based that you'll create a really strong connection with your team members. Since it's so team based you'll have the ability to be a little more open. When you go outside of your team, it's a little harder to bring your full self to work. There is a lot of opportunity in your day-to-day to identify people who you can share that with.
