I worked at Target full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

I met some of the best friends I will ever have there

Cons

Giving your all for a company that considers you disposable and is not shy about sharing that feeling with its staff is one of the most demoralizing things I have ever gone through. Work life balance is non existant as they expect you to live, breath, eat and sleep "Fast Fun and Friendly" while giving only hollow praise back, while all the while watching for each team member to stumble so they can be "coached".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire ETL's that actually HAVE management experience in a real world environment, not just plastic college graduates that stand around looking helpless when confronted with an issue or a problem

    I have been working at Target part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I have some really awesome co-workers; they make coming to work every day fun and worthwhile. Target has an amazing 401k. It's fast paced and time flies.

    Cons

    The executives don't spend much time on the floor. They take long lunches and have even longer meetings. Most of them lack common sense or experience. Few, if any, have worked their way up from a part-time position. They come in straight out of business school or internships and have zero retail experience.
