I worked at Target full-time

Pros

They really take an interest in your personal development, developing your business acumen and your leadership style.
I enjoyed rolling out new initiatives in the store, it really aided in my development.
I loved the flexibility to make it right for a guest, made dealing with difficult situations much easier.
My STL really valued work/life balance, which was one of my concerns taking a management role in retail.

Cons

Depending on the size of your store, the amount of payroll to spend could be barely enough to scrape by.
Most of the bad parts of working at Target are the same as any other retail company (angry guests, hectic holidays, working weekends)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please allocate more payroll dollars to smaller stores, it would improve the brand of the store and keep the Team Members happy.

    Pros

    They promote from within, have good benefits, and flexible hours. I would suggest to a friend.

    Cons

    the fastest way to rise in target is through networking. Not hard work. Seasoned employees aren't valued as much as they should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should value seasoned employees more and make promotions about how hard people work not who their friends are.

    Pros

    Communication will help you way to enjoy the pros. If you don't put the effort, then you won't enjoy your job.
    Pay is better than Walmart for the most part.
    Most Target stores are safer and not as unreasonable as other retails.
    There are opportunities to rise in ranks, given qualifying and recognized resume.

    Cons

    Difficulty to rise in rank, due to competition.
    Risk of unfavorable leads or retail.
    May be boring for those seeking more out of their job.
    You must be self-accountable to avoid trouble.
