Never could get enough hours to support a family, the average weekly hours got was 18-20. there was never room for advancement.

    I worked at Target full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    10% Employee Discount
    Met some great people there, who were then fired. :(

    Cons

    Employee discount may only be used with cash or the Target credit card.

    Management and staff turnover was very high. Some managers only lasted a week or two.
    People were constantly under the axe.
    Our best managers were forced to resign 2 months after I was hired, reportedly because they refused to fire 50% of their teams on the order of a superior who transferred to the store the week before.

    Management acts to ensure that people will not be around long enough to effect change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rant: Stop having wars with each other that result in mass firings of staff over a stupid feud!
    Seriously, Reward results, not toadying. Keep your promises. Stop hiring people no-one on the team respects and placing them in positions of authority.

    Please stop driving people away and firing people, it makes for a very depressing work environment.

    I worked at Target full-time

    Pros

    Great learning base for career development, especially if you stay in retail and/or manufacturing. Looks good on your resume too!

    Cons

    Can be challenging to cross over to exempt positions if you start as non-exempt. Not impossible, but challenging from what I witnessed. This may have changed since then however.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cannot speak to this, since it's been over five years since I was there.
