    I have been working at Target full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    When you put in hard work you're rewarded for it. For part-time it's easy to get days off and the longer you work there the more benefits you receive.

    Cons

    Not every Target is the same. Many are run by amazing people but you'll always find people who hate their job or take it too seriously. People usually move in and out of Target often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'd advise management to want to promote their employees. The more employee's feel they play a large role in the store's success the harder they work.

    I have been working at Target full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Development, fun team/culture. It's a great place to work. As a manager, I've been able to influence our store culture directly. My new boss is awesome!

    Cons

    Not enough hours in the day, because I'm not salary, I don't always feel like there's enough time to take care of my responsibilities. Can't get promoted without a degree. Training is short and doesn't cover everything we need.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up

    I have been working at Target full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -provides amazing chances to learn, grow, and lead
    -lots of personalities lead to lots of potential connections and friendships, and lots of chances to learn how to deal with people you don't necessarily connect with
    -lots of opportunity to grow upward with company but you have to fight for it
    -go

    Cons

    -not spoon fed anything, so must be very entrepreneurial
    -pay kinda sucks as a team lead, but executives make pretty good money (granted you will not take more than 30 min of break time any given day of 9 hour+ shifts)
    -be flexible with your work schedule, because you'll be there late or super early at least twice a week

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -recognize your TMs and TLs
    -more feedback, especially if some one isnt seeking it directly

    I worked at Target

    Pros

    Learn a range of skills (customer service, people skills, phone skills, stocking, logistics etc). Great way to make friends.

    Cons

    Hard on your body to be on your feet all day. Customers are annoying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mix up the staff and put cashiers in the stocking room etc.
