    I worked at Target full-time

    Pros

    Target is an upbeat atmosphere for retail and they value growth and development of their team members. There are broad areas for growth.

    Cons

    As for any retail, the peak hours for you to work are the prime time hours you want to spend with family and friends - specifically holidays and weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that all the training necessary is offered before moving individuals up to the next promotion level. Also, additional compensation needs to be considered for key talent.

    I have been working at Target part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule Company life insurance and 401K 10%~15% discount I've never had a problem with them working around my school schedule or giving me personal days off so long as you give them a couple weeks notice.

    Cons

    20 hours a week if you're lucky No longer offers health insurance Can't advance without a degree in business It's alright if you just need some money but a career being anything but upper management is not a career you will want to strive for.

    Advice to Management

    No one buys your corporate jargon. I respect the managers who speak like human beings and don't just say what the company wants them to say. Keep realistic goals and let the employees know you are on their side.

    I worked at Target (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The overall culture and people at Target makes it a great place to work.

    Cons

    One downside, or can be seen as a positive, is that they keep you very insulated within Target, that you can lose touch with external networking.
