    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 5 years

    Pros

    The company has a good work-life balance and the pay is actually pretty good. The people you work with are awesome and the company has a great culture. If you put in the time and take initiative, you can be very successful.

    Cons

    It's the same stuff as any big company but the bureaucracy and politics can get tiring. The problem is that the experience is dramatically different in each area of the company depending on who the leader is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen some of the restrictions and rules in place and let each SVP own their pyramid.

    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.

    Pros

    Daily huddles for store wide recognition of hard work or exceptional service, opportunities to volunteer and they give you the time off, 10% off, first to see the clearance, saw employees as people not just warm bodies, really cares about guests.

    Cons

    Very corporate, LOTS of red tape. Definite division between exec's and lower level staff.

    Pros

    Friendliness, high-class organization, well-respected

    Cons

    At times, it can be difficult getting the necessary respect from guests because of the Target security breach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pushing the Target "vibe." Guests love dealing with friendly team members.
