    Pros

    You get lots of benefits and plans. la when you go outside it can be refreshing however but you can keep going to work.

    This place is a corporate store with lots of downsides. It doesnt taste like strawberries and makes my head hurt all the time.

    Pros

    Target accepts you for who you are. There is not certain "mold" that you have to fit to be appreciated!

    Cons

    Opportunities to advance are not as available as they are with other companies. Promotions and moves become a waiting game.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop and say thank you to your teams every once and a while. We work very hard store side and we don't get enough credit

    I worked at Target full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cross training available. Hours are there if your availability is open. Recognition is give verbally and "Great team cards."

    Cons

    Low pay. Low raises. And you will not advance within the company unless you have a college degree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire the people who have been there for a few years and know what they are doing (such as the team trainers), instead of these kids fresh out of college who has no idea what they're doing and just micro-manage. Target is notorious for being the "revolving door of managers" because they can't seem to hire anyone from outside who knows what they are doing.

    Everyone is very nice overall. The company is good about breaks and lunches

    Cons

    They have vibe talks at the end of each shift nd you have to discuss with a manager about your day if you got Red Cards

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand red cards are important but maybe try actually caring about us a little more
