    I have been working at Target part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Target is able to give to its team members: Flexible hours, good environment, benefits and team member discount on things in the store

    Cons

    Target could do better by: Pay could be better, benefits don't kick in until one year employment, CVS just bought Target pharmacy so maybe no more team member discount.

    I have been working at Target full-time

    Pros

    Work-life balance is manageable and the majority of leaders and comfortable giving latitude provided you perform well. Strong promote-from-within culture but that is starting to change. Company is very flexible in helping people develop and open to people carving career paths across the organization. Great downtown facilities for the most part.

    Cons

    HQ is going through a lot of change - much of it needed, but there is not a ton of clarity on reasoning for recent re-structures. Moving between teams is becoming more challenging as leaders start to prioritize more functional expertise versus diverse career experience and perspective.

    Advice to Management

    The HQ culture will need to be re-built following all the restructuring in 2015, and the luster of working at Target will need to be restored by HR and the leadership team.

    Pros

    All you have to do is put things where they belong... On the shelves. Oh and help guests look for things and check out of the store.

    Cons

    Boring, mundane, repetitive, makes you want to die type of work...

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, good people, laid back in a lot of ways.

    Cons

    - Black Friday (Company doesn't care about their employees and their family life) - Working any major holiday is insane.
