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

    Pros

    Room for advancement, competitive salary. Meaningful work. Autonomy of decision making. Fast paced learning.

    Cons

    Can be difficult to stand out in the crowd. Advancement or being a short term team member can be as short sighted as having a manager who is vindictive. As in everything, it can be as much who you know as what you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The mentor program is sub-par and could use some more stringent parameters.

    Some Target stores will actually feed their employees for free and celebrate holidays within the workplace! The starting pay for me was great as well! Never poor management!

    I have been working at Target

    Pros

    Great work experience with amazing fellow employees. Hard work will be recognized in more than one way. The management is very skilled at pushing the vibe among team members.

    Cons

    Sometimes unorganized on properly staffing the store, which is understandable for retail. It gets nearly impossible to make the store look neat especially on weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing, I love the work environment and moral!
