    Pros

    Salary and growth opportunities are available if you want. Fast paced and days go quickly

    Cons

    Over worked and no work life balance. They won't send you home. On your feet all day now which is nearly 10 -14 hour days

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    10 hours max a day needs enforced

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Pharmacy is a very close knit group of team members. Due, to the role pay is slightly higher.

    Cons

    They don't value input at the store level regarding activities. HR/Scheduling system sucks.

    Pros

    Fun team environment
    Great talented coworkers
    Lots of responsibility

    Cons

    Up or out culture
    Those who are good at networking get promoted
    Lots of politics
    Pay isn't great for those who work up from entry level positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the benefits offered to those employees in middle management. There is a long wait to get to Senior Buyer and no motivation to stay around and wait.

    I have been working at Target full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    If you love challenges and enjoy people, this is a great company; amazing team atmosphere, where you have the support of peers and supervisors. Vacation accrual and paid holidays are a big plus. Best part of Target is the leadership opportunity- especially for college grads/ early career managers who want to drive results ion a fast-paced environment

    Cons

    Constant changes within the core company are frustrating; work-life balance during the holidays/ weekends when your friends and family are off can be a turn-off... you end up celebrating non-traditional holidays, but it wears on you after awhile...
