    Pros

    Working at Target helped me a lot with my personal development and build my social skills. Also I started training and guiding our new employees. They are going to train me for guest services as well, after that I will be able to start taking care of costumer services requests.

    Cons

    I never found any thing challenging while working at target. They are very flexible with the time of or availability hours. The trainers were very helpful and supportive.

    I worked at Target

    Pros

    Hands on experience; problem solving skills and interpersonal skills tested; time management and managerial skills all are a part of the experience.

    Cons

    Early mornings and late nights. Retail is unpredictable so work days did not always go as planned. All of the skills gained weren't necessary to be successful at the job.

    Pros

    Team Member Discount, matching 401K, flexible hours, ability to cross train and learn new areas

    Cons

    Time-off during the 4th quarter, compensation, hours are all over, no one is full time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its just really hard to maintain a life-work balance, when you work 6 days a week (scheduled 5 days, but have to pick up additional shifts in order to pay the bills.)
