    I worked at Target full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible, good hrs, nice employees.

    Cons

    Always asking to cover, doing something by your self, no reliable schedule/non fixed schedule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on getting a set schedule for some of you team members, and let them know you can do some of the work we do (we like to see the management get their hands dirty so to speak a little bit.)

    Some challenges I had was multitasking doing different things at once but then I ended up mastering it and everything worked out

    Pros

    Great amount of responsibility out of college for the corporate level roles.

    Cons

    They struggle with fostering a diverse and inclusive culture. Everyone is coached to the same mold.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward actions and results, not just great communicators. Try to recruit outside of the midwest for more diversity of thought.

    I have been working at Target full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Provide quality leadership training but not exceptional. They try to create an open, fast, fun, and friendly atmosphere. The effort is appreciated when recognizing team members . Management for the most part works every other weekend which is rare is retail.

    Cons

    Long hours and sometimes overworked. Schedule seems to be constantly changing with the wind. Family/work balance is tough especially around the holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become more personable with entire team versus just with ETL's

    Pros

    Lots of incentives and perks such as parties and lunches for employees. Lots of opportunities to earn extra rewards for selling red cards and such.

    Cons

    If I had to say anything bad it would be not enough hours.
