    I have been working at Target full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great management experience and training. Working here has shown me how to be an effective leader. Benefits are decent, they match 5% to my 401k and I get 10% off of everything. The team that I work with makes the job great. Target hires, (and retains) quality employees.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be a challenge at times. Obviously because it's retail you work EVERY holiday. Communication has been a struggle of my store.

    I have been working at Target as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Target has great benefits and growth opportunities. The environment is fast pace but fun and friendly. I have only been with the company for a short amount of time but have enjoyed it.

    Cons

    Lots of training and learning of the target culture. They want you to be a part of the big team. Also lots of personality tests to get hired.

    Pros

    Friendly leadership and cool coworkers. Good pay and I learned a lot here, but left to expand my career elsewhere.

    Cons

    It was hard to get a raise when I asked for one. I eventually did, but not as much as I would have liked to receive.

    Pros

    Great company to work for if you are never looking to move up. Very flexible with schedules and great benefits.

    Cons

    If you are trying to climb the ladder it is best to start from the top. They will use and abuse you (not physically) but they will get all they can from you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees more. STL need to spend more time on the floor actually doing work instead of in their offices.
