I worked at Target full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Although the starting salary isn't great for a recent grad (45,000 is generally the offer straight out of college in my area), intelligence, ambition and hard work are rewarded with very fast career and financial advancement.

Cons

Rather ruthless treatment of employees. Those who don't perform are pushed out quickly, and if they work for you you'd better be ready to do the pushing.

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

    Pros

    Young company
    Downtown Minneapolis location is excellent for food, entertainment, gyms, socializing, shopping, etc.
    Vacation time is always allowed to be taken.

    Cons

    Your development and ability to succeed almost solely lies in your manager. I've experienced this distinctly in both roles I've had. If your manager doesn't have time to help with your development it's extremely difficult to move out of a non-exempt (hourly) position.

    If you're not living and breathing the culture it's noticed and will work against you. Must sign on 100%.

    Workload and expectations are extremely high and often unachievable.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for if you enjoy the retail market. Like many retailers it can include long hours based off of the season, but they treat their employees well. Have great communication throughout the senior leadership.

    Cons

    Can sometimes be difficult to complete some required tasks based off of the payroll hours allotted to the store.
