    I worked at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great for a new college grad and decent pay
    Most peers are great to work with
    Good leadership development
    Decent training program

    Cons

    No work life balance, expect to work 60+ hours and 6 days a week. You will be called/texted on your one off day and on your weekends. I would wake up each morning to be at work at 7am and would leave around 6 or 7pm each day if I was on a day shift. If working a closing shift expect to work 2pm-midnight and have to be in the next day at 7am. As an HR one would think I was in an office working on what requires the store to remain compliant, but because I had a demanding manager I was required to spend most of my time on the salesfloor folding clothes and assisting guests. Expect to be given very critical feedback from your peers and manager on a constant basis. Because you are exhausted and over worked it becomes hard to spruce up the traditional red and khaki that even managers are required to wear. My manager told me on my birthday that I needed to look happier and dress better, after I worked a 17 hour overnight shift.

    Advice to Management

    Quit cutting payroll, this directly relates to the high turnover of your ETLs.

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

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Strong commitment to developing leaders and teamwork. Work life balance is pretty good for retail. Company has a strong culture of recognition for team. Great commitment to giving back to the community.

    Cons

    Opportunities for advancement not always performance based. Strong commitment to recruiting new college graduates makes it harder for experienced retail managers to move up within company. Underperforming upper management is moved out very slowly.
