I have been working at Target full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Free food
Employee engaging activities
Good for women planning on having family
Lots of training- Importance given to training

Cons

No much growth unless you are unmarried/ boss's favorite
Caster system: hate the leader follower system.. A manager cannot be a leader always nor can a leader always be your reporting manager!
No privacy at work.. Manager keeps intruding in what you do
Salary is a joke here. Junior pay grades get paid more than you!

Advice to Management

Stop this leadership approach.. Treat team members with respect no matter what paygrade they are from

    I have been working at Target part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    FAST AND FRIENDLY. Great team spirit promoted and lots of recognition for people, doing their jobs.
    I am most impressed at the hiring demographics, I believe that nearly every age (by decade) is represented, which is fantastic to see a company have that knid of hiring practice.

    Cons

    Early days still, but I found the proposed trainig for my position and the actual training that was done were not the same, and the quaility was not there. I primarily through my own curisoity to learn taught myself how to use the equipment required in my area and trouble shooted many issues through trail and error. The theory based training on the compouter is very dry and without ensuring a test of your knowledge it is very hard to believe all staff read the required training material. It would better if the reading was accompained with actual practical hands on training.
    Pay and hours have been disappointing.
