I have been working at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

There are some great opportunities to succeed. You'll go far if you're a female, diverse, or pretty...oh, it helps if you have no idea how to do your job too.

Cons

Extreme "Up or Out" culture at every level. Very politcal.

Advice to Management

The C-Level Management needs a reality check of what its like to run a store with the resources they give store management.

    I worked at Target part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lost some weight unloading boxes

    Cons

    Manager thought pulling down a wall of boxes would be faster...spilled/splashed bleach on my face and shirt.

    Advice to Management

    Meh, it's target; keep on keeping on.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, work with school schedules.

    Cons

    No one is full-time except for Team Leaders and above, and they will make sure to keep you below full-time hours. Some weeks had 40 hours, others as low as 5 hours to balance. Impossible to maintain with a family as the shifts can range from 4am to working overnight for a week. Also, the company just cut ALL insurance for part-time employees. Beware, they will make things harder for you.
