I worked at Target full-time

Pros

They really take an interest in your personal development, developing your business acumen and your leadership style.
I enjoyed rolling out new initiatives in the store, it really aided in my development.
I loved the flexibility to make it right for a guest, made dealing with difficult situations much easier.
My STL really valued work/life balance, which was one of my concerns taking a management role in retail.

Cons

Depending on the size of your store, the amount of payroll to spend could be barely enough to scrape by.
Most of the bad parts of working at Target are the same as any other retail company (angry guests, hectic holidays, working weekends)

Advice to Management

Please allocate more payroll dollars to smaller stores, it would improve the brand of the store and keep the Team Members happy.

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

    Pros

    They promote from within, have good benefits, and flexible hours. I would suggest to a friend.

    Cons

    the fastest way to rise in target is through networking. Not hard work. Seasoned employees aren't valued as much as they should be.

    Advice to Management

    They should value seasoned employees more and make promotions about how hard people work not who their friends are.
