I worked at Target full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

The hard work can really be worth it. Just keep a positive attitude. They care about training. If you want to move up with the company, you can do so. The benefits were great.

Cons

caution: your store experience will likely be different based on your location
the store manager and how he/she leads truly makes a difference, as well as your District Manager
expect payroll cuts, so you will work hard
this is the norm in any retail environment these days

Advice to Management

Get some of your senior executives to work in a store, especially on a Sunday morning.
Sometimes you shoot yourself in the foot by cutting payroll too much. If you had more salesfloor team members, they could assist guests more and increase sales. If not, the endcaps at every store could be full and your instocks levels always top notch. That alone would increase sales and pay for itself.
Also the AP Executive needs to be focused on just Assets Protection in order to keep your shrink low.
Continue to learn the food business. There is too much revenue lost there as well.
