    Pros

    Gain some extra experience to put on your resume. The company does pay higher than some others across the board.

    Cons

    Too many to label, but some great ones would be lack of creativity, it's hard to actually do your job for lack of resources and too many unnecessary inputs which makes it hard to get anything done.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your management team to lead! It's in fact what you hired them to do

    Strong work life balance, fair compensation, and company is fair in promoting those that do the work.

    Cons

    Management can be shaky depending on what store you’re in.

    Advice to Management

    HQ is dropping down lots of information and new expectations. Make sure you analyze what is realistic for you team and set expectations as such. Don’t get lost in the numbers and lose the people.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay, decent benefits, they gave me (as asset protection) a guaranteed 40 hour schedule every week.

    Cons

    The majority of the staff in the store was very lazy and there was little to no accountability or oversight. Management was extremely racist and hostile towards the white staff members and took every opportunity to be as obvious and as loud about it as possible. They used a variety of less than legal means to push out hard-working employees and replace them with even lazier, entitled friends and family members. I personally witnessed higher end executive store leads threaten white team members with physical violence.

    Advice to Management

    Investigate and fix your Edgewood store in Atlanta. There are some severely illegal activities going on.
