    Pros

    There's a place in our hearts and I know that it is love.

    Cons

    The pay is decent. 15.00/hr would be almost out of poverty.

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

    Pros

    -Lots of vacation
    -Competitive salary
    -Social work environment
    -Great health insurance, cheap dental and vision as well

    Cons

    -Long hours, you are scheduled 10 hours a day and often work more
    -No vacation during peak shopping season (nature of the beast)
    -Work life balance is dependent upon store performance and your STL

    Advice to Management

    The days are too long, work life balance would be much better with 8 hour days, where an ETL stays if they have too as opposed to working ten minimum

    Pros

    Only employee discount.
    You're not there all day

    Cons

    Loss of energy, work every holiday except easter and Christmas, if you are younger than 20 then they dont care about your well-being no matter how hard you work

    Advice to Management

    Stop having favorites sometimes people can't take stress and may become suicidal

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

    Pros

    As a team leader you get every other weekend off. If you are able to select your GSAs (managers just below you) you are able to have a good supporting team to help you mange the front end of the store. You are given full time status, which comes with earned sick, personal, and vacation time.

    Cons

    For the store I manage, not a high volume store, I am in charge of about 30 team members including the GSA team. For the task of managing 30 team members, developing them, training them, keeping guests happy, solving issues, setting planograms, and helping the store to reach both financial goals and red card goals, I am grossly underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    To the corporate office directly, they need to pay their employees better. While Target has increased the minimum staring wage to 10 dollars an hour, at no point did they give management an increase in pay. Many managers make just a few dollars more an hour than the cashiers.

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

    Pros

    Friendly environment to work in/at.

    Cons

    Target only had part time positions but would try to make employees work full time duties cramped into part time hours.

    Advice to Management

    If your company has employees that wants to work, allow them to work. Don't complain how the company doesn't have the hours but try to rush the employees to work full time duties into part time hours.
