    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced team environment, focused on business results. Priorities are centered around getting what customers want to stores. Creative thinking is encouraged and allows us to test different things to achieve results.

    Cons

    Priorities change, there are too many metrics to manage and the focus shifts to different metrics throughout the year. We spend too much time managing metrics and reports versus managing the actual business.

    Advice to Management

    Create a plan to achieve business priorities and work the plan. The vision continues to change making it difficult to achieve results.

    Pros

    The hours are can be flexible and management encourages further education. There are a lot of options for part-time and seasonal work.

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

    Pros

    Target is a large corporation, however it feels like a small group of family members working together toward a common goal. Your bosses care about you and the only limits in your career are the ones you place on yourself.

    Cons

    The hours can be long, and it is retail so your working on holidays and weekends. Your shifts change daily
