    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

    Pros

    Great environment, awesome way to learn about management, great mentors. There are great workshops and conferences.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be a bit difficult. It'd be great if they gave an extra day off. Payroll can be difficult to manage.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing the one on one statuses. They are great and really helpful for the rest of the team. Keep it up

    Pros

    Flexibility with scheduling. Good work/life balance. Above average pay.

    Cons

    Experience prior to Target doesn't matter without a 4 yr. Degree. Often recruit graduates from college with no retail experience that you ..in a lower level position have to train. 0 opportunity for advancement without degree.

    Advice to Management

    Seek out talent...develop and promote that talent. Recognize hard work and experience.
