    I worked at Target full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people. Not too much chance for advancement internally. Environment was great but a lot of false promises.

    Cons

    False promises towards advancement. They seem to choose promotions externally over 90 % of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Look to the people that help get your company where it is for promotional opportunities.

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

    Pros

    It's a big store so there's always a lot to do. You'll never be just standing around, waiting for there to be something to do. Management is pretty good as well, they seem to be all pretty fair. There's also a Starbucks at this location and employees get 10% off, which is nice. You're working with people of different backgrounds and also ages so it never feels clique-y.
    For the holidays, HR usually sets up a nice theme for the employees and they bring in food or snacks for everyone, and Black Friday is almost always catered.
    They post a list for what departments are hiring and there is ALOT of opportunity to cross-train in different departments. Once you know how every department is and you master it, you'll be noticed and can move up as a TL or LOD.
    Scheduling is A+ They are super flexible with your scheduling/hours when you're part-time. If you say you want less, you get less. If you need more, there's a book where people write shifts they don't want and you can pick up as many as you want.
    Target is LGBT-friendly, and also very much into charity and that's always nice.

    Cons

    The work load can be intense, especially when it's busy and your department is understaffed and you're expected to do one thing but Guest Services keep calling you to backup cash. It can be tough to get anything done on the weekends.
    Some of the managers suck... but not all of them.
    You're getting paid minimum wage, maybe a little more if you have more college or education under your belt.

    Advice to Management

    Remember when you had just started and try not to be so harsh on new employees who are still learning the job. Other than that, you're alright.
