    I worked at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Going in at twenty I didn’t expect to work at Target for an extended period of time. What followed were the four best years of my professional career. You not only get to work with a wonderful team, but you get the chance to prove yourself. A lot of promotions are done in-house.

    Cons

    There is only one true con that I can think of, and that is none other than the terrible red and khaki color combination.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t forget to take care of your team.

    I have been working at Target part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people I work with, I love!

    Cons

    Management doesn’t know what goes on around the store, extra tasks are dropped in my lap because they don’t think we have enough to do.

    Advice to Management

    Stick your toes in the water in other areas of the store. Spend a few hours at Guest Services, Soft Lines; do a few flex orders. When you know what’s actually going on around the store you will be able to problem solve in a more efficient way. Guess work will get you nowhere, and get you lots of angry team members.
