    I have been working at Target full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good health benefits, 5 weeks paid vacation, 401k that matches up to 5%.

    Cons

    Repetitive Nature. The higher position you have, the more politics it is. It is no longer who is the better candidate with proven results, but who district and group leadership likes best. They would rather want someone who can talk the game, but not walk the walk. ETL-AP's are paid lower than other ETL's in the building.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Target full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I have made some good friends.

    Cons

    With all the current changes that continue to happen one person is expected to do the work of four on less hours than before. If you dont complete it you get written up. Your not allowed to be sick or need time off.
