    I worked at Target full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They recognize talent and promote from within. I went from cart pusher, to manager while working in just about every department of the store. They listen and will put you where you want to be if you are a good employee. Also, very customer service oriented.

    Cons

    It is retail, so nights, weekends and holidays are required.

    Advice to Management

    I liked all of my managers, so keep doing what you're doing.

    Great pay and not to hard of work

    Benefits aren’t the greatest and Management is mainly kids straight out of college because it’s easier for them to become managers then current team members who have experience

    Advice to Management

    Stop making it harder for current employees to become part of the management team then people straight out of college with no experience

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

    Pros

    Some type of loyalty. Can get raises if you continue to do good every year,

    Cons

    Sometimes not as understanding when other things cone up. It is bestto use the swap board or let them know beforehand if you can't make it to a shift, So they can call someone. Or BETTER: Have someone take your shift for you and write it on the swap board and show it to the supervisor so she/he will have a better chance of approving it.
