    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Target had one of the highest paying, highest responsibility jobs to offer out of all of the companies I looked at when graduating college. I have done two different roles and learned so much personally and professionally in both. I have received two large pay increases and a small annual increase in my 3 years with the company. I got to lead a team of 60 when I was barely 21 years old which was scary but was the type of role I was looking for.

    Cons

    Be ready to get your hands dirty and be on your feet for quite a bit of your day. Target does not have all of the glitz and glam of other business world employers so that is just something to prepare for. Being a retailer, ETLs work on an every other weekend rotation, Thanksgiving night, and Christmas Eve.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Weekends off, the ability to stay within a visual role instead of being pulled in other directions.

    Cons

    Guests often shop the store hard so it is difficult to maintain a brand store especially from a visual perspective.

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

    Pros

    10% employee discount and opportunity to do different roles/flexibility
    Paid 15-minute breaks are enforced

    Cons

    Micro management
    Varying schedules - Closing/Opening
    Fitting room can be a nightmare with folding, sorting, etc. - There is a lot of pressure to keep it clear and hard to balance while also being the telephone operator.

    Advice to Management

    To not be as micromanage-like. View people as valuable rather than temporary workers.

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

    Pros

    Changing availability is never a problem, the managers are really approachable and I have never been denied a request off of work.

    Cons

    It's ineffable. It's hard to put into words.

    Advice to Management

    If there is a team member that you do view as "valuable" and an "asset" then listen to them when they say they are hurting and stop putting them in a situation that hurts them.

    Pros

    Easy to get a job

    Cons

    Treated like a number, low pay, fewer hours than promised, health insurance for only some employees with a year wait.

    Pros

    Pretty fun but very fast paced work and you have to be up and down the whole time.

    Cons

    Only 1 cart attendant per shift wich sucked because when it would get busy you would get behind. Or when you would leave to lunch you would come back and there would be almost no carts.

    Pros

    Great benefits - your benefits start immediately so you don't have to wait the traditional 90 days to have health insurance! Solid training - they really want you to feel comfortable with what you're doing. Good culture - you work with some amazing people.

    Cons

    The work itself sucks, in my opinion. Stocking shelves, opening boxes, ringing up customers, cleaning up messes, helping customers find things, checking up on employees to make sure they're doing their job right....long hours....not my cup of tea. But if you like retail and like that kind of work then go for it.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees' needs and ideas

    Pros

    Flexible hours and friendly employees

    Cons

    Just about everything else: low pay, pushy managers, never ending criticism, huge shift/inconsistency in attitude depending on store and department

    Advice to Management

    Consistency across management levels and stores. Heard from other friends at other stores a vast number of different opinions/stories about managers or what departments people actually enjoyed. The "fake" nature of managers feedback to employees is so overwhelmingly evident it was near impossible to take critique seriously. Stop taking customer service and how managers press it to the extreme: have had 4 customer service jobs and this was above all the most ridiculous (it's common sense customer service...not rocket science). Pressure from senior mgmt. seeps all the way down to store mgmt. and to the bottom of the totem pole (esp. the RedCard)
