    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.

    Pros

    being able to stack discounts is nice. at times theres snacks in the break room. the focus on a good work-life balance is really nice

    Cons

    its a store, your not going to make much, even after 5 years. if you get dealt a bad hand, and get a crappy team lead, your time is going to be a bit worst than others

    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.
