    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.

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

    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.

    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.
