    I worked at Target full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You learn a lot of how to be an effective leader and create relationships with many different individuals. It presents the opportunity to build and run a business and pushes you to critically think to resolve issues every day. When you have a great day and accomplish great things, it's the best feeling to share with your team.

    Cons

    At least in my Group, there was a lot of "politics". If you were a "yes" person and were well liked, you would get promoted or receive special treatment. If you were someone who was honest and provided feedback, then be prepared to be targeted by senior leadership. There is definitely no work life balance, and there's this unspoken shame you receive from leaders when you are sick, call off, or have to attend to personal matters (I have even witnessed leadership for mocking others for attending a funeral). Further more, there is such a pressure to be number one and to make things look perfect. With that, I witnessed so many leaders do unethical things (timeclock fraud, negligent conduct, failure of safe and secure procedures, retaliation, abuse of power, bullying/harassment) all for the sake of looking good to senior leadership. When senior leadership was informed and provided evidence of these actions, they often would not investigate and turn the other way allowing the behaviors to continue.

    I have been working at Target part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good HR leaders, Work hard enough and HR might consider you for a team lead position (At the start of 2020 I was moved to Starbucks because they were impressed by my work as a seasonal fulfillment employee but needed more baristas with experience. At my location [Bloomfield Hills, MI] they really care that you are in the best position for both the store and yourself). Nice coworkers for the most part

    Cons

    Work conflicts sometimes not accommodated (seasonal workers should know their schedule conflicts are not taken into consideration). Because there are so many employees you may often find yourself lacking information/updates, so just try to ask questions to stay in the know.
