    I worked at Target full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Team is like a family environment, you can build many relationship. Salary was good with opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    Schedule you have to be flexible but there is a rotation. Politics, you have to be the favorite for promotions and I watched many people get overlooked due to others being the pick. Inconsistent engagement from upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Performance should be the leading decision in promotions to the next level STL/ DTL. Development is not where it use to be and we are failing New Executives without experience.
