    I have been working at Target full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The team (from team members to executives). Great opportunity to advance. Best schedule in retail. The leadership structure is the best in retail as well!

    Cons

    At the current moment, I cannot think of any cons. I have been with the company for 10 months and have no complaints.

    I worked at Target as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Rotational Internship. Get to know all aspects of store operations, and the pay is competitive ($18 hourly-summer 2018).

    Cons

    If you don't like being on your feet, this is not the job for you. Internship is based on mentor, so if your mentor is in Logistics, your internship will look vastly different to someone whose mentor is in Sales Floor.

    Pros

    You get to manage a large team. You set customer service policy for the store. You consistently have to problem solve in a timely manner. This enhances your ability to think quickly and make sound decisions under pressure. The healthcare plan is great/very affordable. There's an opportunity for an annual bonus. You have the flexibility to alter your schedule to fit the needs of your business. You get a lot of control and autonomy when it comes to decisions within your department.

    Cons

    The expectation is that you work 10 hours, 5 days a week. These shifts become 12-14 shifts on a regular basis. No one forces you to stay that long. But you make yourself work those long shifts to achieve success. This comes from inadequate payroll resources. Target gives you about 80% of the payroll need to succeed. You need to use your skills to make up the difference. In my opinion, 90% would be acceptable. Aside from your assistant managers, the caliber of talent you manage is fairly low. They get paid near minimum wage. You need all your employees to perform at a high level to be successful. It can be very challenging getting your team to that level.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to give opportunities to procure additional payroll. Possibly submitting a plan and explanation for why more resources are needed. I understand that Target is a major corporation that needs to control expenses. I'm firmly behind the direction the company is heading. However, I need adequate resources to execute the vision of the company.

    Pros

    Pay is excellent. The company has strong values and does stick to them. Also, there is a lot of room for growth and promotion.

    Cons

    They will work you like a dog. They say 50-52 hours per week, but often you will work 60-70. Also, if you don't have a strong STL (store manager) then you will receive little to no support from upper management. Further, though there are lots of levels you can promote to, you will have to wait a very long time. Some ETL's wait over twenty years for promotion. They lead you to believe you will have a 1.5 year rotation in each position, but often its much longer.

    Advice to Management

    Support leaders in stores that are failing.
