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

    Pros

    The best part of working at target is that you can change your shifts with other team members.

    Cons

    Apparently the company is not doing very well because since I start working here, they're always cutting hours, they are always trying to spend the less possible in the team members.

    Advice to Management

    If the company is not doing well you should said something and not pretend that everything is ok and just cut hours from us, the worse part of that is that we have to do the job of 2 or 3 people.

    Pros

    You can advance all the way to an ETL position without a college degree to earn a 50k+ salary. It can be a very nice work environment where you can enjoy going to work.

    Cons

    People can get away with only partially doing their job with out getting in trouble for their actions and puts more stress on the other teams in the store. can be stressful at times it is retail after all.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example and make sure you are doing things properly and teaching the new people how to do it the right way so the trend continues.

    Pros

    The benifits and pay are competitive. Leadership team have the flexibility to put there on personal touches on All projects which is great if you are a hands on leader. Trying for upper leadership team is okay and sufficient

    Expect long hours and terrible work life balance. The environment is fast paced and high stress in upper management but with everything that can be changed with trading and development of your personal team

    I worked at Target full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is potential to move up if you work hard. You can get extra hours if you show interest by working hard and being a team player. They recognize your effort although it can get annoying to hear recognition over the walkie for basic jobs while others might not get recognized for more difficult jobs. Managers are not allowed to bother you while you are on lunch break.

    Cons

    Hours can be harsh depending on your specific job (really early for flow and backroom team, late for closing crew). Benefits don't kick in until after 6 months.

    Promote experienced TMs to be ETLs, not just 4 year college grads.
