    I worked at Target full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    good benefits, pto, health and dental

    Cons

    weekend work, down your throat micro-manage bosses

    Advice to Management

    You preach far and consistent but are far far from. If you don't get along with a boss or peer, you will be forced out.
