    I worked at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Target has a really fast, fun, and friendly, culture which is mostly driven by its strong employment branding. Target also allowed for flexible scheduling and 3 weeks of vacation which was nice.

    Cons

    Working in a struggling market is never easy. Seemed to be a lack of clear strategic vision from the 'higher ups' and it seemed like we were always having to re-invent the wheel, instead of sticking to fundamentals.

    Advice to Management

    Sky high expectations from mostly low performing employees is never a recipe for success. Field Leadership often seemed very out of touch with the realities of working in and running a store. Heavy politics always at play.
