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

    Pros

    Lots of room for growth. Set your sights on where you want to go and you can get there. The thing here is to learn and grow, taking the bull by the horns for yourself, but allow room for peer community so that you can benefit from your peers.

    Cons

    None. The company definitely has some setbacks, but is making changes and improvements on ongoing basis. Overall a great experience.

    Advice to Management

    Go in, determined that you will execute on your job expectations. And have a clear understanding of what those are.

    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    I loved working at Target!! Everyone was always very friendly and I got along very well with my coworkers. Great environment for a first job.

    Cons

    I was underage when I began working there so I was not able to work past 9:45 pm, hence low hours.

    Advice to Management

    Cut slack with the red cards.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company with great values and vision for the future, relatively flexible scheduling at store level

    Cons

    Management at store level is abysmal, inconsistent enforcement of Target policies, inconsistent availability of upward mobility

    Advice to Management

    Only scheduling people 20 hours a week is a great way to hire clueless people who want a quick buck instead of people who are willing to invest their energy into making Target a better place in exchange for access to benefits
