    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
