    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.

    Pros

    Great culture for a retail environment. The pay is also great for retail. Good first job out of school. Great training is provided as well.

    Cons

    You will work yourself to death. Long hours 10 plus a day. And you will work two weekends each month. The only day the you will have off os for Christmas

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

    Pros

    They work around your schedules, work load is light around Christmas time.

    Cons

    Workers always get caught up in gossip, you'll go from 34 hours to 18 in a week wondering how you're going to pay your bills, LODs are a pack and badmouth employees right in front of their face, there's no room for improvement, you can't tell the LODs anything negative about any employees that have been been there for more than a year or else they get protective about them (even though they're doing their work wrong), you have to remind them that you requested days off or else they'll ignore it.

    Advice to Management

    Work on everything. Literally everything that your stores are doing right now need to be fixed.
