    Pros

    Great friends, Great minimum pay, and sometimes a fun job.

    Cons

    Horrible hours and management does not care about employees. If you change availability because your part time and have school they never schedule you again leaving you struggling to pay for college.

    Advice to Management

    Care about employees and what goes on in their life and help them work around it instead of never scheduling them just because they can't work maybe one or two days a week.

    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.
