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

    Pros

    Great atmosphere

    Fast paced and partly challenging
    Room for advancement not only in your area but all around the store

    Cons

    Usually under staffed on the weekends due to college kids taking off. Work most if not all weekends but can be managed to every other

    Advice to Management

    I would say schedule more help on the weekend days. Have a rotation schedule work one weekend then off the next just to keep moral and motivation high.

    Sometimes the management isn't as helpful as they could be.

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

    Pros

    The employee discount, the organized logistics process from truck to floor, overnight management was team oriented that bought lunches during peak season, and some of my co workers

    Cons

    Going from an ideal overnight schedule (10p-6a) to a not so ideal schedule starting at 4am to 8am. Not being able to transfer.

    Advice to Management

    I think the management was very supportive and functioned well overnights. They would help and do the dirty work just as much as any employee. They showed great team work and leadership.

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

    Pros

    The team atmosphere is outstanding. Upper in-store management is strong and well coordinated for the most part. Very team oriented and friendly experience.

    Cons

    The constant change in schedules and inattentiveness on behalf of team leads is a hassle. Team leadership is poor. It is not the responsibility of "regular team members" to manage others of same status. Team leads must take on the full responsibilities of their roles in store.

    Advice to Management

    Keep people on task and responsible. Too many times I witnessed upper management slack off on their duties.

    Pros

    Great people to work with and many fun events wrapped into every week make this job fun.

    Cons

    I'd trade free peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, hamburgers, hotdogs, cake for better pay in a heartbeat.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay for good workers.
