    I worked at Target full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Going in at twenty I didn’t expect to work at Target for an extended period of time. What followed were the four best years of my professional career. You not only get to work with a wonderful team, but you get the chance to prove yourself. A lot of promotions are done in-house.

    Cons

    There is only one true con that I can think of, and that is none other than the terrible red and khaki color combination.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t forget to take care of your team.

    Great environment, loved the people I worked with, has a great training program, has a great internal growth.

    I worked at Target full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Learning various skills, tech, and the operations of different departments. If you work hard, you'll be recognized and upper management will try to push you to take the next step and become team lead (or whichever title is above you at that point in time). If you're there long enough, you'll get access to healthcare and such. Decent chance you'll develop close relationships with those that you work with directly or often.

    Cons

    Only a 10% discount that never increases. To get the healthcare benefits, the criteria is kind of absurd, you had to be there at least a year AND work a minimum of 1000 hours (or something like that). While you will be recognized for your work if you're giving it your all, your manager will probably expect that from you every single day and you'll overwork yourself to hit some impossible goal. Target only cares about...

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking out for only yourself. It's easy to say that "you were there" or "we're all part of the team", but it's another to actually put in work and effort. Senior management (ETL and above) is salaried and there are rumors that they got bonuses based on metrics they pushed on you (gotta get those red cards), which you never saw part of.
