    I worked at Target full-time (More than 3 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.

    I worked at Target full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Salary, bonuses, discounts. Meeting some amazing people while working for the company and creating a very strong network across stores and departments that has continued since leaving the company

    Cons

    Working up to 80 hours a week (because you’re on salary) without any gratitude from corporate management. Being expected to be on-call 24/7 and being told that you’re not doing enough even when you work harder and longer than all your peers

    Advice to Management

    Be nice to your employees, it goes a long way.

    I worked at Target as an intern

    Pros

    Great experience with managing a large team
    You really learn the in's and out's of retail

    Cons

    -It's a bit hard to balance the work/life balance initially. Most of my shifts started at 6, which wasn't a problem, but I definitely spent a lot more of my summer there than I anticipated
    - Being an intern, it puts you in an almost limbo between the executives and the regular team members. You have the responsibilities of an exec, but not necessarily the power. This caused a lot of confusion.

    Pros

    They work on your personal development and making great leaders. They foster an inclusive culture and have good routines around team building

    Cons

    There really isn't any cons to Target. Retail is a stressful environment and Target does a great job of trying to make it less stressful
