    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 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of upward mobility
    Competitive compensation
    Perfect for single or no kids!

    Cons

    Long work days
    Minimal time off
    Schedule is on the more difficult side of retail

    Very difficult to balance schedule as a mother of small children, having to solo parent regularly, led to me to find a position with a more consistent schedule at a different company.

    Advice to Management

    Some paperwork was redundant... Have heard things have trimmed up a lot.
