    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.

    Culture, appreciation, peers. Doing community events with the team and volunteer work was fun. Ability to develop and advance and develop others to do the same.

    Expected to meet unrealistic goals with little to no resources.
    Benefits weren’t the greatest.
    Annual reviews and bonus’ weren’t the best either.

    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.

    I worked at Target (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good discount, can learn valuable skills, flexible hours

    Cons

    Management acts like you are nothing, their HR does absolutely nothing..both on a store level and corporate level. Instead of helping their employees the instead put blame on the employee right away and treat the employee like they are a joke. H

    Advice to Management

    Take HR issues seriously, especially on a corporate level.
