    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 a year)

    Pros

    Get to earn an understanding of retail and be a focus department with a higher learning curve.

    Cons

    Often undervalued. Also due to short staffing, you get assigned to a different department and get yelled at for not having been able to do your original dept goals.

    Advice to Management

    Leave electronics tms in electronics. There is enough to do there without being made to do toys or seasonal departments.

    Pros

    HR brings food for staff
    Friendly co workers
    They give you an hour and 15 minutes worth of break time if you work 6+ hours

    Cons

    Training could be more thorough. They basically just had me read a pamphlet and then threw me onto the register.

    Advice to Management

    None that I can think of.

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

    Pros

    The freedom of appearance and they choose to hire friendly people, thus friendly staff. They don't provide uniforms so you can basically wear whatever red you want! Supervisors in the Front End are usually very kind. You WILL make friends.

    Cons

    certain stores can control appearance more than other stores, they change the system far too much for anyone to keep up with changes, I was used for supervisory for "training" and never paid for it and never was promoted. If you do manage to grow in this company your pay rate won't increase enough for it to be worth the work!

    Advice to Management

    Human Resources shouldn't be intimidating right?

    Pros

    People are truly passionate about what they do here. When someone calls you a team memeber they mean it, not only in the willingness to hear ideas, but in the way they treat you day to day.

    Cons

    It’s retail so it is difficult to celebrate holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Keep modernizing, not just your operations, but your training, benefits, everything!
