    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Early Morning shift works well if your a student.

    Cons

    Management could be better, they tend to be condescending. Do not do if your back gets sore real easily. Most things are not heavy on they're own but the repetition can wear you out.

    Pros

    Management has been helpful with any problems that come up. My coworkers are great overall. They are pretty flexible with my school schedule.

    Cons

    Management fails to communicate with me fairly often which can be frustrating. Hours and scheduling can be inconsistent at times.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to better communicate its intentions to team members. Whether it be a change in scheduling or a change of work center, all details should be discussed.
