    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

    I loved interacting with guests on the phone, I learned how to transfer calls and maintain a call board with multiple calls at a time, multitask more quickly, I had responsibilities such as signing in and out equipment, taking messages and calls for HR and management, using walkie talkies to retrieve and put items on hold for guests.

    Cons

    Management was unprofessional and made it difficult to stay.

    I worked at Target part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, ability to cross-train, there's a Target near everyone's location so commuting and transferring locations are easier than a lot of companies.

    Cons

    Apathetic management, separation between regular employees and management, pay does not measure up to the stress, pace, and general burden working at Target places on the body.

    Advice to Management

    Create a rapport with every employee and understand what every worker's needs and expectations are. Stop placing unreachable goals on employees because in the inevitable event that one does not achieve them there creates a culture of disappointment
