    Pros

    Friendly staff and Team Leaders, Fast paced environment, Flexible hours.

    Cons

    During slow times of the year (Non-holiday times) hours can be cut. Short amount of time, especially during night shifts, to get everything done with an overwhelming amount to finish.

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

    Pros

    I was my first managerial role in the retail industry while in college. They were able to work with my school schedule, while still having me lead many store initiatives. I was able to gain knowledge in many aspects of retail, ranging from sales, loyalty programs, merchandising, charitable initiatives, online fulfillment, and shipment.

    Cons

    For working a retail schedule (nights, weekends, holidays), there were no benefits for part time sales leads even though I worked 40 hours each week.

    Pros

    Good people, good teams, great benefits. Lots of training and development opportunities.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work life balance is incredible, everybody on the team is passionate about their work, there are a lot of opportunities for career growth and gaining new skills. I love being able to work with cutting edge technologies. Target also is great with gender diversity which helped me make my decision. Everybody is very friendly, there is good culture here.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be challenging to get a new idea built. But that's only because of the momentum we already have with our current projects.

    Advice to Management

    The one downside is I feel not many people know Target as a great place for tech.

    I worked at Target (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart people. Opportunity to spread your wings and try new things. Once you have built your network and understand how to get things done, there are many opportunities for success and growth.

    Cons

    Not unexpected at a large org: things take time. You'll need to invest in your internal network especially early; i.e. you'll need to understand who to partner with to get things done. Not really a "con", just a fact of life that you should be ready for.
