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

    Pros

    You sometimes would work with others as a team to get certain tasks done, such as shipping. Otherwise you pretty much got everything done on your own or asked for help if you needed it from managers, or other coworkers.

    Cons

    Overhired, and if you had nothing to do you would sit around or help in other areas of the store.

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

    Pros

    Team focused - The team leads made sure we worked together in a positive way
    Great atmosphere - We weren't in the view of the customers so we were kind of "free" to do what we wanna do and say
    Goal focused - At the end of the day we had a goal to meet a score for certain things

    Cons

    Long days - Some days it just felt foooreeverr
    Unrealistic goals - On holidays the expected amount of things we had to do was just unrealistic even for our experience employees

    Pros

    Great environment, good breaks, good discounts, helpful employees (hopefully)

    Target is usually pretty busy and the hours can be demanding considering they open at 7AM and close at 11 or midnight.

    Continue to lead by example and be approachable.

    Pros

    Benefit package and merch discounts are a big plus

    Cons

    The actual VM store position is mostly stock and freight. Very little “visual merchandising” at all. The position responsibilities are all over the board and apparently subjective store to store. The store I trained in had a completely different role for their VM than my store. No real chance to improve the look, style of the store, regardless of the job description. I never would have interviewed for it, had I known what the job actually was. Management not interested in ideas, concerns or suggestions.

    Advice to Management

    Define this job properly. There is great opportunity in your stores for quality presentations and basic design vision... but not if your VM is cutting freight all day.
