    Pros

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

    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.

    Pros

    Started my career here. There are plenty of great mentors and the team atmosphere is great. I have been able to work on some big projects and make an impact. Great work life balance.

    Cons

    New leadership at the top in not exactly the Target I started my career with in terms of caring for employees as much. I believe the company is headed in the right direction but there are still plenty of areas where a clearer picture forward needs to be created by leadership. It can leave the teams out to dry.
