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

    Pros

    This job was a decent college job. Somewhat flexible hours and scheduling with a decent base pay.

    Cons

    Horrible management that insisted on making every day more horrible than the last. They greatly overwork their team members.

    Advice to Management

    I highly recommend that you all do a better job of hiring managers and leaders. Try looking within store for more qualified individuals that are people friendly and represent the face of the company better.

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

    Pros

    This is the only retailer I've worked with to give you every other weekend off as a manager. For the most part, when you're off the clock you're left alone. During LOD shifts you get to own the business without much interference.

    Cons

    Too much politics at the store level, reminds me of high school; everyone has their own agenda. Hours can be difficult sometimes when you have multiple closes per week. Sr. Team Leaders close more than any other leadership position in the store.

    Advice to Management

    Proactively recruit Sr. Team Leaders to ETL positions regardless of degree status.

    Pros

    Fun Environment and Fast Paced. Constant, consistent work.

    Cons

    Outstanding work is not recognized

    Advice to Management

    Please increase the wages and bonuses for employees who work harder than others, and also get your Estimated Finish Times below the hours expected it to take.
