    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.

    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 (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Target is a great first job where you can make decent money while working in a team.
    -everyone is friendly and willing to help out
    -group huddles to talk about achievements and new sales.
    -great pay
    -lenient late policy
    -if you work till close, you will feel safe because everyone leaves at once.

    Cons

    -Have to be constantly on your feet
    - good summer job, but no room for advancement
    -if you shift ends at closing time, you will be there another hour to clean up your zone.

    Advice to Management

    -be upfront about closing shifts and try not to schedule an opening shift the very next day.

    I worked at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits including health, dental, vision, 401k match, time off, tuition reimbursement, etc. Take full advantage if you can! Really committed to career growth and development. Base salary and bonus is also extremely competitive for the industry.

    Cons

    You give up weekends, holidays, and put in long hours. They say it’s 10 hour days, but that’s a good day! Very little opportunity to make vacation plans or travel during any peak seasons so the huge amount of vacation you build up is worthless.

    I worked at Target full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, ok benefits, great team minus the bosses

    Cons

    Micromanaging is how everything is done and you can’t have a life outside and once you do one thing not perfect to them you are on the bad list forever

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone equally with workload and professionalism
