    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.

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

    Pros

    Always room to grow with the company, open and inclusive culture. Company really dedicates themselves to taking care of their team members.

    Cons

    Leadership development is a hit or miss depending on your next level supervisor. Long hours without compensation. Q4 demands a lot from an individual due to business demands; company forgets individuals have lives and families around this time.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more time at the store level to see real snapshot of day to day operations. Have frequent unannounced visits to not only see the status of the building but to experience real life retail experiences.

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

    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.

    - Easy scheduling
    - Opportunities for growth

    Cons

    - None that I can think of

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible in scheduling
    Very open communication with Team Leads (at least at my store)
    Great first job but not a career.

    Cons

    Hours fluctuate regularly. (Anywhere from 30 to 40 hours during major holidays months to 5 to 15 hours during the rest of the year)
    Cross-training can be difficult to acquire (to compensate for hours lost in your specific department)
    Raises are based on popularity rather than work ethic
    Very little room for promotion

    Advice to Management

    There is a very clear disconnect between TM and ETLs. At the very least ETLs should know the names of their TMs, even if they aren't apart of their team.
