    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

    Pros

    Highly collaborative, with emphasis on personal development and cooperation among colleagues. It wasn't a place you could steamroll others just to get results - you needed to bring people along (which could also be a con because it was slower moving)

    Cons

    Very slow to embrace innovation and "fail fast", slower use of deep analytics, and too process oriented. It could also value appearance of results (e.g., roadshows of initiatives) more than the actual results

    Advice to Management

    Embrace innovation more, care more about true results and less about the roadshow or optics of the results, and know which areas of the company need to be more bound to processes and which can be less

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing even remotely critical to say about management. The best retail company in the world! I cherished my time working there and I am hoping to be rehired and promote the great culture and values of Target.

    Cart pushers need music to stay sane.

    Pros

    This is a great first job, or even for people with experience. Pay is great and there's good communication in the team.

    Customers can be rude, but that's with any retail job. Management was very understanding about any situations that arose though!
