    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Target is really making some great improvements right now. The work is hard, but it's innovative and exciting. It's nice to be part of a successful transformation.

    Cons

    With all of the transformation, there is a little uncertainty and an increased workload. The grey and the unknown can be a little scary, but things are clearly moving in the right direction.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be as transparent and positive as possible. It is a great way to keep teams motivated and excited about the current direction of the company!

    I worked at Target full-time

    Pros

    Your salary goes right back into the place you work at.. it's amazing! Not only do you spend it back from where it came, but you can finally afford that pack of gum you've been eyeing for the past 365 days.

    Cons

    You will love every day of your life! People will want to know everything you do, right down to why you breathe in general, so it makes you feel welcome.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you were born to do! Give advice like there is no tomorrow. People do appreciate your opinions, especially on their personality and appearance. Also, make sure you don't forget that employees are expendable!!

    Pros

    Pays very well for management. The work was fun and challenging. There was always something new.

    Cons

    Managing unprofessional college kids or adults with the same mentality. Working long hours, nights, weekends and holidays

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job retaining quality workers not just those that look good and/ or kiss up to the store manager.

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

    Pros

    They are great with working with schedules and working with time requested off. They push a really positive atmosphere and want to get to work with you one on one to improve anything needed.

    Cons

    Some stores have rules but they don't follow them as much as others, which can lead to conflicts within the store and between team members. There also isn't much organization, and not enough time and effort into keeping things organized and clean.

    Pros

    Better than any other position at Target. You have way more freedom to do what you want and go where you want. (Not confined to one register in a 2 by 2 space) Also you get paid more. Finally guests treat you much better as they actually respect you input and help.

    Cons

    You must have good electronics knowledge in order to help guests

    HR doesn't really seem to involved.

    Advice to Management
