    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.
