    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 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.

    I have been working at Target full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The Guests are wonderful. We have many regulars that we've built wonderful relationships with. Every single person I work with is fantastic and respectful.

    Cons

    Not many cons at all as of yet. Unless you consider working a lot of hours during the Holiday season a con, but I consider it a blessing.

    Advice to Management

    I was hired as a GSA (Assistant Manager to some) and advanced to a GSTL (Manager to others) is less than 5 months. So advancement can be quick if you work hard and show potential.

    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    Pretty easy to learn, consistent hours, able to pick up more

    Cons

    If you are hired as a seasonal there is little opportunity to be hired permanently. (Even though they give hope during your time there)

    Fair pay, great staff and management. Target was my first real job and made some lasting friendships and learned a lot
