    I have been working at Target full-time

    Pros

    Opportunities to lead large teams on a daily basis to complete goals that move the store forward.

    Cons

    Bottlenecked when it comes to success. Target treats their employees like they are part of a game. They reduce headcount and expect you to pick up others work centers while maintaining the same salary.

    Focus is not on operations, which is why half the time you walk into a store the shelves are empty.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on operations, fill the store and then focus on sales.
