    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Lots of vacation
    -Competitive salary
    -Social work environment
    -Great health insurance, cheap dental and vision as well

    Cons

    -Long hours, you are scheduled 10 hours a day and often work more

    -Work life balance is dependent upon store performance and your STL

    The days are too long, work life balance would be much better with 8 hour days, where an ETL stays if they have too as opposed to working ten minimum
