    Pros

    Friendly staff and Team Leaders, Fast paced environment, Flexible hours.

    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 worked at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits including health, dental, vision, 401k match, time off, tuition reimbursement, etc. Take full advantage if you can! Really committed to career growth and development. Base salary and bonus is also extremely competitive for the industry.

    Cons

    You give up weekends, holidays, and put in long hours. They say it’s 10 hour days, but that’s a good day! Very little opportunity to make vacation plans or travel during any peak seasons so the huge amount of vacation you build up is worthless.

    Pros

    the pay is great for the amount of work you do, management is supportive, and it is a very team-focused environment.

    I worked at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fairly good compensation, pockets of really great leaders and teams. Decent work-life balance.

    Cons

    Extremely behind on systems and technology, not moving fast enough to catch up with competitors.

    Advice to Management

    I found out that my direct report (male, did not have superior technical/analytical/business skills) was making $10k more than me, his boss. Yet, the hiring manager shot me down when I tried to negotiate my initial salary. This tells me that hiring managers have far too much discretion and there should be systems in place to achieve better pay equity between men and women.

    Micromanaging is how everything is done and you can’t have a life outside and once you do one thing not perfect to them you are on the bad list forever

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone equally with workload and professionalism
