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

    Pros

    -pay was good
    -work life balance was there (our team and STL were always communicating, so we all had our fair share of time away)
    -loved my team

    Cons

    -retail hours — enough said
    -politics throughout the company, but it’s inevitable

    Advice to Management

    I loved the experience in management and the opportunities it presented for me to grow as an individual. Working with people is always a challenge, but this role helped me learn how to become a better listener, leader and executor. Customers weren’t always the greatest and some team members could have contributed a little more, but all in all — the company invests in its people and the resources are provided for good success.

    Thank you for training and recruiting my STL. I would put her name, but I don’t want to share that. She was amazing and she taught me a lot about myself and life. When we parted ways, she was very professional and still cared. She helped me become a better leader and pointed out many things I needed to improve on to be the best leader I could be. She’s an amazing asset and if all of your STL’s were like her, your company would never fail.

    My STL was amazing and I loved working for her. She didn’t sit behind a desk and collect a check; she actually did all the things she demanded of us: cleanliness, brand execution and hard work. She was amazing and anyone who has the opportunity to work for her will be the better for it. She cares for her team and tries to be as fair as possible.

    Thank you for the opportunity to live the red and khaki life for as long I did. I appreciate and love the management team I worked with and for. God bless you and your careers at Target. I wish you all the best!

    I worked at Target full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Good practice for pitching a product (Redcard is a thing there)
    -After 2 months, it becomes easy to do
    -Co workers help

    Cons

    - Communication between departments was a problem for the store I worked at. Because of this, some shoplifters got away.
    - Going to be bothered to pitch the REDCard. Not too big of a complaint but if they find out you're not trying, they might do something about it.

    Advice to Management

    -Better incentives for Redcard goals?
    -See above
