    I have been working at Target full-time

    Pros

    The people I work with are awesome. There is a real team culture and senior leadership is fairly well connected with team members. People are generally positive and upbeat. This is a huge change from when I first started.

    Cons

    Although the minimum hourly rate has increased consistently, the pay is still not quite enough to be considered livable. Only team leaders are offered truly livable wages.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure all stores have great leadership that connects well with the team. Remove abusive, burnt-out, and micromanaging leaders. Show the team you appreciate them by paying them fairly for all they do.
