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

    Pros

    Met a lot of good colleagues who I now consider to be closer than family. Certain managers really took the time to actually care about me.

    Cons

    Taken for granted, Easily replaceable, If you get to good at your job there's no chance of moving up the ladder especially if you're a cart attendant, HR wasn't willing to help accommodate to me with my class schedules

    Advice to Management

    Allow more opportunities for your employees to review and if need be criticize those who seem to abuse their authority. I never felt comfortable enough to actually stand up and finally feel like I had a sense of self worth as an employee.

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

    Pros

    They work around your availability. Great work for college and high school students. If you are grown and looking for a career this is not the place

    Cons

    They have no respect for their team members. All ETLs stick together. No open door policy. You business gets spread around the whole store. They don't promote either. If you decide to call corporate about any issue, they will retaliate against you

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees

    Pros

    Great pay as a visual merchandiser manager. Great benefits.
