    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Team member discount (10%)
    Relative autonomy in my department because no other manager wants to come up to the front and deal with guests. :)

    Cons

    Upper management does not give clear direction to the business.
    Store level management features a lot of recent college grads who have never managed in their life.
    Pay really isn't competitve if you look around at similar positions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring unqualified store executive level management fresh out of college when you have team leaders (department managers) with more experience and management skill who have been waiting sometimes a decade to promote.

    Great Pay
    Team that feels like a family
    Not stuck in an office

    Cons

    Harder to move up from team level position.
    Do more with less mentality- constantly cutting positions and hours making more work for managers.
    Horrible work life balance, salaried at 50 hours a week, often working more.
    No long term thought process.
    You will be put in positions not based on your skill set but to fill a need.

    I worked at Target (More than a year)

    Pros

    I liked interacting with customers, and the managers will generally help you if you have any issues or concerns.
    HR is great at solving scheduling issues.
    Work a lot of hours if wanted

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive and not enough to afford minimum standard of living in more populated parts of the country
    Overtime is not allowed - basically caps your income at $1600 a month for full time employees

    Advice to Management

    Focus on connecting more with your employees as I only remember having one or two conversations with my manager for my entire tenure.
