    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.

    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.

    Work on succession planning.
