    Pros

    Great team culture centered around working hard to take care of our guests and drive sales. Recognition based environment where hard work is rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving the company to keep the teams engaged and motivated. Experience matters and we want to keep our veteran team.

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

    Pros

    Great potential for promotions. They like to promote within which helps you feel valued. Loved working my job. Loved working on the presentation team.

    Cons

    Overly structured made pay increase difficult. I was promoted to team lead quickly but due to "structure" my increase was literally 13 cents. I had people on my team that I was in charge of making dollars more an hour than me.

    Advice to Management

    A manager shouldn't make less than there subordinates. I was told that in order to make more money I had to wait and would still not make as much as one of my team members within a year.
