    Pros

    Friendly staff and Team Leaders, Fast paced environment, Flexible hours.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Positive atmosphere. Quick development, if you're willing to work hard. Easy to get time off. Fast paced workdays.

    Cons

    Working most holidays. Development stops at a certain level. On your feet all day. The usual stresses that come with a job in retail.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bringing on college students as ETLs. Utilize the talent and experience that is already in your store. If you have leadership looking to promote, give them tasks or projects to prove themselves. Push them to develop. But making them feel stuck in their position while they watch kids take the jobs they want, your likely to lose those people with the experience, knowledge, and talent.

    I worked at Target full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment. The team looks out for one another. Scheduling were flexible to student workers most of the time. There are some room to increase positions based on availability and work ethic.

    Cons

    The assistant manager that was in charge during the time was not willing to work with my school schedule for important events. Picking up slack from other employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep to the scheduled agreed between a student worker and the managers in mind before assigning shifts that will compromise the student workers school schedule and have to choose between going to school or getting written up for not showing up to work. Take into account for the sake of both the store needs and the student workers.

    I worked at Target full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with a great team, 21st century company with a modern vision, working for the best company in retail, diverse team.

    Cons

    I was a team lead, and there was much room for advancement to the ETL level when they're constantly bringing in fresh ETL's that graduated college. The benefits are lousy to for hourly employees.

    Advice to Management

    Look to what Walmart and Amazon are doing instead of constantly hiring ETL's fresh from school, get people that work for your stores in the positions!

    I have been working at Target part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice discount
    Decent pay
    Fun work environment
    Lots of opportunities to move up/around the company.
    401k matching
    Super flexible
    Very supportive management team

    Cons

    Scheduling can be frustrating, but they are generally willing to work with you on the schedule! If your team isn't happy it can make for a challenging work environment... other team members always seemed to have a lot to complain about, but I really like working there and feel that as long as you stay positive and work hard management appreciates it and the work goes fairly easy.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do a great job being flexible with scheduling and so supportive of your team members, especially those with mental health issues.
