    My job is fast fun and friendly. One of the greatest places I have worked today.

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

    Pros

    Personable staff and decent pay

    Cons

    Hires young executives right out of college, tends to lead to very avoidable mistakes.

    Spend a little more time in the hiring process looking for experience not just a college degree

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Target is great company for those not afraid to own their business and work hard. Lots of remove for growth and development if you work hard and are consistent. The pay goes up and you do get rewarded for your hard work if you consistent.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be a challenge, of course that’s any retail though. If you are a manger ETL or STL there is a lot within your area of ownership and sometimes the work (and expectations) outnumbers the resources.

    Advice to Management

    Expectations should match resources given to stores

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

    Pros

    The two targets I've been to have nice social atmosphere and protection policies are enforced well,

    There's usually room to move up but it requires hard work and long days. This is a good place to earn an honest living

    Cons

    however there company is always pushing for higher productivity and overloading employees with tasks

    Social time is alright but will be in the way of higher hours. Company standard to keep most everyone part time

    Advice to Management

    High turn over rate is because of low hours and compensation not equal to work load. Required breaks and equal work opportunities are morally required not a privilege employees have to be grateful for
