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

    Pros

    Out of all retail jobs, Target may be the most tolerable
    Great for high school students looking for their first job
    Not stressful or labor intensive work
    Can actually be a fast fun and friendly place to work if you give some effort and meet the right people

    Cons

    The pay/raises every year are awful
    Laziness is often overlooked, and people who work hard are rarely rewarded for going the extra mile
    Incompetence runs rampant in your fellow team members

    Advice to Management

    Please pay more attention to who ia actually doing the work required for their position, who is taking their scheduled breaks, and who is slacking off

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

    Pros

    They give you a lot of Responsibility, but train you well to manage it. Clear career paths laid out. Good competitive compensation. It’s never dull at work, things are always happening and changing.

    Cons

    Retail hours, close once a week and work every other weekend. Hard to get time off around the holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting payroll

    I have been working at Target part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    For a part-time retail job, not bad. Allows me to take a leave of absence when I go back to school, so I only work summer and winter breaks. Not many places will allow you to do that. Great culture, most team members are nice.

    Cons

    Review every year brings a very small raise, doesn't make much of a difference in pay at all. Typical retail job, guests can be irritating.

    Advice to Management

    Provide higher raises to employees who have been with the company for a while, as well as opportunity for advancement for people with degrees.

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule
    Plenty of hours during peak seasons

    Drama

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time on the floor with employees to better understand our jobs, and what we do for the company then behind our desk with paperwork

    Great HR department, flexible hours and a useful discount. Most of the co-workers are really pleasant to work with all the time.

    Cons

    Very low pay for the amount of work done which is to be expected of retail but they really do believe in expect more pay less.

    Advice to Management

    Make team members feel more important
