    I have been working at Target full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity to grow quickly within the company. Good job security, you always know where you stand. Get to be a full business owner and get great leadership experience. Pay is really good which makes it hard to find employment elsewhere.

    Cons

    Poor work life balance but good compared to other retailers. If you work in a high volume store expect to work a minimum 50 hours/week. You work every other weekend, every holiday, and every weekend around Christmas time. Working hours are all over the place, can be very early in the morning or very late at night.

    I have been working at Target full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Okay pay, paid vacation and sick days, cell phone plan discounts, other great employee benefits

    Cons

    Unfortunately everything varies based on the location you work at. One store’s management and HR might genuinely care about its team members and treat everyone with respect, and another store location might talk bad about you and pick on you if they just don’t like your personality. (I traveled in the district and experienced the differences in store culture firsthand.) Great if you get lucky and work at the right location...

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Great culture depending on your store director and area where you work. Great management development for young people out of college.

    Cons

    A required 10 hour work day that is mostly unnecessary. Work/life balance is hard to achieve, especially during Q4.
