I have been working at Target full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Working around a wide variety of interesting people is fun, but the ability to cross-train and have opportunity for career advancement is above all the best perk.

Cons

Dealing with angry guest from time to time can be high stress, especially as GSTL. But being able to overcome problems and find solutions is very rewarding and makes it worth the tough times.

    Solid company to work for if you can deal with the politics.

    I have been working at Target full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good compensation if you're well liked/work hard. Within four years I went from being a salesfloor employee to the highest position you can be in without a college degree, which pays reasonably well.

    Cons

    From what I can see, it's very difficult to advance once you reach a salary based position. And you start at 50k/year and work 50+ hours a week.

    Former Employee - Team Leader in Boulder, CO (US)

    I worked at Target full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Reasonable pay for retail
    - Good work culture
    - Good schedule/hours (by retail standards)
    - Focus on development
    - Diverse and fun team

    Cons

    - College degree required to promote to ETL. I was told directly that I exceeded the expectations of my position and was ready for promotion but would not be considered without at least a two year degree.
    - Inconsistent standards and expectations from store to store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reconsider the policy that ETL's and above must have a degree. You are losing quality "retail" people because of tis.
