    I have been working at Target full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Days fly by, you are surrounded by a great team and culture, there is opportunity for growth, the benefits are excellent, a lot of learning potential, not stuck in a daily routine, engage and inspire others, give back to the community

    Cons

    I think work-life balance would be the biggest issue. Days are not 8 hrs, but rather often 10 hours, if not more (and you do not get any overtime). You also have to work 1 on 2 weekends.

    I have been working at Target part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Gives reasonable breaks and team culture is good. Raise every six months and communication between team members is good.

    Cons

    Depends on workers and managers. Barely any chance for promotion. Work and life balance is tough during busy seasons. May work closing shifts and opening shift next day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Team leaders could be more friendly.

    I have been working at Target full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Early hours are great. Team members all pull together to get the job done. Very clean store and doesn't smell like Walmart or Zellers. People compare it to both of them as well as Target in the states and that is not fair.

    Cons

    Was hired full time.Hours have been cut by 50%.ie:50 hrs workload 12 hours scheduled.I have been deceived. Hope it all comes around or they will lose a lot of good people. Not enough selection(softlines) for older people or over sized people. Not enough men's shoes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compare workload to scheduling.
