I worked at Target full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Good benefits, upward mobility *with a college degree*, lots of opportunity to work on strengths and weaknesses that can carry over to different employment

Cons

Workload too much at certain volume stores, must have college degree to be considered for key holder, promotions based on interview rather than performance, no work/life balance during the holidays (and getting worse) hourly pay starts at minimum wage or just above.

    Friendly working environment that's both rewarding and challenging.

    I worked at Target as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Team working environment. Offering some small perks around busy holidays only (black Friday/Xmas time frame) that may include higher pay per hour to specific 'gift rewards' depending on your work performance, and flexible part time working schedules.

    Cons

    Challenging around the hectic busy days (black Friday/Xmas time frame) due to working with less Tm. members that have this type of experience around this time frame. (Learn fast & pick up the pace or you will get over-whelmed with 'Guests' and job tasks). If working seasonal hiring, your hours can be adjusted w/ less hrs. towards the end of your contract.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps add a "specialist" for the toys only section during the hectic busy days (black Friday/Xmas time frame) vice integrating them into Electronics even though they don't specify/tell you that' you'll be responsible for all the sections/rows of toys as well as all electronics as well.
