    I worked at Target part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The good part was interacting with the guest. Most of them come in all the time, so I grew a connection with them. Also, a few of my co-workers were extremely cool.

    Cons

    They had me everywhere; on the cashier A LOT, and even had me go outside and assist the cart attendant & clean up vomit. Beyond far from my position. Most of the LOD's had an unpleasant attitude. Felt like a seasonal job. You'll only get decent hours during holidays. With the work you do, the pay ($8) is not worth it.

    Pros

    Clear career path, benefits, communication

    Cons

    Long hours, not compensated, will not be given the appropriate resources to get the job done, no work life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember what it was like to work at the store level. Take into account the changes and the decrease in resources and then set expectations. Make sure your management is happy.

    I worked at Target full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    401k match
    Employee discount is a great perk
    Volunteer opportunities, especially with children, schools, and non profits.
    Good job for those who want part time, particularly on weekends and nights.

    Cons

    Unrealistic work expectations, too few team members in the store to manage tasks.
    Have done away with many team leader positions, so no real chance for advancement any more.
    Open door policy is anything but-either retaliated against or HR does nothing.
    Low team morale due to constantly changing schedules, no time to enjoy holidays.
    No chance for advancement-Target now prefers fresh out of college, no experience new hires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    After working for Target for 21+ years, most of that time as a team leader, this company decided to eliminate my position, along with many others. I was not offered a package to leave and was given a job I was ill suited for (pharmacy technician, with no real training) at 20 hours a week. I chose to retire, and my last day I left with not even a goodbye handshake from the management staff. It is sad watching this company I loved become yet another Wal-Mart, with no regard to team members. Demanding "open availability" from team members who will only be offered 16-20 hours. Unrealistic work loads for hourly employees. An "us" vs "them" mentality between management and hourly.

    I worked at Target part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great for a first time experience in retail, or part time job, but after a while there's little reward or fulfillment to be had. at least at my store. Coming on in November as a seasonal hire i was paired with a great trainer, an older woman who worked professionally with an accounting firm. she and my team lead were wonderful and very supportive, they took the time to tell me how to do varied tasks before i was left alone on the sales floor in my department when a guest would likely me ask me about price matching, checking if things were in stock in the back, printing rainchecks ect. all things that were included in my job description but had not been trained much in yet as i had had no previous experience in retail nor using a cash register or PDA. However immediately following Christmas things changed after i was kept on.

    Cons

    After Xmas, hours were cut dramatically. it seemed as if once my team lead and designated trainer were separated on the schedule from me I had to hound down managers mid shift to continue my training. Many of my peers I sought guidance with first seemed to only wing certain protocol and weren't exactly sure, or properly trained how to do certain aspects of their own jobs, and management hadn't noticed. Some one in another department was always around to pick up the slack, but this meant guests would get the run around before finally being sent back to the customer service desk to solve an issue an electronics or hardlines team member should have been trained to do at that point in time. My department in particular was one of the largest in the store, went from 3-4 people on the floor at once to one person. Most of our department were new hires, inexperienced and now alone in our departments, we had to rely too often on busy store managers to address our questions bc many peer team members couldn't answer my questions, through no fault of their own. We kept more customers waiting while we got answers. Team morale plummeted when ETLs pressured us to do our work load within in an allotted time that was normally perfect for finishing work spread between 2 employees, vs one on busy shifts like saturday nights. I saw team leads receive criticisms where they couldn't make the impossible happen which disenchanted me with upper management. we were reminded daily at huddles sales are down, and one ETL in particular constantly berated employees work in front of open ears as often as she could it seemed, but rarely confronting the actual employee unless an audience was present. Very unprofessional. No benefits for part time workers, a solid lack of training once our team leads weren't available to work with us due to hour cuts. red card scam crushed us, every evening my friends and i went home feeling deflated. the stress factor not worth subjecting myself to for such low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR needs to get their act together and prove to us they care about their employees by addressing our concerns in a timely manner, not3-6 weeks later. Some ETLs should spend a shift or two on the sales floor alone on a busy shift before chastising us for not moving mountains in our department when we need to fill in for their cashiers up to an hour on a busy night, leaving our department vacant while merchandise doesn't get stocked, aisles don't get zoned, and phone calls go unanswered..
