    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, good people, laid back in a lot of ways.

    Cons

    - Black Friday (Company doesn't care about their employees and their family life) - Working any major holiday is insane.

    Pros

    The job is very easy once you get the hang of it. The co-works make working at Target really fun, some days all you want to do it talk and hang out with them. You move around from department to department, and you learn different skills that you can use after you leave the company. It's a great job if you are in high school or just getting out of high school, or a college student. It's not a career job unless you are a team leader or LOD.

    Cons

    Yearly reviews you don't get good raises, 27 cents is concreted really good. Not enough cashiers heavy use of back up from the sales floor. That't really the only thing I really hate about my job. All day the team leads just call for back up and complain why we didn't do a better job on the sales floor, because you will spend 60% of your shift backing up if you go up every time they call it. Not much room to grow unless you become a team lead. As far as being a Bike builder you are not given the hours to really do your job right, it's more then just assembling. You are the department because their is most of the time just one bike builder per store. The team lead will gladly pull you from your job to do something on the floor or what ever because they didn't staff the store right. You have to tell them no and explain to them like kids why you need to stay in your department. In the very job description you are not required to back up or anything but stay in your department. Do they care some times. I got into a argument with the store manager when I had just trained to bike builders to cover for me when I went on vacation, and I wanted to check the bikes to make sure they were safe for the guess, and he didn't want me to do it. He was sending people home to save hours and wanted to move me from my job to cover them. Just be prepared to defend your rights as a worker because they will try to take advantage for you if you let them.

    Advice to Management

    To fight for the team members well being instead of only kissing corporates butts. Stop giving us lip serves and starting showing that you care by your actions.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This entire review will come from the location that I currently work at: - Great team environment - Friendly co-workers - The leadership is usually very understanding of one's circumstance - Fast work environment never any dull moments - Target tends to promote from within, have a great attitude and you can work your way up! - If you want to, you have the ability to maintain a social life - Make acquaintance, relationships in Target gives you somewhat of a social life

    Cons

    - There are times where there is no flexibility in scheduling - Sometimes getting scheduled when you've requested off, LOA, or on vacation - This is recent but not calling a team member to check on why they are not in the store yet, but it is understandable because it is your responsibility. This isn't high school. - PAY - Hours are a bit wonky and benefits are non-existent for the most part if you're not in a leadership role - Depending on hours you may not have a social life - Some policies are frustrating to deal with - Some guests (customers) can be pains in the rear

    I have been working at Target part-time

    Pros

    Higher pay for part time workers than most retail stores, and willing to give you hours.

    Cons

    Store is very hot, and often under-staffed. There sometimes seems to be a lack of communication too.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure there is enough staff on the floor, and all announcements are communicated.
