    I worked at Target part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The job was pretty simple and straightforward and there was a low learning curve.

    Cons

    There was extreme pressure to sell their RedCards and evaluations of job performance were almost solely based off of the number you sell per shift. Management would turn it to a competition and compare you to the other employees even though there were many factors that affect the number you sell (i.e. employee location within the store, time of day, etc.) There is almost no opportunity for advancement and the turnover rate is extremely high. The pay increase per yearly evaluation for hourly employees is only $.25.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't reverse discriminate when you hire people and make employees feel welcomed and comfortable.

    Started out fine but quickly descended into a miserable work environment full of corproate bitt-kissing

    I worked at Target part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Store level management, indeed all store level team members are skilled, friendly, competent, and willing to help or offer advice.

    Cons

    Corporate Policies are horrible, Stores are understaffed so breaks are often overlooked. And the new Red-Card quota policy is grossly unreasonable, unfair, and will cost the store it's best cashiers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Protest the absurd corporate policies, and take BACK the concept of "fast, fun, and friendly" Unionize if you have to!
