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

Pros

I worked at Electronic dept. and it was great.

Cons

There were times where I had to rotate to different departments that was boring especially one time I was responsible in the Cosmetic dept. OMG, Im a guy and they putt me into that department.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give some slack for sales floors during rush hours and near or during the holidays.

    I have been working at Target part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Most reviews will state favoritism and politics, this is incredibly true. For me this is a pro, I was incredibly lucky to have the team I did. I worked with not only my supervising ETL and Team Leads, but I also partnered with my Store Team Lead and District Leader to help facilitate my progress within the company. I left due to schooling, but if I had to give an answer about my time for Target in that store, it would be mostly positive.

    There is a absolutely no harassment allowed between team members, with such fast paced and favoritism style, this actually happens more than expected. The execs in the store allowed the situation to be handled briefly and professionally. Target has just as much drama as any other retailer.

     Cross training is a big plus, not only will it give you more hours, but it will boost your reputation in ability to handle multiple things at once. If cross trained, expect to be thrown into multiple locations daily. Target has an open door policy, if you want to train somewhere, it's all about asking for it. Those who ended up happiest in their position, were the ones who asked to move somewhere instead of waiting to be moved.

     Don't expect to make tons of money, it's above the leading retailers but below what you will actually want. But there is an employee discount and you will always know about things in the store ahead of time.

    Cons

    Target has a better pay than most, but still is just not enough to survive off of. Those not fit for the company will bring you down, and trust me every store has them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep an eye on the hourly associates, some of them are diamonds in the rough.
