Pros

Target is huge on promoting from within and helping develop its team into great leaders. They offer numerous leadership based tools to help succeed in any role.

Cons

While work life balance is stressed at target, this is not always the case. Retail requires long hours at times and anyone joining retail needs to be aware of the time commitment a retail job has.

    I have been working at Target part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Management is very friendly and understanding
    Very flexible schedule
    Co-workers are very nice and friendly
    Management takes your side if a guest attempts to make you look bad
    Not too hard to advance in

    Cons

    Way too much pressure to get people to sign up for the REDCards. They can be very demanding about that... especially when the store has less than expected REDCards for the day. It's even harder to get people to apply for the card when it requires a blank check to apply for the Debit card version. Who carries checks these days? (However, you do get occasionally rewarded for getting X number of REDCards)

    Often times not enough employees to help out. I'm a cashier, and on busy days it gets backed up a lot. We need more than 5 lanes open!

    Often scheduled several days in a row at inconvenient times, regardless of what you said your availability was. For example, closing one day (11 pm) and opening the next day (8 am). You could always call in or give a shift away... but sometimes you need the hours.

    Other than those minor complaints, it's been pleasant working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please look into making easier ways to apply for the Target REDCard. It would be better if the guest could just type their routing number and everything directly in the application or swipe their normal card without having to have a blank check.
