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

Pros

The staff and upper management are friendly and take the time to get to know you. You get noticed for your hardwork. Easy job generally. They also hire a very diverse staff which is nice to see. Employees are welcome to express themselves (tattoos, piercings, certain clothing) as long as they wear red/khaki.

Cons

Holiday hours are not ideal. Other beginner staff members can get by being lazy and inefficient workers. Low pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more suitable employees.

    I worked at Target full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Great pay. They pay $10-20k more than comparable positions at other retailers
    -Room to grow. I received three promotions in my five years. If they think you're worth their time, they'll invest in your development
    -Community Events are a great way to give back

    Cons

    -Work/life balance is horrid but this is retail
    -Benefits leave much to be desired
    -LOD shifts can take away from your work center's duties
    -They shove REDcard (Target's credit card) conversion quotas down your throat

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

    Pros

    -Decent Pay
    -Only had to work every other weekend

    Cons

    -Hours sucked, I would close one night (11pm) and had to be back at work seven hours later.
    -We were constantly understaffed, even as an hourly employee I was always having to work on my breaks and was still wasn't able to complete all my work.
    -Training was a joke, the leader I trained with had completely different responsibilities than myself and when I got to my store I was expected to know everything right off the bat.

    Overall I am very disappointed with my experience at Target. They preach about being a moral and ethical company but I had a completely different experience. I would certainly not recommend this company to anyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Smaller volume stores still need adequate staffing. There were numerous times I was closing LOD and had three call buttons go off with only one Sales Floor employee on.
