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

Pros

-Very flexible with scheduling. Started in July and had school in August. Was allowed to change my availability without much fuss
-friendly coworkers. Everyone is super friendly and not because they have to. Made great friends
-Decent pay
-Very structured break/lunch system. Doens't make you work excessively long without a break

Cons

-Red cards. Cashiering is already repetitive/boring/stressful enough without GSTL's constantly reminding you to ask guests for red cards. It wouldn't kill them to give some incentives for cashiers who get frequent red cards or who makes the effort. A "shout out" on the walkies is meaningless to some.
-Rude and difficult customers.
-Long never ending lines
-Poor training. Your "real" training is when you're on a lane by yourself and asking other experienced cashiers how to do _________. The training for cashiers is a joke. Spending under two hours shadowing experienced cashiers is NOT enough
-Too hard to cross train. Too many requirements.
-Not many chances to move up

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Treat your team members better. Give them some incentives if they have a certain amount of red cards. Recognize their hard work. Appreciate them more. Interacting with hundreds of customers daily can take it's toll on someone.
-Actually train your cashiers properly

    Pros

    You can get the hours you want, because they're always willing to train you in different areas.

    Cons

    There are a bunch I could think of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If one of your departments is shorthanded, don't tell of the employee for accidently messing something up.. especially if you've never stepped foot in that department.

    I have been working at Target full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This company does a lot for their employes, and has a good open door policy. They have many different discounts for the employee along with life resources.

    Cons

    The management will promised you thing, and does not follow though. They are also focused on who the blame can be put on rather than fixing themselves.
