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

Pros

-Co workers were mostly pleasant.
-Super nice managers, though they were pretty uninvolved.
-Clear expectations
-Store security always has your back.

Cons

-Cashiering is a nightmare. If an old lady needs to count her change, your speed will go into "red zone." If a lady with kids fumbles with her wallet, "red zone." If you're in the "red zone," you get "coached."
-If you don't get enough people to open "red card" accounts, you get coached.
-Long, long shifts spent doing nothing but cleaning up.
-Customers at Target always seem really angry. I do not remember a moment where a child was not screaming at the top of their lungs somewhere in the store.
-For some reason, the fitting room attendant has to also be the store phone operator, which adds to the chaos of the already chaotic fitting room.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cap the chaos.

    I have been working at Target part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible with your schedule and you have the ability to focus more on other things. It is probably better than some super stores.

    Cons

    Terrible pay and rude customers. Anyone beneath the managers does not get enough respect. Closing shift employees always lose hours out of there schedule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees

    It's good for a retail job

    I have been working at Target full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The pay is good for retail. Benefits are good - health, dental, and vision are available for full time employees, as well as retirement plans, and of course the employee discount. Employees are generally happy and friendly.

    Cons

    They are always changing the way we do things, even if what we are doing is working well. Communication (at least in my particular store) is not the greatest. Also, it is retail so expect to work weekends and holidays (including Thanksgiving!)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't fix it if it is not broken.
