Former Employee - Signing Specialist in Jackson, MS

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

Pros

You get to learn retail operation.
You get to work with some wonderful people who sincerely care about the guest.
Target has a great 401k plan.

Cons

Target has a tendency to bypass employees for upper leadership position and hire outside unproven individuals.
Most Target employees are working part-time hours but paying for medical and dental benefits they can barely afford.
Target does more for the community than it does for its own employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Before going outside house to hire upper management look at the employees in house that have degrees and a proven track record in leadership capabilities.

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

    Pros

    -Everyone was nice, friendly, and had a good time.
    -Good atmosphere at times.
    -Work could be good at times.

    Cons

    -Low hours.
    -Low pay.
    -Expected more than they gave in return.
    -Overtime was unacceptable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be to the very top, as management on a store level has little to no control over this. Increase what you give to your employees. if you want a strong company that provides wonderful service you have to give more than you're currently giving. You can not expect high quality employees if you give them nothing in return. Remember this golden rule, treat your employees right and they'll treat you right.
