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

    Pros

    If you're looking for a part time job they are super flexible with hours. t's easy to move up to a certain extent. However, once you've gotten into a position you're good at even if you hate it, they won't move you up any further. If you're good at what you do, you are more than likely to get stuck.

    Cons

    Pay and benefits are terrible. Micromanagement has always been an opportunity with the company. They cannot maintain store team leaders and district managers long enough to support the growth of their team leads, seniors and execs.

    Pros

    The team is friendly and helpful, and typically all support each other. If you work hard and they think you're a good fit for your store/district, you can promote pretty quick. They're really helpful when it comes to training and development.

    Cons

    It's a corporate retail job. They don't divide out part-time and full-time, so you might have 40 hours one week and 25 the next. You have to keep your availability completely open and be willing to do any position, and any/all weekend shifts to keep your hours up. Leaders are incredibly passive-aggressive; you probably won't know that you're doing something wrong for a few weeks, until you get put on corrective action for it (i've seen this happen to countless team members.) You will probably only have one or two team leaders that actually care about you, and they'll be the ones who get performanced out (AKA set up to fail and then fired in tears) for it. Guests/customers are incredibly snobby and self-entitled. They think they deserve everything because they're upper-middle class and they got dressed up to come shopping..

    The wage is not great, either. Lower than Walmart in my area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop cutting hours in your districts just because they're missing sales. You NEED team members and adequate staffing in order to drive profitable sales. Increasing hours of Guest Experience departments is the first step, it's impossible to "vibe" with guests when there are only two cashiers and two sales floor team members in the store. having adequate staffing for the front end and sales floor will increase overall guest satisfaction. keeping FLOW and Presentation teams off the floor during hours of operation is step two; face it, their job requires a messy area. Pallets all over the sales floor and torn-up aisles do not look inviting to guests, REGARDLESS of how FFF the team members in the area are.
    Work-life balance needs work, as well. If leadership teams have the luxury of alternating weekends, team members who are openly-available during the week should get that perk as well. Work-Life balance can't happen if you're spending your entire weekend, every weekend, in the store. Reserve weekend shifts for night/weekend team members (second-job people, students, etc) and let the people with open availability enjoy a weekend or two off!
