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

Pros

Fast paced work environment, room for personal development, ability to transfer between stores and departments, friendly staff, easy to meet expectations, worked around class schedule.

Cons

Not enough pay, not enough hours, deal with irate customers, limited ability to move up, uniforms are lame, cutting jobs and hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Store management needs to communicate better so their employees are not confused by what their tasks are. Management is often short-sighted and does not see the big picture.

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

    Pros

    Easy work schedule, lots of flexibility.

    Cons

    Lots of responsibilities for VERY little pay. Cashiers are ALWAYS calling out

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give hours to the sales floor. Cashiers are always calling out and they get the most hours in the store. The other work areas are constantly on guest first so why not give them the hours if the cashiers are never there anyway? That way guest surveys stay positive and in the green by having team members on the floor and you keep people on guest first.

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

    Pros

    For the first 2 months as an ETL I was put in a classroom style intensive training program where I learned all aspects of the business. The training was incredibly valuable especially for someone coming right out of college. Perfect job for someone looking to have a career in retail management

    Cons

    The pay seemed great for just out of college, but then I found out that my standard hours would be 7-5 a minimum, and then 2-12 one night a week. During holiday season you could work till 3am cleaning up the store from the night before. Plan to be exhausted all of the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that the trainers you partner people with are truly invested in being a trainer. Also, 50 miles is very far to transfer someone. In some areas that is a 2 hour commute in traffic and causes people to leave that would have stayed.
