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

    Pros

    Great morning/over night Part-Time Job
    Encourages Teamwork

    Cons

    The Management can tend to lose touch when communicating with lower level workers.
    The Management, in many cases, doesn't seem to be considerate of employees' well being.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leaders need to be attentive to how they work together and communicate more often with their subordinates. This will build moral between your Team Members as well as encourage them to be faithful. Take care of your soldiers so they can take care of you.

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

    Pros

    People are nice
    I got a $1 raise from $7.75 to $8.75 after working there for a year, which still isn't very much
    They sometimes reward you for getting a guest to sign up for RedCard, and a mean a big SOMETIMES.
    They leave food out for us sometimes too randomly. Like snacks or lunch.

    Cons

    Random hours. Can't really schedule things around your work hours because they are never the same every week.
    low pay
    unorganized at times
    Cross train you but you wont get a raise for it
    They hound you about getting Red cards.
    You don't get your breaks as scheduled on the paper

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let up a little in the cashiers. They get paid the least of the people in the store and and to the same amount of work as most people in the other sections.

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

    Pros

    People I work with, flexibility in working hours and ability to add and subtract the # of hours worked with in limits.

    Cons

    Current enormous pressure to do superhuman things. Seems to me there is pressure from somewhere (either local or Corporate) to squeeze out as much as possible from part-time workers. Asking part-timers to complete tasks that are physically impossible...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think Management has forgotten what it's like in the trenches. They need to roll up their collective sleeves and work a few days at the positions they are pressuring to really understand what the job entails before making what can be ridiculous demands.

    Former Employee - Team Leader in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Target full-time

    Pros

    Learn a great deal about running a business, A lot of development potential

    Cons

    No work life balance. Raises are not given based on your own work,it"s based off of the sales of the store. Regardless if the store is doing great,the raises are never over $ .50 even if you receive an outstanding on your review.
    No communication from Management.
    Too many Chiefs and not enough Indians
    Managers don't like one another and end up trying to prove who's the leader at the expense of the workers
    Managers talk to you like a piece of trash.
    Too many tasks lists and not enough time
    Not enough hours
    They try to get employees to quit by scheduling you 2-12 hours for the week from January to May

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More work life balance
    Higher Raises and pay
    A new hire with no retail exp. should not come in off the street and make more than an employee,in the same position that has been with the company 15yrs.
    Make sure team members are given adequate training.
