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

    Pros

    When you fully invest into developing and holding your team accountable, you have the potential to be very successful. When you develop a personal system that incorporates organization and works even when you are not there, you guarantee success!

    Cons

    When you fall behind on workload, it's a beast to get back. Certain times can feel like a stretch for your team with payroll hours and half the fun is figuring it out within means.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your teams. Coach, counsel, and develop early and often as possible.

    Great Leadership Opportunities and sales experience. Depending on the store you work, the staff can be extremely friendly and helpful.

    Overworked, never enough staff to get tasks completed, the pushing of Red Cards, and no holidays off.

    None.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Target part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Discount (iffy), Eating on the clock (I worked at the Starbucks)

    Cons

    Where do I begin; the schedule was NEVER right, management was the equivalent to high school freshmen, communication SUCKED, when it came to addressing a problem you would end up going around to everyone in management and ending up with the problem still unsolved.

    Advice to Management

    While sticking your nose in everyone else's business and spreading their PERSONAL situations around the store, you should be worried about the bigger task at hand which is running your department and running a employee-happy store.

    I worked at Target part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This job was very team oriented. The store worked together to help customers throughout the store, which made the job easier/q

    Cons

    The raises were very small. I do not believe that the workers raise reflected based on their raises. You could earn a great review and still get a very little raise.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the positive things that the team members bring to the team instead of nit picking at the negative.
