    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.

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

    Pros

    Team member discount. Get to interact with guests (customers). Benefits

    Cons

    Employees are treated like a number. They don't care if you stay or quit, they would rather you quit, so they could hire another warm body to replace you. Leadership is the worst I've ever worked for. They do not listen. They expect a lot for little pay. I'm there for the benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come up with a better scheduling system. Not enough team members working at peak hours. Hire managers with people skills.

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

    Pros

    I have truly amazing co-workers

    Cons

    Target is a company that only cares about 'what you can do for the company' . Team Leads and LODs take advantage of their authority and employees. They write you up just to maintain their quota of "performance discussions". They have a very vague and ambiguous disciplinary procedure which allows them to use it as they see fit. Supervisors refuse to let you see the documentations that has been filed upon you ( coaching's). Management is terribly lazy and tyrannical. They love to play the blame game when everything goes wrong, however weep the glory when the employee's goes above and beyond to fix their imbecilic errors. Bottom line the most abusive management team I have ever seen and Target supports them by writing ridiculously vague company policies.

    Oh, and good luck speaking to HR or Corporate about your grievances because as they say.."birds of a feather flocks together".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, instead of the people that you hire to sit in an office all day doing absolutely NOTHING.
