    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 10 years)

    Pros

    Corporately it is a great company gives a lot to charity and has benefits for it's empoloyees

    Cons

    However on the store level the pay is awful the working conditions as well as the way the team members are treated is horrible. It's sad when you are penalized for having to get a second job just to make ends meet. Hours are cut to pad bonuses you can work for 40n hours a week for 6 months then because of "sales" your hours can be cut to 10 a week. I was told that I do a great job and am a very effective employee but that I have "topped out on my pay scale and will no longer be receiving a raise from now on thats pretty pathetic when top off is a few dollars above 10/hr and I've been with the company for over 11 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    lead by example.

    Former Employee - Senior Team Lead in Douglasville, GA

    I worked at Target full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very organized operations. There is a plan for everything.

    Cons

    The management at this location would not take the time to train you and develop you for a better position. I was hired as a senior team lead, until I finished my bachelors degree ( then I could go up for an executive position). That never happened.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more to develop your team so that they can advance in the company.

    Current Employee - Sales Attendant, Cart Attendant, Cashier in Atlanta, GA

    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.
