Great part-time job

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Denver, CO

I have been working at Target part-time for more than 5 years

ProsDecent starting pay, co-workers are great, hours are flexible. Plenty of opportunities to advance. This is a great place to work part-time as supplemental income. I wouldn't try to rely on the pay as a main source of income.

ConsDealing with the public in retail is always a challenge. It's difficult to get yelled and not be able to say anything back (especially in returns), but that doesn't happen too often. Selling the REDcard is also a pain.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Good College Job

Sales Floor Team Member (Current Employee)
Salt Lake City, UT

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

ProsWorked really well with my school schedule. Can pick up extra hours pretty easily. Money is decent for retail. Enjoyable work environment. Fast-paced, fun.

ConsStaying late, especially during the holidays, isn't the greatest. Opportunities for advancement are few and far between. Can get monotonous at times, depending on your position.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want people to stay longer, you have to make it worth it to them.
