    I have been working at Target part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Better pay than most big box retailers and usually will accommodate for flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    Terrible management team, usually with leave their promises unfulfilled and expect too much for too little pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire people based on whether they have a degree or not. It should be solely based whether they have experience within the field they are apply for. If not, at least don't hire these inexperienced people for management positions.

    Pros

    Nice co workers. Things are pretty easy to learn.

    Cons

    Rude customers. Executive managers want everything from you but you get nothing in return. They rather bring people in from other stores than promote people.

    Former Employee - Cashier in Miami, FL

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

    Pros

    I met a lot of greatly supportive people and when I left I was actually in the process of interviewing for a promotion.

    Cons

    There is no real training that will prepare you for actual customer interactions or the many challenges (price challenge, coupon challenge, scam artists, thieves) that may arise. The most challenging part of this job is definitely the customers who will purposely hassle you or a team lead for a discount just because they know they will always win.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees/coworkers, customers lie and will get unnecessarily hostile during the holidays, support your team, it makes an enormous difference!

    Pros

    the hours how flexible they are when you call in saying you cant make it. Employees are a full roster so makes the job alot easier.

    Cons

    the pay could be better only $9 a hour. The rising up through the employment line takes a lot longer that i would like.
