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

    Pros

    Target is able to give to its team members: Flexible hours, good environment, benefits and team member discount on things in the store

    Cons

    Target could do better by: Pay could be better, benefits don't kick in until one year employment, CVS just bought Target pharmacy so maybe no more team member discount.

    Fun atmosphere, good people, laid back in a lot of ways.

    - Black Friday (Company doesn't care about their employees and their family life) - Working any major holiday is insane.

    Pros

    Enjoyable place to work at. Coworkers were helpful and fun to work with. Received a good amount of work hours considering the amount of team members that were employed at the time.

    Cons

    Early morning hours wear on you. Some of the work efficiency goals requested by team leaders were near impossible to fulfill - though I understand that some of it was meant to be motivation to work harder.

    Advice to Management

    Things for the most part were good from what I could tell. Making sure technology and equipment is up to date and keeping everything functional will help.
