    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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

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

    Pros

    This entire review will come from the location that I currently work at: - Great team environment - Friendly co-workers - The leadership is usually very understanding of one's circumstance - Fast work environment never any dull moments - Target tends to promote from within, have a great attitude and you can work your way up! - If you want to, you have the ability to maintain a social life - Make acquaintance, relationships in Target gives you somewhat of a social life

    Cons

    - There are times where there is no flexibility in scheduling - Sometimes getting scheduled when you've requested off, LOA, or on vacation - This is recent but not calling a team member to check on why they are not in the store yet, but it is understandable because it is your responsibility. This isn't high school. - PAY - Hours are a bit wonky and benefits are non-existent for the most part if you're not in a leadership role - Depending on hours you may not have a social life - Some policies are frustrating to deal with - Some guests (customers) can be pains in the rear

    I have been working at Target part-time

    Pros

    Higher pay for part time workers than most retail stores, and willing to give you hours.

    Cons

    Store is very hot, and often under-staffed. There sometimes seems to be a lack of communication too.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure there is enough staff on the floor, and all announcements are communicated.

    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.
