    Pros

    Very nice people to work with

    Cons

    Very chaotic during the holiday season.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I have for management would be to let people work longer shifts rather than bringing people in for an hour or two.

    I have been working at Target part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    • The staff is very friendly and open-minded. • There is much room for flexibility, whether its work hours or being trained to work in a different area. • Team members are recognized for their hard work and contribution towards bettering the company and maintaining a high quality brand. • Target is very lenient with scheduling towards employees pursuing educational advancements, such as attending universities and local colleges to acquire degrees and certifications.

    Cons

    • Work hours become scarce during the onset of the year. • Every employee is required to work the day after Thanksgiving (Black Friday). • Zoning areas and pushing merchandise can be excessive during the busy seasons. • Lack of communication causes non-completion of tasks and the misdirection of responsibility.

    Advice to Management

    Adhering to your responsibilities and completing your tasks can pave a steady path towards management. Taking initiatives and leading small teams throughout the store in order to maintain or better the brand is a great way for upper management to take notice of your dedication and consistency.

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

    Pros

    Great work environment. I love my coworkers, and team lead. The GSTL/GSA are always willing to help. You also get perks while on the job.

    Cons

    Overworked. I am one of four baristas after everyone went back to school so I am "part time" but pulling overtime almost every week since we lost over half our staff to college. If you do not like to step it up and take on a challenge then do not work here. Honestly I do not make enough per hour for all the stuff I do.
