    Pros

    Nice people to work with, generally the team members and team leads are nice people and try to help you out.

    Cons

    Upper management can change and this can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on what type of person comes in to fill the role. They switch out managers more so now so expect to work with the good and the bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Introduce yourself to the team members once you start at a store. If you see someone in red and you don't know their name, introduce yourself. Some managers can be very outgoing, but for the ones who are not its only hurting you by not getting to know your fellow team members (the team members can make your life easy or hard depending on how you treat them).

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

    Pros

    The number one best thing about working at Target is the amazing employees. Everyone is very helpful and you are never made to feel stupid for asking questions. 95% of the employees at my store are friendly and willing to help and are a lot of fun, and this is why I like my job so much more. The hours during the holiday season are crazy, and while this can be a con, the pay was great (we were offered pay incentives for working certain busy days). For the most part, the management (ETL's, STL's, and TL's) is nice and helpful. Shortly after being hired and trained for hardlines, I was placed in softlines and I love it.

    Cons

    When January comes, hours dropped drastically. I went from 27 hours one week to 13 the next. You are expected to back-up casheir so often I feel they never have enough cashiers, and sometimes they don't even need the backup but call for it anyway.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My only advice to management is to try and connect better with the sales floor team members. For the most part this hasn't been a problem, but a few times an LOD has reprimanded someone for slacking when the work load is just larger than that person expected. In other words, ask team members how their zone is going instead of telling them.
