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

    Pros

    Upbeat atmosphere, ability to transfer fairly easily from city to city, flexibility to take time off, community interaction, school friendly.

    Cons

    The review process is designed to highlight your shortcomings not only as an individual but as a team. This means that the companies performance expectations, reflected as percentage based scores of the numbers your work center should be achieving regularly, are never satisfied. Ultimately, this serves as justification for giving hourly wage "raises" ranging between $0.08 cents/hour and the highest suggested to be $1.00/hour.

    Several people I know had their names copied and pasted into their supposedly individually generated annual review, which you are given a copy of after reading though it with your department supervisor. All team members (non executive team leads and team leads) are openly considered expendable. The biggest challenge normal team members face is the drastic fluctuations of hours that they may work in a week. Hours are always being cut under the guise of "saving payroll" which few understand actually means: "Go home, we have grossly over estimated the need for you to work today.". During the holidays, non seasonal team members see their average hours cut roughly in half to accommodate the huge influx of seasonal employees, regardless of how long they have worked for the store or are willing to work in other work centers.

    Not coaching an employee if you don't think they are doing a good enough job.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to let someone go two weeks before Christmas, at least give the person the courtesy of telling them what they did wrong instead of just saying "it's not working out". Explain to the person your decision instead of living them in the dark.
