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

    Pros

    Target is an extremely ethical company to work for. The company cares about its Team Members. When hours are low, there's always a way to pick up more shifts. They reward the team regularly and have frequent games going on. Target will work with your schedule and there's an open-door policy when you need someone to talk to.

    Cons

    It's a retail job, so you're dealing with the public.

    I worked at Target part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They generally hire fun individuals... thats about it. The company used to have a lot of great employee reward programs and incentive programs but those all died by 2007. Now they do absolutely nothing for their employees.

    Cons

    There are little to no opportunities for advancement.

    Your yearly raise will be under $0.25/hr if you are hard working and well liked, if you are not you will most likely see no raise or you will lose pay.

    They will demand every second of your life to be available to them but will only schedule you 10-20 hours a week.

    When I worked there minimum wage was increased and after a year of working there they began hiring new employees at a higher wage rate than me.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about your employees.
