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

Pros

Your fellow team members are overall good people. They will help you if you ask for it and are overall. The stores are not too bad, it depends on your location, which will help determine the rush that you have during the store hours. I believe usually Friday and Saturday would be their busiest days during the week, since everyone is off work on Saturdays normally (the corporate, white-collar workers).

Cons

Some of the Team Leaders (Senior and Executive) can be a bit over-demanding on what they expect from you, especially to those who are Part-Time/Seasonal workers. They should realize that only those who are Full-Timers and those that would like to continue long-term should be the ones to be pushed to work harder and smarter to get certain tasks done more quickly and to help drive up sales. Seasonal workers don't feel the need to do that since they don't get any added incentives for doing so, as well as the knowledge that they could get easily replaced and it's not really worth working so hard in order to get meager pay and benefits.

Advice to Management

Give more incentives for Seasonal workers to ensure that they work harder and smarter to help your sales go up during the holiday times. You're wasting too much money and time to keep running through interviews in order to help fill up the store hours, which cuts into your regular Team Members who are looking for hours and those Seasonal Members who might be willing to look into joining your staff as a Full-Time Team Member.

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

    Pros

    It is indeed one of the best overall retail stores in America. It has good benefits and Target does try very hard to look after their employees. They specialize in a clean and work friendly environment as well.

    Cons

    Pay is not all that great. Either your salary or your part-time at the particular one I work at. This would be fine of course if the hours didn't move around every week. There is no way to keep a steady schedule when Target is constantly switching your work days.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to create a better working environment on the sale floor you need to talk directly to your team members and ask the right questions. They know more about whats going on than you could ever know. Also if there were higher level manager actually talking directly to each of these team members a lot of issues would also be discovered.

    Pros

    Good managers, very clear duties. You also get ten percent off all Target products for the duration of your employment, which really is truly great because Target sells so many things that you buy every day. And if you get a Red card as well, you get fifteen percent off today and every day.

    Cons

    Erratic hours, but that's to be expected from a discount retailer.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.
