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.
