I worked at Target part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Decent pay for position, always willing to give extra hours, but not forced, always asking for feedback on your total job experience, very free with praise for a job well-done.

Cons

The 4 months I was there were really good. I really don't have any cons to share. They are a good employer.

    I worked at Target full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay was good. Met some great people.

    Cons

    As a supervisor, I was given an unrealistic amount of tasks to complete each day, in an environment that lacked the amount of team members and time needed to complete the tasks. There were entirely too many egos and hands in the cookie jar -- so to speak -- causing you to feel like a puppet on a string trying to please everyone at all times. There was no regulating when various Executives Team Leaders would pull you from an assignment to help them complete their tasks, which took away from priority project that you might have been working on.
    Most days, I would go in with tasks to complete in my departments, only to be given an additional list of tasks from Executive Team Leaders. And no matter what your workload included before they arrived, you were now expected to complete it -- period, or risk being written up. It was a culture of, everything needed to be completed by the end of your shift, no matter how many tasks, no matter the lack of team members to assist with the project, no matter what. Everything and every task was urgent and priority until someone else said that it was not. The worse experience I've had, to date, with any company that I've worked for.

    Advice to Management

    If you give a team leader and assignment to complete, once they've delegated the tasks to their fellow team members, try not to pull those team members from that task before the assignment is complete. And if pulling team members away is absolutely necessary, which sometimes it is, please take that into account when the project fails to be completed within the initial time frame requested.

    I have been working at Target part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people, great atmosphere, awesome benefits

    Cons

    It's retail, few holidays off, nights and weekends a must.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for greater control at the store level. Many things don't work corporate wide.
