I have been working at Target part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

somewhat fast, and somewhat friendly service

Cons

if you enjoy working weekends, holidays, late nights, early mornings, for little to no money then this is the job for you, if you are not interested in career or professional advancement go no further because you have found your dream job, if you like being a slave with a nametag you have found your ideal employment

Advice to Management

the majority of the stores frown upon higher education and non-target experience, reverse racism is rampant, create more opportunity for advancement, adjust the pay scale, 5 to 8 year part time employees only make 10 to 20% more than first day employees, and have you heard of this revolutionary concept called a full time employees? many employees are forced to work fulltime hours with absolutely no health or financial benefits, unless you include a discounted 1990's style cell phone and 5$'s off a ymca membership, and a 5% matched 401K after you clocked 1000 hours without a 401K, as significant benefits

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

    Pros

    The pay rate is okay. Not great.
    Occasionally free food, especially during summer holidays.
    Sometimes you come across some pretty good deals while you work.

    Cons

    Get hired for one job, but perform almost every job depending on the area you work in.
    Poor communication.
    Say flexible schedule but won't stick to your availability
    No room for growth.
    Always shorthanded.
    Only 10% discount.
    Poor management.
    All positions are part-time despite full time listings.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to see some improvement in investing in your team members. Like help with furthering education in team members for possible advances within the company.

    "Good Job, Management Don't Listen"

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

    Pros

    Good Money, Co-Workers are cool, Easy Job, Cool Boss

    Cons

    !0% discount was not enough for their high products. I volunteered to work a 8 hour shift one day, and ever since then they kept putting 8 hour shifts after I complained and said I didn't want that since I was going through them. Complained two weeks straight and nothing changed so I had quit after a month working there. Some of the "guests" were either crazy or stuck up.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees when they are going through personal issues!
