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

Pros

Discount, big corporate resources, somewhat flexible hours and trend focused.

Cons

Retail hours, super fast paced and physical job that is tiring if not at a speciality counter. Annual benefits enrollment only, pay sucks and forget more than a $.25 raise even if you meet all the proficient/excellent levels. Pay grades are a joke and zero incentive to do a great job other than to merely keep your job. Advancement opportunities don't pay much more and one works even more and worse hours. Not a job to make a living at unless you are a manager and work 50-60+ hr work weeks. All about metrics n corporate despite all the HR n mgmt feel good moments. Brainwashing at its best with haphazard training. You will be a number here even if u work like a dog and your mgrs adore you as it is all about the metrics so mgmt n corporate get their $/bonuses. Advancement to corporate unlikely unless you have been a manager/ETL.

Advice to Management

Embarrassing to be paid less than a Walmart employees. If you expect concierge level guest service and top notch performance reward for such with better pay and benefits. There is no performance based pay for anyone on the floor other than ETL's. Appreciation vibe moments don't pay the bills and become trite after a while.

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

    Pros

    Supervisors were fair and easy to work with in this particular location. Culture rewarded hard work and a positive attitude.

    Cons

    With the company being so large, team atmosphere could be lacking on some occasions. Consistency among managers was lacking as well.
