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

Pros

-Very flexible with scheduling. Started in July and had school in August. Was allowed to change my availability without much fuss
-friendly coworkers. Everyone is super friendly and not because they have to. Made great friends
-Decent pay
-Very structured break/lunch system. Doens't make you work excessively long without a break

Cons

-Red cards. Cashiering is already repetitive/boring/stressful enough without GSTL's constantly reminding you to ask guests for red cards. It wouldn't kill them to give some incentives for cashiers who get frequent red cards or who makes the effort. A "shout out" on the walkies is meaningless to some.
-Rude and difficult customers.
-Long never ending lines
-Poor training. Your "real" training is when you're on a lane by yourself and asking other experienced cashiers how to do _________. The training for cashiers is a joke. Spending under two hours shadowing experienced cashiers is NOT enough
-Too hard to cross train. Too many requirements.
-Not many chances to move up

Advice to Management

-Treat your team members better. Give them some incentives if they have a certain amount of red cards. Recognize their hard work. Appreciate them more. Interacting with hundreds of customers daily can take it's toll on someone.
-Actually train your cashiers properly

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

    Pros

    Extra .50 per hour for working 4am-8am. Easy work. No customers to deal with.

    Cons

    You are required to work an 8 hour shift for whatever time they schedule you on the day after Thanksgiving. It doesn't matter if your regular hours are 4am-8am.

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

    Pros

    Management and other team members were generally friendly. When I had a problem I could get it resolved pretty easily.

    Cons

    Work environment was just okay. They like to claim that they pay you more than other places but in reality they would pay you less if they could.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your employees better and don't think of them as just another ant in the colony.
