Pros

The management team is usually flexible about working around other schedules, such as day care or school or whatever. Pay is ok and benefits are solid.

Cons

Working weekends and nights gets old really fast. Employee discount is 10% -- a pittance.

Advice to Management

Pay your employees more, recognize them more, reward them more. You need carrot and stick to move the ship forward, stick alone won't cut it.

    I worked at Target part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hours are flexible.Job kept me busy and I usually worked independently. Getting cross-trained and picking up extra shifts can happen if you are willing and volunteer often.

    Cons

    Getting more hours can be very difficult depending on what season it is. Management was extremely forgetful, so if you needed anything done (whether you want to be trained in other areas, be promoted, etc) you have to say something every single time you see them. Telling one manager isn't enough, you need to individually tell all of them.

    Advice to Management

    There really needs to be a system that makes it easier for people to pick up each others shifts. It would also be nice if there was one manager who didn't have to work the sales floor as well, so they could concentrate on mentoring/training. Having to constantly do the work of a regular team member and a manager keeps management distracted, and their performance suffers.
