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

Pros

the people. always something to learn.

Cons

The pay. Apply to costco or trader joes or any decent paying retailer first. Also, target is a cheapass that doesn't hire nearly enough team members and attempts to try to get 40 hours of work done in 30 hours in an attempt to cut costs.

Advice to Management

Learn what the "planning fallacy" is. Learn to better allocate work between sales floor team members. Have overnight get more done so day team has time to *actually* be helpful to guests, to back up, answer calls, etc. Teach new members how to work efficiently (which is probably even more important than working fast). Learn to better maximize productivity, etc.

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

    Pros

    Maybe the people who work there.

    Cons

    They do not allow their employees enough time and or hours to get their work done. They told me that if I did everything they asked that I would be put up for a promotion, instead I was kept at the lower manager level in order to maintain the store rather than for my personal gain. They tell you they want to help with your development then do everything they can to keep you there.Some of the employees pay for benefits that are more than their paycheck. Maybe need to consider demographics when looking at the conversion level.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more hours and pay to compensate for the stress of the work.
