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

    Pros

    Team members friendly, customer-centric service

    Cons

    Front line staff diverse from an age perspective but leadership is young and lacks experience to effectively manage staff. Constant focus on making short-term corporate "numbers" with lack of medium or long-term planning. Few managers are concerned about needs of long-term team members.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time at local stores rather than two hour visits. Enhance leadership education to provide more staff development training. Focus on internal promotion of seasoned leaders rather than hiring young managers directly out of college.

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

    Pros

    Great community of people to work with.

    Cons

    Very low wages for non-management staff.
    Rarely no room for advancement unless you go through Management Trainee program.
    Yearly reviews by management usually result in a 7 cent raise each year.
    Too much emphasis on selling red cards that only offer shoppers 5% discount.
    Too much work, not enough time to finish because cannot exceed 40hrs a week. So employees are pushed to do more work than can actually be done in the time alloted.

    Advice to Management

    Support your employees more by acknowledging their accomplishments and giving them decent raises. Maybe forego your over compensated bonuses and give them to your workers who make you look good.
