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

Pros

-Everyone was nice, friendly, and had a good time.
-Good atmosphere at times.
-Work could be good at times.

Cons

-Low hours.
-Low pay.
-Expected more than they gave in return.
-Overtime was unacceptable.

Advice to Management

My advice would be to the very top, as management on a store level has little to no control over this. Increase what you give to your employees. if you want a strong company that provides wonderful service you have to give more than you're currently giving. You can not expect high quality employees if you give them nothing in return. Remember this golden rule, treat your employees right and they'll treat you right.

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

    Pros

    Great employee involvement and it truly is a fast, fun, and friendly environment to work in! The pay is great and they are understanding towards college students being on their summer vacation. You get one day off a week, plus alternating weekends off, which is a nice surprise.

    Cons

    Retail hours are expected to be worked by interns as well, which is a difficult adjustment to make. The days are long, and your hours are 40 a week, so you get tired very quickly. You're expected to work like an hourly employee, so you have to clock in to work every morning and be sure to follow their strict break schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Mentors should try to be more understanding and helpful towards their interns! Pay attention to them and help them out!
