I have been working at Target part-time

Pros

10% employee discount? Free PB&Js in the break room?
I guess for the college kids that get recruited straight to ETL positions this is a promising first job out of school... as long as they don't mind being indoctrinated in the methods of stepping on the backs of their working staff.

Cons

They tell me "this is retail" but who benefits from different days every week and different hours every day? You never know your schedule more than 10 days in advance so you can't make any plans for your life outside of work. All of this for what pays barely over minimum wage and your hours can get cut to almost nothing without notice. Talked to a guy today that was only scheduled for 7 hrs this week!! Ouch!!
Virtually no room for advancement. Know people with the company 6,7,8 yrs who have taken their one step up the ladder and that's as far as they will go because of Target's college degree prerequisite to ETL.

Advice to Management

Treat people with a little more respect. How about acting like your "team" members are at least as important as you pretend your "guests" are to you.

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

    Pros

    As a company Target is very willing to develop team members who show promise, dedication and drive. I was promoted after just a year. Decent raise. You definitely learn a lot and grow as a person after the experiences you have working day to day from guest interactions to the processes and culture of Target.

    Cons

    It is retail, so the hours are terrible, holidays are terrible. The store is huge so you have to walk what sometimes seems like 10 miles everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes it seems like there is less emphasis put on training then their should be.
