I worked at Target full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

The hard work can really be worth it. Just keep a positive attitude. They care about training. If you want to move up with the company, you can do so. The benefits were great.

Cons

caution: your store experience will likely be different based on your location
the store manager and how he/she leads truly makes a difference, as well as your District Manager
expect payroll cuts, so you will work hard
this is the norm in any retail environment these days

Advice to Management

Get some of your senior executives to work in a store, especially on a Sunday morning.
Sometimes you shoot yourself in the foot by cutting payroll too much. If you had more salesfloor team members, they could assist guests more and increase sales. If not, the endcaps at every store could be full and your instocks levels always top notch. That alone would increase sales and pay for itself.
Also the AP Executive needs to be focused on just Assets Protection in order to keep your shrink low.
Continue to learn the food business. There is too much revenue lost there as well.

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

    Pros

    Nice coworkers, and get to meet guests that appreciate work and make your day.
    Worked there for seven months and if you need hours you will get them, I started out as a minor with 4 hour shifts during the week but with requests almost worked 30 hours a week with double shifts and time off.

    Cons

    Selling store credit is not neccesarily seen as an offer or option to team leaders or supervisors and they hassle you to make sure you harrass customers to sell it. Inconvenient store hours during holidays. ometimes you wont leave until two with overnight team if you are closing, and you will be asked to close and come in on days off as well as change your availability.

    Be careful as to how early you take time off; you can go about requesting time off, paid vacations, etc online but it is first come first serve

    Advice to Management

    Show gratitude toward employees, and realize the people that are starting off are in a place you once were. Be supportive, not judgmental.
