    Salary and benefits were very good.

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

    Pros

    There is opportunity for plenty of hours and friendly coworkers. The work is simple but you feel rewarded when you step back and see what you have accomplished.

    Cons

    The managers are a bit pushy and expect too much from you for this being a part-time minimum wage job. They don't always go the nicest route in giving you constructive criticism (I have left in tears more than once). They also bark orders to you while they sit in their offices eating chipotle.

    Advice to Management

    Be more respectful and understanding with your team mates. You never know what could be going on in their personal lives.

    Pros

    Very flexible schedule. Freedom to address issues from a number of angles. Most of the people are fun to work with. We used to do some fun things (cookouts, etc.) however, the new budgets have gotten rid of all fun for the most part. Target addresses issues of workplace harassment, wrongdoings, etc. with full vigor and attention. If you come to work and do a great job, you won't have any problems.

    Cons

    Money is TIGHT. The stores are literally hanging by strings, but of course, expectations only continue to rise. I realize that district management has a job to do, however, just a little honesty would go a long way with most people. It gets old pretending that everything in Target Land is perfect and always will be. Perhaps a little honesty and understanding would reach people more personally and get some extra motivation from the employees. Many team members are beginning to feel that they are inadequate, when what is really inadequate are the resources provided to them.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management - continue to hire the new college grads, however, lessen that ratio and increase the experienced folks, by 10% or so... It's gotten to the point that we have to many "executives" that lack valuable life and professional experiences that our guests could use.

    Middle Management - stop acting like your upper management, people should not be expected to kiss the feet of district leadership; district leadership should be expected to share knowledge with the teams that can take them to the next level
