    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Target full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Pay rate, benefits, hours, every other weekend off. Holiday pay. Very fast paced, and very up to date on styles.

    Cons

    If you are not good at multitasking, this job is not for you. You have to do most of the work load by your self.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key. Make sure you are all on the same page when delegating tasks to team members.

      I worked at Target part-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Pay is pretty decent and consistently raises. Staff is usually fun and there are always new Team members! Great benefits package

      Cons

      They typically won’t work around your schedule unless you’ve been there for a while. Depending on the store it can get really slow at times!

      Pros

      The people you can meet

      Cons

      The ETLs generally have no idea what they are doing.

      Advice to Management

      Stop hiring people straight out of college with no retail experience who dont know what they're doing and have never worked a sales floor before.

      I have been working at Target part-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      It was easy work and after about a month working there I knew all the ins and outs of the store.

      I worked at Target part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      10% discount, Somewhat easy work as no one makes sure you're doing what you're supposed to, I really can't think of any others those were thought of at a stretch

      Cons

      You're just another person no one cares who you are, upper management is disrespectful I left early many days and no one even noticed. Hours were not steady some days they wanted you like 3 hours others like 9

      Advice to Management

      Treat employees like they're worth something

      I worked at Target full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      The job was fairly simple and I couldn't complain about what I was required to do. My co-workers in general were fantastic and we had a lot of fun even out of work. Hours were very consistent, for the most part.

      Cons

      Management had almost zero idea on what to do past maybe a day-to-day basis. Every employee was basically taught within training what to do and simply acted like cogs in a machine for the rest of the time. Getting extra work days from a team lead was fairly simple, but it was nearly impossible to ask for days off.

      Advice to Management

      Have some understanding of your job and try at least somewhat to keep your employees in the loop. Don't just walk around like a headless chicken and then blame us for issues that didn't involve us. Stand up and take responsibility.
