    Pros

    Paycheck & Safe Environment Provided

    Cons

    Flutuating workweeks with hours usually 20 or less per week, NO BREAKS UNTIL YOU WORK 4 HOURS or more, Little or no equipment to get job done quickly, No training on job areas, and job is micro-managed too much

    Advice to Management

    Give employees a living work schedule with a break at a 2 hour point, equipment to get job done, training on what they need to be doing and get out of the way so they can do the job quickly.

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

    Pros

    While working at Target the only thing that was good here was the discount. Being the first to get a glimpse of the clearance sale.

    Cons

    Overflow of workload, no hours, and bad management. Huddle caused workers to not get their job done on time. Which cause team members to have to work longer. All while hours are continually being cut.

    Advice to Management

    Take time and listen to employees.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Great opportunities to own the business and learn supervisory skills that are valuable in the workforce
    - Good for developing communications skills and the company does work to provide you with information and instruction on goals and initiatives
    - Opportunities for development are pretty decent if your leader is invested in you and your work center
    - Ability to apply earned knowledge and experience on the job in order to have a "global" input on store operations and results

    Cons

    - The work life balance aspect of the position can sometimes strain the relationship between meeting goals and getting home on time
    - Company can become too ambitious with initiatives which results in added stress on store leadership and teams
    - The Senior Team Leader position can be stressed between managing the store and managing one's own work center

    Advice to Management

    - Find balance between what is manageable for teams on the brick and mortar level to accomplish week to week. Workload can become stressful at times which can result in burnout.

    Overall a decent company to establish communication skills and working on team based projects.

    Pros

    Great, pay, benefits and discounts. Great atmosphere depending on co workers. Usually has food, drinks or anything to put a smile on the employees faces.

    Cons

    Unreal expectations. Make their own policies and blame OSHA. No weekends off. Rude customers. Violent shoplifters. Opportunity for advice is a joke

    Advice to Management

    Change your policies according to the needs of the employees. Reward and promote your best workers not the ones you like.
