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

    Pros

    As a team leader you get every other weekend off. If you are able to select your GSAs (managers just below you) you are able to have a good supporting team to help you mange the front end of the store. You are given full time status, which comes with earned sick, personal, and vacation time.

    Cons

    For the store I manage, not a high volume store, I am in charge of about 30 team members including the GSA team. For the task of managing 30 team members, developing them, training them, keeping guests happy, solving issues, setting planograms, and helping the store to reach both financial goals and red card goals, I am grossly underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    To the corporate office directly, they need to pay their employees better. While Target has increased the minimum staring wage to 10 dollars an hour, at no point did they give management an increase in pay. Many managers make just a few dollars more an hour than the cashiers.

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

    Pros

    The pay is decent and once you have worked with Target for a few months they will cross train you into another area of the store if you would like.

    Cons

    To me there are alot of cons for working at target. The hours are sometimes terrible ranging from 4 hours a whole week to 40 hours a week for me as a part timer. The management at the Target I work at is also terrible due to a huge lack of communication.

    Advice to Management

    Please consider a more consistent amount of hours given to part timers. The constant in consistency is incredibly discouraging.

    Pros

    The culture at Target is great, and the people I work with are awesome. Flexible for school and the benefits are good as well!

    Cons

    Work many holidays and pay could be better. The equipment that were given to do our jobs isn't always the best.

    Pros

    Friendly environment to work in/at.

    Cons

    Target only had part time positions but would try to make employees work full time duties cramped into part time hours.

    Advice to Management

    If your company has employees that wants to work, allow them to work. Don't complain how the company doesn't have the hours but try to rush the employees to work full time duties into part time hours.

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

    Pros

    good pay?
    helping people felt good i guess.

    Cons

    if you do a good job then they will exploit you. over work you then give nothing in return. hours are long and lonely. no manager will ever be able to manage a super target correctly.
    the employee discount is garbage.

    Advice to Management

    learn how to manage your store.

    Pros

    Customers, great team if you hire the right positive people

    Cons

    They will low ball you on pay if you don't know what you are talking about

    Advice to Management

    Promote people who are meeting goals and performance is well. Stop telling people there is room for growth and when the time comes to promote you say wait until next year. Happened to me 3 years on a row.
