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

    Pros

    Since I was part time and still in school, it was great that they were so flexible about my hours and it was a fantastic job to have during college

    Cons

    Were not very open to new opportunities for their employees. Wanted to work somewhere other than cashier and train for other positions, but would keep scheduling me for cashier shifts

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

    Pros

    At the time, part time employees received fairly decent benefits. Also, while store management was strict, they were fair. I liked the huddles and the pep talks.

    Cons

    Upward advancement was difficult if you were a part time employee. Despite all of the security protocols, employee theft still occurred, which was disheartening.

    Advice to Management

    If you have not done so already, make management trainee programs available to all employees. If it was available to me at the time, I would have stayed with the organization longer.

    Pros

    For the most part, there is an opportunity for growth.

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

    Pros

    The pay was better than other large retail stores.

    Cons

    There wasn't really a culture, but it was a part-time job during high school so I'm not complaining.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe have more events with employees.
