    Provide kiosks throughout store so that Guests can open their accounts prior to checkout without feeling pressured by cashiers to do so then.

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

    Pros

    Really good leadership experience.
    Great for someone who doesn’t like sitting behind a desk or a plain 9-5.
    Free food in break room every once and a while.
    10% discount that can be used on top of other discounts.

    Cons

    IF YOU DONT SPEAK UP AND SAY YOU WANT A PROMOTION, IT WONT HAPPEN. NO MATTER HOW GREAT YOU ARE!!! If you want to move up and they don’t do it after a year in the position, please move on because they are dragging their feet to do what is best for the store not you!

    No respect from management
    Always poorly staffed
    A lot of hard work that is not worth the pay
    Very stressful
    The supposed set schedule gets messed up all the time. So if they tell you that you will get every other weekend off... this isn’t always true
    Poor communication and staffing leads to workers doing double work
    Higher management doesn’t take up for their mistakes or apologize.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites and give everyone a fair chance.

    Top management like STLs, should be more involved and kind. My STL, is bipolar and doesn’t give recognition. HR doesn’t listen to concerns.

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

    Pros

    They notice you when you get a customer a red card(target credit card) they train you in other departments. Nothing really good about this company. Pays good too but thats it.

    Cons

    10% discount for employees which is stupid honestly, whats worse is that you can only use it if you have a gift card cash or the red card. If you’re gay they dont care about you. Im gay and they looked at me differently and treated me unfairly.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone equally wether they are gay bi lesbian trans muslim etc.
