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

    Pros

    I absolutely love the amount of teamwork that goes into all of our work. There is a lot of space for individuality, but it's great knowing you have good people willing to help if your work load is heavy.

    Cons

    I haven't run into any personally, but I guess some would be the early hours and sometimes the six truck scheduled work weeks. It can be exhausting to some, but I enjoy the work.

    Advice to Management

    Key up the great team moral!

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

    Pros

    The discounts and we got paid overtime for working the holidays.

    Cons

    My training was literally 5 mins the day before Black Friday.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye on their Team leaders because some were very unprofessional.

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

    Pros

    The coworkers are great! Company policy is very transparent, and Target truly looks out for their Team Members.

    Cons

    Salaried leaders often are a bit too laid-back in their own jobs. Many times have I walked into an Executive's office and seen 3 or so of them just chatting about irrelevant things and not doing anything pertaining to work. And this was definitely not on their "lunch breaks."

    Advice to Management

    Hourly workers often slave away to make YOUR daily goals. Please, for the love of God, don't become passive in your own work. I used to like the participative feel and leadership we had in the company.

    I worked at Target full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great team environment and opportunities for development and promotion. If you are lucky enough to have great leaders supporting you then this job can be amazing but it all differs from group to group.

    Cons

    Work life balance is a struggle. Visit culture can also sometimes be tough when one bad visit can basically break your career.

    Former Employee - Merchandise Flow Team Member in Pflugerville, TX

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

    Pros

    Don't have to work with customers in the store (for the most part)
    Have the rest of the day after you get out (shifts start at 4AM, ending no later than 11AM for me)

    Cons

    Team lead was a bit of a jerk, would expect you to stay later than your availability allowed and even tried to send me to help another store after my very first shift
    No one really worked as a team; I worked stocking the clothing area and was told I "wouldn't want the boys messing up our clothing area anyway" when asking if other areas could help us
    Could be a pro depending on how you look at it, but you will be on your feet the entire time, and potentially lifting very heavy objects

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone equally, and actually listen to what your team members are saying

    Made friends fast and decent pay

    Older co workers are rude, management suck, they can't communicate!

    Advice to Management

    Shape up or leave! Too many people quitting cause of a certain LOD
    And talk to each other so y'all don't confuse us!!!
