    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 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

    I have been working at Target part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can get your hours if you bug them enough.

    Cons

    Managers will make empty promises to manipulate you into doing whatever they want.

    Advice to Management

    Target team works you to death! I have been here for 2 1/2 years and have been promised growth and compensation and neither have happened. They have tight knit manager groups that make it hard to get a hold of any one especially when they take their hot long breakfasts and lunches together. They try to force your hand and make you change your availability even when you have a legitimate excuse. They need to make sure the ETL are doing their job and not just hanging out with each other.

    I worked at Target part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Guests. Some team members. And loved working the self checkouts and was great at it.

    Cons

    Higher ups. Management. The new HR. Lost all my vacation hrs. No one let the workers know there was no more roll over.

    Advice to Management

    Should have crossed trained me too. Gave you 5 yrs and 4 mons. I was singled out. Not by race. I should have gotten my 65 plus hours of vacation because a lot of us employees were not told about no roll over. Than I lose another 46 vacation hrs.
