    Pros

    Always something to do. Very involved in the back.

    Pros

    You definitely learn retail experience from working here. The traffic that comes in twice a day can really push your ability to work fast, act friendly, and while making it fun to work.

    Cons

    If you have a poor management team, you will hate your life.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people who you work for. Some people who have been there for years and are dedicated to working here will tell you or show you what is working and what needs working. Listening to their advice can help better the team as a whole.

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

    Pros

    - Starting pay is $12/hour and benefits are offered if you qualify.

    - My store managers worked with my schedule.

    - 10% discount on any item, and 20% discount on fresh veggies/fruits.

    - Majority of the other team members were friendly and helpful.

    - I was actually happy working there.

    Cons

    During the holidays they work you hard. I would work 7-10 days straight from November till early January. Working 70-80 hours without day in between was rough.

    This is the second time I've been laid off. Once in 2012 and now in 2019. I won't come back for a third time.

    Advice to Management

    Management was excellent in my store. However, Corporate makes management look like the bad guys when changes occur, cut hours or lay off people.

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

    Pros

    Reasonable pace, consistent work, clear expectations.

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

    Pros

    The work is satisfactory and makes you feel like you actually accomplished something.

    Cons

    If you work in the back room, management either doesn’t know who you are, or doesn’t care.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your flow team like humans. You lost 3 solid guys because you didn’t like to have your egos bruised by harder workers. Your store would cripple without them. Let’s see the GSTLs and HR desk bunnies unload 2 trucks at 4am.
