    I have been working at Target part-time

    Pros

    Great Management; Great Perks like employee discount; Employee appreciation parties;

    Cons

    You may sometimes get too many people telling you what to do which conflict with what they tell you (i.e. too many leaders)

    Advice to Management

    Focus on 1 single person someone reports to. Too often, I'm told to do a task by a team leader, then the LOD will assign a task and then an ETL will tell me different.

    Pros

    Its fine if the people you work for are.

    I worked at Target (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome Team, Friendly Staff, clean and courteous employees. Very fast paced, highly Interactive Learning Programs. Wake up early and you get to workout all day long and get paid for it

    Cons

    Not so Awesome in other areas. Like the pants. Tan pants don’t exist in the future and neither should clothes models from the 50’s mindset. Nike’s and jeans with anything red on top could and would be a better start for branding. Then just bullseye everything and make it local. all targets doing local awesome stuff that pushes the limits of management in a new constructive way plus creates attractive young no experience jobs to grow into your unknown. Timed breaks are stupid

    Advice to Management

    Keep talking to everyone from the back to front top to bottom talk talk talk my Target is known as “Ashley’s Store” and I like the personal touch at my target

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

    Pros

    Easy job, everyone was nice, management cared about you. They don’t make you feel bad when you get sick. If you have to to go to a funeral they care about you and give you the time you need. Hard working co-workers, you can bring up complaints and praise during morning break. Lots of free food and drinks when workload gets tough. You can pick up shifts to get a 40hr week.

    Cons

    Only an hour of sick leave every 40. Sometimes management and the higher ups were not on the same page causing wasted work. Nothing too bad.

    Advice to Management

    Get all leads on the same page so they’re not bickering with each other and wasting time.
