    Overtime around holidays with pay & a half, part of a team but most of your work is completed individually

    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    This is an easy job to get.

    Was promised full time, but didn't get scheduled any more than 25 hours a week. Backroom team members were in short supply, and were treated poorly.

    I have been working at Target part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A lot of good co-workers
    Somewhat flexible scheduling
    Fairly good hourly pay

    Cons

    Management constantly gossips about you if you're sick and assumes you were lying
    Try to take advantage of you and schedule you outside availability
    Expect A LOT of hard work for how much you get paid
    Inconsistent hours
    Constantly cutting corners and under staffing stores

    Advice to Management

    Understand that when people have to do 5 things at once constantly because Target is too cheap to properly staff their stores that it is hard to get things done a lot of the time.

    Pros

    Fun co-workers, okay pay for the position, benefits

    Cons

    Lack of hours available, some of the Team Leads act like they’re better than you when they make 50 cents/hr. more

    Advice to Management

    Give team lead position to those deserving of it. Don’t treat employees bad. It’s just Target. Lol
