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

    Pros

    Very predictable shift, you always know what you are going to face at work. As long as you do what is expected of you, the management will always treat you with respect.

    Cons

    Can sometimes be boring. On nights where there aren't a lot of shoppers, you'll just spend your time in the back reorganizing.

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

    Pros

    Other team members made learning the job fun; employee discounts were a big plus especially around the holidays, overall great work environment

    Cons

    Taking on additional hours in each department over the holiday was difficult due to high OT demand. Hours before and after the holiday slow down a LOT; Some of the team leads treated other employees as less-equals

    Advice to Management

    Overall, the job was good for the extra side money around the holidays. Make sure managers/team leads stay in check.

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

    Pros

    Working with decent, humble people around you. 401(k) options are given after 1000 hour threshold.

    Cons

    Never given overtime. Upper management has unrealistic expectations, but it depends on the individual.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees overtime instead of hoarding it.
