    I worked at Target part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Target is a great first job where you can make decent money while working in a team. -everyone is friendly and willing to help out -group huddles to talk about achievements and new sales. -great pay -lenient late policy -if you work till close, you will feel safe because everyone leaves at once.

    Cons

    -Have to be constantly on your feet - good summer job, but no room for advancement -if you shift ends at closing time, you will be there another hour to clean up your zone.

    Advice to Management

    -be upfront about closing shifts and try not to schedule an opening shift the very next day.

    I have been working at Target part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The team members are more than friendly it seems in most cases (That or I was more fortunate) and it's a great way to gain more social skills, as it's a very active Retail environment. Grocery helps mold into you a sense of responsibility and time management, in a sense that you're required to push a lot of shipment onto the floor in a shift to ensure guests are able to find what they need on their shopping trips and...

    Cons

    There are downsides, but it wouldn't be a job without some. So to start off with, as mentioned in the title, there is quite a hefty amount of Grocery shipment to get out onto the floor to get out to guests so that it can be purchased and guests go about their day. Your agenda is to get whatever you are able to out, then whatever won't go out to back stock in the back room to pull from later so as to replenish. You'll...

    Advice to Management

    For some stores there are the issues of scheduling and lack of reliable team members in evenings to ensure work is complete prior to closing. In meaning sometimes it's difficult to finish unloading a truck and leaving nothing else laying about without sufficient amount of help or time to do so. Hopefully one complaint would be enough to prevent this issue as its happened to me dozens of times where I needed to have another...

    Former Employee - Barista in Westminster, MD

    I worked at Target for more than a year

    Pros

    You'll get paid, but not a lot.

    Cons

    You'll be expected to run Starbucks by yourself. A limited amount of employees can do the work so that no one can help. You'll be covered in syrup be the end of the day. Also, no free coffee. You work for Target and not Starbucks.

    Advice to Management

    They wouldn't learn how to do the work and then criticize us on what we did.
