    "Good Vibes"

      Current Employee - Cashier/Barista in Bellevue, WA
      Recommends

      I have been working at Target part-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Great team, friendly co-workers, great breakroom food, team leads care about their staff. They are really flexible with my schedule as I go on LOA twice a year for a long period of time. They treat each other like family.

      Cons

      I don't know if this is still the case but selling Red Cards was highly encouraged which personally I didn't really like.

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

      Pros

      maybe is easy to apply

      Cons

      the store management was a huge disaster! An remodel supposed to be done in two months last until before Christmas. Every ETL is more concern about personal stuff than the team or store effort. Customers complained and walked out the store in angerall the time. Tasks were never done on time but management let people do whatever.

      I worked at Target full-time

      Pros

      Flexible schedule, able to work independently, ability to work with and meet all of the team members, work closely with management which allows you to learn a lot. Target is a great company to work for whether you are trying to build your career or have a flexible work schedule if you are in school.

      Cons

      All hands on deck during the holiday season doesn't allow for a lot of time off with your family.

      I have been working at Target part-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      They pay more than minimum wage Opportunity to learn more departments so when hours drop you can pick up shifts. You can request time off They offer paid time off

      Cons

      Management is lazy No guaranteed hours Can have hours cut from full time to less than part time They rarely promote from within Managers hide in their offices frequently They often get upset or forget when you request time off and just don't mark you down for it When there is a scheduling error on their part they make you feel bad for having certain times of availability

      Advice to Management

      Promote more within so people actually aleady care about the company. This will prevent hiring managers who just hide in offices and use company credit cards to buy lots of food to eat in said offices

      I worked at Target part-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Working there as a high school student and partially into college the hours were very flexible. Also, the other younger workers there were awesome, I loved the people I worked with (except management).

      Cons

      I worked at target for 4 years as a cart attendant. I was in school for engineering and only worked weekends for the last year and a half. Maybe it was just the store I was working at but the management there seriously had no clue what they were doing. Any little problem they would have they would just put in a maintenance request and wait for someone else to fix the problem. I think the worst part was that none of the...

      Advice to Management

      Unless you start hiring ETL's (Executive Team Leads) from within the pool of team members, leave the floor management to the Team Leaders. A re-occurring theme was that the Team Leaders hated the ETL's. This was because the ETL's don't work with the same team day in and day out so they have no idea of their individual capabilities. Have ETL's stay in their offices and come down to throw the rule book at a guest only in...

      I worked at Target

      Pros

      It is a fast-paced, exciting environment, where you get to work with a lot of great people. You will definitely gain valuable experience that will help you in your next job.

      Cons

      Individual development is not a priority within Target. Senior leaders are more interested in micro-managing than developing their teams. Work-life balance is another problem at Target. They start by telling you to work a minimum of fifty hours a week, but the expectations are that you stay until everything is done. Since it is impossible to get everything done, you end up working long hours, without any additional...

      I have been working at Target

      Pros

      The company is well known and has a good retirement package.

      Cons

      Lack of work life balance you are scheduled 50+ hours a week with rotating weekends off. This means that every other week you work 6 days in a row. No diversity from the Executive team leader and above, there are lots of people of color as hourly team members, but not in the management levels. You don't have a divers peer group to relate to. Incompetent store team leaders, it takes forever to move out a bottom performing...

      I worked at Target

      Pros

      They were very flexible in my requests to take time off and work around my sports and school schedule. They offer competitive salaries for part time workers. They crossed train employees to help avoid long lines at the registers and also provide more variety to the day. Pleasing a customer by finding an item in the backroom always makes them feel good and gives you a feeling of satisfaction.

      Cons

      Sometimes you have to put up with mean or upset customers. Cleaning up the toy aisle everyday just to have more kids come and make a mess the next day can get a little old.

      Advice to Management

      I thought they were doing a good job at keeping employee morale high and communicating through newsletters in the break room.

      Pros

      Ok pay for executives, even though at our store we were far more underpayed than at others in the area. They gave us a lot of freedom when it came to recognizing our team members.

      Cons

      LONG hours. Once you get something done right, there will be new expectations. If an endcap needs to be set and you've already been there for 12 hours, the store manager will make you set it before going home. And don't count on help from your team members since there are not enough to get the job done. Best part was that from a number of execs the yearly bonus was taken away by reducing our review score far below what...

      Stop reducing the number of Team Leads and Executives in each building while talking about work/life balance for management.
