    I have been working at Target part-time

    Pros

    Target is a benign company that truly cares about the welfare of all team members. They pay well, and are flexible with scheduling for students.

    Cons

    Prepare to work nights, weekends, and holidays. Target places extreme emphasis on selling Red Cards to guests.

    Advice to Management

    Management does a great job of creating a positive work environment overall. I would recommend slightly more emphasis on providing guest service and slightly less emphasis on selling Red Cards.

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

    Pros

    - reviews and raise opportunities every year
    - always an opportunity to cross train
    - management really heard concerns about my position and suggested a different one that would fit better

    Cons

    - it's retail, the guests aren't always that friendly
    - even when you know the rules, the managers will bend them for the guest if they yell long enough
    - there's a couple managers that try to delegate their responsibilities to us, making our jobs even harder

    Advice to Management

    - set clear guidelines for which teams do which jobs and stick to them so one team doesn't end up with all the unwanted tasks on top of their own

    The team members are all nice and its fun to work there. HR does a great job with employee recognition and fun activities and food in the break room. Most leaders are supportive and care about their team.

    I worked at Target part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Team-oriented atmosphere.
    - Ability to work in other departments is very achievable if desired.
    - Good job to learn customer service, problem-solving, etc. (this was a job while I was in high school and college).
    - Will allow you to climb the chain of command.

    Cons

    - It's retail: you're going to deal with some annoying/ misunderstood customers.
    - Pay isn't spectacular, but as I said before, this was just a job to make a little extra money while I was in school.
    - Reviews can be tough.

    Advice to Management

    Try to not take on too many industries and stick to what you're good at.
