    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    Friendly, positive atmosphere where they enjoy working with one another. I enjoyed working here over the holidays and I think that they felt I was a valuable employee. Everyone I came in contact with was just terrific!

    Cons

    Call-in system at the store I worked at wasn’t ideal. Felt like my team didn’t find out/know when I was out due to talking to different people from different departments who maybe were less concerned when it wasn’t someone calling in from their department.

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

    Pros

    Pay, TM's, TL's, LOD's, AP/APTL's, Sr. TL's, and STL's, Fun Work Environment, Fast Paced, Team Driven, Benefits, and Special/Holiday Pay.

    Cons

    Promised Hours, Lack of Communication with HR's/ETL-HR's and Some LOD's, Some Move Up Quicker Than Others, Unrealistic Expectations/Regulations For TM's to Follow, Lack of TM's in Some Departments.

    Advice to Management

    More hours are needed for TM's. If I have a question or concern I would like it to be a matter that is fulfilled right away, especially problems with scheduling or personal matter with other TM's. They are slow, and sometimes they need to reminded more than once. I've worked at two different Target store locations and it seems to be a trending issue. Not a big deal, but defiantly a problem when given to a ETL-HR or LOD short notice. One thing that really bothers me is that I've been with this company for almost a year now. Some TM's are new and received raises and I haven't. Keep in mind I am no harder working than they are, but I've also cross-trained to five different work centers in the store from Hardlines (Sales Floor), Consumables/Grocery (Sales Floor), Electronics/Toys (Sales Floor), did some Fitting Room and Softlines (Sales Floor), Flex. Full./Ship-From-Store (Backroom), Guest Service (Front End), Guest Service-Cashier (Front End), and Guest Service-Cart Attendant (Front End) and have received no added wage increase other than the minimum wage increase at Target ($11.00/hourly).

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

    Pros

    Scheduling time off and making usre you had enough hours was really easy, especially for a high school student. They have a Leave of Absence, so if you have to take time off for college, you can come back and get hours for your break.

    Cons

    Cashier was exhausting, they need to make the shifts shorter, allow water bottles, and/or add time to just walk around and leave your position for a second. The emphasis on RedCards was absurd, especially if you live in a small town -- everyone in the small town has already decided at this point whether they want one or not, stop trying to shove it down their throats.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in employees who's sole purpose is to stand in for cashiers every hour so they can take a lap around the store to allow them to regroup and be better able to greet customers.

    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    Team members would nice and easy to get along with. Learned a lot from them as well.

    Cons

    Some days were very unorganized and it was as if management had no idea what they were doing. Also on certain days we would be really understaffed. The scheduling had no order in it sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Get a bit more organized.
