    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    There are no pros for this employer.

    Cons

    All about timing and doesn't care about customers needs. Target puts money first, staff last.

    Advice to Management

    Need to hire a better managers to handle the store better. There are always room for improvements and need to adjust the break schedules (instead of two 15 minutes paid breaks and a 30 minutes meal break, should have an hour meal break and two paid 15 minutes break). Also, need to assist employees to help them move up ranks or honor the requests of employees to move into different department(s) to better fit their needs. In addition, need to make sure that the customers comes first, money last.

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

    Pros

    Great team
    Fun environment
    You get a workout (hah)
    Fast-paced
    Rewarding

    Cons

    Your work does not always feel validated or appreciated.
    Some people feel trapped - if you do not have good leadership or noticeable talent you can get stuck very easily in one position, for years, even when they keep telling you they'll move you up.
    You come home and you're exhausted.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make false promises you can't keep when people are trying to move up. Be genuine and honest with your team.
    Don't forget that people need regular appreciation, even when you have 200 employees working for you.
    Help out when you can.
    Set a better example for your team.
