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

    Pros

    Target was nice to work at. You could always expect a raise at the time of your yearly review and the company continued to raise their base pay which was nice. My co workers were absolutely great. I felt like I had a true work family. You do get PTO/paid vacation time.

    Cons

    The scheduling is very inconsistent. You could have almost a full 40 hours one week and the next week you could have 21 hours. You maybe close at 12:30am Saturday and be scheduled to open at 8am Sunday morning. Never know what your schedule will be. It is hard to get promoted. At my store it seemed like if they liked you at the position you had, they kept you there. Little “promote from within” and you may be fired on the spot due to performance even though the training is lackluster.

    Advice to Management

    It is possible to provide employees with a set schedule or maybe even a rotation of schedules. Warn people before cutting hours. Do not promise something you can’t uphold. Was once told I was going to be GSA soon, and that never happened.

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

    Pros

    Pay is excellent. The company has strong values and does stick to them. Also, there is a lot of room for growth and promotion.

    Cons

    They will work you like a dog. They say 50-52 hours per week, but often you will work 60-70. Also, if you don't have a strong STL (store manager) then you will receive little to no support from upper management. Further, though there are lots of levels you can promote to, you will have to wait a very long time. Some ETL's wait over twenty years for promotion. They lead you to believe you will have a 1.5 year rotation in each position, but often its much longer.

    Advice to Management

    Support leaders in stores that are failing.

    I worked at Target part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    15 minute paid breaks
    Starts at $10/hr
    Always free food/drinks in break room

    Cons

    Managers are not organized/slack at job.
    HR department did not let me fill out my tax information after multiple times of asking them. They would deduct money that was not accounted for out of my pay checks, then would act like nothing is happening when I confront them about it.
    All phone calls to the store go back to the fitting room so whoever is working back there doesn’t get much work done.
    There isn’t enough mydevices for every employee on the sales floor.
    Discount is horrible, you can’t even use it when using debit or credit card.
    Managers never showed up to train me.
    No room to move up

    Advice to Management

    Be more organized

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

    Pros

    My team and the employee discount. Full time position with benefits and paid time off. Flexible schedule with some weekends off.

    Cons

    The holiday hours.Low pay, never enough payroll hours. Store STL played favorites and promotions were given to the favorites not the best candidate.

    Advice to Management

    Value your long-term employees don’t push them out the door because we’re too expensive.
