    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    The pay is decent for an entry level position, and there is ample opportunity to earn overtime for holidays and seasonal sales.

    Cons

    Very boring work day. You will constantly be waiting for the moment you clock out.

    I worked at Target

    Pros

    They're diligent with giving everyone breaks in a timely manner.

    Cons

    The management has conflicting views on what should be done, which makes getting the job done difficult. After the recession, they eliminated many positions and forced the workers to complete several unrelated jobs at the same time. They didn't properly train their employees and don't give enough hours to do so. They basically set you up to fail.

    I have been working at Target part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I work with some very good people. The management has been impressed with my hard work, and has been very god about making sure new hires are brought up to speed quickly. I've had plenty of opportunity to learn new skills, and it's not a stressful environment by and large.

    Cons

    Scheduling lately has tried to push close-to-open shifts on my department annoyingly often; we have enough people to re-schedule and avoid them most of the time, but when it does happen I spend those nights and the following mornings with low morale.

    I have been working at Target full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I've met some pretty awesome people both fellow employees and some of the guest that come into the store

    Cons

    The retail schedule can grow tiresome after a while. While most families are winding down spending time with each other around the holidays you spend more time away from family.

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

    Pros

    15% discount, opportunities for cross-training, supportive coworkers, good starting salary, fun recognition

    Cons

    Cheated out of vacation pay, non-existent worklife balance, inefficient training, and abusive. Senior management expected too much work out of people and didn't do anything to compensate for under staffing.
