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

    Pros

    Great environment, everyone is nice
    Great perks when you get a REDCard
    Nice employee discount
    Treats employees fairly
    Good pay
    Easy to get someone to take your shift or to pick up extra shifts

    Cons

    Sometimes hard on us to get REDCards, becomes overbearing. I can't help it if no one wants to get one.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up on REDCards, it's to the point where I am disappointed if they already have one and it shouldn't be that way.

    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    I initially was brought on as a seasonal worker. They management staff decided to keep me after the holidays had ended. I worked at a smaller target with a close group of employees. I can honestly say that the environment was very team oriented. There wasn't a single person I worked with that I felt wouldn't go out of their way to help a fellow employee. The management, for the most part, was quite supportive as well (with the exception of a few).

    Cons

    They will work you to the absolute max. It was not uncommon to work 30+ hours a week despite only being part time.. although they would always make sure to cut you right before you hit 40 hours so you couldn't benefit from working overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Almost all of the management were wonderful people that had the best interest of the team and the store in mind. If I could offer any advice, it would be to be more direct with subordinates. It was not uncommon to find out through the grapevine that they weren't supportive of something you had done or were asking for as opposed to speaking directly to the person in question. A more direct approach would be more effective. Also, have more than one person on the sales floor at a time and more than two cashiers on clock at the same time. As a previous sales for team member, its impossible to be two places at once (on the cashier and on he sales floor) Don't be scared to have people on the clock.

    I worked at Target full-time

    Pros

    Peers are great to work with.

    Cons

    Management, etl and hr were not trained properly for their job. They basically give it to anyone with a degree. Lots of sexist favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Try being more receptive to employee suggestions especially those who have been there longer.

    Managers were great and I cross-trained in many different areas.

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

    Pros

    Great employee benefits. Very high tech, efficient systems in place in all areas. Fun place to work.

    Cons

    Upper management was not interactive enough with the employees. Great training was available but were rarely able to use it because of payroll constraints.

    Advice to Management

    Greet all of your associates....they are just as important as your customers. Don't be threatened by those who want to move up and better themselves. Allow associates the time to take online training courses to insure they get the necessary training for their position.

    Pros

    My Management Tries very hard not to micromanage the team
    Team Members are fun and the work is very challenging... I love the challenge
    Lots of positions to move around to, you never get bored!

    Creative and innovative company with excellent products and service
    The customer ALWAYS is right and ALWAYS comes first, does not matter if you are cleaning crew... you stop and you take care of that customer!

    Cons

    long hours when other team members do not show up
    Extremely hard work...you will be most sore and miserable on days off, working six days straight your body just adapts to the torture
    Almost no benefits...

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, you put your heart and soul into your job and it shows!
