    Pros

    -Great management and coworkers
    -Training is pretty thorough so you're 100% comfortable with the job on your "real" first day
    -Opportunities to work in other departments

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

    Pros

    HR staff was nice and laid back. Easy work.

    Cons

    Was hired to work part time seasonal. 75% of the people who trained me, different person every day, had just barely got out of training themselves. The emphasis at the store I worked at was on tasks, greeting customers and providing assistance was never a priority or even taught. Most of the 'team leads' were pleasant to work with but there were a couple who seemed to get a kick out of berating, belittling and talking down to employees. One team lead wore a constant snarl, would even glare at customers who had the audacity to ask her something. The other team lead would target particular team members to harass and berate, especially older team members.

    Advice to Management

    Your store depends on the goodwill of customers, it would be to your advantage to stress the importance of good customer service versus putting tasks as the priority. You have some team leads that are horrific to work with, you might want to put them in positions more suited to their aggressively hostile personalities and away from the sales floor.
