    Most of the other team members are friendly and good to work with.

    Cons

    Favoritism

    RAISE all team members' wages by the same percentage you raised minimum wage!! After more than 4 years of service, I am working for the same rate of pay as someone that started today!

    Store team lead ignores HR hotline calls and never even addressed the person that created hostile environment

    Examine new hires, management and sales floor, more closely.

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

    Pros

    Majority of the employees are nice and helpful. The pay is better than most retail jobs. Discount is 10% with an additional 20% off fresh fruit/vegetables and their simply balances brand. If you pay with your red card you get 5% off as well. The job is really easy.

    Cons

    They constantly schedule people more hours than what they were hired for, they also schedule you on days you are not available and expect you to cover the shifts. Very little training. The rules don't apply to everyone and the management plays favorites. You are not supposed to have drinks in the store however most employees have one but only some people get a talking to about while the person next to them gets nothing said to them.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to employee's availability and hours requested. Give more training and the processes of the store. Treat everyone the same, your corporate policy is to treat everyone fairly but the store management does not.

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

    Pros

    Meet great people. Good customer service experience. Learn to deal with not so nice people. Decent pay for someone in high school.

    Cons

    Target cannot decide if it wants to be a big box store or some kind of specialty boutique type shop.

    Advice to Management

    Mandating bachelor's degree to be ETL is ridiculous.

    Pros

    Will teach you the basic skills required of most jobs in some form or another
    Will usually get you working in a team environment.

    Cons

    There are times that the work does not justify the cost.
    In some situations, its very easy to be overworked.

    I worked at Target part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary is somewhat competitive for entry-level retail position. Friendly environment. Store was flexible with availability to a reasonable extent.

    Cons

    They push their employees to get guests to sign up for the RedCard to a near-psychotic extent. It's literally all they care about. Store Management mostly consists of 23 year old cheerleaders with non-business degrees. I wish I were joking.

    Advice to Management

    Advertise your RedCard in the Store Ad and on TV to inform the public of what it is instead of burdening cashiers to do that. Hire more professional ETLs

    Pros

    Very flexible scheduling and quick hiring.

    Cons

    Training is "train yourself as you go".
    Their philosophy is you were hired for a position, but we will have you do other team members jobs too.
    As an AP guy, I was made to be the cart attendant and the trash!

    Advice to Management

    Do know the paperwork you are giving people.
    Be proactive when presented with internal issues.

    Pros

    The pay was pretty good for an internship at $17.50 an hour. Store and district management were very friendly and welcoming and they made it seem like they were excited to have you in the store. Discount was nice too.

    Cons

    Late nights and early mornings, but thats the norm in retail management
