      Neutral Outlook

      I worked at Target full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Excellent Pay, especially for retail. Ability to create your own schedule.

      Cons

      STL can be overbearing and demanding without understanding the rules my position operated under. Benefits are terrible, way too expensive to be worth it. Obviously it is retail, so hours can suck during the holiday season and random product launches that they significantly overestimate guest turnout.

      Advice to Management

      Stop changing policies and tactics so frequently, it takes time to move cameras and implement new strategies yet management changes their minds way too often. STL's and ETL's need to understand what our job entails and what rules govern our position.

      Former Employee - Starbucks Barista At Target in Mayfield, OH
      Recommends

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

      Pros

      The people were largely great. I met a number of nice people and most customers were nice. The money was pretty good.

      Cons

      The downside of working as a Target Starbucks Barista is that you make more money to basically be treated like a second-class citizen. The Starbucks department is pushed to do better constantly, but when no one in management has ever worked at a Starbucks it makes things extremely difficult. Our manager would have us do things that were part of his/her job regularly. He/she was also managing like three departments at...

      Advice to Management

      Please just hire a Starbucks team lead. It would pay off tenfold.

      I worked at Target full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      As a place of employment for young people just beginning their working careers, TARGET provides those of ages 16 through 21 an excellent opportunity to hone their work ethic. If you find yourself working at TARGET from ages 22 through 29, it'll provide a secure way to save for the future. If you find yourself working at TARGET after the age of 61, that's good, because it'll provide you with additional income...

      Cons

      The moment an employee has worked at TARGET more than a few years, your weekly scheduled hours get cut in half and you lose your employer paid health insurance. TARGET does not value diligence, accuracy, or attendance. TARGET only cares about the speed of their employee, not their accuracy. Obviously, none of TARGET's corporate leadership has any knowledge concerning the NFL's contest of 'PUNT, PASS, &...

      Advice to Management

      TARGET Corporate should worry more about accuracy than speed. An employee's record speed, when accomplishing all his tasks within TARGET's falsely configure and unrealistically enforced push times, by ignoring the accuracy component of his job description, becomes worthless when his accuracy drops to 40%. TARGET should value good attendance, not just focus on (and ignore) bad attendance.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Target full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      The starting pay is very good and after only a few short months, I got promoted to a new position.

      Cons

      My new position, although it has a lot more responsibility which I like, there is no pay increase at all.

      Advice to Management

      If somebody is required to do a million more tasks and take on a lot more responsibility than the other workers and is often times required to come in much earlier than the rest of the team, they should have some sort of pay increase.

      Neutral Outlook
      No opinion of CEO

      I have been working at Target part-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

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

      Cons

      Favoritism Lack of scheduled hours Sr. Mgmt. will not address problems. Corporate's decision to raise minimum wage was a slap in the face of current employees.

      Advice to Management

      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!
