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

    Pros

    - Many co-workers were also college students and a similiar age as me. It was easy to connect with them

    - Manager in charge of backroom was strict but reasonable

    -10% company discount card (must pay in cash to use discount)

    - Fast paced/ easy to keep busy. Usually surprised at how fast my 8 hours went

    As long as you are willing to learn, you will definitely be shown the ropes and get used to the job after 2-3 weeks.

    Cons

    - on bottom of corporate chain. I felt like I was easily expendable (and I was).

    Advice to Management

    None

    I have been working at Target part-time

    Pros

    Great coworkers and STL/ETLs. It can be a fun place to work.

    Cons

    New team members being hired at almost the same pay as me to "stay competitive but no adjustments if you were already at that level. Nothing added.

    Advice to Management

    There has to be a way to not badger the team members to get red cards.
    If you do like other retailers instead of needing a check for the debit card make it possible to just use their ID and their bank debit card to get a Target debit card.

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

    Pros

    Good environment. It's a good place to work if you like interacting with customers. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Long holiday hours. I had certain problems with members of management. Not much of an ability to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Look for the good workers or contributors to the company and hand out more promotions. Spread out hours more evenly.

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

    Pros

    Most of the management and staff are quite friendly and helpful. Break rooms are spacious and conveniently equipped with refrigerators, WiFi and a television with cable. There is a braod variety of equipment and tools to make the process of completing various tasks more efficient. The employee discount is a nice perk to working at Target as well.

    Cons

    Tasks are not properly prioritized in accordance with the workflow. Consequently, the workload frequently exceeds the manpower available to complete it. This imbalance is often resolved by reassigning tasks to team members (you'll be asked to do someone else's job). Any questions or concerns you may raise regarding such reassignment will most likely be met with the uniform response of "don't worry about it."

    Pros

    Great for people who never had a job before. This company can help build customer service skills.

    Cons

    Some of the LODs did not agree with each other. It was hard to work under that sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    RedCard quotas?

    Pros

    Not a very mentally challenging or strenuous job
    10% Employee Discount
    Easy promotion
    Everyone works as a team
    Friendly co-workers
    Very cool Team leads

    Cons

    LODs stuck on their 'high-horse,' yet...they work at Target. Lol.
    Over-emphasis on the smallest details on zone (making items on shelves look good
    Zoning In consistencies styles and expectations vary by LOD (Leader of the Day)
    "Can I Help You Find Something?"
    Constant calls for "Guest First" (going up to cashiers) and Inability of cashiers to handle lines of customers themselves
    Calling customers "Guests"
    Team politics
    Guest service work ethic; basically relax all day
    Inequalities between Day and Closing Shift- Daytime staff get to do nothing all day (has even been admitted by daytime staff and Team Leads)
    Closing staff expected to finish entire store perfectly, Daytime can leave store a mess for night shift...
    Closing staff released at inconsistent times - scheduled until 1145, stay until 1 a.m, 12:10am, etc. (not for the full-time student)
    Low interaction with customers- simply answer simple direction questions like a robot

    Advice to Management

    Team Leads are great, because they can relate to the sales floor team.
    LODs, not only do you ask too much at times, acting like a *(censored) is not a requirement, and does not earn respect.
