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

    Management is great and training is very thorough with continuous training throughout. Hours are flexible.

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

    Pros

    Very good competitive pay. Company contracts to make minimum wage $15 by 2020.

    Cons

    Management doesn't care about your wellbeing. If you do your job well they will add everyone else's job. If you work another position at any time, and that position gets higher pay, you will NOT receive it. You get payed what your contracted position states.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees health. Share extra work equally among employees.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible Hours
    Coworkers are fantastic
    ETL''s are wonderful

    Cons

    As a GSA, depending on how soon a team lead position opens up, could be very soon and this con would be worth it in the end but if you would be waiting for a position to open for a very long time this is important; you will be doing a team leads' job for the pay that is the same of someone who is walking in for the very first time to work at target. It is very discouraging.

    I worked at Target (More than a year)

    Pros

    Left alone pretty much of the time.

    Cons

    Heavy workload with little assistance from management. Bad pay, dead-end job.

    Advice to Management

    Don't schedule people to do the night shift and then the next opener. It's stupid.

    Pros

    Good pay, good coworkers

    Cons

    Management is super corrupt and unfair, they pick favorites, the job in beauty sucks. You don’t get to sell anything because you’re too busy pushing so much truck all the time and it’s the only thing they care about.

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

    Pros

    Good starting pay, discount, you know about the good online returns first though you have to wait a half hour to buy. Plenty of opportunity to learn new positions and bounce around. Part time benefits. Working part time does not mean you’re restricted to part time hours, it just means you’re hourly, not salary.

    Cons

    My store gets crazy busy at back to school and it can be stressful. Zoning is the worst and it makes no sense to do it at night when the overnight team is going to stock right over it and customers ruin the zone as we do it. We should zone in the morning.

    Advice to Management

    The zoning issue for sure. Continue to support your employees and gain their loyalty. For the most part, I have no complaints.

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

    Pros

    I guess the pay is better than other retail stores. I started at $11.25/hr and I'm up to $12.50/hr in less than a year. They have given me time off when I requested it.

    Cons

    A few members of the management team are extremely condescending and disrespectful when they interact with employees. They are often out of walkies and mydevices, and box cutters, which are all key tools needed to do your job.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the condescending managers or retrain them to treat all employees with respect.
