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

    Pros

    Fun work environment.
    Often offer perks like food for employee breaks, games to win prizes, etc.
    Lots of opportunity for promotion.
    Additional 20% employee discount on wellness items such as produce, organic food, and fitness equipment.
    Flexible with day off requests.

    Cons

    Occasional lack of communication.
    Expectations not always clear.
    Expectations not always realistic (heavily zone and reshop 2-3 departments alone in 2-3 hours)
    If you're a good employee, you will get more and more workload. Not always a bad thing, but can often lead to stressful shifts.
    Oversights in scheduling can lead to 7+ days of work in a row.

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

    Pros

    Literally, the only pro I can give is that SOME of my coworkers are extremely kind.

    Cons

    • The LOD and GSTL only cares about you if you get a Redcard. Otherwise, you're nothing to them.
    • If you call off sick, they do not care to wish you better. I called off sick with a head cold and I was hung up on after calling off. It was extremely rude. This happens with every LOD who I tell I have to call off to.
    • Cashiers are the least cared about even though we stop theft at the front of the store and insure all things are checked out and sketchy coupons aren't used.
    • If you work at the self checkout, you'll find yourself standing for 8 hours watching guests purchase their things correctly. There is no stool or designated place for the self check out team member.
    • When I started working at Target, I was seasonal but when my seasonal position was over, they never contacted me to ask if I would like to continue working for them they just kept me on the schedule.
    • The target I worked for always repeatedly asked me to stay over my regular shift hours. They would put me on the spot. For example, if my shift were from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. they would ask me to stay another hour.

    Advice to Management

    Knightvest management would be to Consider your team members/employees more than you do the money your store makes in a day.
    We help you make that money and we deserve respect.

    Co-workers in this particular store are great.

    I have been working at Target part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There's always something new and exciting going on. Target really does value diversity in its employees. Because it is a big corporation, Target tries to treat everyone fairly and respectfully.

    Cons

    Sometimes individual store leaders bring their own personality flaws to the store, and this negatively impacts employee morale and the general treatment of workers.

    Advice to Management

    Be open-minded, treat everyone with respect, and keep lines of communication open. You may think the "little guy" doesn't matter much in store operation, but everything they do , every day helps to create either a culture of cooperation and enthusiasm, or an attitude of apathy. It's up to the leaders to set the tone by caring about employees, and treating them as the valuable resource they are.
