    Left alone pretty much of the time.

    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.

    Cons

    The discount isn't amazing

    Pros

    -good pay for easy work

    Cons

    -HR doesn't care about availability, will schedule you at times you say you can't work
    - Unreasonably high expectations regarding the amount of time it would take to get certain tasks done

    Pros

    Ten percent discount on merchandise

    Cons

    Only a ten percent discount on merchandise

    Advice to Management

    Stop the absolutely horrendous turnover rates by paying people a living wage.

    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.
