    I have been working at Target part-time

    Pros

    The pay is good; and its a safe environment. You get a 15 minute break, and a 30 minute lunch break if you work at least 6 hours.

    Cons

    One week you might have 8 hour shifts; and the next you can have 3 hour shifts. Hours/shifts are inconsistent. When they don't need you, your hours are cut without warning. Trying to call the store for any reason will take anywhere from 5-15 minutes to get someone on the phone (after being transferred many times). and most times you'll have to make multiple calls.

    Advice to Management

    Give at least a weeks notice if you know someone's hours are about to be drastically cut. Also, brief cashiers on deals that are going on before their shift; so they aren't learning about them when an upset guest/customer is asking why it wasn't applied and why they don't know about it.

    Pros

    Decent work environment.
    You have the freedom to do your work. You don't have a manager breathing down your neck telling you what to do your entire shift.
    The pay rate is higher than most companies.

    Cons

    Different managers will come in and decide different ways to do things that conflict with each other.
    Managers choose favorites.
    Part-time employees don't receive benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Don't choose favorites. Listen to your employees.

    I worked at Target part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay is pretty decent for an entry level retail job. The managers I had were pretty good about helping employees succeed. Our boss really tried to work around the employees schedule outside of work. You get to meet a lot of interesting people. If you have problems with someone, there are multiple ways of reporting it, and I always felt comfortable asking the managers for help. You also have a lot of opportunities to give back to the community.

    Cons

    The benefits are nothing to write home about. It can be stressful when it's extremely busy (for an introvert) and boring when it's quiet (for an extrovert). Sometimes it's hard to get hours. Your schedule is never predictable. Getting a promotion is not impossible, but can be difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Having the option of flexibility is great, but a little more consistency would also be nice. Also, more leadership training opportunities would be nice.

    Pros

    Well-taught management and opportunity to advance! Target is always pushing for their employees to advance and try new things. Team work is a staple working at Target, you are never alone!

    Cons

    Red shirt and Khaki pant combo. That’s the only Con to this store that I have experience thus far working here!

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Make us feel equal and work as a team and you’ll always prevail!

    Pros

    Works with my college schedule. That is the only reason I'm still here. I am actively looking for a replacement job.

    Cons

    Bad management and team lead accountability. I have gotten coached for being 30 minutes late on something my team lead is constantly hours late on, ave they don't even care to notice. Also this puts me even further behind on my own tasks since I have to finish hers. Then I'll possibly get in trouble if I don't finish her or my task.

    Advice to Management

    Adjust expectations according to the certain situation. Not just based on the average shifts variables.
