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

    Pros

    Great pay, friendly coworkers, good hours, able to cross train,

    Cons

    Transfering stores is hard, and if you do the team leads treat you differently because they didn't train you and therefore feel threatened
    HR cares more about company than employees
    When you ask for electronically request less hours it gets "erased" and when you ask HR they tell you to do it electronically

    I worked at Target as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - You meet new people and have great time working with them.

    - Positive attitude = great morale in the workforce.

    - There's a good chance that making a good impression in getting the job done through tough times may get you to keep your job longer if you work seasonal.

    Cons

    - Only encounter one manager that wasn't all friendly and most of the time force employees to work overtime if the team doesn't meet the deadline.

    - As times goes by, people who worked in the same seasonal position as you may get reassign to a different job position when the number of employees start to plummet after holidays are done.

    - When employees get fired or resign in the job position you are currently in, you may be force to pick up the slack and work overtime more often.

    Pros

    Pay isn't bad but also not great.

    Cons

    Management expects you to get tons of work done but keeps you understaffed. Incredibly stressful and not good for your body. I ended up at urgent care because of the strain the job put on my body. Management does not expect you to take breaks.

    Advice to Management

    Hiring enough team members would really help.

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

    Pros

    You get cross-trained in most of everything, minus select area’s, unless you WANT to learn those areas or take up a shift for them. Cashiering is always fun (for me at least) and guest interaction is always awesome, and good to keep up with for future experiences and job.

    Cons

    Very tiring of the body, feet hurt every day from standing/walking, but that’s normal in the retail world.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key. Please work with your employee’s about scheduling, conflicts, and always keep in touch and see how their doing. It means more than you thing. Be a LEADER, not a boss.

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

    Pros

    Dental is good, and they do work well around college school schedules.

    Cons

    They expect their team members to bend over backwards, and stress themselves out to the point of exhaustion for the company. there used to be individual teams that all worked together to get things done, now each team member has to finish everything alone. AND believe it or not, you actually get in trouble for helping others without permission. Also there is no room for growth. you come in as team member you work 50 years, and retire a team member.

    Advice to Management

    Do better. Remember where you came from.
