    I worked at Target part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people I worked with became my best friends. They were truly amazing people and I miss them dearly. You become like a family when working here. The pay was above average and it was easy to get a raise, although it was only a couple cents it still helped. Some of the managers were great and others weren't. I have blue hair and a nose ring, and was always encouraged to be myself, and my GSL, GSA, and store leaders including...

    Cons

    I had one terrible GSL, and always dreaded working with her. But that comes with the job. My store was one that got closed, and the entire town protested but because the corp was so greedy they told the town too bad and 73 people lost their jobs. That doesn't sound like a lot, but it was a small town and not a lot of opportunities for other jobs without traveling an hour. I got denied to transfer when I was going to move...

    I worked at Target part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent people to work with, Management will work with you if you need something addressed

    Cons

    A lot of bending and crouching when zoning or facing

    Advice to Management

    Stay on track to paying us $15/hour and you'll have the most knowledgeable, friendliest employees in the industry.

    I worked at Target full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The team environment can be great, if you are fortunate enough to work for a leader who is truly development minded. Decent benefits for full time employees and opportunity to advance in the right situation.

    Cons

    Resources and communication can be somewhat limited. Often middle managers are held accountable for the short comings of those higher up the food chain. As it is with all businesses.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in leadership and development training that develops emotional intelligence and self-awareness with district level follow up. This will standardize culture company-wide and solve some of the inconsistency issues seen from store-to-store and district to district.

    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    Team members are quite friendly and everyone is willing to help you out. Pay was good since they raised their minimum to $11 an hour.

    Cons

    Was hired going into seasonal as they were hiring for regular and seasonal. Told hr manager I was looking for a more well adjusted job and if this was only seasonal than I wouldn't of bothered but she said if I'm on time and no call offs and do my work I'll be kept. Well got a call mid January they no longer needed me and the seasonal time is over and they have no more hours to give. They will tell you whatever you want...

    Advice to Management

    Quit deceiving people at the interview and telling them a bunch of lies tgat you don't intend to live up too. If you can't be honest than keep your mouth shut and don't lead people on. We can't work cashiering as back up and do pulls and zone and help customers all at one time. One or the other

    I worked at Target full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, discount, clean working environment, coworkers to talk to.

    Cons

    The food safety was subpar - I wouldn't eat there after seeing the kitchen and how things are made. The amount of grease and disgusting state of the slushy mixer, popcorn maker and hot dog grill make me never want to eat those things again.

    Advice to Management

    Have a professional cafe member run it, not teenagers who don't care.

    I worked at Target

    Pros

    Continuing Education Fun Work Nice Discounts Can be a fun work environment

    Cons

    Commissions were very low in comparison to the sales Hours were heavily dictated by sale numbers Managers were not the best fit for the position

    Advice to Management

    Understand that when the hours allowed are so heavily cut due to performance, the performance itself is hurt because of being so understaffed. Managers should have regular sit down meetings with the District Managers

    I worked at Target part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The discount was OK, but in order to maximize it, you have to sign up for their credit card.

    Cons

    -Management was extremely cliquey as were all departments, at least at my store. I was 19, working 35-ish hours a week for almost a year and never felt welcome. HR never tried to help with any issues, it was all just a kick-the-can mentality in that store. - Upper management was the most disingenuous group of human beings I've ever seen out of any place I've ever worked. I felt like I got the runaround from all of them...

    Advice to Management

    Quit hiring or allowing pandering, heartless robots to be in charge and allow an infectious, poisonous work environment to exist. I've never worked in a place that is 1/10 as bad as my time was at Target. You're just another heartless, large corporation that vaguely hides their disdain for the majority. I honestly don't believe there are enough words in existence to describe my hatred of the time I spent working for this...
