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

    Pros

    I had another review on here but I thought I should add more. I will admit that there seems to be quite a few opportunities within the store...but only if you really push for it. The pay is now at 12 an hour which I think is great for retail. From my experience, the particular Target I work at has a management team that treats you like a family. Most of them anyway. Target is a fun atmosphere.

    Cons

    This is what I really wanted to add. Schedule more cashiers!! I'm a cashier and I normally am up at guest service but I'm at the regular checklanes sometimes too. But they shouldnt have to be calling someone up for code thirty times a day. Its ridiculous. I also think it's ridiculous how people on the sales floor make more than cashiers...I wont even get into why but its madness if you ask me. Sometimes, working so hard there is unrewarding. Of course, I work to get a paycheck but when they have you doing 10 different things in one day ...I know for sure I'm one of the hardest working, fastest cashiers they have. The constant "G" after every transaction proves it. Yet and still I get no recognition. They have employee of the month or whatever and in my year of being there I've yet to receive anything like it. Coworkers acknowledge each other more than management. I'm thinking about leaving that place and finding something better until I go back to school.

    Advice to Management

    Schedule more cashiers. Give more hours. 13 hours a week is chump change. Acknowledge those who keep your store running.

    Pros

    Pay was great, got pretty good hours, had amazing coworkers

    Terrible with you having another job/ life outside of target, management was terrible, discount isn't anything

    People get sick and have lives outside of work, understand that and we can't always drop everything to go to work

    Pros

    Some targets may differ but the one I am at treat their employees like garbage! You get yelled at for talking when your being trained. Also no one listens to your concerns.

    Cons

    Everything is bad except the pay

    I have been working at Target part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Awesome coworkers, great pay (now), and 10% discount, really flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    Sometimes guests are rude, when the pay was bumped to $12 experience was not well reflected in review raises, hours tend to be low 9-10 months out of the year (it helps to work in more than 1 work center though)

    Advice to Management

    Team leads are fantastic, no complaints. But to the company as a whole, many long time team members feel defeated by the latest pay raise.
