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

    Pros

    - great pay
    - employee discount is phenomenal for me especially since I'm going off to school and I need to save as much money as possible during my off to college shopping

    Cons

    - there aren't that many opportunities for raise in pay and also not many benefits from the employee side for opening REDCards other than a free Starbucks for the first REDCard

    - not many opportunities to grow into other positions: I started as a cashier and came to self Checkout. I was told I'll be able to get off the sales floor by the end of June and have still not moved from Self Checkout

    Advice to Management

    Management is very helpful and caring of their employees, but look at the cons! Other than that, you're doing a great job in managing the store!

    I worked at Target full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers were AMAZING
    Asset protection very exciting daily

    Cons

    You will work EVERY HOLIDAY
    FAVORITISM highly prevalent
    UNPROFESSIONAL management staff
    Forced to jam Target Credit card down customers throats
    Not enough electronic equipment necessary to do job
    Changes will come without warning like store hours! You'll come to work and find out we close an hour later and nothing we can do about it!

    Advice to Management

    Unethical to coach/discipline employees and they not get copies of paperwork.
    Tyranny will never encourage loyalty
    Learned many undesired/questionable methods to achieve results from STL.
