    I worked at Target part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly Environment and Staff. Felt comfortable working there as if I was there with my family.

    Cons

    Unrealistic Expectations and they overwork you. I was specifically hired to work as a cashier but on any given day, I would be stocking shelves, rearranging inventory in the back, or even bringing in shopping carts, none of which was part of my obligations.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of making sure you have enough employees working each shift. Having only one employee to work carts makes it a burden for us when he doesn't show up for a whole week.

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

    Pros

    None really. Able to see merchandise before customers, hiring for the holidays. 15 minute breaks, snacks in the break room.

    Cons

    Lack of hours, 10% discount only if you have target debit, Target credit or cash. Also you cannot use discount on baby products or groceries. No real training, paid every two weeks. You have to supply your own red shirt.

    Advice to Management

    Up the discount! You want us to slave and go over and beyond for customers but most employees can’t afford to shop there. No way employees should have a work schedule for 8 hours a week.

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

    Pros

    The 10% off comes in handy, and coworkers are pretty good people. None of the tasks are difficult.

    Cons

    Even though none of the tasks are difficult, most managers expect you to get a certain amount done within a certain time frame then they'll continue to add tasks they want you to complete before your shift is over. Most of the time the amount of work they want you to complete is unreasonable considering the time period you have.

    I'm not sure why, but theyre consistently understaffed. You might find yourself helping a coworker in an area you're unfamiliar in because that coworker is busy with another customer. This wouldnt be a bad thing if these times would be accounted for when it comes to other tasks you need to complete.

    Advice to Management

    Be reasonable about the number of tasks you give worker.
    If possible, find a way to schedule more people trained in area's that are the busiest.
