    I worked at Target full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    My coworkers were amazing.

    Cons

    The pay was crap. I worked in multiple departments and could do almost anything there and yet I still got minimum wage. They also had me doing managers duties and not getting the pay managers receive.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better and pay the hard workers what they deserve.

    Former Employee - Front End Cashier in Canton, MI
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    The team itself is wonderful and very friendly; I very much enjoyed my co-workers company.

    Cons

    Front-end manager is very difficult to work with; very condescending and undermining. Those who get by seem to do so by kissing butt. We lost our ability to have water at our stations; working at a dry store where you talk to customers all day without access to water sucked.
