    I worked at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic team members who really want to provide the best service possible.

    Cons

    Lack of respect for experienced employees. Too many interns and leaders who have no experience in real world situations attempting to lead without the tools necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and fair to all.

    Pros

    Getting time off is typically easy and the pay isn't horrible (though it's barely "competitive"). Most of the people are friendly and clean - the behavior is considerably more professional than Walmart.

    Cons

    Performance-based yearly reviews are based nearly completely on how many credit cards you sell - not the rest of your performance. As a cashier than is friendly, clean, checks customers out quickly, and bags items properly, I have received $0.19 in performance raises in three years.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on customer service rather than attempting to sell credit cards. They interfere with how cashiers do their job and affects performance reviews in a negative way.

    Pros

    10% discount on everything in store.

    Flexible schedule

    Easy to take time off

    Co-workers are fun to work with and make working at Target easier.

    Attractive benefits package

    Cons

    Incompetence of senior management. Management rotates in and out of store regularly and each new manager doesn't know what to do.

    Little to no recognition for performing above and beyond expectations, but will hound you every mistake you make.

    Pay is the same as every other box retailer, if not lower, but Target did coin the phrase "expect more, pay less."

    Raises are a joke, and only occur once a year. Most hourly team members get a raise of less than $.10 for their efforts.

    Little to no promotional opportunities unless you tell the STL you want to be with Target for life.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your hourly team members, we are the bread and butter of making the store successful. If we voice a concern, don't take it as a personal attack, instead try to work towards fixing it. Take the time to work with guests instead of the few times a day when you just have to talk to a demanding one at the check lanes. Don't expect every team member to be an outstanding performer when they are making $7/hr and you're rolling in the cooperate bonus that the $7/hr person basically got for you by pushing sales and credit cards.
