    Pros

    Friendly staff and Team Leaders, Fast paced environment, Flexible hours.

    Cons

    During slow times of the year (Non-holiday times) hours can be cut. Short amount of time, especially during night shifts, to get everything done with an overwhelming amount to finish.

    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    Team members would nice and easy to get along with. Learned a lot from them as well.

    Cons

    Some days were very unorganized and it was as if management had no idea what they were doing. Also on certain days we would be really understaffed. The scheduling had no order in it sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Get a bit more organized.

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

    Pros

    The people make the job easy to go through. Built great relationship.

    Cons

    Management is horrible. No communication and way too much ego. They do not build relationships with the lower team members and makes them feel unappreciated when some members work really hard.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    - Develop communication skills
    - Meet a few friendly team members

    Cons

    - Cut hours drastically
    - Overworked (ESPECIALLY in electronics)
    - LODs (Managers) are too busy to care about helping their employees and look down on them instead of picking them up
    -Breaks and lunch times are just off

    Advice to Management

    ACTUALLY. LISTEN. TO. YOUR. EMPLOYEES. They're not superheroes, they're human beings with lives. If you do not like the position you are in, then leave. No one is forcing you to be there, but at the same time, do not abuse your power and spend personal time doing other things instead of helping the store AND the company.

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

    Pros

    Better than average pay
    Friendly team members
    The good team leads are GREAT
    Supportive HR (at my store at least)

    Cons

    Sometimes under staffed
    Management has scheduling issues
    Some team leads are positively incompetent
    Cross training is necessary to get a consistent 40

    Advice to Management

    Increase your payroll. It’s better to be slightly over scheduled than to work your team into the ground.
    There will be less turnover if the good team members don’t feel like they’re forced to do EVERYTHING.

    Pros

    A large amount of great Team Leads
    Fun and friendly co-workers

    Cons

    Lack of hours after the holiday season is over. Went from 50 a week to 15.
    There are times when the store manager has been less than respectful of both myself and various other team members.
    I constantly have to perform tasks that were not part of my job description (I am in electronics and I have to zone toys. A lot.) Corporate doesn't want Electronics team members to zone toys so that we are always available for guests, but my local store owner doesn't care and continues to overwork electronics team members.

    Advice to Management

    Let your employees have water while they work. Its not the end of the world.
