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

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

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, *some* upper-management are respectful or even fun to be around.

    Good pay relative to other retailers.

    Cons

    Most of the upper-management are way too serious about their job and follow the "Target Sales Guidelines" to the letter. Because of this, creativity is floundered and disruptive guests, even guests who steal, are allowed to completely walk all over team members.

    Hours are inconsistent. I applied for part-time in Electronics and requested 20-25 hours. I got 40 hours a week when I first started, and now I'm getting anywhere from 7 to 15 at the most. If you have bills to pay, this isn't the job for you.

    Most guests are jerks, plain and simple.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees more freedom and allow them to ignore disruptive guests.

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

    Pros

    Discount (10%), Diverse environment, Breaks, Advancement (if management likes you)

    Cons

    Lack of training, pay, and discrimination towards employees (my experience)

    Advice to Management

    Be a better place for employees. Discrimination and picking on employees-going as far as firing for issues beyond their control is not acceptable.

    Based strictly on my experience/location: Don’t be discriminatory towards anyone. Understanding that when provided specific accommodation requests from a disabled worker they are not “suggestions”. Understand that one person can ruin the whole “equality” work thing and do something about it especially if it’s upper management. You can NOT fire a disabled worker for issues related to a lack of accommodation and understanding. In short, be what you say you are-employees expect more but they get less.

    Keep up pizza days and food. These are good incentives and people appreciate the thought.

    Pros

    Working together as a Team
    Great Pay

    Quick advancement in the company

    Sometimes the management can seem judgemental.

    Be more "behind-the-scenes" in your judgments.

    Pros

    * Flexible schedule
    * Fair pay compensation

    Cons

    Team Leaders and upper-level team managers are unorganized. Often rude and condescending when directing team members to their daily roles. I don't believe all Targets are this way, just the location I was employed at for three years.

    Pros

    Very inclusive and safe working environment

    Cons

    Be prepared to be hassled about Red Cards non-stop, almost no matter what department you work in. If you come into contact with a customer, get them to sign up for a Red Card, or else. This was particularly difficult in some departments with regular customers who either already had one or you knew didn't want one. Management are constantly on the walkies talking about Red Cards and talking down on departments and areas that weren't making their ridiculous daily goals.
