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

    Pros

    I had another review on here but I thought I should add more. I will admit that there seems to be quite a few opportunities within the store...but only if you really push for it. The pay is now at 12 an hour which I think is great for retail. From my experience, the particular Target I work at has a management team that treats you like a family. Most of them anyway. Target is a fun atmosphere.

    Cons

    This is what I really wanted to add. Schedule more cashiers!! I'm a cashier and I normally am up at guest service but I'm at the regular checklanes sometimes too. But they shouldnt have to be calling someone up for code thirty times a day. Its ridiculous. I also think it's ridiculous how people on the sales floor make more than cashiers...I wont even get into why but its madness if you ask me. Sometimes, working so hard there is unrewarding. Of course, I work to get a paycheck but when they have you doing 10 different things in one day ...I know for sure I'm one of the hardest working, fastest cashiers they have. The constant "G" after every transaction proves it. Yet and still I get no recognition. They have employee of the month or whatever and in my year of being there I've yet to receive anything like it. Coworkers acknowledge each other more than management. I'm thinking about leaving that place and finding something better until I go back to school.

    Advice to Management

    Schedule more cashiers. Give more hours. 13 hours a week is chump change. Acknowledge those who keep your store running.

  3. "Good for a temporary job"

    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.

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

    Pros

    Compensation, co-workers, location, discount, SOME benefits

    Cons

    No option for a PPO or HMO, lllloooonnnngggf hours for exempt employees, incompetent management at some levels

    Advice to Management

    There should be better training for ETL's. I visit some stores and wonder who the hell are these people in charge. They can't even answer simple question. The employee screening process needs to be more stringent. A college degree does not equate to being an excellent manager.

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

    Pros

    I worked salesfloor it's one of the better non managment jobs in store. You're not dealing with elements, like the cart attendents or trapped at cash register. If you're having a bad day you kind of avoid people and overall the job isn't challenging. The best thing about Target is the people, my coworkers were what kept me sane.

    Cons

    The biggest con was the desire of management to endlessly trying to squeeze more and more work of employees while giving them less time to do it and with fewer people. Then when the store gets bad score,the blame falls on management for have a skelton staff, but on team members. I saw my starting time was slowly pushed back while being expected to do the same amount of work. Another issue was the consistantly inconsistant hours, one week they schedule you five days, the next week you get one. There was almost no chance to move up on the inside, they'd bring new college grads over much knowledgeable experience employees. If you're not looking stay long term the job bearable, but I won't advise anyone starting off a team member to stay very long.
