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

    Pros

    Sometimes they would give out free Starbucks samples to the employees. Other than that it was a really awful experience.

    Cons

    Very poor at scheduling. If the weather is bad you still have to come in no matter what. People call in often so you end up having to pick up a lot of other people's slack.

    Advice to Management

    Very poor. They will over work you and they will also put you doing jobs that aren't yours. I was a chashier and I would get stuck having to work at the Pizza Hut inside Target or the Starbucks.

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

    Pros

    You get two 15 minute breaks and a 30 minute lunch. Pay starts out $10 per hour. Hours go by fast because you're always busy.

    Cons

    Team leads are rude. They harass you about red cards. You WILL get laid off/fired if you're pregnant. I started working cashier when my stomach wasn't showing and whenever I got bigger, I was immediately laid off with no reason as to why. After a few days, they posted a hiring now ad to take my position.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better human resource directors and team leads. Completely rude and inconsiderate people.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, hours always available for reliable workers

    Cons

    grossly inadequate training, lack of leadership and supervision, paychecks unreliable, corporate difficult to contact and mandatory for almost all operations, hard workers must pick up the slack of others or stay late, no raises, The environment encourages laziness. If one employee doesn't do chores, they are all given to another.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of rewarding harder workers with just more hours, there should be a financial incentive. Raises must be regular and competitive. Watch out for slacker employees taking advantage.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Everyday is a challenge. The environment is ever changing with the business so you never get in the stale doing the same thing every day mode. Opportunity to move from various departments if you are a team member. Always busy and a lot to do. The backroom was the best place to be.

    Cons

    Workloads placed on employees are unreasonable and excessive. HR does not address complaints and is not impartial. Serious issues such as sexual misconduct/ harassment, inappropriate conduct, & retaliation are swept "under the rug" and allowed to continue unchecked. The parties involved are not held accountable in fact they are rewarded for their "bad behavior". Upper management (Senior team leads/ETL's/HR/STL) has no regard for the care or treatment of its employees or appreciation for the hard work they do. Raises are not based on a pay for performance culture as stated. It is based on a random selection process to meet payroll. Basically if you are buddies or "in the click" with someone you get better pay and treatment than another person. There is no integrity or moral code of ethics with upper management. They will lie to your face to benefit/protect themselves and have no problems throwing people "under the bus". You will only get Christmas as a paid off holiday as Thanksgiving is pretty much gone due to Black Friday demands. The company is downsizing and there is no more opportunities for advancement after team lead if you can even get to that point. If you don't have a degree you will be told " It doesn't matter how hard you work. You can be the best employee in the world.If you don't have a degree you will never promote up. It doesn't matter if its in underwater basket weaving as long as yo have one". I do not advise anyone working here, and I've never said that about a company. I am ashamed at the way the STL/HR/ETL's/Senior TL's conduct business. I do not know how they sleep at night and have a clear conscience.This has to be the number one worst environment I have ever worked in. At one time it was a good nice place to work but not any more. DO NOT- DO NOT work at this store.

    Advice to Management

    Integrity - look it up!. Have morals and ethics. Do what is right even if its not the popular idea. Don't lie to people's faces to protect yourselves, admit when you've made a mistake/done something wrong and correct it. Value your employees and be concerned for their well being because they are the foundation of your company. They work hard to get things done on a day to day basis. Show appreciation and give a "thank you" for what they do. Protect the employee from a hostile work environment and hold accountable those that are doing inappropriate/wrong things.

    Pros

    I can't think of any

    Cons

    Pharmacy technician hours are not based on need, a lot of busy work that is unnecessary and makes a difficult job even more difficult

    Advice to Management

    Base pharmacy technician hours on actual help needed in the pharmacy versus how many prescriptions were filled in the previous week.

    Pros

    team member discount on all merchandise, awesome co-workers, people do their job, fun and challenging work, fast paced

    Cons

    it's retail, rude guests, management sits on their butts, don't get paid enough, hectic and stressful

    Advice to Management

    Learn to care about the team members or you're going to have to keep hiring more because the good ones will quit.


  10. "The managers and team leads are insincere."

    Pros

    Target offers employee discounts and benefits that are reasonable. There are some genuinely nice people in team lead positions at Target, and although they are in the minority, they are a pleasure to work with. Target has an efficient system for viewing paychecks, requesting time off, and clocking in and out of work.

    Cons

    The human resources aspect of Target seems to be artificially engineered (I suspect this is so there is a uniform system among all Target stores). While this might be the most efficient way of managing employees, it makes the management insincere and the team huddles and employee-manager interactions contrived. The management and team leads are told that they are to treat the people working under them in a particular way, but it is beyond clear that the team leads have little actual interest in the employees or even their jobs. The "recognition" system (you receive praise for doing absolutely trivial things) makes you feel as if you are just being used to help advance the reputation of team leads and managers rather than actually being recognized for legitimately good work

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend changing the human resources and social psychology tools that Target uses for employee-employer interactions. Having a standardized system across all Target stores may be efficient, but it comes across as largely inhuman, which is counterproductive. I feel like this contributes largely to the high turnover rate among lower-level employees.
