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

    Pros

    Opportunities for advancement, positive leaders, flexible schedules, jeans optional on weekends.

    Cons

    Very limited dress options... Khakis pants only is possibly the worst thing I have to endure here, which is not so bad when I say it out loud.

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

    Pros

    where I worked at it was probably the best job I worked at. the team members where awesome and target really took care of us when you had to work in the holidays. I worked as flow and it was really easy then I switched to backroom which was also cool.

    Cons

    the only con is that I had to wake up so early to unload the truck at 4am but that's pretty much it.

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

    Pros

    -The pay is decent.
    -The work was quite straightforward - just putting stuff on shelves, for the most part.
    -Some of my co-workers were cool people, I liked that they have a big diversity push.

    Cons

    - Management was infuriating to deal with. I was "asked" to stay past 6 hours often, and when I'd turn them down (Vacations, plans, appointments, ect.) they would frequently get hostile and threaten to fire me. Once I told them I was leaving in two weeks, I was treated terribly, to the point that I decided the full two weeks wasn't worth the treatment.
    - Hours. I was part time, yet expected to work 6 hours a day, occasionally 6 days a week. 36 hours is not part time, but if they pretend you work part time, they don't have to give you benefits. When I interviewed, I was told the days were four to eight thirty, or nine at the latest. I was there until one in the afternoon, once, and staying past ten was common.
    - Several of my co-workers were aggressive, and management did little about it. One of my co-workers was constantly insulting other people. Another one was lazy, constantly made mistakes, and would lose his temper constantly. They were also very transphobic, and when that was complained about, he was told he couldn't talk about that when the store was open. What about his co-workers? I guess we didn't matter.
    - The work is backbreaking, and you are expected to work as hard as possible for the 5/6+ hours you are there.

    Advice to Management

    - Treat your employees like human beings, not like "labor". Respect that people schedule their lives around a schedule, and if it's not consistent, people will have other plans. On the other side, if someone's being hostile in the workplace, it doesn't matter how much you need employees, it's going to drive people away to keep them working there.

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

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers

    Multiple Breaks + a Lunch break

    Nice pay for a first job or part time. Even can be nice for a full time job of a young person.

    Cons

    Trucks can sometime bring in a ton of freight which can be tiresome but honestly, there are no cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

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

    Pros

    You'll learn a lot. I've been with the company 2 1/2 years and started just knowing flow work ( opening boxes and stocking shelves). Six months later I was introduced to Presentation, where you execute sales planners and set up displays. I also learned the backroom operations. Knowing more helps when your position is low in work because you can pick up hours in other areas.

    So learn as much as you can. The opportunities are there.

    Cons

    There's always some point in the year where they will begin to cut hours for their full time employees and hire new people. It can be very frustrating. When the hours get ridiculous, I pick up a part time job.

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

    Pros

    pay is higher than minimum wage.
    work is mostly clean and safe.
    employee discount.

    Cons

    no overtime, like overtime pay is a virus and they made a quarantine.
    couldn't get many hours; wanted 40 or close to it-got 20 or 22 most weeks.
    no benefits of any kind (medical, dental insurance; holidays) until some date far in the future (which most employees will never reach).

    Advice to Management

    enjoy the profits, and share a little with the people on the bottom

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

    Pros

    Not a stationary position. Push.

    Cons

    Leads pushing for unrealistic expectations in a short amount of time. Backroom work area unsafe & crowded with inventory. Unorganized & low on zebras, boxcutters, walkie talkies and portable printers. Leads failure to follow through. We manage people not product yet failing at that. The human resources is a joke. They care not in store level. District leads and up do store visits yet the staff can not comment on the work environment for fear of termination threatened by leads. Raises are as follows maybe 2% most likely 1.5% of what you make if they like you.

    Advice to Management

    Expect if you pay minimum wage you will get minimum work.
