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

    Pros

    Friendly Staff, Decent pay, very easy going environment

    Cons

    Physically intense work, Hours have changed and it makes it easier to complete the job

    Advice to Management

    Keep the overnight staff hours actually overnight. The trucks are the same size and it is a lot harder to finish stocking when the store is open.

    I worked at Target part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was fun to work with my fellow team members. Same thing every day, unload truck, stock shelves, send to backstock.

    Cons

    Target as a company is really going down hill. They keep creating new teams (eg- Beauty) that are taking unnecessary hours away from departments that need them. Hours are horrible, except during Christmas and sometimes Back to School. Its not uncommon to get 30 hours a week in December then 10 in January. Because of when I started working there, I kept getting the dollar bump ups that they kept adding on. Technically it was nice, but it made me mad that I was making the exact same as the new person walking in when I had been there for three years already.

    Pros

    Dont have to deal with customers. Pays more than minimum wage. Cool people to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing happens to the people who calls/ no call no show. Instead the hard workers gets punished for not moving fast enough.

    I have been working at Target part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule
    Minimal micromanaging
    Decent pay
    Headphones allowed
    Employee discount

    Cons

    Continual procedure changes
    Little information/training
    Not enough equipment to do job efficiently
    Cannot carry water with you
    Often feel like a number

    Advice to Management

    Employees would respond to procedure changes better if they are informed of why and what the end goal is. Getting adequate training would be very beneficial.

    I have been working at Target part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    At very least I'm sure I'm getting my exercise- this is pretty constantly a lot of work with little time to stop for anything, save "guests" in the store. If you're good you often have a fair amout of leeway and independence in how you approach your work- it often doesn't matter how it gets done so long as it happens. Above all it's fun at times too- I have a great time meeting my coworkers and it feels like most of the time everybody's just trying to have a laugh to get through the day.

    Cons

    Again, this is pretty tiring work. Apart from that there seems to be a large problem with fellow employees not understanding the implication of the word "team" in the title of the position. My store's team is severely and chronically understaffed to the apparent delight of management who seem to take great pleasure in knowing while it did take 11 hours to get the whole truck done, only 3 people were left by the end.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the reality of what it takes to unload and push a truck in less than 6 hours or adjust your expectations for what a handful of people are capable of.

    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    Lots of movement, great work environment and friendly coworkers and a great supervisor

    Cons

    Bit understaffed where I worked so everyone was a bit rushed and lots of times we weren't able to complete our tasks before opening.

    Advice to Management

    Loved working under Russ, had fun but need more employees maybe flyers t the nearby university might bring in more workers?

    Former Employee - Merchandise Flow Team Member in Pflugerville, TX

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

    Pros

    Don't have to work with customers in the store (for the most part)
    Have the rest of the day after you get out (shifts start at 4AM, ending no later than 11AM for me)

    Cons

    Team lead was a bit of a jerk, would expect you to stay later than your availability allowed and even tried to send me to help another store after my very first shift
    No one really worked as a team; I worked stocking the clothing area and was told I "wouldn't want the boys messing up our clothing area anyway" when asking if other areas could help us
    Could be a pro depending on how you look at it, but you will be on your feet the entire time, and potentially lifting very heavy objects

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone equally, and actually listen to what your team members are saying
