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

    Pros

    Good co-workers, lots of hours if you are willing to work hard, IF you can move to or get hired into the "specialty positions" you get paid more for doing less work

    Cons

    All of the managers will lie to and manipulate the team members to make them work harder, they burn out and get rid of top performers, yearly corporate minimum wage increases get rid of the yearly raise the team members receive.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage properly and don't spend all your time at the starbucks or in your offices

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

    Pros

    It's a job and you are getting paid, not much else to be happy about. The most productive workers tend to get the most hours (as it should be). If you want to work more hours, be sure to get cross trained in every department, including the back for pulling.

    Cons

    Men are expected to work much harder to make up for lack of productivity from the young female work force. The older women typically work very hard, but the young girls do next to nothing in comparison. If you can get past that and just accept the inequality in expectations then its not a terrible place to work. Hours can be hard to come by when they over staff but if you work hard you will get the extra hours over the slackers.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone should be held to the same productivity standards baring a legit disability. Talk to your employees and get to know them better.

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours, fun team, and simple job that requires a lot of physical work which includes heavy lifting and lots of walking.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive for the position and is not worth the risks of heavy lifting, walking constantly all over the store picking items, and having to deal with logistics and customer service. Also, poor management, excessive workloads, no way to move up in the company, and poor yearly raises are other issues with this position.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees more and fight for better wages for them that are competitive with the market for jobs such as these. It truly shows that Target has no care for its lower level employees and is not even willing to pay markets worth. For being number one in the region for online orders that you consistently gloat about and congratulate us on there has been nothing done for us as employees. The salary is no where near what we should be getting for the work that is being done. Also, not giving us opportunities to grow and be promoted within the company shows the lack of care management and the company itself has for its employees.
