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

    Pros

    They work around your schedules, work load is light around Christmas time.

    Cons

    Workers always get caught up in gossip, you'll go from 34 hours to 18 in a week wondering how you're going to pay your bills, LODs are a pack and badmouth employees right in front of their face, there's no room for improvement, you can't tell the LODs anything negative about any employees that have been been there for more than a year or else they get protective about them (even though they're doing their work wrong), you have to remind them that you requested days off or else they'll ignore it.

    Advice to Management

    Work on everything. Literally everything that your stores are doing right now need to be fixed.

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

    Pros

    Inclusive company culture, tons of product selection

    Cons

    Terrible staffing, full-time hourly leaders not even getting 30 hours/week

    Advice to Management

    Stop ignoring Team Leaders' requests/complaints - we're on the floor much more than managers are and could use the support

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

    Pros

    works with most schedules, cross trains to work in multiple dept.

    Cons

    they ask too much for what they pay you. This job is too stressful for what they pay you.

    Advice to Management

    learn to treat people with respect and understand the job task that are given are unrealistic to fill in a short amount of time on top of day to day duties.

    I worked at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great team members
    Scheduling is very flexible
    Completely different feel from other big box retailers
    Very thorough training by fellow team members.

    Cons

    Pay starts near the lower end of the scale
    Yearly performance reviews are anything but based on performance, more based on interpersonal relationships. Sadly.

    Advice to Management

    Take a more unbiased look at your employees. Just because they are young or don't have any management experience doesn't mean they aren't of greater value to the company!
