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

    Pros

    The work itself is easy once you get used to it if you can handle multitasking in a fast pace environment. It’s hard to get fired unless you’re stealing.

    Cons

    The pay is fair until you have to carry the load of other work-shy team members. They cut hours in half meaning sometimes you’ll get 20 hours a week. It’s giid if you’re ok with part time.

    Advice to Management

    It won’t even matter...

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

    Pros

    Free food for staff occasionally

    Cons

    1. The most unorganized and the worst company I’ve ever worked for in the past 10 yrs. Management is a chaos.
    2. Warehouse aisles are always jammed or stuck with things which makes it very difficult for people to walk through or even pushing the chart through or move ladder. Garbage everywhere. The heaviest boxes or items are always placed on the top of the shelf which makes it very difficult and dangerous to get.
    3. The stocking system is terrible and unreliable as it always shows the wrong amount of stocks while they want you to work base on it.
    4. They want you to do the job but don’t wanna help you do the job. Equipment for works are always broken or not enough for staffs. But they want you to work as fast as possible.
    6. Management is rude and lack of manner, they don’t seem to care bout their member except for themself and their job. Not giving staff breaks at proper time. Force staff to do unscheduled OT.

    Advice to Management

    Learn some manner and respect for staff.

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

    Pros

    Great team members and I stress team members.

    Cons

    Hours are cut regularly, new management styles every 12-18 months. High turnover of team members, never being sure if you are working in the same capacity. Low morale and chaotic environment due to constant changes.

    Advice to Management

    Find a system that works and stick with it.

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

    Pros

    For Full-Time employees, they do have some really good benefits including the insurance offered and if you like to stay busy and interact with the public, this is a good place to be as the clientele is usually pretty friendly

    Cons

    Expect to not get a lot of assistance or tons of training before you are placed on the floor and expected to be able to handle it all. The work is non-stop and hours are going to be all over the place with some times of the year being close to 40 and others barely getting 10hrs a week unless you are TL or higher. Turnover rate at our store was horrendous and I was a GSTL for the front end for nearly 6 years. Upper management in stores do tend to be young and straight from college. As a GSTL, I found that even on my time off, I still had to be available through communications to my team via texts or phone calls so that did affect my work/life balance on top of having to work assorted nights, weekends and holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Give REAL recognition to all employees - not just the ones you favor - It was really obvious in our store that certain areas of the store were preferred by the STL and ETL's and that others were often ignored or given no support. Know your own rules and policies and support your team when they are trying to make good calls for the store and/or for the guests.

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

    Pros

    the starting pay is pretty high at $12, so I was excited when I was hired on.

    Cons

    After seasonal ends, there are absolutely no hours. I was cut back from 30-40 hours a week to 4-8 hours a week. It affected everyone that worked there, even the GSTL's and leaders. They had hired on so many people for seasonal that they had to cut back and it killed pay checks. If you're looking for consistent steady work, don't work here.

    Advice to Management

    Improve hiring process
