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

    Pros

    There was a good amount of training and they also let you learn on your own.

    Cons

    Made you do too many tasks, like be a credit card salesmen, which really did not make the experience enjoyable or did not get compensated for.

    Pros

    Best reason to work here are the people you get to work with and the ability to cross train in other sections.

    Cons

    Managers don't always take what you have to say about something into consideration. They also schedule you on the same days for several weeks.

    Advice to Management

    The store I currently work at is not doing well with managing tasks to others.

    Pros

    Discounts at target and other companies
    Fun co-workers

    Cons

    Non-consistent schedule
    Short hours
    no benefits
    Bad communication

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees please. I have worked at target sense graduating and while I am looking for work in my field. I have seen so many new hires hired and not trained which makes my job much harder in the backroom. Even when we explain this to our supervisor and higher management, nothing happens about it.
