    Great people to work with
    Stress free most of the time

    Cons

    Workload can be tough for what you get paid

    They attempt to use "less corportate terms" like "Team members, Leaders, Guests" but in the end it makes them look more corporate.

    Get rid of your "Non-corporate words"

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

    Pros

    Majority of coworkers are nice and understanding. Easy to communicate with HR when needed. They understood family emergencies were a part of life and didn't hassle me when those emergencies arose.

    Cons

    Honestly I didn't really feel many downsides besides the usual things such as under-staffing during more active hours and stuff like that. Typical retail culture.

    Advice to Management

    Continue what you've been doing, in my one year of working at Target, I felt comfortable at all times and would definitely return if I wasn't seeking a degree in college at the moment.

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

    Pros

    They do a good job of making you feel like you’re apart of a team, offer community outreach opportunities and treats their employees fairly.

    Cons

    Depending on the retail location and the volume of customer demands / runs you need to make to get merchandise on the floor; it could become overwhelming when you are alone, which was pretty common for me.

    Advice to Management

    I’d say plan for more people to be working different areas in small teams if able, instead of only one person per area.
