      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Target part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Good pay, reasonable shifts, schedule posted 2 weeks ahead of time

      Cons

      Not many people open up creating a dreadful feeling of isolation, often times I would be zoning between 30-40 isles with minimum social interaction which just made every day feel miserable. Being asked how are you and being forced to say good is a torturous experience.

      Advice to Management

      Positive reinforcement is better than negative reinforcement, nobody can work hard when they're being reminded about how poorly they're doing when compared to others that have worked there for years.

    • Target is a competitive results driven environment that pushes you to work hard and smart.

      I have been working at Target part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The pay rate is higher than most retail stores, and they do plan to have the base pay at 15/hr by 2020z

      Cons

      Management tends to come off in a vaguely threatening way. They make sure you’re aware of the 90-day probationary period, which makes everyone feel very paranoid when beginning to work there. They have a very restricted number of hours to give out, so one week you may have plenty of hours and the next you might have only a few. Being sick means nothing to management, even in food areas. The employee discount is okay,...

      Advice to Management

      Stop making your employees feel like they’re constantly in trouble. You’re losing good employees because they feel like they’ve done something horrible when really they’re just doing their jobs. Also, hire more people and stop restricting your hours so much.

      I worked at Target full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Great place to gain initial leadership skills and to work flexible and very random hours.

      Cons

      Not a place to grow unless your path is wanting to be a team leader or store team leader. Being an HR Team Member my desire was to grow my HR skills and that was not an option that was supported after basic skills for the position were learned.

      Advice to Management

      Treat your bottom line better.

    • Fun, and laid back.

      I worked at Target part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The best thing about target is that they were very flexible when it came to the schedule. Especially if you were a student. They also didn’t care if you had piercings or tattoos, which I really appreciated.

      Cons

      Selling red cards. Part of the job was trying to get people to sign up for a Target credit card or debit card. Even if you tried hard it was sometimes very difficult to get people to sign up. management really pushed you to sell those cards, and at times it just wouldn’t happen.

      Rotating schedule, late hours, open holidays.
