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

    Pros

    Good pay
    Actually getting scheduled breaks
    Good company values

    Cons

    Always backing up at the registers
    Needing to sell to people as part of new business approach
    Too many tasks to get done because guests always come first
    No guaranteed days off, not very flexible schedule
    It was SO HOT in my area of the store
    If you close you do not get to leave near when scheduled

    Advice to Management

    Hire more cashiers instead of making the sales floor back up every 5 seconds
    Also regulate temperature better

    Pros

    Good benefits package. Most co-workers are friendly. Occasionally food is catered in for all team members.

    Pay and reviews are based on favoritism not skill level, or work quality, Seniority and sick pay don't exist.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone with the same respect you want to receive.

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

    Pros

    The benefits and different ways Target gives back to its team members is great

    Cons

    Work-Life Balance and team culture is a problem with many stores by stretching people very thin and causing strain

    Advice to Management

    Favoritism often gets in the way of growth potential and filters out a lot of talent. Consider the balance different leaders have to offer to generate creative ideas rather than expecting a “one size fits all” type leader.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have learned a lot from this company when I returned to Retail after several interesting jobs. They're facing new challenges due to how Consumers Shop and Order Merchandise. I've been lucky to meet some really great People on both Professional Levels and Personal Levels. 'It's about adaptability and flexibility.

    Cons

    Businesses are changing to meet the needs of the Consumers and the Challenges of Their Competition. It's about staying viable well into the Future. We, as Individuals have to adapt as well as learn newer skills so we can also work well into our own futures! It's not easy to think about another job, but this is the Reality of this Employment Journey.

    Advice to Management

    Stay positive when directing your workers as this will actually inspire most to see they are valued and encouraged to do their best.
