    I have been working at Target part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very diverse and comfortable environment. Decent pay for fairly light workload and flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Logistics at my particular store is terrible. There is a ton of miscommunication between leaders, and inventory and display/advertising mistakes are abundant.

    Advice to Management

    Clear communication between leaders and team members is key.

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

    Pros

    Pay is above minimum, staff seemed friendly

    Cons

    HR will yank an offer for no reason, then refuse to acknowledge what they have done, corporate lets them get by with whatever they want, calling is a waste of time. Offered seasonal employees the chance to stay on only if they were below a certain age. Lied and said they did not bump older workers from orientation even when corporate sent out the rescheduling notice

    Advice to Management

    Start holding the HR departments accountable, your corporate office lets them discriminate at will with no chance of retaliation

    I have been working at Target part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Discount is 10% and an extra 20% on health foods and c9 apparel. Customers are a little nicer than other retailers like WalMart.

    Cons

    Temperature isnt controlled in the store so sometimes it's hot and sometimes its freezing.

    Advice to Management

    When people are scheduled to leave at 1015pm then dont expect them to stay late EVERY SINGLE NIGHT!!!!

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

    Pros

    I was lucky enough to get great training! And customers really do come first!

    Cons

    Cross collaboration can be difficult, there were days when my team needed support from other operation teams... To be brief, you must be able to hold your team and others accountable to achieve store and company goals.

    Advice to Management

    As Team Lead you do report to Store Leads... If you can adopt "one team, one score" it will help your operation teams and in turn it will drive to better customer experiences.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Not much positive at this place.

    Cons

    Micromanagment, unrealistic expectations, horrific management, lack of compensation and respect, lack of promotion opportunities, soul-crushing sense of defeat, deathly rude 'guests', etc., etc., etc.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like human beings, capable of independent thought and deserving of respect. We're not just numbers on a 'metrics' sheet, and we deserve compensation for our hard work.

    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
