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

    Pros

    Decent pay, cool coworkers, opportunity for growth, employee discount

    Cons

    Little pay growth, lots of expectations with little time, not enough equipment for everyone, usual retail issues from customers, little choice in what you do

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic and understanding. A stressed out team won't perform the way you want.

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

    Pros

    Target is a great place to work. The staff and management are very encouraging, inviting and hard working. I also love the store product and the prices. I started working as a temporary seasonal employee and they hired me in as a permanent employee until I find an 8 - 5 job. This company is very understanding and works with the employees to balance work and personal life.

    Cons

    Retail can be tiring at times because its very physical for minimal pay.

    Advice to Management

    Management is exceptional at Target. While no place has perfect practices or policies, at this moment I have no advice for the management.

    I have been working at Target part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I am not feeling very positive towards target. Twenty positive words are I think beyond my capabilities at this moment. It is not because I am happy with my job that I am here.

    Cons

    There is a general air of secrecy that seems almost sneaky about salaries what is a average raise job titles and what they make. They tell you your wonderful but dont act like it

    I worked at Target full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Well one of the big posotives about this job was the fact that in 7 years time I never had a single time off request denied. The benefits were also decent with good insurance and a matching 401k program.

    Cons

    After being there for 7 years I was passed up for promotions multiple times and left the company making 10.08 an hour. There are good advancement opportunities in the company just not in AP anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Don't try going into Canada again, that move singlehandedly killed off a lot of the company.

    I worked at Target part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The coworkers are amazing. i worked there for 10 years.

    Cons

    11 p.m. can get old after years. Also when you have worked for them for 10 years and still work every weekend it can get old.

    Advice to Management

    I think that you need to realize that the people below you make some great suggestions that you tend to overlook because its not brand.
