    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    The best thing about working at target is being a cashier and interacting with the customers.

    Cons

    This particular target's management was so uncooperative, unprofessional, was full of miscommunication and had very poor teaching skills. They only allowed me a month to get to know the ropes. No one showed me the correct way to manage my time in order to complete my assignments that were clearly a time schedule. Management was quick to ask if i needed help but would wait until the last minute to "check" my zone.

    Advice to Management

    Someone needs to hire new management. Especially the guy who handles parking.

    Opportunity to develop your own culture. Chance to deal with the community and own each process. Development of future leaders was a bonus

    To many to list - I will keep
    It short and just say I am
    Very dissatisfied in what I have seen and the upper leaders are not very trust worthy.

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

    Pros

    Flexible with your schedule! Great team members. Like how quickly the upper management are to solve a problem, wether for a customer or a team member.

    Cons

    There are days where they only have one cashier and the sales floor team members will most likely be a cashier for the day, which means you'll not have time to finish your department and they'll talk to you why you didn't...

    Advice to Management

    N/A

    I worked at Target (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Target has change a lot in the last ten years. They don't seem to take care of there long time employees. . Then when time to comes for executives to move on to another store we get these young out of college type executives who give no respect of what so ever to the employees who are actually the ones doing the work.

    Cons

    They show double standard to the employees.

    Advice to Management

    You have to give a little respect in order to receive respect. And try getting your hands a little bit dirty
