    Pros

    Super friendly. Team member discount. If you want to move up, management will work with you to help you get there and give you opportunities to "prove" yourself.

    Cons

    Occasionally stressful, can feel underpaid. GSA position is not quite management but you still have management responsibilities and accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Either make the GSA management or stop treating them like management.

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Target has an obsession with getting Red Cards. You only have value at Target as a cashier IF you are able to get a lot of people to sign up for Red Cards. It doesn't matter if you are an exceptionally great cashier. If you can't get people to sign-up for Red Cards they WON'T keep you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your staff based on how well they work and treat the guests rather than only rate cashiers worth based on how many Red Cards they are able to get. Targets priorities are a little skewed.

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

    Pros

    You get a big discount on khaki and red clothes on Fridays.
    You become close with your department. Room for growth if you like retail and do a lot of schmoozing.

    Cons

    Low paying job. Every time a district manager changes, the policies get stricter for employees. Little discount and motivation. While I was there incentives kept getting slashed but expectations got higher. From what I here from friends still working there, the incentives have gotten better and how they do things have as well.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. If someone keeps asking for more opportunity, you should actually invest in them.

    Pros

    people there are super nice, acceptable workload. You will easily get promotion if act normally.

    Cons

    Long working hours, not much bonus, not flexible. You get boarded very soon if you do not enjoy doing it.

    Advice to Management

    Some bonus will be great to motivate employee. I would love some company event day and team work assesment.

    You have to deal with a lot of micro managing from superiors, very political work environment, weak/inexperienced management that are fresh out of college and poorly trained.

    Improve incentives and hiring of management to obtain/retain talent.
