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

    - Excellent team culture (always liked my coworkers)
    - Tasks are straightforward

    Cons

    - Management can be a hit or miss.
    - The job gets mundane after a while

    Ask opinions from team members before you implement store changes.

    I worked at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Going in at twenty I didn’t expect to work at Target for an extended period of time. What followed were the four best years of my professional career. You not only get to work with a wonderful team, but you get the chance to prove yourself. A lot of promotions are done in-house.

    Cons

    There is only one true con that I can think of, and that is none other than the terrible red and khaki color combination.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t forget to take care of your team.

    Pros

    Great environment, loved the people I worked with, has a great training program, has a great internal growth.

    Does not provide a good work life balance since you work 50-60 hours a week.

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

    Pros

    Discounts, good hours, team work, good chance on promotions, managers will work around your schedule.

    Cons

    If you're seasonal they won't keep you
    Not enough cashier's
    People calling out all the time

    Advice to Management

    If you hire a lot of seasonal workers, try to at least keep 40% of them. It's not fair to tell us a week before seasonal ended to let us know you won't be keeping us, when we thought we still had a job.

    I worked at Target (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the coworkers are helpful and nice. You have some TL’s that are great as well

    Cons

    Very disorganized. Training is not thorough and you’re practically just thrown in the mix. Guests come in and steal all the time and management doesn’t do anything about it out of fear of losing customers. This location is low performing so there’s plenty of stress on management and it trickles down to all the team members, making it a stressful and unpleasant work environment

    Advice to Management

    Some of the Team Leaders don’t lead by example, it’s more of a “do as I say, and not as I do” but they expect other leaders/their subordinates to lead by example. Don’t expect everyone to be fully trained off of just spending time on a computer
