    I worked at Target

    Pros

    I enjoyed the team atmosphere and environment. I enjoyed working with fun team leaders. The interview process was pretty efficient.

    Cons

    I helped train someone after only working a couple weeks. Requesting time off was a huge hassle. Say I requested off for a wedding weeks in advance I'd have to call in the day off or hope someone took my shift off the board.

    Advice to Management

    Stronger training on register. I worked in soft lines, but I frequently worked the register less effectively because the training wasn't very thorough

    Train leaders better.

    I worked at Target full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    discount. flexible scheduling. flexible department transfers.

    Cons

    feast or famine hours. Have to leave and return in order to get promotions. raises are laughable. Was the only team member to get an outstanding on my reviews and got a 20 cent raise every time. No bonuses for anyone except store management. Will transfer you from Full time to Part time with out telling you.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about the employees that work hard and don't get jack.

      I worked at Target part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The pay was very good and i enjoyed interacting with the customers. Cashier jobs can get boring quickly, but the guests are sometimes really funny or insightful.

      Cons

      The most hours you will get part-time is about 20 and a lot of the time it is lower. I've gotten as little as 7 hours a week. The store is disorganized and management is rude and gossips about the coworkers.

      Advice to Management

      I think most people that have worked at target know what the environment is like and that it definitely needs some improvement.

      I worked at Target

      Pros

      Meeting great people and great guests. Depending on what department and location you are in, it could be one of the very few great stores for you.

      Cons

      Too many bad apple managers now. On the floor training is minimal, pay and hours can be horrible too.

      Pros

      Always something to do; fun team members; many different areas of the store to learn.

      Cons

      moving up to management from the inside is extremely difficult. If you do not intern, or come in from the outside it is almost impossible to get a promotion (even if you are overly qualified).

      Advice to Management

      At the west Marietta target (ga), I would tell them to respect their team members more and try to be more inclusive.
