    Pros

    Company is very forward thinking and teaches about leadership regardless of one’s background. Company is very competitive with pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Company is forward thinking, sometimes to a fault and making moves too quickly (Target Canada). Expect 60+ hour weeks, while doing a majority of your work below your pay grade.

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

    Pros

    Good hours fun people and team environment. I made great friends while here and learned a lot about merchandising and selling.

    Cons

    Leadership doesn't listen to team members opinions on change. They ask for opinions but, always end up doing what they want instead.

    Advice to Management

    We work on the floor, we may know what works better for ourselves and other team members, listen to us please!

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

    Pros

    The pay is decent for this to be my first job. Another pro is the ability to switch which target you work at if you haven't been reported any in the past two months.

    Cons

    No benefits. I've been working at target for 8 months and I have 0 sick or vacation days. I basically have to work whenever they schedule me to or risk getting fired.

    Advice to Management

    Dealing with the guest needs in addition to zoning, doing pulls, reshop, backstocking, and taking the phone calls can be overwhelming. It would be nice to have additional people on floor or in the back to help with all of the daily duties.
