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

    Pros

    *Work with my school schedule
    *Employee benefits are nice.
    *Recognize hard work

    Cons

    IMO, flow team appears to be a dead-end job and not something someone should consider to work for years on end or think of as a career. There's always something better out there.

    *Company changes a LOT, not necessarily a con but definitely something I've noticed while working here. Not a problem for me as I can adjust.

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

    Pros

    It's a good place to start with or as a long term career. They have a great brand with a staff that up holds the standards of this brand. Goes without saying that it has a reputation for the higher end of the market.

    Cons

    Any and all work or professional environments involve an element of politics. People can and will have different opinions on what to expect from others.

    Advice to Management

    Whatever you are doing keep it up and give more positive verbal communications when at all possible.

    I worked at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

    Pros

    Ok starting salary out of college

    Bad experience working at Target - overworked managers who are required to "develop" their team while giving out measly $0.20 raises to workers who spend 15 years on thejob
