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

    Pros

    flexible work schedule
    early mornings
    pay starts at 10.50
    if you have a personal life matter they will grant leave while keeping your job
    upbeat work enviroment

    Cons

    everyone is part time, they hire more people so they dont have to pay you for full time
    poor management
    no room to move up
    they never hire in house for higher paying positions
    no matter how well you do, work is not rewarded
    perfect for college students and younger adults who have no kids or bills
    most hours a week 15
    high turnover rate, people quit daily

    Advice to Management

    pay those who work hard and come to work everyday to be full time so more can be done in a day and leave the ones who barely work and those who dont come to work stay part time with 15 hours a week.

    dont gossip to other superiors about another employee without saying it to them

    just because your a lead doesnt give you the right to sit on your but and do nothing

    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.

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

    Pros

    Ok starting salary out of college

    Cons

    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

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

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, works around your schedule, they work to show all employees that they are valued

    Cons

    They try to keep you under a certain number of hours per pay period (my theory is to keep from having to give you benefits) For example: I would have 30 or more hours for one week, and 25 or less the next week. Its hard to get benefits with them, because of the hours requirements. Cashier red card sale goals are VERY annoying

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

    Pros

    The people, the guest, the fun times, fast fun and friendly events, and learning a lot about a multimillion dollar corporation.

    Cons

    Long hours, people are always pointing the fingers at other workcenters and not taking the blame in their own. Had to have a work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Give your ETLs the proper training. Don't just throw them in the fire and expect them to know how to lead a team, hold people accountable and set expectations as a brand new ETL if they were not taught it in training.

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

    Pros

    It pays well for hourly team members. Good discount for team members. You can move up quickly at the hourly level if you work hard.

    Cons

    You have to obtain a bachelor's degree to become a salaried employee. I have one and Target would dangle that promotion for too long without acting. Company has become stagnant and with new store structures comes with way too high of expectations for 1 person to do. No empathy for life outside of work. There is more to life than your job/career.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together! If a team lead with 10 plus years of experience is qualified to be an ETL and they don't have a degree, promote them. I had one when I was there and saw kids right or of college with no job experience get ETL positions. I was there with Target experience and a degree but you guys chose cheaper, lazier labor. You lost a great leader in myself and have since thrived at another big box retailer.
