    I have been working at Target part-time

    Pros

    I absolutely love working at my target. Great staff and everyone works well as team. Professional and polite.

    Cons

    Downside is we cant more than 15 hrs a week to meet our bill obligation. Even when short staffed, they dont give us the option of getting extra hrs so we can meet our goals for the day and close on time.

    Advice to Management

    Part time workers need more hrs. In stead of so many new hires, give some of us the option of having extra hrs. You have some great dedicated workers that need to work so we can all meet our daily goals together.

    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.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours. Easy to move to other departments or jobs. The discount that you get is very nice. Fast paced environment.

    Cons

    Hardly ever got off on time. If you work the late shift you can’t leave until everyone is done with their jobs.

    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 (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
