    Pros

    Making guest happy. Great benefits

    Cons

    No chance for advancement even if you are more than qualified. ETLS are only hires from the outside usually straight out of college with no experience.
    Not enough hours for the workloads.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within, you lose good qualified team members to other businesses after training them well.

    Pros

    the flexible schedule allows you to tailor your work availability to additional schedules. as a student it was nice to work around weird class schedules.

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

    Pros

    There was always stuff to do, you knew what was expected of you, the people you worked with were nice, the hourly wage was good ($12.50/hr)

    Cons

    I wasn't given many hours, the boss could be demanding (yelling at everyone to work faster), you have to get up early (shifts began at 6 am, sometimes as early as 5 am or 4 am), little to no opportunity for advancement or more hours, they would often ask people to stay later than their scheduled time

    Advice to Management

    If everybody is working hard, cut them some slack. Also, learn how to schedule properly, I shouldn't be getting asked to stay later than my scheduled shift 50-60% of the time.
