    Pros

    Upbeat work environment, very fast paced, get to deal with a lot of different people, and they are always looking to promote people.

    Cons

    Sometimes slow promotion process depending on boss, work crazy schedules at times, and as in all retail jobs, you sometimes have to deal with nasty customers/guests.

    Pros

    Benefits are decent. The people that you work with are great and talented individuals. Community involvement.

    Cons

    Pay scale for upper management doesn’t increase very quickly, but team members are getting hefty raises each year.
    Expectations aren’t realistic. You’ll find yourself working 60+ hours a week to meet what they want from you. Work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Raising expectations is almost always a good thing, but be willing to give stores more payroll to meet those expectations. Otherwise, you’ll burn everyone out.

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

    Pros

    Best job I've had in terms of caring about break and lunch requirements
    Decently flexible hours; worked well for me as I was working basically full-time and a full-time student
    The manager I had for working in the backroom was a great
    A lot of friendly people

    Cons

    Just like in all jobs, some people will not work as hard as you do
    People made work so much more tedious because they were too lazy to do their job
    Management tended to be rotated to different stores often so it was hard to get consistent managing depending on what part of the store you worked in

    Advice to Management

    Try to stay in one place if you can, it helps consistency in work

    Pros

    The people at Target are great. They are always willing to help each other and try to build a sense of community within their workers.

    Cons

    Because of fluctuating hours, paying rent for an apartment in Naperville is difficult. It is necessary to cross-train, but those opportunities may only last for a few weeks. I can't tell you the number of times I've been scheduled for 4.5 hours then asked to stay a little longer, but actually they mean another 2 or 3 hours. The problem is that if you're scheduled for 4.5 hours, you don't get a lunch and I don't bring one. So when you ask me to stay and get paid another $18 dollars, but have no lunch or must buy a lunch in store, I have trouble understanding if you just don't respect me or if you really think paying me $20 to stay later than scheduled is worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Please be more honest about your expectations for opportunities to cross train employees. I understand retail is all about driving sales, but if you expect somebody to work more than 3 hours above what they are scheduled, then maybe the person who does scheduling needs to be coached. I understand that we hope to get so much work done in a specific amount of time, but when you make that goal but once a week, we must reevaluate leadership's expectations.
