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

    Pros

    The best reason to work here would be just to get a pay check. The people I work with makes it easier to bare working there.

    Cons

    The people that come into the store. The lighting in the store is very harsh. They don’t play music in the store. It’s always a mess no matter what time of day or year it is. They give me not so good hours.

    Advice to Management

    Chill out

    Pros

    Fair pay, great staff and management. Target was my first real job and made some lasting friendships and learned a lot

    Cons

    The hours and the holidays worked. For me personally there was no room for growth here which is why I had to leave the company eventually

    I have been working at Target part-time

    Pros

    - Keeps you active
    - Always busy
    -Fast-paced environment
    -A few good quality team members that make the experience
    -Decent employee discount,
    -Great employee appreciation.
    -Accommodating guest's needs by using the target app which is really helpful
    - Great opportunity to learn the basics for any job opportunity after one's time at Target
    -Thoroughly enjoyed cross-training an the ability to work in more than one section
    -Enjoyed the workload

    Cons

    -Rude coworkers
    -The possibility of favoritism
    -Lack of cohesiveness
    -Can be a slight problem finding someone on the floor team to assist customers needs when you're busy doing unloading and stocking the shelves
    - Would be great to be able to explain workplace grievances and actually be heard
    - Noticed a "clique' culture of exclusiveness among minority and or ethnic groups,
     -The crazy heavy workload from time to time handle by yourself which is ok except your being rushed to a time limit and would have made a difference
    -Not enough devices to help guests needs or for your work
    -Miscommunication with different departments aka sending things to the wrong floor or section, or sending too much of an item so it has to be back stocked
    -Trainers for team members can be a little more professional in regards to the work procedure and not pick and choose who to be considerate too or make up their own rules.
    -The employee discount cannot be used with a regular debit card, not much explanation of the Target debit card either

    Advice to Management

    Had no problems with management it was fine for the most, to have taken notice of the workplace culture and prejudice would have been ideal. Working on long terms goals for making the flow of logistics easier.

    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    If you enjoy working hard in a fun, fast and friendly work environment, this is for you.
    GSTL’s, LOD’s and ETL’s appreciate and reward all team members who pull their weight and care. I have worked for companies that actually punish hard work.
    Lots of company perks, like a 401K, health insurance and cell phone discounts (all carriers) I enjoyed it during the Christmas shopping season (only 90 days of employment)
    You can put in an internal application (up to 3 position, 3 stores) to get promoted.

    Cons

    Hard to get the hours after the holidays. Didn’t like the fact this position requires to be outside in the rain, cold and snow.

    Advice to Management

    None.
