    Pros

    10% Employee Discount

    Some people are ok

    Discount stacks on top of other discounts

    Stores recently got redone so they care about something

    Cons

    No consideration for personal time or hours

    Management is terrible

    You can only use Employee discount when paying with Cash or Red Card

    Absolutely terrible customers

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

    Pros

    Fun team environment, great prize incentives and team theme days offered by store management for achieving red card and sales goals.
    Awesome employee discount.
    Cashier work was pretty mindless and customers were easy going a majority of the time.

    Cons

    Pushing Red Cards was annoying sometimes.
    Calling Out was difficult to manage for a part timer who wasn't in the store everyday.

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

    Pros

    Knoxville: Great team, great help, and room to grow from seasonal up to management quickly.

    Batavia: Not much to say here on this one. Some managers were super sweet, and helpful.. I did get to advance from cashier into the electronics section.

    Batavia:

    Cons

    Batavia: No room to advance, no team work, seemed like a bother to talk to the GSA's or LOD's about work or anything related. Maybe its because I was an outsider coming in but just felt like another number.

    Knoxville: Was outdated when I left but was getting the remodel the month after. Not much to complain about with this store.

    Advice to Management

    Knoxville: Keep up the fantastic work!

    Batavia: Don't be so uptight.
