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

    Pros

    Very flexible with scheduling, the people that i work with are amazing, the leaders make the work environment very welcoming

    Cons

    Of course with any retail business during slow times hours can be cut tremendously making it hard to make the normal amount you would

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

    Pros

    it was a very easy job. Not too many responsibilities. If you do your job in a timely manner there should be no problems.

    Cons

    You only get a ten percent discount. You also have to work on thanksgiving day and black Friday at least two shifts. The store is also open until 9 on Christmas eve.

    Advice to Management

    Management tends to just boss you around. It is always someone else's fault as to why something is wrong. They also just talk about other employees which is unprofessional.

    I have been working at Target full-time

    Pros

    Team work and good vibe. Fast paced and good breaks. Worked with any schedule, was very flexible. It wasn't bad work.

    Cons

    Poor management. They were always able to boss people around and tell them how something should be done but couldn't perform the work themselves.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Target provides a great opportunity to develop your leadership style. It provides a fast changing environment and you can except something new everyday. Target does invest a lot of time into developing managers that show they have the potential to do more. There is a lot of opportunity to grow with the company if you work hard.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is really not balanced
    Obviously working in retail means working weekends, holidays, early, early mornings and late, late nights this can be very draining

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Really good sense of community extending beyond the store walls, peers really care about one another's success and always do their best to contribute to the big picture

    Cons

    That big picture is fuzzy. Too many levels with too many initiatives means the end game becomes a big question mark. There is also a big tendancy for Store Team Leaders and District business partners to set extremely specific standards that revolve almost entirely around metrics and cloud over the day-to-day problems. Every workcenter pulls for focus which means your average run-of-the-mill Team Member either goes crazy trying to do everything and finishes it sub standard, or there are just things that never get done

    Advice to Management

    Make a surprise visit to a store, just to peek at where the focus is. You can't expect Team Members to drive conversion on the sales floor when they're always on code (read: backup), fill end caps when the back is full of unlocated merchandise, walk every guest to every item with 2 TMs on the floor, AND 'make it right' with a service desk the size of a post-it stamp
