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

    Pros

    I worked at Target while in college. It was a great job with competitive pay, fun co-workers and a good work ethic.

    Cons

    I felt for the managers. It may be run differently back then but it seemed a lot was asked if them as far as hours and responsibilities. I remember thinking it would be a hard job to have while having a family.

    Advice to Management

    I’m not sure I have any...I think my cons are just part of the life of retail work.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    10% discounts and management was willing to talk you, listen and take action! They were also willing to work with students who had classes.

    Cons

    Terrible pay, the customer is always right, but don't make your workers feel like crap for following your rules!

    Advice to Management

    Yearly increases were a joke for non management positions. if you want people to cover breaks in special areas, you should pay them the higher (.35) wage.

    Pros

    Assisting great guest is a reward in itself, getting to know some of the guest is also something that is interesting.

    Cons

    So many chiefs to to few Indians in the corporation as a whole. Not everyone seems to be on the same page for goal achievements.

    Learn how to communicate in a manner where you and your team member understand what is required of you. It is essential for the success of the store and the longevity of the corporation.
