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

    Pros

    It was fun to work with my fellow team members. Same thing every day, unload truck, stock shelves, send to backstock.

    Cons

    Target as a company is really going down hill. They keep creating new teams (eg- Beauty) that are taking unnecessary hours away from departments that need them. Hours are horrible, except during Christmas and sometimes Back to School. Its not uncommon to get 30 hours a week in December then 10 in January. Because of when I started working there, I kept getting the dollar bump ups that they kept adding on. Technically it was nice, but it made me mad that I was making the exact same as the new person walking in when I had been there for three years already.

    Pros

    Great benefits, pays well, upper-corporate leadership sets good goals for the company

    Cons

    Management policies and enforcement vary drastically from store to store, and some leaders are absolutely great, while others are terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Follow your own policies, don't just set them.

    Pros

    Constantly changing to stay current. Allows growth as individual. Inclusive of all types of people, allowing for learning outside your comfort zone.

    Cons

    Low pay for expectations. Long hours, not enough help. Management carries most of the workload. Work life balance non-existent, or rare.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledging the store leadership under the higher management with acceptable pay and hours.

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

    Pros

    Most coworkers are awesome.

    Team Atmosphere

    Fast Paced Work Environment

    Cons

    Managers aren't always on the same page, giving different directives and priorities

    The company seems to be struggling in the online retail space, putting more pressure on in store teams to meet unrealistic goals with little to no training.

    Executive Team Leads in Human Resources are supposed to be recruiting "specialists" from other physical retail stores by paying less and offering no commission.

    Store Team Leaders are encouraged, via bonus check, to hire as many fresh college graduates as possible regardless of wash-out rate or level of success inside the company of the new hires.

    At least at my store there was a Us (management) vs. Them (team members) culture that was encouraged.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring kids right out of college with no work experience to be Executive Team Leaders. They know nothing, act as if they know everything and damage team morale because they are lacking a work ethic and/or experience in the retail sector.

    Promote people from within that have been with the company 2+ years, they already have experience inside the company structure, knowledge of the processes, and are less likely to wash-out.

    In my 3 years with the company I was promoted to Team Leader within 2 months of working there. In that short time I watched at least 7 Executive Team Leaders who had never held a job before wash-out and quit leaving the store without a leader for the department for months at a time. I would like to say this increased the work load, but the vast majority of these ETL's didn't actually work, ever. I'm talking about ETL's that literally stand outside because "it's really nice out" when inside the store there's always plenty of work to do. As a team leader/member it's incredibly frustrating to have someone who does nothing for a "leader".

    Advice to Management

    They need to promote based on competency and not solely on credentials

    I worked at Target full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed my years there. Some of the ETL's would try to make your life difficult, but overall it was a decent place to work.

    Cons

    The company wants you to make everyone who comes into the store to get a RED card. Don't take no for an answer. I am not a pushy type so I didn't have many red cards. That was my main complaint about Target

    i

    Advice to Management

    Back off on RED cards and push Cartwheel more. It is free and everybody can save with it.


  10. "Great part-time job, depending on your management team"

    I have been working at Target part-time

    Pros

    Employee discount, extra promotional discounts throughout year (30% off Fitbits one month, for example), there's often free food in breakroom, can be a fun place to work

    Cons

    Management often likes to under-hire and under-schedule, so sometimes you're expected to do work of 2-3 people for the wage of one.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging. Hire more people so that we can do a good zone of our areas and also be able to stop and help guests.
