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

    Pros

    I can't think of a single good thing.

    Cons

    Management has you fill out an availability for scheduling, and then completely ignored it and blames you for scheduling conflicts that arise.
    I'm expected to work past my scheduled shift every day, and the managers act inconvenienced when I don't.
    More and more responsibilities get lumped into my job description and no extra money comes my way.
    Vacation requests often get ignored.
    Expected to pick up the slack of other team members who don't do their fair share of work.
    In all my interactions with management, I've felt many things, respected is not one of them.
    Not that it matters, but is worth noting. I've worked at smaller companies that have given bigger employee discounts. Target is only 10% off.

    Advice to Management

    Employees quit less often when you treat them like human beings.

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

    Pros

    Most of the staff, amount of work, entry level pay

    Cons

    Management can be willfully ignorant of serious issues, corporate sets standards without realizing the limitations or handicaps some stores have.

    Advice to Management

    Worry less about people listening to music and more about abusive staff with a history of violence.

    Pros

    The pay was really good

    Cons

    management is unethical and two faced.

    Advice to Management

    The STL may need to figure out how to deal with and separate his personal life from work life. Also dont tell your APTL to his face that you dont care about his department. Show a little respect and you'll receive the same in return. If you want things to run smoothly and not have an entire store against you, then work together and not team up and try to kill someone's future. You may have ruined someone's entire life by being a horrible manager. When you say to a team member that you have tried helping them by giving them plenty of constructive critisisim please make sure you understand the definition of constructive. People dont leave companies they leave managers.

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

    Pros

    Worked with great people! Fun job if you don't need the money for your day to day life. Great place to work if you're just starting off or just want a side job.

    Cons

    Management lacks communication. Don't rely on anyone to pass on information. All the hype about raising minimum pay to $12 per hour in 2012? Well, sure, if you already work there, otherwise starting pay for new hire is $11. AND, I was a former employee as a GSA, decided to come back 7 months later because they NEEDED me, only to get paid less than I was making and to GSA for less than what cashiers are making. So much for previous work experience with nothing but great employee reviews.

    Advice to Management

    If you want/need to hire GSA's or above, perhaps you should pay accordingly!

    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.
