    Pros

    Ability to learn different jobs within store; my location has a shift board where you can try to give away shifts or pick up extra hours; start receiving PTO hours as early as 6 months.

    Cons

    Not reliable in the number of hours you are scheduled; been scheduled morning, evening, and overnight shifts all in the same week

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

    Pros

    Decent wages, didn't have a problem getting hours

    Cons

    Even when they approve your limited availability, they may still schedule you 35+ hours even though you have a second job that's full-time.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to availability.

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

    Pros

    Learn great communication skills and build friendships with many guests.

    Cons

    Most ETL's have no understanding what it is like to work as a normal team member. Most don't do any work and only care when corporate comes around which sometimes leaves team members discouraged.

    I worked at Target full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Good practice for pitching a product (Redcard is a thing there)
    -After 2 months, it becomes easy to do
    -Co workers help

    Cons

    - Communication between departments was a problem for the store I worked at. Because of this, some shoplifters got away.
    - Going to be bothered to pitch the REDCard. Not too big of a complaint but if they find out you're not trying, they might do something about it.

    Advice to Management

    -Better incentives for Redcard goals?
    -See above

    Pros

    You get paid more then most retail jobs

    The management is all over the place.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    $12/hour. 10% discount (you get the discount only if you pay cash or apply for their credit card/checking account Red Card). Free snacks in the lunch room.

    Cons

    While they bumped the hourly wage to $12/hour, your hours are being cut dramatically. You'll be lucky if you get 15 hours/week. Items are too expensive for Target employees to afford, with not enough working hours. No benefits for part timers. Hard to get more hours.

    Advice to Management

    Please give full time hours to your best employees. Give more hours to the employees that are available open to close, and perform a good job.
