    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    Team members would nice and easy to get along with. Learned a lot from them as well.

    Cons

    Some days were very unorganized and it was as if management had no idea what they were doing. Also on certain days we would be really understaffed. The scheduling had no order in it sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Get a bit more organized.

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

    Pros

    Discount
    Good first job
    Cross-training
    Getting to know the guests

    Cons

    I was FORCED to train and work at Starbucks when I asked not to
    Making as much as the new people that start there
    Management only cares about numbers, not employees
    Organizational culture

    Advice to Management

    Don't force employees to work at Starbucks in food service if they feel uncomfortable doing so.
    Stop pushing your employees to the max and not rewarding them or even pretending to be grateful.
    It's ridiculous that current employees had their salaries bumped up to $11/hr, which is the same pay the brand new people are getting without the years of experience!
    TAKE CARE OF YOUR PEOPLE! THAT IS WHY TARGET IS UNSUSTAINABLE! THE PROBLEM IS IN THE LEADERS! That's why turnover is so high! Excellent employees with years of experience are paid the same as brand new people off the street? Get outta here! We have more self worth than that!!

    The brand is great and the improvements the company is making are very smart. Pay for leadership Ian all levels is very competitive.
