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

    Pros

    Great pay, friendly coworkers, good hours, able to cross train,

    Cons

    Transfering stores is hard, and if you do the team leads treat you differently because they didn't train you and therefore feel threatened
    HR cares more about company than employees
    When you ask for electronically request less hours it gets "erased" and when you ask HR they tell you to do it electronically

    Not a thing....if you are a glutton for punishment, then this is perfect place

    Cons

    Horrible ignorant managers/ absolutely no respect for workers/dangerous- they make you operate baler & compactor with absolutely no training/ u have to pick up broken glass with super thin gloves/they make u clean up hazardous spills, it's dangerous

    Advice to Management

    Get a professional housekeeping crew & stop using your sales team as maintenance & sanitation/when u put free bagels & bread in lunchroom,PLEASE make sure there's no mold on it !!!!!!

    Pros

    Very diverse and comfortable environment. Decent pay for fairly light workload and flexible schedule.

    Logistics at my particular store is terrible. There is a ton of miscommunication between leaders, and inventory and display/advertising mistakes are abundant.

    Clear communication between leaders and team members is key.

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

    Pros

    Pay was good with decent hours during the holidays.

    Cons

    Management was awful. You have to do 20 jobs while trying to push truck and interact with guests/being helpful. Even when you get your work done it could still not be good enough to the team lead because it wasn’t don’t in 15 minutes.

    Advice to Management

    Be on the floor more and actually talk to your team. If they are not doing something rights be more open to retraining them before making them out to be no goodPay
