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

    Pros

    Management and staff will undoubtedly vary in quality from store to store, but at my store they were first-rate. Employee discount was good, hours were flexible and customer base was for the most part pleasant and loves Target.

    Cons

    Target seems obsessed with having every customer ("guest" in Target lingo) sign up for Target's "Red Card" program, and cashiers in particular are badgered mercilessly for Red Card applications. Performance is measured specifically by number of Red Card applications, which is increasingly difficult to achieve since guests are tired of being asked repeatedly for the card and are tired of hearing about it.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on customer service and satisfaction - the Red Cards will take care of themselves. I know of several employees who quit for this reason alone, which is most counterproductive for Target!

    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    They are good at switching people to jobs that they would like to be in. Give opportunities to learn new skills like making labels for them etc.

    Cons

    There was a lot of busy unnecessary work. Some of this work involved me moving away from my station at Electronics when I was the only one there to clean a section on the other side of the store. This is when we were busy.

    Advice to Management

    I would say keep people in sections that they feel most comfortable. Do not try to take them away from that section and then blame them when they cannot answer a call or help a customer in their original section.

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

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, great people. Work isn't too difficult, but can be a workout on flow team. Discount is helpful.

    Cons

    Team leads are rude, play favorites. Easy to get hurt. Other employees sometimes do not pay attention and can lead to injuries.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what team members say instead of taking your opinion of them and basing them on that.
