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

    Pros

    Atmosphere of growth, Supportive Coworkers, Flexible Hours, Very Cooperative Supervisors, Decent Pay

    Cons

    Not many provisions for minimizing food waste, Few opportunities to advance, Training doesn't happen all at once (learn as you go mentality - even close to major holidays)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work but try to keep the forward momentum! Making sure that the maximum amount of resources are diverted to the correct avenues is key for good word of mouth reputations; recycling, food and merchandise donations, and growth opportunities are what effect the staff's outward production.

    Mostly friendly ppl discount card idk

    Very low hours not much motivation if you need help somewhere they just say than show you

    If you had more hours you probably would have better employees you can’t blame your employees for anything that isn’t down yet if your not willing to give them the hours to show for it.

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

    Pros

    Knowing about sales and clearance mark downs as soon as they happen.
    The pay was above minimum wage but wasn't worth the stress.

    Cons

    Poor management, scheduling nightmares, understaffed store meant work was never completed on time if done well.

    Advice to Management

    Don't give stores notice of regional management visits. The stores would go through a makeover the day before a visit and the few reliable employees would be scheduled for long shifts to account for visits.

    Pros

    You'll be treated fairly enough.

    Cons

    Getting up at 5 in the morning sucked. Also, whoever is in charge of loading the truck at the distribution center should probably not play jenga with the products.
