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

    Pros

    Get a small heads up on sales. Getting fed during holidays was also a plus. And the frequency and length of breaks are a plus, because they get fined if you don't take a break.

    Cons

    They expect A LOT from you. The pay and benefits are kinda nice, but your time and effort will more than make up for it.

    There's also too many active managers. "Too many chiefs". They often have to defer responsibilities and it's often difficult to know who's really in charge.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure employees COMPLETE training modules. Also, during holidays, have more employees per section, not just more emoloyees that work different days

    And a personal observation; inform all employees TO NOT rely on the schedule app as it has bugs.

    I worked at Target full-time

    Pros

    Most coworkers are very friendly and have no problem taking new employees under their wing until they get well adjusted.
    Managers give positive feedback, and notice great performance.

    Cons

    Some managers were less than helpful during my time at Target. They would reprehend me in front of other employees (which was extremely unprofessional) about things that were not in my control. One even YELLED at me ( in front of everyone) during my first week there.
    I worked 39.9 hours a week, so I was never considered full-time and couldn't receive full-time benefits.
    I was scheduled to work every single weekend for four months straight. Only started to get a better schedule once I complained to upper management.
    They would often schedule me to close (3:30pm-12am) and then open the next morning (8am-3:30pm).

    Advice to Management

    Teach your managers to respect lower level employees! Employees are the most important aspect of a company. If you treat your employees right then they will treat the guest right as a result. Stop putting the guests over the employees.

    Miscommunication
    Not enough recognition

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

    Pros

    Target offers a flexible schedule with sick time and paid vacation. The company believes in a positive culture and team friendly work environment.

    Cons

    It's the definition of over work and underpaid. Pay increases are not noticeable and room for promotion is slim to none.

    Advice to Management

    It would be helpful if team members were given the reviews they deserve so they can get the pay increase to match the work they put out. Or else the turn over rate will continue to be high.

    Pros

    Great coworkers to work with. The schedule is very flexible. You get a ten percent discount on everything . Learn to have great costumer service skills.

    Cons

    The management was terrible. The store was always understaffed. You are under disciplinary action if you don’t ask EVERYONE for a red card . Employees often don’t get the credit that they deserve .
