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

    Pros

    The people that were hired that work with me are very amusing to work with. They make the job fun and the company is also very lenient with kids going to school while working. I was easily allowed to take a leave of absence to attend school in Flagstaff and I was also given the option to easily transfer to a Target closer to my school.

    Cons

    The head of HR does not follow hour requests and taking time off can sometimes be very difficult because so little people work in my department at the store.

    I have been working at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I’ve met some amazing guests that have become some amazing friends. I’m sorry, but I really can’t think of any more Pros to working here.

    Cons

    If one of the ETL’s do not like you, they all do not like you. They gang up on you. It doesn’t matter how hard you work you will never get any recognition for it. If you are not a part of their clique, you are a NOBODY. They give you rules to follow as far as returns and coupon usage and then they will go against you right in front of the guest and make you look a fool. They teach you if a price tag does not match a DPCI it is considered a “ticket switch” and do not honor that price. Then when a guest complains they ask you why you didn’t honor the price?? You are pretty much damned if you do & damned if you don’t. It’s very confusing to say the least. They offer peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as a benefit, but they take it away as a punishment. Yes, grown adults we are talking about here.

    Advice to Management

    Please think for yourself. Be unique. Quit following the crowd. It’s sad to see how you talk about employees behind their back. The whole time I’m listening to you, I’m also wondering what you are saying about me to other team members. I feel as though I’m in high school.

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

    Pros

    Working at Target wasn't that bad, sometimes it was slow sometimes it was super busy. For me being a shy person I didn't get that many questions asked which I liked.

    Cons

    My other coworkers never really did anything, nights would drag on because we were always waiting for them to finish zoning their area. LOD's didn't seem to care either.

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

    Pros

    The guests. Team members. 20 word minimum. Word word word word. 20 word minimum. 20 word minimum. 20 word minimum.

    Cons

    These are the facts You will be lied to. If you need to call out for legitimate illness or if your child is sick your hours will be docked by half at least. You will be expected to do the work of four people in a four hour shift and then written up if you cannot get it all done. This company is horrible cares nothing about the people who do the hard work. The money goes towards the ETSLs who do nothing are condescending and use power phrases that you get basic management training. It was an embarrassment to work for this company. I am ashamed of being a part of target practices. And it is a disgusting, Hostile work environment created from the top trickling down. Don’t work for them

    Advice to Management

    It is pointless to fill this section out because Management refuses to listen to team members.

    I have been working at Target part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are great, the benefits and discounts are generous

    Cons

    Weird scheduling and superiors don't converse with the hourly workers who ultimately get the worse end of their decisions

    Advice to Management

    CONVERSE MORE! Don't just assume that your idea is the base, or that your new way is really even a good one.

    Pros

    Many resources available for training and development.

    Cons

    Retail hours are long and requires weekend availability.

    Advice to Management

    Minimize leadership status meetings. They are time consuming, and the time could be better spent on other activities.
