    Pros

    It's awesome, early shift before store opens then when opening super chill, def recommend! Get an exercise as well!

    Cons

    Some of the higher ups at some locations are very snotty. And all they care about their bonuses!

    Care about your team, I know u guys care about your money and being above all, have some decency though.

    I worked at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work with some awesome people

    Cons

    Terrible management with unrealistic expectation. My store has lost every single team leader in the span of a year because we were all so miserable. They raise wages adequately for everyone except Team Leaders. I was making the same amount as someone just starting out in my position and they couldn't understand how I thought that wasn't fair. Don't expect and caring or understanding of personal issues. If you are sick they will coach you when you use your sick time. I had a family member in the hospital and had to leave an hour early to take care of a bed ridden family member and I got coached. If there is extreme weather and you leave 2 hours early and are still 10 mins late they will still coach you and tell you "you should have left earlier" DO NOT work for this company. It has gone so far downhill in the last 2 years. All of us were getting sick with stress while our ETLs were going on lavish vacations and sitting at their computers all day.

    Advice to Management

    Care about the people you employ. Not just upper management. ALSO stop hiring fresh out of college into ETL positions with no previous experience. They have zero clue what they are doing while the people who have been there for years are stuck.

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

    Pros

    Set schedule
    A little bit of freedom to merchandise // if you know your job.
    You have a great team in soft lines that you get to work train and work with.

    Cons

    Most days you are a glorified stocker.
     Spend your days picking up clothing up off the FLOOR.
    We should not "Be in Charge of Fan Central"
    The expectations out way the time allotted.
    Not enough people planned for VMGs & POGs.
    Workload unrealistic.
    You do not have a Team any more, and Peers - don't step up to help.

    Advice to Management

    You need to go back to the drawing board and figure out how to utilize the VM. We are not Stock people, We don't work nights and weekend, We are not LODs. Need to be more appreciated and MERCHANDISE daily. Training the SL team just as important. VMs should be Executives like in many other reatiers. Stop treating us like glorified stocke people. If you hired correctly they have 10+ years.

    Pros

    Good pay for the freezer / dairy

    Cons

    Management sucks and always think you can be in two places at once . And they don’t have enough people and expect you to just run around everywhere

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Team Leads were always helpful, on top of things and trusted me.
    Co-workers were helpful and easy to work with.
    Pay is fine, just above minimum wage but I would much rather walk around a store than work a deep fryer.
    Breaks and lunches are mandatory, frequent enough. May ask you to stay longer past your shift, but you can always say no.
    Can pick how many hours you want to work (as long as it's under 40) and what schedule works for you.

    Cons

    The job can get mind-numblingly repetitive. Stock, clean, repeat.
    Customers (guests) can be very rude and hard to deal with.
    Some weird shifts can occur (closing one day and opening the next), especially when understaffed or at holiday season.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing fun things like trivia when the store is dead or free snacks in the break room. They really help.
