    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

    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.

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

    Pros

    - Hours available to pickup when desired
    - Flexible with student schedules

    Cons

    - High turnover
    - LOD's have unrealistic expectations when staff is short-handed

    Advice to Management

    Easily said than done when trying to meet bottom line but employees are more than just a number on a roster/schedule sheet.

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

    Pros

    Working at Target was a good experience for me, being my first actual job. I learned a lot in a short time too. I learned communication and customer service.

    Cons

    I wish I could have stayed with the company but it was a seasonal position and they were chalk full with people who had more experience. I wish I could have found a similar job but have not yet.

    Advice to Management

    Please be direct with seasonal employees if they are being kept or not. I was told I was staying but suddenly let go. I struggled for a job after leaving. A heads up would be nice.

    Take more accountability and responsibility
