    Pros

    Friendly environment and Management. Flexible hours for those with family's or school

    Cons

    Pay is sub-par and almost all positions are part-time and under 28hrs a week to keep from having to provide benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Hire full time employees for smaller positions

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

    Pros

    Easy Job, No expectations, No opportunity for promotion

    Cons

    Pushing "RedCard" is a joke. I had the most RedCard Signups of the month for the entire state, in my review I was rated as an "average" employee, specifically rated below average within the promotions/redcard area because there is a "bell curve" and they couldn't afford to provide appropriate raises. After a year, I recieved an .08 cent raise per hour. Apparently Target needed it more than I did.

    Advice to Management

    If an employee requests for cross training, allow them to grow. This is a crap, high school position. Allowing them to grow as an individual and a professional will allow them to actually move on in life, and not end up like your management team that lacks any sort of official supervisory training.

    *** Also, if you are intending on terminating someone's employment for something as trivial as giving out coupons to guests or for changing prices on items as management instructed the team member to do to make the guest happy, you should truly just reprimand them and see if the behavior corrects itself instead of just accusing them and terminating them same day. I was 17, how was I supposed to know what I did wrong if you didn't tell me???

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

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers and flexible scheduling. Have a generally clean workplace with readily available cleaning products.

    Cons

    too many coworkers who slack around too much to the point where most of the work goes to those who do work

    Advice to Management

    Either move the employees who can't do their job efficiently to a job they can do or fire them to make room for more efficient employees.

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

    Pros

    Met some really good people.

    Cons

    Team leads did nothing but sit in offices. They never helped when it got busy. Asked to get cross trained in other areas but they always ignored. I always closed and eventually got burnt out.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the team members about chances to move up. Alternate their schedules; don't always make them open or close. When the store gets busy help out with reshop, zoning, and backing up! Don't just disappear into the offices.

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

    Pros

    Competitive pay and general cares a lot about their team members. There are a lot of programs that Target takes part in to help the team. Examples are support for team members that are going through tough situations financially or at home.

    There is a lot of recognition given when you do a great job. When I was first hired, I was given a hand written thank you card from a lot of the regional team for making our REDcard goal. That was nice, I hadn't received that kind of recognition at other companies.

    Cons

    Payroll can make it very tough to accomplish all of your work. A lot of times it feels like there just aren't enough people to get all of the work done.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work on building a culture of great service.
