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

    Pros

    If you don’t have any worries in the world this is great I.e. high school students or college students. Love to put you to work

    Cons

    The management doesn’t even know what’s going on so good luck with that. They live to put you to work but cap your hours and love to try and short hand your hours.

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

    Pros

    Good pay for a minimum wage job. Relatively easy work. Fast paced environment. Your fellow team members really begin to feel like family. Easy to pick up extra hours.

    Cons

    No room for advancement or growth. Very hard to become anything other than a cashier. Rude guests. Inflexible scheduling. Management is not willing to work with you on many things. Very easy to feel under appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t expect employees to bend over backwards for you when you can’t even lift your pinky finger for them. Promote from within, create incentives to make people want to work harder.
