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

    Pros

    Our management at our store is top notch. I love working with all of them. Team that you work with, the holidays, just the experience of being in retail.

    Cons

    When it's the slow season, (not Christmas) there arent enough hours, but that's not their fault. It's a corporate thing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I worked at Target (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible with requests off and scheduling. Management is generally easy to work with and professional. Decent company culture.

    Cons

    Since raising wages this past year, corporate has decided to slash costs elsewhere. Logistics can hardly work before the store's opening, because the company wants to save money on the one dollar pay differential. Hours are erratic, with full time employees losing up to 20 hours per week, even in early 4th quarter. Departments are purposefully understaffed to save payroll.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with the respect that you used to. Don't treat them as a profit drain.

    Personal selling doesn't work in a big box retail store.

    Convenient location, flexibility and good sales.

    Part-time hours reduced by half due to new seasonal hiring. No cross training available to get more hours.

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

    Pros

    Targets pay is high compared to many alternatives, and it's a relatively comfortable work environment. Work isn't stressful or overbearing.

    Cons

    Hours can be irregular and arent always guaranteed. Raises (as of late) do not reflect quality of work, effort, or tenure.

    Advice to Management

    Overall great job! But HR seems to have trouble hiring although many applicants apply, and the pay raises aren't reflective of my work (directed at corporate).

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

    Pros

    Easy first job, good for students. You don't have to deal with customers as much as cashiers do so that may be ideal for some people. You just go around and bring carts in with the machine and do a few other smaller tasks. You're constantly walking around the parking lot and store so it gives you a small amount of exercise. In the winter, you'll have to deal with the snow and may be asked to shovel or spread salt. This kind of job is usually flexible for students though your schedule may vary weekly.

    Cons

    The pay is obviously not great. Good for part-time students, not great as an actual career.
