    Make friends with co-workers. The job was really easy.

    Better communication to the floor managers.
    Tell employees how long they are expected to work until.

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

    Pros

    They work so well with my schedule and always make sure I'm not working myself to hard. They work really hard to make sure the team feels valued individually as well as a group.

    Cons

    Not seeing my work as an accomplishment because it would be gone the next day. After working a long shift of organizing and making things look pretty, and then to come back the next day to see costumers had left things unfolded or in piles on the floor was always frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the whole team feels included.

    listen to employees and hire people that know how to do the job, Put employees into management positions because they know how to do the job, not because they just have a degree.

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

    Pros

    Good people, often autonomous work environments

    Cons

    Executives can and will throw you under the bus for their benefit

    Advice to Management

    Local HR cannot be bothered for anyone below the executive level, and executive management can be vindictive and favor specific employees with raises and premium work shifts, additional training and supervision is recommended
