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

    -

    Advice to Management

    When it comes to asking for time give a little more room for us to ask off and actually have chances to switch shifts. Also have someone check on the people who are higher up than cashiers. Some are abusive of their power.

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

    Pros

    -Fairly competitive base pay for retail
    -Some degree of autonomy depending on your work center

    Cons

    -Because it is retail, you'll be working nights, weekends and holidays no matter your position
    -Benefits are lackluster and deductibles are high
    -Hourly employees with often see their schedule and total hours fluctuate wildly

    Advice to Management

    Allow current employees to apply for the executive team lead internships, instead of 22 year old recent college grads. You're missing out on a lot of talent that leaves for greener pastures because of it.

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

    Pros

    People, salary, 10% discount

    Cons

    Long Hours, working holidays, lack of forward thinking management-no vision, no advancement opportunities due to terrible business decisions like opening and closing 200 Canada Targets and selling the Clinic and Pharmacy to CVS

    Advice to Management

    Value your top producing team members by recognizing their accomplishments, occasionally saying thank you. Too much favoritism and the "good old boy" network.


  10. "Don't do it"

    Pros

    Opportunity for more hours are always there and you get 5% discount

    Cons

    No work life balance. You will work what they give when they give it. Guests walk all over employees here and management takes no control of situation

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees and do a better job at communicating amongst yourselves and other team members. It's not all about red cards but the guest experience too!
