    I worked at Target part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay was good with decent hours during the holidays.

    Cons

    Management was awful. You have to do 20 jobs while trying to push truck and interact with guests/being helpful. Even when you get your work done it could still not be good enough to the team lead because it wasn’t don’t in 15 minutes.

    Advice to Management

    Be on the floor more and actually talk to your team. If they are not doing something rights be more open to retraining them before making them out to be no goodPay

    Current Employee - Merchandise Brand Team Member in Morrisville, NC
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Target part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    You meet some great people and get to learn a lot about what goes on throughout the store. It's really nice to have a schedule out for two weeks. Some Team leads and Executive Team leads are easy to talk to, but not all. You can get a lot of hours if you work hard.

    Cons

    Promotions are definitely to those who are favorites or those who are buddy-buddy with Team Leads. Difficult to talk to some Team Leads and ETLs. When you have an issue with a team member or someone above you, nothing gets worked out or changes. They could also give more than a 10% discount.

    Advice to Management

    Promote based on work ethic, not because someone is your friend. Listen to what your team members say, because they will leave if you don't.
