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

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers and flexible scheduling. Have a generally clean workplace with readily available cleaning products.

    Cons

    too many coworkers who slack around too much to the point where most of the work goes to those who do work

    Advice to Management

    Either move the employees who can't do their job efficiently to a job they can do or fire them to make room for more efficient employees.

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

    Pros

    - The coworkers were quality people, with usually positive attitudes
    - easy system for asking for time off work if you need it. Fairly easy to trade give away shifts

    Cons

    - you will work for a WHILE before you get just a $0.25 raise
    - management preaches lame teamwork crap like robots

    Advice to Management

    Come back down to earth! Stop treating "vibes" like a valued currency to your employees and maybe you will keep the average employee longer than 4 months.

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

    Pros

    Well, the position requires a large amount of physical activity. It helped me get into shape and boosted my confidence. Also, my co-workers and managers are more than willing to help out in, and outside, the store.

    Cons

    The same as before. Physical activity. As a Cart Attendant, you're required to push carts, collect baskets, collect hangers, collect re-shop, refill register bags, clean restrooms, change garbages, stock up supplies, maintain a clean front end, help with a guest requested "carry out", clean up toxic and non toxic spills, and cover Target Café employee breaks all in one shift. Oh! Not to mention you're the only one per shift.

    Advice to Management

    I kinda need my job.

    I worked at Target part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy job. A monkey could do it.

    Cons

    Constantly being told what to do. The head cashier is always on your butt about standing at the end of the lane and to sell red cards. We couldn't even stand a minuet before they come and demand you to do something after handling 50 costumers.

    They don't care about the employe all they care about is being on your butt.

    Advice to Management

    Show some compassion and stop annoying the cashiers to sell red cards. nobody wants the dam card and you annoy the coustomers by asking them over and over again.

    I worked at Target full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1.) 9 hr above minimum wage
    2.) Get hours

    Cons

    The Managers are unprofessional especial they will work you to the bone and treat you like a dog all at the same time. Beware of Favoritism and constant unrealistic expectations to complete your job as if you have been working there for years. Be aware you will get cussed out consistently and screamed at for incomplete work even if you have been called to all departments of the store.

    Advice to Management

    Do not treat the employees new or old like slaves
