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

    Pros

    Training was 2 weeks, but I learned that not everybody had the same caliber of training. Easy to get the hang of, and team members are always willing to help.

    Cons

    Too much drama and lack of work ethic in a lot of individuals. It is minimum wage so that makes sense.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage team members with a good work ethic. Try to understand the position of a sales floor team member before you come up with ideas that make it harder for them to complete tasks.

    Target pays all its employees well over minimum wage and develops each person that wants to move up through management.
