    I have been working at Target part-time

    Pros

    For a part time job so I can get through college its not bad. I make a decent amount above minimum wage. The people are generally easy to work with and a lot of my coworkers are my age.

    Cons

    Managers can sometimes be a bit impersonal. If you're doing your job you should be ok, but sometimes I think management is stretched a bit thin and takes out their frustration on associates

    I have been working at Target part-time

    Pros

    The training is quality, focuses on guests and a positive mindset.
    As a result, many of my fellow employees are positive coming into their shifts, and it really shows in our interactions with guests.
    The pay is great in my area, especially for my first retail job as a tech consultant.

    Cons

    People aren't perfect, so mistakes are expected, even when it comes to HR'management. It took me more than a month to receive the full extent of my training, and much of it was done on the last possible day I could have completed my training on since it had somehow alluded my HR manager's sights. In fact, on the first few days I came in, my fellow employees who were supposed to be training me didn't even know I would be coming in and had to adjust to the surprising news.
    There's also the occasional customer that comes in and wants to be difficult, but that's a part of the job as well that we all must accept.

    Advice to Management

    On the local management level, keep eyes on your new employees to make sure they're receiving the training that they need to get their job done, especially when HR isn't the one administering the training. If someone is coming in to train, ensure the person who will be instructing them knows what will be happening during the shift.
    I have no advice for upper management other than keeping local management accountable for training and other things of the nature.
