    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    If you are working on the salesfloor, you are part of a big team: cashers, salesfloor associates, inventory and stockroom team members all help each other out in some way.

    Contrary to popular belief, you may meet some people who have a generally positive attitude despite the challenges of retail.

    Cons

    If you are brand new, it might be difficult to get morning shifts because most of the senior people on the salesfloor have morning hours.

    Holiday season is definitely challenging because of longer hours and a higher workload.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support the workers because they are the lifeblood of the company.
