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

    Pros

    Not a bad place to work... if you're either in highschool, college, stay at home mom looking for money, post-retirement, post-pregnancy etc. Your availability is usually accepted as long as you can work weekends, if you say you can't work weekends, don't even apply or expect the job lol. Pay is decent if you're looking to make a little money, but if you're looking to make money or big money, Target is not an option.

    Some good benefits, lots of local discounts for working at Target as well, management is usually really great to work with, and the atmosphere is good. Not too many customers jump straight to yelling at you, everyone seems to be nice to each other. Target is a great place to work if you are a people person, it's quite expected that you attempt to greet every guest that you see. For the most part, performance expectations are made to your abilities.

    My co-workers in other areas perform to expectations and do their jobs. I am a cashier, and most cashiers absolutely love to hate their jobs and make up any reason to NOT do it. But, in my experience with Cart Attending and working the floor, everyone performs and I love it.

    At Target you can expect a very diverse culture amongst workers. You will find old and young, inexperienced and experienced, gay or straight, you get my drift. Target does NOT discriminate at all, if it wasn't a law to provide equal opportunity, they still would offer it. Target is a great company to work, they offer some great benefits, local discounts, and a good atmosphere to work for that might make it bearable if you're stuck there for a while.

    I'm looking forward to submitting my two weeks purely because I can't make a living here and advancement in my store is not possible for me, I have no future here. Despite all the bad I say about it, it's not all that bad. If you're 16 looking for a job until your 18-19 or trying to get through college, this is the job for you. if you're looking for post-retirement money, this is for you. If you're a stay at home mom who's looking to make some more money to provide, this is for you. If you're looking to make a little money, this is for you in general.

    Cons

    Low pay, you probably won't see more than $12 an hour, not even the older seniorities in much more important roles. Yearly raises are minimal at best, even for performing workers. No chance for additional raises to fit your situation, you will get turned away immediately. Not even if you've been with the company for years and simply need more money but love the job too much, if you get a raise, it's very minimal. Do not take this job unless you appreciate living paycheck to paycheck.

    I had no opportunities to advance at all. I did, I applied, got the new positions, worked it for a good two-three weeks and would get scheduled back in my old position. For the most part, Executive Team Leads are all freshly graduated kiddos with no experience in management at all or no history in Target, you will notice a high case of not hiring internally for management positions.

    Redcards, if you are a cashier or electronics TM, will become a word you see in nightmares. Upon interview you're sure to be asked about redcards, if you're able to talk about them, and to sell them, then they double check to make sure you're SURE you can. You won't get fired if you can't sell them... right away, but if you can't you can be sure to get talked to multiple times before eventual termination.

    I have absolutely zero idea on how some Target workers can afford to pay bills and a mortgage with this job, their spouses must make a majority of the household income if so, this job is not good for adult things. For two years it's helped pay off my car, insurance, and other little things, but I'm looking forward to buying a house with my girlfriend, providing for her, and making a comfortable living.

    Advice to Management

    My management honestly is pretty great, if I had to say anything, it's not in their control. Higher pay for higher performance/responsibility, more opportunity, skill recognition, and others would be a plus. My time spent working with my Target management has been nothing but positive.

    Pros

    The Company has a lot of diversity and if you are willing to stick with it you can go places

    Cons

    The store and how good it is directly relates to how good your GM and ETLs are

    Advice to Management

    Do things for your employees, BBQ's Monthly cakes, and learn their names, it makes a difference
