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

    Pros

    Friendly (for the most part) coworkers

    Cons

    Almost everyone (including management) only seem to care about themselves. Don't have the resources to complete your task properly? Your supervisor doesn't care as long as they don't look bad in front of their boss.

    Over 3 years of faithful, dedicated work, I was given a real bonus of only about 7 cents. They started me off at $8.25, which then got bumped up to 10.25 the following year. This was not an actual raise, but it was done because Maryland's minimum wage was raised, and management told me that they want to stay above the minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    The ladder needs to stop rewarding selfish behaviors, as it shows in the management on the retail floor.

    find a way to reward top performers in order to retain them

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

    Pros

    Fun. Fast past. Forced to take breaks. (I don't like to stop working) never same thing everyday was new, fun and different. Meetings recognized and rewarded good employees daily.

    Cons

    Pay. Horrible pay for regular employees but they did give better raises than most corporate chains.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.

    Pros

    Diverse work community. Opportunities for cross training and other job enrichment. Weekly work schedule posted 2 weeks in advance.

    Cons

    Availability of hours during off peak season. Career advancement/ full time benefits are largely contingent on being available for overnight shifts. Typical turnover issues.

    I worked at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The only good reason to work at target, is that is shows you, you really need a degree to be something because nobody deserves to work at target.

    Cons

    Underpaid and overworked, and they set unrealistic expectations for people who actually do work. They also play favoritism and rarely promote internally.

    Advice to Management

    Just be better, treat the people their like you would want to be treated and not like they are your slaves who are only their to serve you.

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

    Pros

    Great team members, was kind of hard to leave since they felt like family

    Cons

    NO HOURS, pay wasn't much at the start but by the time I left I was getting around 20 hours at best for two weeks, despite my ability to be in more than one department, and that location is still hiring which makes no sense if they don't have hours to give.

    Advice to Management

    Give out hours equally to team members based on their schedules, and not to crank out the maximum amount of hours to "toxic" team members just because they rake in RedCards. The front end also needs to understand the trend that most RedCard owners go back to the same store they got it from, which is why the # of applicants goes down over a short amount of time...never have I felt so bad for not doing what is essentially an optional part of what your main job is.

    Pros

    Very supportive upper management that is willing to take the time to aid your development. Always accessible via phone call and email

    Cons

    Very low pay, PTO accumulates very slowly, not the brightest co workers. Some of the assistant managers are not the brightest folks either.

    Advice to Management

    Improve compensation for skilled employees, recognize skill level of various employees and allow compensation to match this variance.
