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

    Pros

    Great pay, friendly coworkers, good hours, able to cross train,

    Cons

    Transfering stores is hard, and if you do the team leads treat you differently because they didn't train you and therefore feel threatened
    HR cares more about company than employees
    When you ask for electronically request less hours it gets "erased" and when you ask HR they tell you to do it electronically

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

    Pros

    flexible schedule
    able to get more hours if needed

    Cons

    it's a old fashioned place, definitley needs some updates to match the one on University (no self check out, no Starbucks, and I think the cashier machines are not up to date which makes for a slow and lengthy checkout). Not having a Starbucks at this location defeats the 5% discount with a Target RedCard and the convenience of that amenity...

    Advice to Management

    maybe just take into consideration that some extra things would add to the Target experience.

    They value their employees, you can express yourself and your individuality, body piercings or tattoos it doesn’t matter.

    Only offered a seasonal position instead of one that I applied for.
