    Pros

    Target is a great first job where you can make decent money while working in a team.
    -everyone is friendly and willing to help out
    -group huddles to talk about achievements and new sales.
    -great pay
    -lenient late policy
    -if you work till close, you will feel safe because everyone leaves at once.

    Cons

    -Have to be constantly on your feet
    - good summer job, but no room for advancement
    -if you shift ends at closing time, you will be there another hour to clean up your zone.

    Advice to Management

    -be upfront about closing shifts and try not to schedule an opening shift the very next day.

    Pros

    Plenty of hours, even when they hired a large amount of employees at once, I would still get regular hours.

    Pros

    Pay was good with decent hours during the holidays.

    Cons

    Management was awful. You have to do 20 jobs while trying to push truck and interact with guests/being helpful. Even when you get your work done it could still not be good enough to the team lead because it wasn’t don’t in 15 minutes.

    Advice to Management

    Be on the floor more and actually talk to your team. If they are not doing something rights be more open to retraining them before making them out to be no goodPay

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

    Pros

    Discount, 401K, Flexible-ish hours, Good Experience

    Cons

    Other employees don't take it seriously, no upward mobility, pathetic raises

    Advice to Management

    I was a cashier trained in about every aspect of the store and averaged ~6 Red Cards/day and got a $0.14 raise from corporate. I worked hard, always picked up shifts when asked, had a great attitude, was always on-time, but never internally promoted. That is absurd. Meanwhile at my store there were employees who fooled around the whole day doing nothing but hanging out with their friends who still given hours when I had to compete and pick up shifts. Ultimately, I took the job more seriously than anyone else there did and quit because I felt like a fool for doing so much for that store.
