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

    Pros

    Easy job. My team was very easy to get along with. Plenty of advancement opportunity so long as you have a degree and actively search out higher positions.

    Cons

    This job single handedly made me never want kids.

    Advice to Management

    Cart pushers need music to stay sane.

    I have been working at Target part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love working at Target. I started out as seasonal and 7 years later I'm still working. The management is awesome and everyone works as a team. I have made some great friendships over the past few years.

    Cons

    The only bad part is, when its during the slow months not enough hours, but that is typical and I live through it for a few months.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, competitive wages, good work culture with fellow employees, opportunities for cross-training, good company values

    Cons

    Management can be ineffective, employees need to be very proactive to get noticed if they have any concerns, corporate tunnel-vision, schedule flexibility can sometimes not work in your favor, little-to-no upward mobility

    Advice to Management

    When your employees are happy, respected, and feel listened to, the work will be done more effectively.

    "Target"

    Former Employee - Sales Floor/Softlines Team Member
    Former Employee - Sales Floor/Softlines Team Member

    I worked at Target (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good as a first job/summer job to learn how to socialize better, interview for jobs better, etc. Also, getting retail experience was helpful in better understanding a big corporation's day-to-day operations, and how they run.

    Cons

    Although being a minimum/near-minimum wage job, locations with a lot of annual sales (top 5-10 nationally) push workers to unrealistic standards. Also, the softlines department had a high employee turnover rate due to many quitting (partly because of what I mentioned above).

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

    Pros

    You get a whopping 10% discount if you pay in cash.

    Cons

    The management at target is simply unprofessional. Majority of the team leads have favorites, and if you are not a favorite things work against your favor. I worked there 3 years and I rarely called out, would come in on my days off if called in, and was always on time but was never offered a promotion. Other workers are late, call out often or simply don’t show up for their shifts, yet don’t get penalized. If you have been there for maybe 3 months and are a favorite they move you up quickly. Extremely unfair and there’s nepotism as well so if you have a family member that works at target they’ll hire you and give you lots of hours and promote you quickly. It’s too much hard work with little incentive for the hard workers.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t have favorites it’s extremely unfair and highly unprofessional. You’ll lose hard working members like that.

    I have been working at Target (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    . Laid back environment
    . You can easily make new friends
    . Work is easy.

    Cons

    . Less hours

    . Most times you are force to stay late to help zone/organized other section of the store even when you finish your zoning your department.
    . Sometimes you deal with stupid store managers and team leaders like for example they will schedule less people on a Sat & Sun

    Pros

    45 minute lunches and the coworkers

    Cons

    - Management is terrible and conflicts with each other on what needs to be done on a daily basis.
    - you're required to take your breaks but the amount of pressure and fear of being coached for not completing a task before hand, will make you feel the need to choose if you should even take a break
    - rules changing is a given in any workplace but it shouldn't be happening every day

    Advice to Management

    Your "brand walks" are a waste of time.
    Stop pinning all the blame on the Team Leads because they are the only true leaders in the building that actually care.
    Stop treating your team members like trash and belittling them, especially over the walkie or in front of guests.
    No one can trust to talk to HR anymore because nothing is confidential and you'll end up like all the other team members and leaders; coached and belittled daily until they leave.
