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

    Pros

    They do a good job of making you feel like you’re apart of a team, offer community outreach opportunities and treats their employees fairly.

    Cons

    Depending on the retail location and the volume of customer demands / runs you need to make to get merchandise on the floor; it could become overwhelming when you are alone, which was pretty common for me.

    Advice to Management

    I’d say plan for more people to be working different areas in small teams if able, instead of only one person per area.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits with a minimum average of 20 hours per week, overall good team environment and management staff. Work well with employees schedules to have a good work/family life balance.

    Cons

    Sometimes department work goals are a little unrealistic. We get more shipment in then we seem to be able to keep up with due to payroll hours/number of team members allowed to work that particular week.

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

    Pros

    pay, coworkers, talking, benefits, 10% discount on everything with 20% extra on fresh produce.

    Cons

    Lazy management. Can't call out lazy people because your're "attacking" them.

    Advice to Management

    How target works; 2 employees, one does 90% of the work and the other does 10% of the work. Target would rather promote the employee doing 10% of the work to a manager and that way the work on the floor is still getting done.

    Pros

    Good hours fun people and team environment. I made great friends while here and learned a lot about merchandising and selling.

    Cons

    Leadership doesn't listen to team members opinions on change. They ask for opinions but, always end up doing what they want instead.

    Advice to Management

    We work on the floor, we may know what works better for ourselves and other team members, listen to us please!

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

    Pros

    -Cares about its employees
    -increasing pay
    -flexible scheduling
    -diverse & accepting
    -good team work & communication

    Cons

    -random hours, lots of weekends & holidays
    -employee discount isn't that much
    -pretty difficult when starting out
    -customers are very VERY messy
    -lots of squatting, standing up and down, physically tiring
    -lots of acronyms to memorize
    -they'll give you however many hours they want to give you, no matter how many you request

    Advice to Management

    Needs more extensive training to new employees. Starting out it felt like I was just stuck on the floor and left to my own devices to figure things out. Within 20 minutes of starting cashier training, I was already put on a lane and told to cashier for real customers. The first week and a half of work I was given no direction so I had to go ask other employees what i should be doing. But once you get the hang of it its actually really easy work and it can be fun and rewarding. Overall target is a good company to work for.

    Pros

    Co workers and management are friendly, understanding, and willing to help by any means

    Cons

    Upper management often places lofty goals for team members that can be difficult to achieve. Hours can often be unexpectedly cut.

    Advice to Management

    Most of the problems experienced happened during transitions into new ways of doing things such as my stores remodel. Better organization and communication is a must during these times.
