    I have been working at Target part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, fun team (if you're lucky), they buy us food sometimes, relaxed environment

    Cons

    Not enough hours, expect too much from a short shift, rude guests

    Advice to Management

    Ask team members what they want/need in their sections. Management tends to change things without asking team members if it would be useful or not.

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

    Pros

    Great team work, employees are treated well, the leaders are very helpful and inspirational, they take a healthy work environment very seriously, team leaders and other superiors are very understanding and approachable.

    Cons

    Sometimes the store can have an unequal ratio of guests who need assistance vs available team members on the floor. So you may fall behind on other tasks in order to get other tasks done, due to a high traffic situation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing; being inspirational, motivating, open and honest, giving your 110%, and doing what's best for the team and the store.

    I worked at Target part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They do provide benefits and such. It is a decent company to work for, especially for teens/young adults or first job experience.

    Cons

    The workload can be a bit overwhelming at times. You are constantly trying to put items back where they go and keep everything looking neat.

    I have been working at Target full-time

    Pros

    This was a great job. The softness department is very active and in the beginning it took some getting used to.

    Cons

    The days aren't consistent as well as the shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Take into account of employees needs in terms of schedule.

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

    Pros

    My coworkers were amazing and my managers were like friends to us so we had a lot of leniency when it came to breaks. That's the only positive of this job. It was like a family environment. They are very flexible with school schedules which is always a plus.

    Cons

    Corporate expects us to do way more than humanly possible within a short time frame. The customers ( I refuse to call those heathens "guests") we got were absolutely horrible. They made the job unbearable. No respect and always felt entitled. Employees get almost no raises and put up with more than we should. The employee discount only pays for the taxes of most purchases. The hours we're crazy. I would come in at 4pm and not leave till 3am, knowing I had an early class the next day. Softlines would be the last to leave the store because we had so much to do. "I would quit if I worked in softlines" would be the tag around the store from anyone not working in softlines.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate should visit during closing hours instead of opening hours just to see how much workload the employees have to deal with. Also, a little more positive reinforcement would be nice.

    I have been working at Target part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They allow for a very flexible schedule, they allow tattoo, gauges, colorful hair etc., very diverse, coworkers are very friendly, starting Pay is above minimum wage

    Cons

    Some team leads aren't nice or helpful, most days the work load is unbelievable and almost impossible, the higher ups have often yelled at team members for being slow and inefficient even though they aren't working slower just trying to cope with an impractical work load, they don't like to hire full time so many work near 40 hour weeks but will never get benefits, it often feels like they are understaffed for their expectations
