    Tons of team building meetings and strong focus on team work to finish projects and clean up store.

    Keep doing what you're doing because it works!

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

    Pros

    During my time there they were great about scheduling me according to my availability and requested (non-paid) days off as long as they were submitted early enough. The pay is also on the higher end of what you'll find in retail and part-time jobs so that's what kept me going throughout my seasonal position.

    Cons

    Even when you've zoned an area thoroughly, it's never good enough and it. never. ends. Every time I was working on something (pickups, hanging/folding clothes, reshop, etc.) a supervisor or manager would come up and tell me to go over the whole zone again even when I had so many other things to attend too. Hard work was never recognized and they really ride your butt about getting EVERYTHING done perfectly in a timely manner when over and over even with a whole team of people working it was NEVER enough time/manpower.

    Advice to Management

    The store could be run more efficiently and productively if half the staff weren't being let go every few months and hiring/training new people in their stead (repeat, repeat, repeat). I would have wanted to work there longer if hard work was at least acknowledged and the turnover rate wasn't as ridiculous as it is. It's a pain to have to explain to newcomers every few weeks how to do the job when the people we had before could've just stayed. Try changing that and you'll have a happier and motivated work force, unlike it was during my time there.

    I worked at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    flexible
    good pay for the position
    room to move around to different work areas

    Cons

    It is hard to move up within the store to a manager position
    transferring to another store should be easy but every time I did it it was hard or unsuccessful

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the people who are working hard more not just at raise review every year.

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

    Pros

    Benefits were offered to part-time employees. Schedule was flexible around college courses. Pay was higher than other retailers in my area.

    Cons

    Was scheduled until 10:00 pm but was told that meant I was closing and the store closed at 11:00pm. Should have put 11 on my schedule then.

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

    Pros

    I really enjoyed working here for the most part and my coworkers were awesome. Yes it was hard work with annoying customers but it was always lively and I came out of there with a lot of good stories.

    Cons

    The bosses are always terrible. I’ve worked at two different Targets and the bosses are always terrible at scheduling. They’re just so detached from what it’s like as a regular employee. They never listen to anything you have to say either.

    Advice to Management

    Better scheduling is a must. Reviews of management.


  10. "Good for a first Job, but not for me"

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

    Pros

    It was a good first job, I got work experience I needed. The team members were generally helpful and no one was nasty to me. I think if your a people person and you enjoy costumer service it would be fun. I just am not.

    Cons

    I didn't feel like I was doing anything meaningful, the work was repetitive and boring. Also I had trouble lowering hours to deal with my class schedule. I think retail just isn't for me.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier for employees to adjust their hours.
