    Pros

    Great way to learn how to work as a team
    Get to meet cool new people coworkers and guests alike
    works with schedule
    In my experience it is work but never felt as just an employee

    Cons

    Workload can get overwhelming
    being good at your job will you have you doing another's work who "isn't as fast"

    Advice to Management

    Hold "slower" employees accountable instead of always having someone who actually works pick up the slack for them. Work may be getting done quick but don't assume employees are machines that will keep on being as efficient in other zones after they've done all of theirs.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, Pleasant Customers, Store Activities

    Cons

    Micromanaging, Insufficient hours, Favoritism/nepotism

    Advice to Management

    Pressuring for a plano perfect and quick zone is unrealistic, choose one. Encouraging activities for team members after hours is a great way to build good culture, keep it up.

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

    Pros

    10% stackable discount, insurance offered for long term, full time employees, very flexible scheduling, friendly work environment, and very accepting of all people including people of color and LGBTQ. (in my experience.)

    Cons

    40 hours a week can't be guaranteed, as hours can be (and often are) cut due to low sales.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to visit stores more. Ask store workers what we think we need to be successful in selling before putting plans into place. Sometimes our point of view is needed as we are on the sales floor everyday, and are more aware of what does and doesn't work .

    Pros

    Decent wages, didn't have a problem getting hours

    Cons

    Even when they approve your limited availability, they may still schedule you 35+ hours even though you have a second job that's full-time.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to availability.

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

    Pros

    It was usually pretty easy to pick up extra shifts if you want it except during the really slow months, so I typically would work at least 30 hours/wk even if I was only scheduled for 20.
    It seems relatively easy to get promoted to a specific section or to team-leader position if you work for it and let them know that you're interested, which would give you full time position (and I would assume benefits too). But I never tried as I wasn't willing to work regular 8-5 hours because I had another job that I worked during those hours. And the pay raise is a joke even if you do get promoted (about $.25 I was told by a coworker).
    They'll sometimes have free snacks in the break room.
    At my yearly review, I got a whole $.20 raise. Gee, thanks.
    They offer a 401k (match up to 5%) after 6 months working there (I think that's how long it was).
    If you just need a job, it's pretty easy to get hired during the busy season (late summer for back to school and October-December for the holiday season) and I'm sure it's better than food service.

    Cons

    We were always understaffed, yet they still expected 2 people to do the job of 4 every night.
    The HR people are morons and will consistently schedule you during your unavailable hours no matter how many times you tell them that you still CANNOT work during those hours. Then it's your job to get it fixed even though they're the ones that screwed up.
    The people who consistently no call/no show, who haven't even been working there as long as you, who don't even want to work that many hours, will still be scheduled to work more hours than you, and then the managers will call you on your scheduled day off to come in to work because somebody didn't show up (again). It makes me wonder if they reason they scheduled me for less hours is because they knew they could rely on me to fill in whenever someone didn't show.
    You have to deal with coworkers that don't want to do their job and you're expected to pick up the slack.
    Coworkers will consistently no call/no show, and you're expected to pick up the slack.
    No matter how nice you make an area look, customers will come right behind you and mess it up and you get to clean it up all over again.
    From what I was told, you need a college degree to ever get promoted above team-leader. If you don't have a college degree and you plan on staying in retail, you'd be better off working for Wal-mart. They don't require a degree to move up there and from what I hear, they have the same $10 base pay now.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to reward those who work hard and actually do their job and they may bother to stick around. Don't wait until they put in their two weeks notice to let them know that they're doing a good job.

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

    Pros

    Clean work environment.
    Very organized system.
    Benefits are fair.
    Requesting time off is simple and easy.
    Decent opportunity for OT.
    Management.

    Cons

    I don't believe there's much cons to working here. However if you don't finish your end of the day duties when the store closes on time, you must stay to finish them. The absolute worse time this happened was when we were to get out at 11pm, but didn't leave til 2am.
