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

    Pros

    -Great pay for a starting job
    -Offers retail experience and many cross training opportunities
    -Opportunity to gain promotions if you work hard
    -Enough people work there that you're garunteed to find a group you love working with

    Cons

    -Have a good STL? You're in the clear and will enjoy the job. Have a crappy STL? You're basically stuck unless you or they transfer.
    -Hours can go down for little to no reason.
    -Bad exec team can mean little to no communication for things like store hours, open positions, promotions, changes in management, even something like consistency in zoning quality, which leads them to think everything is a mess because you focused on something else other then what they liked.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you have an enviroment of open communication with each other and the team. Not understanding exactly what it is that the ETL's want and being forced to guess what the current LOD wants is what leads to the store being a mess. And for goodness sakes please fire the guy who has been scheduled as a cashier once a week but has shown up for less then half his shifts for a year.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, anyone could work here. Any time I had to study for a test they would give me the day off, no questions asked.

    Cons

    I got treated like a bumbling idiot... Now I am majoring in Computer Science and have a 4.0 (I work at a software house now) and as such took great offense to being treated like dirt by my managers.

    The in-efficiency was staggering. There is something called backstocking, where the morning team-memebers took stuff from the truck and put it away in the backroom. There were two ways to backstock, and they method our morning team used made the night team (me) pull every item they had put away in the morning and put it away using the second method which doesn't cause problems. This is just one example but they did stuff like that all the time.

    I got yelled at by my boss for "going on break before finishing the pulls" but before she started yelling at me she failed to ask/check if I had actually finished the pulls (I had), she did not apologize after realizing her mistake. Another time the store manager told me and a co-worker to put the pallets out for the morning team. I told her that my supervisor said not to put them out before he left but she instead I do it since she was a higher rank. When I got to work my supervisor was very disgruntled about the pallets being out after he told me not to put them out and I explained that the store manager told me to do it. She came by and he asked her about it and she looks shocked and says it was all my idea and when she asked me if we were supposed to put the pallets out I said we need to put them out. After that the co-worker I was with and another manager backed up my story and my supervisor got her to admit that she had lied to transfer blame away from herself. Never got an apology for that either. That was the week before I put in my 2 week notice.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat your employees like idiots.

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

    Pros

    Focus on development for management
    Constant feedback environment
    Great training
    Team environment
    Great communication from the top down

    Cons

    Required to jump through unnecessary hoops just for show
    Focus on ladder climbing
    50 hour work week plus extended hours

    Advice to Management

    They probably have the right people on the team, just make sure they're in the correct position. They invest so much in managers, it makes more sense to keep them and move them around to find the right fit than to simply let them go.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, cool environment to work in. Management is usually willing to help with problems. Good retail experience if people are interested.

    Cons

    Management definitely has a political aspect to it. Work gets repetitive and boring pretty fast. Not very good benefits or discounts for working there.
