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

    Pros

    -The pay is decent.
    -The work was quite straightforward - just putting stuff on shelves, for the most part.
    -Some of my co-workers were cool people, I liked that they have a big diversity push.

    Cons

    - Management was infuriating to deal with. I was "asked" to stay past 6 hours often, and when I'd turn them down (Vacations, plans, appointments, ect.) they would frequently get hostile and threaten to fire me. Once I told them I was leaving in two weeks, I was treated terribly, to the point that I decided the full two weeks wasn't worth the treatment.
    - Hours. I was part time, yet expected to work 6 hours a day, occasionally 6 days a week. 36 hours is not part time, but if they pretend you work part time, they don't have to give you benefits. When I interviewed, I was told the days were four to eight thirty, or nine at the latest. I was there until one in the afternoon, once, and staying past ten was common.
    - Several of my co-workers were aggressive, and management did little about it. One of my co-workers was constantly insulting other people. Another one was lazy, constantly made mistakes, and would lose his temper constantly. They were also very transphobic, and when that was complained about, he was told he couldn't talk about that when the store was open. What about his co-workers? I guess we didn't matter.
    - The work is backbreaking, and you are expected to work as hard as possible for the 5/6+ hours you are there.

    Advice to Management

    - Treat your employees like human beings, not like "labor". Respect that people schedule their lives around a schedule, and if it's not consistent, people will have other plans. On the other side, if someone's being hostile in the workplace, it doesn't matter how much you need employees, it's going to drive people away to keep them working there.

    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.
