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

    Pros

    - Many co-workers were also college students and a similiar age as me. It was easy to connect with them

    - Manager in charge of backroom was strict but reasonable

    -10% company discount card (must pay in cash to use discount)

    - Fast paced/ easy to keep busy. Usually surprised at how fast my 8 hours went

    As long as you are willing to learn, you will definitely be shown the ropes and get used to the job after 2-3 weeks.

    Cons

    - on bottom of corporate chain. I felt like I was easily expendable (and I was).

    Advice to Management

    None

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

    Pros

    It's a job and you are getting paid, not much else to be happy about. The most productive workers tend to get the most hours (as it should be). If you want to work more hours, be sure to get cross trained in every department, including the back for pulling.

    Cons

    Men are expected to work much harder to make up for lack of productivity from the young female work force. The older women typically work very hard, but the young girls do next to nothing in comparison. If you can get past that and just accept the inequality in expectations then its not a terrible place to work. Hours can be hard to come by when they over staff but if you work hard you will get the extra hours over the slackers.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone should be held to the same productivity standards baring a legit disability. Talk to your employees and get to know them better.

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

    Pros

    Some good people, holiday work/pay

    Cons

    lazy coworkers, horrible management on all levels (honestly they don't care for your wellbeing just dignified bullies if you ask me)

    Advice to Management

    Don't work here if you don't know what you're doing. My store basically hired anyone with a degree. Know your stuff or it will cost you and the store.

    It's very family friendly. Almost everyone is great to work with and target carries quality products so it's also a great place to shop.

    Cons

    Overall retail can be tough especially working days like Thanksgiving night or Black Friday.
