    I worked at Target part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    10% discount The only pro, tbh.

    Cons

    Poor management. Red Cards requirement.(2 a day). -the "Lead" will receive all the credit- Manager will embarrass you in front of the "guests" for not opening cards. Very competitive environment. Customers are very rude. Poor training system. Dress code. Have to open a card to get discount.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees, take their feedback into consideration. Dont be rude to your employees about red cards. Dont make a scene for opening cards. Stop favoriting your employees. Have maps of the general sections of the store. Have better training system. Take time to actually know your employees.

    I worked at Target part-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    -As a full time student, Target worked with my schedule and gave me hours in the afternoons and weekends. -Team member discounts of 10% -Educational Leave of Absence

    Cons

    I worked at Target for over four years and it was incredibly difficult getting a fair raise and recognition from team leaders for our hard work. Our store was the “best rated” in the region but yet we got paid the least starting off. It was especially discouraging to see how they treated team members who worked there longer, less hours and raises of less than 25 cents. Management has favorites and will give team members...

    Advice to Management

    Value your workers, especially those who have been there for years. Give fair raises to hard working team members. Don’t cut hours to experienced team members because at the end of the day they are the ones carrying out all the work.

    I worked at Target part-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling is the only thing that is positive about this company the discount they give employees is only 10% which is not worth it after what you’re put through.

    Cons

    Can’t use your employee discount unless you pay cash or have a target card which is ridiculous. Development is nothing but favoritism. This is definitely not a company that cares about their employees. Management is self centered. Executives are difficult to work with as they put their selves on a pedestal above other team members clearly showing they think they’re more important. Don’t even bother with HR they don’t...

    I worked at Target for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The Job itself is pretty easy, Point of Sale system takes 5 minutes to learn maybe a week or so to master. Sometimes you get a really good LOD ( their term for a manager) that can be very helpful in the training purposes Good Job for Teens/College kids to get experience in retail. A lot of the cool employees realize the corporate culture is redundant and just keep their head low, you can meet some cool people...

    Cons

    Passive aggressive hiring and firing techniques, One week you'll be working 39.5 next week you'll be working 5. They work you hard when they need you but once xmas is over they start shedding the weight and cut hours. The departments are highly segregated, you will never see electronics, stockers, backend, and night shift people depending on where you end up in the company. The corporate culture is forced and...

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to stick to that corporate culture, you guys should really do some demographic research to see what would click with your employees. If you want to sell your red cards, give employee's incentives too instead of punishing them for not selling enough. Selling credit cards is a hard business and it's not what the Cashier's signed up for they aren't sales people they check people out. If I was the...
