    I worked at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work with some awesome people

    Cons

    Terrible management with unrealistic expectation. My store has lost every single team leader in the span of a year because we were all so miserable. They raise wages adequately for everyone except Team Leaders. I was making the same amount as someone just starting out in my position and they couldn't understand how I thought that wasn't fair. Don't expect and caring or understanding of personal issues. If you are sick they will coach you when you use your sick time. I had a family member in the hospital and had to leave an hour early to take care of a bed ridden family member and I got coached. If there is extreme weather and you leave 2 hours early and are still 10 mins late they will still coach you and tell you "you should have left earlier" DO NOT work for this company. It has gone so far downhill in the last 2 years. All of us were getting sick with stress while our ETLs were going on lavish vacations and sitting at their computers all day.

    Advice to Management

    Care about the people you employ. Not just upper management. ALSO stop hiring fresh out of college into ETL positions with no previous experience. They have zero clue what they are doing while the people who have been there for years are stuck.

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

    Pros

    The people that were hired that work with me are very amusing to work with. They make the job fun and the company is also very lenient with kids going to school while working. I was easily allowed to take a leave of absence to attend school in Flagstaff and I was also given the option to easily transfer to a Target closer to my school.

    Cons

    The head of HR does not follow hour requests and taking time off can sometimes be very difficult because so little people work in my department at the store.

    Cons

    Certain LOD's are TERRIBLE and those long weekend shifts are killer.

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

    Pros

    Team Member discount, good hours if you have the availability

    Cons

    Red Cards are more important than employees, won't cross-train you

    Advice to Management

    I know corporate wants everyone to push Red Cards, but somebody has to realize that the credit cards aren't everything. You're losing valuable employees who are willing to dedicate themselves to the company over something like this. It would be more beneficial to you if you had a mix of employees who can deliver on the Red Card quotas and employees who can provide other strengths, such as faster checkout or more accurate guest assistance.

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

    Pros

    It is a very easy job. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. I can pick the hours I want to work.

    Cons

    Dealing with the public and working retail hours. Some pressure to get Red cards and they are hard to get

    Advice to Management

    Don't under utilize your employees. Get to know them to see what they are good at and what they want to do.
