    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.

    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.

    Pros

    10% Discount, Flexible hours, the people you work with are nice enough, gives you a good handle on what its like to work in a retail position.

    Cons

    Not an acceptable pay for the amount of work you are doing. Its easy to fall into the cracks if your new and they miss doing your reviews (pay adjustments) until later than everyone else. Personally Ive crossed trained to every area of the store, and for each specialty (fitting room, electronics, grocery, guest services) its generally a 25 cent raise but Im only 14 cents above the base pay

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to review your team members and pay them accurately.

    I worked at Target part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours depending on location, opportunities to cross-train, fun co-workers, work is not difficult. It's perfect for a college job.

    Cons

    Weak pay raises, personal growth, management is corrupt and power hungry, extra hours overwhelming, and back up cashiering interferes with sales floor work.

    Advice to Management

    The corporation as a whole needs to value both guests AND team members. Customer service is suffering because team members are treated poorly by TLs and ETLs who have unrealistic expectations. Guests also do not want to save ONLY 5% through Red Cards. The company needs to rethink sales ads and deals because getting a $5 gift card back for buying 5 tubs of 3.50 ice cream is not a steal, even with Cartwheel.
