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

    Pros

    This is a great first job, or even for people with experience. Pay is great and there's good communication in the team.

    Cons

    Customers can be rude, but that's with any retail job. Management was very understanding about any situations that arose though!

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

    Pros

    Some employees seem to care about seasonal part-time workers however some of the younger ones wouldn't even speak and shunned you when entering the break room their phones were more important new hires and or seasonal workers who were there to help get them through the holidays and relieve the pressure on them

    Cons

    I think age is a big factor if your an older person and already there you're okay and protected but if you're older and trying to enter the workforce they will take the younger workers over older workers

    Advice to Management

    Remind your full-time employees that seasonal workers are just as important and help fill the gaps don't treat them like something they scrape off their shoes

    Pros

    Knew of discounts before they came out.
    Had slight discounts on some things.

    Didn't explain that seasonal was longer than the holiday season.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication to the floor managers.
