    Pros

    Easy job, everyone was nice, management cared about you. They don’t make you feel bad when you get sick. If you have to to go to a funeral they care about you and give you the time you need. Hard working co-workers, you can bring up complaints and praise during morning break. Lots of free food and drinks when workload gets tough. You can pick up shifts to get a 40hr week.

    Cons

    Only an hour of sick leave every 40. Sometimes management and the higher ups were not on the same page causing wasted work. Nothing too bad.

    Advice to Management

    Get all leads on the same page so they’re not bickering with each other and wasting time.

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

    Pros

    Made sure we were well trained, great management, most coworkers were fun, shift almost always went by quick since it was busy.

    Cons

    It was kinda like high school where certain coworkers gossiped and it was always obvious. Went from 40 hours every week to like 15 after the holidays unless you've been there for years. I also didn't like that there wasn't a regular and consistent schedule, but that's definitely a personal preference.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing besides try to give more hours to newer employees.
