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

    Pros

    Pays well, and most of management is kind.

    Cons

    Ignores availability, and punishes you for not attending, even when notifying in advance that you were unable to work at that time. Applied for year round, but was laid off, told I was put in the system as seasonal.

    Tldr; Management can't keep anything straight.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate and actually fix problems when you clearly know how.

    Pros

    leadership training opportunities, they encourage TLs to work up to ETLs. Pay is pretty good for the job that it is. Schedule for TLs is fairly consistent.

    Cons

    It's retail, it's not for everyone.

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

    Pros

    $14 an hour
    Relatively easy job, not physically demanding

    Cons

    Overall management is not good. Most of the time it seems like they don't know what they are doing. They don't know how to balance the workload with scheduling employees, and everyone suffers because of it. Either you have to go in on your day off or you are stressed out because there is way too much to get done. The store is constantly understaffed and behind, 24/7.

    Advice to Management

    Please get better about understanding how much work needs to get done and how many employees it takes to get that work done. Also, consider having employees in more specific roles like the way it was earlier in 2018.

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

    Pros

    Good discount, 10% on everything except alcohol, 20% on healthy items (produce. Exercise stuff). Good about scheduling requests.

    Cons

    They don't promote older people, even when we have management experience.
    Many people I know left because of this.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people over 45 with respect. We have a lot of valuable experience.
