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

    Pros

    -Good training process and ability to work in different departments
    -Decent pay
    -Chill environment

    Cons

    -Inconsistent scheduling hours. Maybe it was just me, but some weeks I worked lots of hours, and some weeks I worked a lot less. However, you can always talk to your ETL to get more hours.

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

    Pros

    Employee discount was a big plus. Store management was very nice and helpful especially HR. Were very understanding when I had a death in the family.

    Cons

    Bad training, discouraged from reporting on the job back injury. Was often sent home after only working a few hours because of payroll budgeting. Scheduling tool was awful, my hours were super messed up

    Advice to Management

    Increase level of training so people actually know what they're supposed to do. Scheduling tool needs to be updated, my requests for fewer hours never went through the system & I ended up working 30+ hours while going to school full time (I wanted to work like 15)

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

    Pros

    If you would've asked me a year ago i would've had something to put here.

    Cons

    "Expect More, Pay Less" is the way they treat there Team Members

    Advice to Management

    Be fair and respectful to all Team Members not just the favorites. Reason why Targets turnover rate is so high at some stores.

    I have been working at Target part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The hours are flexible, if you have school, they will work around it.
    Some of the managers are okay.
    You get time and a half on certain holidays.

    Cons

    Hours go way down during the beginning of the year, about 10-12 hours a week! Also, most managers pick favorites, and promote from there.

    Advice to Management

    Target is beginning to be way to guest focused to where the employees don’t matter anymore, used to be a great company, now it’s all politics.

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

    Pros

    Management has been helpful with any problems that come up. My coworkers are great overall. They are pretty flexible with my school schedule.

    Cons

    Management fails to communicate with me fairly often which can be frustrating. Hours and scheduling can be inconsistent at times.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to better communicate its intentions to team members. Whether it be a change in scheduling or a change of work center, all details should be discussed.
