    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.

    "Target"

    Former Employee - Sales Floor/Softlines Team Member
    Former Employee - Sales Floor/Softlines Team Member

    I worked at Target (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good as a first job/summer job to learn how to socialize better, interview for jobs better, etc. Also, getting retail experience was helpful in better understanding a big corporation's day-to-day operations, and how they run.

    Cons

    Although being a minimum/near-minimum wage job, locations with a lot of annual sales (top 5-10 nationally) push workers to unrealistic standards. Also, the softlines department had a high employee turnover rate due to many quitting (partly because of what I mentioned above).

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers

    Multiple Breaks + a Lunch break

    Nice pay for a first job or part time. Even can be nice for a full time job of a young person.

    Cons

    Trucks can sometime bring in a ton of freight which can be tiresome but honestly, there are no cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

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

    Pros

    You'll learn a lot. I've been with the company 2 1/2 years and started just knowing flow work ( opening boxes and stocking shelves). Six months later I was introduced to Presentation, where you execute sales planners and set up displays. I also learned the backroom operations. Knowing more helps when your position is low in work because you can pick up hours in other areas.

    So learn as much as you can. The opportunities are there.

    Cons

    There's always some point in the year where they will begin to cut hours for their full time employees and hire new people. It can be very frustrating. When the hours get ridiculous, I pick up a part time job.
