    Pros

    Friendly staff and Team Leaders, Fast paced environment, Flexible hours.

    Cons

    During slow times of the year (Non-holiday times) hours can be cut. Short amount of time, especially during night shifts, to get everything done with an overwhelming amount to finish.

    I worked at Target part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was fun to work with my fellow team members. Same thing every day, unload truck, stock shelves, send to backstock.

    Cons

    Target as a company is really going down hill. They keep creating new teams (eg- Beauty) that are taking unnecessary hours away from departments that need them. Hours are horrible, except during Christmas and sometimes Back to School. Its not uncommon to get 30 hours a week in December then 10 in January. Because of when I started working there, I kept getting the dollar bump ups that they kept adding on. Technically it was nice, but it made me mad that I was making the exact same as the new person walking in when I had been there for three years already.

    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    Team members would nice and easy to get along with. Learned a lot from them as well.

    Cons

    Some days were very unorganized and it was as if management had no idea what they were doing. Also on certain days we would be really understaffed. The scheduling had no order in it sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Get a bit more organized.

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

    Pros

    Training was 2 weeks, but I learned that not everybody had the same caliber of training. Easy to get the hang of, and team members are always willing to help.

    Cons

    Too much drama and lack of work ethic in a lot of individuals. It is minimum wage so that makes sense.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage team members with a good work ethic. Try to understand the position of a sales floor team member before you come up with ideas that make it harder for them to complete tasks.
