    I have been working at Target part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working at Target has taught me many qualities needed in a work environment and I have worked so hard. I am one of the best employee's they have, not only because I am a hard worker, but because I am very well rounded. I was trained for the sales floor, but I made sure I was also knowledgeable in the other sales floor positions, fitting room, cashier, and one of these days guest service. I have only been working at Target...

    Cons

    The only cons would be some of the staff. With constantly rotating in and out employees makes it hard to really bond and work together. Even sometimes with the necessity of more employees, management would take in those individuals who are hard to work with, but even then you learn how to work with them and be flexible. Also another con is that in the very beginning I was told I couldn't work there if I wasn't available...

    Advice to Management

    Very flexible, but I would suggest maybe better benefits.

    I have been working at Target part-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Pays higher compared to other retails

    Cons

    Unpractical workloads. No hours during non holidays. Poor leadership

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring team leaders straight from college. Move up hard working team members instead.

    I have been working at Target part-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Simple work, lots of interaction with people, make a new network of friends that can potentially last a lifetime.

    Cons

    A lot of targets close late, the pay is decent not great, little to no benefits unless you work 40 hours a week, almost no opportunity for overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time getting to know your employees instead of treating them like an object that is only meant to fulfill one task.

  4. Fun Place To Work and Learn

    I have been working at Target part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    It's a fun place and they take the time to train you well. They reward you when you do well and try to help you do better when you aren't performing your best.

    Cons

    Being on your feet all day

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Target full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    People are awesome Discounts are decent It's a paycheck

    Cons

    Low retail pay Retail hours can get draining after awhile. Promotions take forever to happen. Even with a college degree. Unless you went to the internship program expect 2 years minimum for a team lead position. Expect 5 years or longer for a salaried position depending on performance (with a degree). Annual raises are a joke No bonuses for employees on the front lines. Executives reap all the glory on that one....

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within. Quit hiring people straight out of college with no experience and having people in stores that have been there for 5 years or longer train their future boss. Makes no sense since all separating these two is a piece of paper.

  7. Good pay but poor systems

    I have been working at Target full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Good pay. Lots of diversity. New concepts are tried for employee satisfaction.

    Cons

    Expensive benefit plan. No schedule flexibility. Leaders don't allow team members ownership of their background to feel included. Guests allowed to yell and scream at team members without any support from management. Systems are always down.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for team members to express their heritage and ethnic background. Invest in a new system. You put team members in an impossible position when systems don't work and it's out of the team member's control to help the guest. Find better talk offs than condescending statements that make the guest feel disrespected and the team member like an idiot for having to say something so ignorant that a 5 year old wouldn't believe....

    I have been working at Target part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Pay honestly isnt horrible. Job is not difficult.

    Cons

    Target HR is an absolute joke and spend their day doing absolutely nothing while checking up on you every once in a while. I was a Barista and you are not allowed to accept tips even though every single customer tries to give you one which is ridiculous because Target considers it "stealing" They have alot of stupid standard corporate rules as well and they are always understaffed and nobody cares.

    Advice to Management

    let us take tips
