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

    Pros

    If you don't mind standing in your feet for 10 hours, and being a glorified stock clerk as an " executive" then it's a great place to work, because after 18 months you might be eligible to have a job your interested in

    Cons

    They say they are interviewing you for one position but then sign you to what the district manager needs covered. Was dismissed while in training for not clocking out before my 5th hour several times.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your candidate.

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

    Pros

    The workplace isnt too hard but can get repetitive after a few months. My Team Leads and ETL's actually aren't as bad as many seem to say they're. Every once in a while they will teach and train you on another section.

    Cons

    The pay is not good at all only earning minimum wage. What really sucks for hardlines is that cashiers have a chance to win giftcards if they get a bunch of red cards but us hardlines really dont have any type of chance to get any little reward.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to each other more! Most time different team leads send to do an assignment but then another team lead will send you to do something else.

    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    Work with good people in other departments.

    Cons

    Management does not appreciate their employees. Rather than giving hours to those who need it, they keep bringing in handfuls of new people, and then take hours away from long-time employees.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to appreciate your employees.

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

    Pros

    My superiors were amazing... the overall atmosphere and knowing the store so well, as I am an extreme Target-girl, really made me feel like I was right at home.

    Cons

    The discount wasn't that great, being that %10 was CA's tax. The weekend crowds were expected but back-up for the front lanes wasn't always called for and the place would be jammed in no time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! Don't take employees for granted.
