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

    Pros

    Management left you alone and let you do your job. As long as you got your work done no one bothered. Very flexible when asking for time off.

    Cons

    No room for being promoted from within. Felt like I was in high school again with working with younger people that talked and gossiped about other co-workers. They talked more than they got work done.

    Advice to Management

    Company needs to higher people that actually do work and take the seriously.

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

    Pros

    It's a good part time job, i can only work for two days in a week. Good benefits for team member

    Cons

    Some of team members didn't do their job in terms of the promotional price, sometimes they forgot to remove the signs that leads to customer confusion.

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

    Pros

    Good coworkers for the most part
    Get days off as long as you request it in advance

    Cons

    They push employees get customers to sign up for RedCards a lotttt

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge that your methods of pushing for more RedCards can lead to some questionable tactics. Stop putting so much pressure from the top down without knowing what it takes to actually get people to sign up. Not everyone wants a store credit card and cashiers can't change that.

    I worked at Target part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    you get 10% off employee discount only if you pay with cash or purchase gift cards (with CC) i

    Cons

    There weren't any promotional opportunities where I worked, they rather hire a new person who knows nothing about the job than promote one of the employees who have been working there for years.

    The starting pay is slightly more than the minimum wage and the yearly raise is between .05 - .50 cents depending on how much they like you.
