  5. "Pretty good job for part time"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Cashier in Rochester, NY
    Current Employee - Cashier in Rochester, NY

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

    Pros

    The store is relatively clean, except around holidays. Nice team members. Able to take another cashier's hours if they are posted, even if you've hit the 20 hr ceiling.

    Cons

    Hours are not even close to what was discussed during interview. I've averaged 12 hours a week since the New Year. That is way below what I need to make a living.
    Many days the store has 1 cashier working alone for a couple hours. Guests get very upset if they need to wait when they are in a hurry.
    Cashiers are expected to push red cards to every guest.
    Some cashiers are too lazy and find ways to occupy themselves so they don't have to wait on guests.

    Advice to Management

    Now that the season has changed, start scheduling more people as cashiers during rush times ( 8 - 9 AM, lunch hour, 3-6 PM), to allow cashiers to give more personal time to guests rather than rushing them out.
    Stop with the red card push. Most guests are return buyers and have already said they aren't interested.
    The rules for cashiers should be the same for all members. Some team leads tend to let the same members get out of doing what's expected without being reprimanded. This includes cleaning up and prepping your register location before leaving your shift. Also, don't waste time walking around the entire cashier location to zone when each cashier should be doing their own location.
