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

    Pros

    Going in at twenty I didn’t expect to work at Target for an extended period of time. What followed were the four best years of my professional career. You not only get to work with a wonderful team, but you get the chance to prove yourself. A lot of promotions are done in-house.

    Cons

    There is only one true con that I can think of, and that is none other than the terrible red and khaki color combination.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t forget to take care of your team.

    The people you work with are great and they love to give you room to grow! I've been promoted three times in two years and they're still trying to move me up.

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

    Pros

    They are very team oriented. The people are great to work with. I learned so much over my time span at Target. They are very flexible and will work with you while you are in school. I loved everything about my store.

    Cons

    Not enough hours, Hr was not very helpful, some team members never did their jobs so it fell back on others

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to give more hours to the people that do everything they can for the job. Also, HR needs to communicate better with ETLs. The HR should not lie to employees.

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

    Pros

    -Team members are friendly and help each other.
    -Flexible hours for students.
    -The ability of picking up shifts from others.

    Cons

    -No hours after the holiday season was over. (I worked 10 hours in one week).
    -Callouts can be overwhelming, especially when it is only two members closing in softlines.

    Advice to Management

    Give team members more hours in order for them to get at least 20 hours a week instead of hiring more folks. Team members leave because they are not given hours. When there are callouts reach out to team members to see if anyone else would be willing to take a last minute shift.

    I have been working at Target part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Our management at our store is top notch. I love working with all of them. Team that you work with, the holidays, just the experience of being in retail.

    Cons

    When it's the slow season, (not Christmas) there arent enough hours, but that's not their fault. It's a corporate thing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
