    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.

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

    Pros

    Friendly staff and Team Leaders, Fast paced environment, Flexible hours.

    Cons

    During slow times of the year (Non-holiday times) hours can be cut. Short amount of time, especially during night shifts, to get everything done with an overwhelming amount to finish.

    Pros

    Its fine if the people you work for are.

    Cons

    It's often physically demanding. My 'dogs' are barking after an 8.5 hour shift.

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

    Pros

    Scheduling time off and making usre you had enough hours was really easy, especially for a high school student. They have a Leave of Absence, so if you have to take time off for college, you can come back and get hours for your break.

    Cons

    Cashier was exhausting, they need to make the shifts shorter, allow water bottles, and/or add time to just walk around and leave your position for a second. The emphasis on RedCards was absurd, especially if you live in a small town -- everyone in the small town has already decided at this point whether they want one or not, stop trying to shove it down their throats.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in employees who's sole purpose is to stand in for cashiers every hour so they can take a lap around the store to allow them to regroup and be better able to greet customers.

    The TLP program i s really tailored to help entry level engineers learn. The engineers are very welcoming and willing to help. Minneapolis is also a really great place to work.

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

    Pros

    It was fun to work with my fellow team members. Same thing every day, unload truck, stock shelves, send to backstock.

    Cons

    Target as a company is really going down hill. They keep creating new teams (eg- Beauty) that are taking unnecessary hours away from departments that need them. Hours are horrible, except during Christmas and sometimes Back to School. Its not uncommon to get 30 hours a week in December then 10 in January. Because of when I started working there, I kept getting the dollar bump ups that they kept adding on. Technically it was nice, but it made me mad that I was making the exact same as the new person walking in when I had been there for three years already.
