    Pros

    Friendly Staff, Decent pay, very easy going environment

    Cons

    Physically intense work, Hours have changed and it makes it easier to complete the job

    Advice to Management

    Keep the overnight staff hours actually overnight. The trucks are the same size and it is a lot harder to finish stocking when the store is open.

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

    Pros

    - Opportunity to Advance from Within with hard work.
    - Enjoyed my Co-Workers and the values my store had when starting. These values deteriorated over time, I cannot speak for every target location regarding this.
    - 10% Employee discount on almost everything in the store that can be coupled with sales/coupons and the 5% store card discount.
    - Depending on the departments you work you can get resume experience that can get you elsewhere.

    Cons

    - Asked to perform a large number of tasks including sales with often little to no adequate compensation
    - Expected to handle disgruntled customers and to keep up with your other work, if you're not management you can often get harassed even though you were simply helping a customer (which takes time).
    - Expected to religiously push the store credit/debit cards especially on the register all stores have a daily/weekly quota and managers are more than happy to harass you about it.

    Pros

    free starbucks and 10% discount

    Cons

    They tell you you'll be full time, but keep you at minimum hours so they don't have to pay benefits.

    Pros

    Great team focused on customer service at all time. Flexible hours and decent pay. Loved the employee discount. Excellent part time for a little bit more cash.

    Cons

    Organizing the store after big sales. Late night shifts. Poor communication from team leader and, like any other place, the lazy teammates.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to have great interview procedures. Go the extra mile to hire competitive staff.
