    I have been working at Target part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The guests are understanding. That's it. Nothing else is good about Target. If I could give them a "zero" star, ie no star, I would....but I couldn't. Glassdoor should include that please. At least Target are paying better now to the new hires.

    Cons

    I would not recommend. I think WalMart, Costco, and other retail stores are better to work for then Target. Oh, if the management doesn't like you, you are not their favorites, they will falsely write you up, or fine pick at you, or say bad things about you or give you a bad rating when it comes time for the review. They will also slowly decrease your hours too. When you first start working, you could be getting 35-40 hours. After several months, it will go down, then if you stay long enough (ie 2-5 years or 15 years) they will move you to part time and give your hours to the new hires and give you only 3-4 hours a shift, 2-3 days a week...yay. Management doesn't care about your situation (if you have any). They are also selfish because of that, they only care about their bonus. If you are a minority race in the store, they will gang up on you and look down at you. The management plays favorite too. Their favorites can get away with doing something they are not suppose too, but if you do the same thing, you get written up. If you are sexually harassed, they will ask you what you want done. The pay increase is also based on favorites too, not on work ethics or how much you've done or how well you've done. If you work cashier, they will make you push the red cards, either debit or credit cards. It's like you're in sales, there's a quota the store should meet. If you work on the floor, you're expected to work cashier too, be a jack of all trades. They work you hard. The "teamwork" is, you work individually, by yourself, with no useless talking expect to their "guest". But even then, if you take too long helping a "guest" you get a talk or you're look down on by management. They only staff the bare minimum people actually "working" (and not just standing around, chatting like management and their favorites) so if someone calls out, they are short by alot and everyone else "working" needs to put more in their weight. Everything that you want to do, vacation, paid time off, schedule changes, it's all through the computer. If you want to talk with someone about it, good luck. AND, even if you do put the request in the system, it can be auto denied for no reason at all and management may not even look at it. It's almost like a electronic call system, no human, in the store that you're working at, which is sad and funny that's it's like that.

    I have been working at Target part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The two targets I've been to have nice social atmosphere and protection policies are enforced well, There's usually room to move up but it requires hard work and long days. This is a good place to earn an honest living

    Cons

    however there company is always pushing for higher productivity and overloading employees with tasks Social time is alright but will be in the way of higher hours. Company standard to keep most everyone part time

    I worked at Target

    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.
