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

    Pros

    The managers were very patient and easy-going! Working the register was the best part, it made time go by swiftly. The customers, most being tourists, were very friendly and personable. Coworkers were very helpful, also. Everyone leaves the job at night together for safety precautions.

    Cons

    If you're closing, you may expect to be out by 12:30 but won't actually leave until 1:30AM some nights.

    I worked at Target part-time

    Pros

    10% employee discount, some people are cool to work with

    Cons

    Managers expect way to much for the time frame they give you and how much they pay you. They never do anything like they should until they have a visit and then they run everybody ragged trying to play catch up

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better and you'll get people who actually do their job properly. You can't treat people like dirt and expect them to work hard

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

    Pros

    Good pay, lots of people to work with, nice uniforms, great products to sell.

    Cons

    Some people who work there can be snippy with you. Just be careful with what you say and do but you can't please everyone!

    Advice to Management

    listen to your employees more. Don't take just one side of the story because there is two. Don't be buddy buddy, but don't be a dictator either.

    Pros

    Target is a vibrant company to work for, I like the blend of fun and service the company adopted. Team members are great and there is never a dull moment.

    Cons

    If there is a downside to working at Target, it is the pressure to succeed and best the company's previous year average in sales.

    Advice to Management

    At Target, the leadership needs to get to know the team members more and not just the leaders. Leaders who visit stores should visit with the team members who do not have "leader" attached to their title.
