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

Pros

Great relationships formed with the team members and guests. Flexible schedule. Good team member rewards for productivity.

Cons

No opportunities for advancement at my store. A new target store opened less than 5 miles from our store which significantly reduced our sales, and reduced pay roll, making it very difficult to perform tasks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create more of a relationship with the team members rather than just being their boss. It's really appreciated when the management knows something about your life.

    Friendly working environment that's both rewarding and challenging.

    I worked at Target as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Team working environment. Offering some small perks around busy holidays only (black Friday/Xmas time frame) that may include higher pay per hour to specific 'gift rewards' depending on your work performance, and flexible part time working schedules.

    Cons

    Challenging around the hectic busy days (black Friday/Xmas time frame) due to working with less Tm. members that have this type of experience around this time frame. (Learn fast & pick up the pace or you will get over-whelmed with 'Guests' and job tasks). If working seasonal hiring, your hours can be adjusted w/ less hrs. towards the end of your contract.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps add a "specialist" for the toys only section during the hectic busy days (black Friday/Xmas time frame) vice integrating them into Electronics even though they don't specify/tell you that' you'll be responsible for all the sections/rows of toys as well as all electronics as well.
