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

    Pros

    Potential for bonuses
    It's fun hanging with the Target staff and seeing how things are done
    Retirement account & other benefits

    Cons

    Not enough preparation:
    I was often in charge of a whole store by myself having only had less than a month of experience.
    Management is not very amiable.
    You have to work at awful hours (it's retail, to be expected)
    Base pay is minimum (retail, to be expected)
    Bonuses/goals are unrealistic to achieve, at least at a slow location.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being a butt. Such attitude, my gosh! If you want results, work with your employees at slower stores for longer times instead of leaving them alone. Coach them through stuff, have a manager show them what the heck they're supposed to do in the plethora of crazy scenarios they have to sort through in a single day. And quite frankly, some of you guys need to work on your people skills.
