    I worked at Target part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Worked with some really great people and honestly a great job to get started in customer service. This place has definitely taught me a lot over the 6 years I worked there!

    Cons

    There isn't really a lot of room to progress and move up and sometimes it can take a really long time if you want that to happen.

    Advice to Management

    Treasure your employees! Especially the ones who put in all those years of service and are consistently great at their jobs!

    You could work basically when you need to which is great for a uni student.

    Look for people who want to advance instead of keeping them as an average team member, it demotivates employees.
