Hours are flexible. usually they'll work with you. however, don't expect much in the new era of "modernization" at target. it'll vary from store to store. if you're lucky, you'll get what works for you, and you'll keep it. if you're not lucky, you'll be told "40 hours are no problem" and then get cut to part-time, despite perfect attendance, trained in everything, etc. people work every day just to get 30 hours, if that. this happens.

Target may now pay $15/hour but then hours were cut.

Report answer

10 hour or 12 hour shifts depending on shift. Lots of overtime on the other shift, so you'd be working both.

When I had my interview, I was asked how many hours I would be willing to work. I told them I'd like to work between 30-40 hours a week. Every week my schedule changes...One week it's 12 hours, the next it's 22. I end up covering other people's shifts just to make at least 30 hours a week. There is definitely no structure when it comes to hours at Target. However, once the busy seasons start like Back to School, Thanksgiving/Black Friday, Christmas, etc., that's when you can rake in the hours!

Hours ranged from less than 8 to maybe 25 a week.Too varied to count on. Could not afford to stay.

When it comes to Softlines (apparel) and cashier, your hours can literally vary from 10-35 hours a week.

Awful. They were long and the mangers rarely remembered to give you breaks.

Stores operate long open hours and work shifts start before and end after open hours. Anywhere between 6am and 11pm. Night, weekend, and the fact

The hours change during the year so don't expect anything.
