    Pros

    Friendly staff and Team Leaders, Fast paced environment, Flexible hours.

    I have been working at Target part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Fast-paced work culture. There is always something to do, and I am definitely one of those types who gets bored easily if there isn't something to do.
    - Awesome team to work with. My store, in general, is amazing. I love the leaders and all the employees. There isn't one person I dislike.
    - Great benefits. I love the 10% discount and the additional food discount and c9 discount. Not to mention an extra 5% with the RedCard. Lots of discounts through other companies on the website as well.
    - Good hours. I always have enough hours given to me, and if not, you can always grab extra hours as other team members usually give them up.
    - Red and Khaki is not a bad dress code. You can wear any red top and any khaki bottoms. I never feel ugly at work because I'm forced to wear a uniform that doesn't fit.
    - Jeans on the weekends.
    - Target is really good about celebrating success by giving food to employees in the break room, especially during the holidays when it gets particularly crazy.

    Cons

    Stores vary. I'm currently at my Third Target. I started out in California and loved my store, then I moved to Minnesota where I took a different role. The store wasn't fun for me, I didn't enjoy the people I was working with and eventually quit because I was so unhappy. Then I applied to a new store for a new position and absolutely love it.

    Not all stores are great, which is a bummer
