    I have been working at Target part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    During slow times of the year (Non-holiday times) hours can be cut. Short amount of time, especially during night shifts, to get everything done with an overwhelming amount to finish.

    Pros

    Loved working here. I started as a Starbucks Barista first and eventually learned multiple work centers, such as Softlines, Hardlines, Food Ave/Target Cafe and Truck Unloading and Stocking. I loved being able to learn and grow with this company.

    The higher ups in our store were extremely dedicated to their jobs and loved helping and coaching. I loved the people that I worked with and it made everyday so much better.

    I also love Target's values. They value community service and diversity and it was a very open environment to work in.

    Cons

    Value every work center. While I worked at Starbucks you could tell that people didn't want to learn or be willing to help us if we were swamped.
