I worked at Target full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great benefits, volunteer opportunities, fun atmosphere, great people, this was my first job out of college so it was a great learning environment

Cons

Must have HR and supervisor's ok to apply for new positions, my schedule was not very flexible

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It is frustrating that you can't have direct lines of communication at different levels- I would have to talk to my boss before talking to my boss's boss

    I worked at Target full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    * Opportunity to work across multiple product categories.
    * Super fun culture. (work hard, play hard)
    * Great general business education and responsibility given for younger executives. (I owned a $500MM P&L at the age of 25)
    * I had 9 bosses in 6 years, and 8 out of 9 were solid people to work for. That's impressive.

    Cons

    * Drink the cool-aid. You've gotta fit in with the culture. if you don't, that will hurt your career potential.
    * It's Minnesota, and it's the midwest. You'll encounter passive aggressiveness here & there, and Minneapolis is a relatively homogeneous location. Most people have never left Minnesota/Wisconsin.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go outside of the midwest for talent. Target's awful at segmentation, and it's because no one understands a non-midwest market.
