    I have been working at Target

    Pros

    Everyone is very nice overall. The company is good about breaks and lunches

    Cons

    They have vibe talks at the end of each shift nd you have to discuss with a manager about your day if you got Red Cards

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand red cards are important but maybe try actually caring about us a little more

    I worked at Target as an intern

    Pros

    -Great Staff and Mentors to help you along the way
    - Very Hands-on training
    - Unbelievable Internship responsibility. I was in charge of the store within the first month
    - Wonderful company culture

    Cons

    - The work schedule was very dynamic, which meant I was waking up at 2AM or 2 PM, depending on the day
    - Retail business is just stressful

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish the internship program would have allowed for me to work more with other interns. But overall, I think the program was a great opportunity.

    I have been working at Target full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Target accepts you for who you are. There is not certain "mold" that you have to fit to be appreciated!

    Cons

    Opportunities to advance are not as available as they are with other companies. Promotions and moves become a waiting game.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop and say thank you to your teams every once and a while. We work very hard store side and we don't get enough credit
