    I worked at Target as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Working at Target as an executive intern was definitely one of the best learning experiences in my life. Target is big on developmental opportunities and there is a huge emphasis on teamwork.

    Cons

    Retail hours are a bit difficult to overcome as you work weekends and late nights.

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

    Pros

    Everyone was really friendly, the money was nice and they give you hours so your checks are always nice. It's kind of a laid back environment as long as everyone pulls their own weight.

    Cons

    Everyone is really nice but they were also really nosy. Word of advice keep your business to yourself. I always say Target talks and they really do. Sometimes if you go above and beyond it won't be noticed which can be very frustrating.
