    Pros

    I genuinely love Target as a company, and agree with their values. I had a unique experience working in the Starbucks, but I was still very much included in the Target atmosphere and culture. It was an overall great experience.

    Cons

    My store had some very rigid management, which took some getting used to, but all of the people I worked directly under were great people and treated me with respect and understanding.

    Management was not good. They kept replacing studs with duds. That's when I got out.

    Listen to your employees! You're not God because you make more money than the regular team members.
