I worked at Target as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Great management experience, you have the opportunity to lead a team and be the acting manager of a 70 million dollar store. Constant feedback through out the internship allows you to grow as a leader. Fun socials with other interns and volunteer events made the internship fun.

Cons

work/life balance. I worked 7am-3:45pm 5 days a week. I worked every other weekend, so I would get a day off during the week to compensate for that. The hours sucked. Every Wednesday I worked 3pm-midnight, and some Sundays I had to be at the store at 6am.

This job would be amazing if the hours werent so bad.

Advice to Management

Do not work the ETLs so hard. STLs need to be more involved.

    I worked at Target full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart people, good company, great experience, highly in demand if you leave. Definitely some good opportunities if you can navigate the system, but eventually there is a good chance of frustration and burnout.

    Cons

    Political hell--one misstep in the eyes of some manager and you can find yourself barred from advancement for a long, long time. No HR support.

    Advice to Management

    Break down the silos.
