      I worked at Target for more than a year

      Pros

      Company culture Pay Get every other weekend off Having a mentor to walk you through everything. Opportunity to have full time job offer upon completion of the internship.

      Cons

      Depending on the field your place into can have wild hours. I was a logistics intern and has to be at store at 5 AM. Having a good internship is largely depend me on having a good mentor. Do everything possible to have good relationship with your mentor.

      Advice to Management

      Make sure the mentors you place interns with are truly the best of the best. No one deserves to have a bad internship because they have an inexperienced or easily frustrated mentor.
