    I have been working at Target part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly staff and Team Leaders, Fast paced environment, Flexible hours.

    Cons

    During slow times of the year (Non-holiday times) hours can be cut. Short amount of time, especially during night shifts, to get everything done with an overwhelming amount to finish.

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

    Pros

    Positive environment, very strong company focus on more in-house and advanced programming practices. Lots of events for interns. A very inclusive workplace. There is a large focus on work/life balance that is very appreciated. There are a lot of interesting projects going on as well.

    Cons

    Although they go for a more modern tech development atmosphere, it's still not a tech company (and that's okay!). There are only a few ping pong tables (one, if you're in the downtown location) and no unlimited amounts of coffee. Some interns got really poor placements such as being on teams that didn't fit them.

    I worked at Target (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with a team that allows you a personal connection with those who you work with on a daily basis. Connections with people in the community through both the guests who come into the building and events held in the communities

    Cons

    Unclear direction from upper management on how stores should operate and rash decisions in the new implementation of processes. Pay for executives is not consistent .

    Advice to Management

    Work to bring the leadership team together more through consistent and clear communication involving the company direction. Work to pay those who perform and not make excuses.

    I have been working at Target as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You're given a very good idea of what it feels like to work at Target. It depends largely on your mentor and STL however; some are trying to get you to learn trial by fire style, some remember you're an intern.

    The program itself is very well developed. You'll learn quite a lot in a short period of time. Pay is very good.

    Cons

    As with anywhere else, politics are involved. Target's huge focus is culture. If you're not the exact mold (perky, hyper and almost overly nice) the STL's and DTL's may have an unfair assessment of you.

    Advice to Management

    Different personalities are a positive, not a negative. Some that are a bit more withdrawn can still connect with their teams and make phenomenal leaders.

    I worked at Target as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people really become work family.

    Cons

    No incentive to stay for contractors.

    Advice to Management

    Some people are micro managers. This isn't a healthy way to manage.
