    Pros

    Can grow with the company and transfer to any Target across the country. Can obtain knowledge about different processes through out the store. What you put in, is what you get back.

    At times can be very political. Sometimes skilled people with substance are overlooked for flash. This is expected, as alot of companies are similar.

    Keep listening to the stores team members and leadership.
