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

    Pros

    You can get management experience at a young age

    Cons

    Work every other weekend, and minimum one night a week

    Advice to Management

    Have schedule benefits when you gain tenture with the company. New managers and managers that have been with the company for 30 years have the same schedule. There is no benefit to staying for a long period of time.

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

    Pros

    It was interesting to rotate through all the management positions.

    Cons

    No one really cared about the intern. You're the only intern in the store. Did not teach the valuable loyalty skills of a corporate management position. The "leaders" did not like the district manager and it really showed. It was hard to believe that the management followed the chain of command because they always went against what the district manager said. There was a disconnect with management because the district manager only came into the store once and never followed up. How do you expect people to respect you if you don't follow up? Everyone was rejecting change. Taught me all the wrong lessons. I honestly did not feel like anyone wanted me there. They kept telling me "what you put in is what you get out" but whenever I wanted to learn from someone or tag along to observe things they would be annoyed that they have to deal with "the intern". No one made me feel important. Everyone always gave me good feedback and told me that I was doing great all the time and that they would for sure offer me a position because "everyone who is an intern gets an offer" and the last day of my internship they didn't offer me anything. No feedback, no help, I felt alone and they made me to dumb tasks everyday instead of learning how to manage.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make your interns feel lost and unimportant.

    I worked at Target full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work with some awesome people

    Cons

    Terrible management with unrealistic expectation. My store has lost every single team leader in the span of a year because we were all so miserable. They raise wages adequately for everyone except Team Leaders. I was making the same amount as someone just starting out in my position and they couldn't understand how I thought that wasn't fair. Don't expect and caring or understanding of personal issues. If you are sick they will coach you when you use your sick time. I had a family member in the hospital and had to leave an hour early to take care of a bed ridden family member and I got coached. If there is extreme weather and you leave 2 hours early and are still 10 mins late they will still coach you and tell you "you should have left earlier" DO NOT work for this company. It has gone so far downhill in the last 2 years. All of us were getting sick with stress while our ETLs were going on lavish vacations and sitting at their computers all day.

    Advice to Management

    Care about the people you employ. Not just upper management. ALSO stop hiring fresh out of college into ETL positions with no previous experience. They have zero clue what they are doing while the people who have been there for years are stuck.
