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

    Pros

    Good management experience
    Learn how to work with a lot of different people from different backgrounds
    Management was very transparent - got to see everything from hiring to firing to higher level meetings and everything in between
    Pay was great and is for the full time job right out of college as well
    Got experience in every division of the store
    Was able to learn every area and then take a leadership role in that area
    The team took to me really well
    Allowed me to get more experience in whatever area I needed
    Lots of freedom and room for professional development
    Didn't have to sit behind a desk - was constantly on the move looking for opportunities and interacting with guests

    Cons

    Can get monotonous
    There are times when you will have to stock shelves and do some menial work
    Have to work every other weekend and holidays for the full time position
    Hours are highly variable

    Advice to Management

    Allow the intern to get more experience with the planning and reports to see big picture
    Continue to be transparent and allow intern to see everything that they would in the full time position

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

    Pros

    Discount, managerial experience, decent salary for new grad

    Cons

    When you calculate the salary per hour spent working (and, more so, spent simply stocking shelves, it's not that great of money), spend most of the time doing hourly-type tasks despite being a "manager"

    Culture and Diversity. Benefits and Team atmosphere
