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

    Pros

    The chance for advancement and the friendly atmosphere made it a joy to come to work. When I had to leave the Leesburg, Va branch, Target was very understanding and helpful.

    Cons

    There wasn’t a downside for me.

    Advice to Management

    I was last employed with Target in 2011. I know the store and would like to return to assist in its continuous growth. Please, consider re-hiring me.
