      Pay is good, time off is also good.


      Hours are long and scheduled overtime during busy seasons can be very difficult on work/home life balance.

        About a million "extras" double floor "break room" with ping pong, fireplace, locker room, showers, outdoor patio with basketball, life size chess, etc., in-company pharmacy, the list goes on and on. Most of the time if you want to be developed, you'll be developed.


        On paper Target is extremely attractive. It's a great place to get excited to work for when you first start, however when you really get into the day to day and see through the glamour everyone is over worked, micromanaged and trying to play the political game to get to the top. If you want to grow in the company worry about getting your managers to like you and you'll be just fine. There are plenty of people that shouldn't be in manager roles but their managers liked then so they became a leader. Also plan on working constantly because everything is a priority and there's no work life balance.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)



      Good morning! I had a final interview the other day where I was tasked with presenting a project I was to work on. I presented and was told that my project was refreshing, I anticipated questions, explained my assumptions and there were no questions. In your experiences, is this a good sign? They said they were interested in how I speak and think. Good? Bad? Indifferent? I know everything is a 50/50 shot, but this was the first time I've been in this position, so I'm kind of anxious. Thanks



      I recently completed a 3 round interview. As I didn’t get the job I asked for feedback from the hiring managers. One responded and told me they think I great job during the interview. I was friendly, personable & professional. Provided an depth look into your experience, explained how I can be an asset to the organization/team, and shared my desire to grow and develop along the way. But the main advice was that I didn’t fully or better explain why I left my last company. Any thoughts on this?

      I had a felony 20yrs ago and recently released. It would have nothing to do with these jobs. My history was stellar as industrial sales with engineering background, Now I want sales support positions which I have experience. I interview really well. I wait until an in person interview to bring this up so they have a better feel for me as a person. I am still navigating how and when to discuss this topic. I feel it needs to be brief and then pivot to how my skills can help the company.
