Target

Executive Team Lead

June - August 2019 • Santa Rosa, CA

What I liked

The pay was really good and I liked the team a lot.

What I wish was different

I did not get enough leadership experience out of it. I was promised more opportunity and control over a real team but I did not really get that once I got to target.

Advice

Be more vocal about wanting to get more out of the experience. I think my mentor just did not really want to let go of her control, possibly because she was scared of me messing something up.

Stores Executive Team Lead

June - August 2019 • Phoenix, AZ

What I liked

I loved how I got to work in each department and see how everyone functions as a store, and as their own department. Every department has the same goals to meet, but run so differently. You really are exposed to varying management styles and get to compare and contrast how you would handle situations to how others handle them.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have had more of a mentorship throughout the program and had more future career-related conversations.

Advice

Put yourself out there. Ask questions, do the work yourself, step outside your comfort zones. Challenge your weaknesses. This is your opportunity to grow and develop, so take advantage of those around you to help you get to where you want to be; they want to help you!
