Executive Stores Intern

May - August 2017 • Tucson, AZ

What I liked

I liked that the internship was something new every day-- you go through a 10 week rotational program shadowing leaders in every department in the store. However, there was a lack of support from leadership to grow as an individual and develop as a leader within the company.

What I wish was different

I wish there had been more encouragement and effort from leaders to develop you as a future leader within the company.

Advice

Ask tons of questions, especially from team members. They know the store the most!

March 2018 - June 2019 • Topeka, KS

What I liked

The few other people on the style team.

What I wish was different

I wish target wouldn’t high raising the pay but dropping hours on every team member. Nobody is full time but management this makes it incredibly difficult for team members to keep their insurance and pay their bills.

Advice

Only work at target if you don’t have bills and just want something part time with no insurance.
