Software Engineer Intern

What I liked

I loved the work environment and the abundance of great places to eat in the city.

What I wish was different

I wish I had learned more backend coding skills.

Ask your tech mentor lots of questions and don't be afraid to ask for a new mentor if yours can't help you well enough. Also don't be afraid to tell your manager that you want to be doing something different than what they assigned you to.

What I liked

I appreciated how much Target cares about their employees which is reflected in their benefits.

What I wish was different

I wish the job was not as high stress as it was. Many managers seemed so stressed that they took it out on us.

Advice

This is a well paying job but the fast paced nature of this job means that you are working for your money.

Grocery Stocker

June - July 2019 • Chico, CA

What I liked

I had great co-workers, the job was simple, customers were nice.

What I wish was different

I had to find another job as they docked our department hours, I went from having an average 30 hour work week to an 12-8 hour work week. I had to quit to find a job that gave more hours. The management gave out too many hours and then cut back departments that were not in "High demand".

Advice

If you start noticing a drop in your hours for no reason, bring it up immediately. Others that have worked there for years have said the hour cuts happen o almost a yearly basis. Only cashiers don't get hour cut.

Executive Team Leader

June - August 2019 • Levittown, NY

What I liked

I loved how the internship program was extensive and well thought out. Everyday I had different objectives that I was expected to meet and I learned about all the different departments in the store. Each week I had a meeting with my mentor and my Store Director and they provided me with feedback on what I did right and what I needed to work on. I felt that Target was really invested in me and my development.

What I wish was different

Since we only had 10 weeks and so much to learn, I would move departments very quickly which was a hard adjustment. However, I got used to moving around and it helped me be comfortable throwing myself into new projects.

Advice

Ask questions, and ask for help. Everyone is there to help you and want to watch you succeed. Also take time and really get to know the team members because when you start to actually lead a team they will respect you.

Cashier

September 2017 • New Berlin, WI

What I liked

I enjoy working at a place that I love. I get to help people locate items that I too may be interested in, so it's easier for me to inform them on the items.

What I wish was different

I wish that I was able to learn more departments so that I was able to work in other areas to help more guests that have questions about certain items.

Advice

Make yourself noticed by all the store leads. This can help get your name around the store to allow for you to possibly get to work in other departments, as well as become a trustworthy employee. Be as friendly as you can because that only can make your day better as well as others day's better.

Target cares about its employees and makes sure they do anything to help you succeed. Pay, employee discount, and benefits are very good too.

What I wish was different

The schedule is a little too dynamic for my liking, making it hard to plan out my week.

Advice

If you love Target, work there. It's a great place to work.
